    I have been playing my candy apple red Roscoe Beck 5 for a while during our praise/worship service, it holds its own just fine, I had my concerns at first about it being to aggressive since it does have that Fender sound, but no worries, it works very well for the up temple stuff as well as the slower worship songs, I just think I could use a outboard pre-amp just to get a bit more over-head, we will see :cool:
  2. awesome. What church you go to?
    If you're ever in Chattanooga come down to Brainerd Hills Presbyterian Church :cool:

    I've used the RB5 as my main church bass for a while, its an amazing bass, like you said I think its great for both the high powered energetic stuff and the slower stuff, recently I switched over to a MTD535 just due to the light weight and better playability (I can't say it sounds a lot better, it sounds different).

    My favorite basses are MTD 535 and Fender RB5. I love 'em equally well with any type of music.

    May I recommend the Sadowksy outboard pre? I use it with my Jazz bass and I play in church often.
