New bass, 6 choices

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by markjazz, Apr 25, 2002.


  1. Please help me out, i'm going to the shop tommorow
    and they have a couple of basses i have my eyes on.
    I want to buy one there but i'm not really decided on which one.

    Choices:
    Warwick Streamer Standard Demo
    Cort Artisan A5
    Bass collection II 5-string
    Ibanez SR1500
    Dearmond Starfire
    Yamaha TRB

    With the band i'm into funk-fusion-dance stuff.

    I'm leaning towards the Cort Artisan A5

    Which one do you like??


    Buy that one.
     
  8. I would personally buy the Yamaha, but if you like the Cort best, buy that one.
     
  9. People, thanks for of all the advice on this matter.
    I looked and tried some them of out.
    Most of them were 4-stringers,

    The Cort Artisan A5 was the old model with the Mighty Mite pickups and the old bridge not the Fortress one.

    The Yamaha TRB was a 4-string fretless, excellent condition but a 4-string and fretless which is a no-option for me.

    The 6 basses chooser topic.
    My last 6 choices post

    So my new bass is a Bass Collection 5-string.
    It has got a 2band EQ, passive-active switch,
    Gold hardware all around, and the bridge looks frightingly similar to a Yamaha TRB one except it is gold.
    One balance and one volume knob.

    Also it sounds surprisingly versatile, from rock to jazz and back.

    Serial number: 884911

    Also it has got a multiwood body, but i wouldn't know which kinds of wood were used.

    The neck is a 4 bolt-on

    Tonight I will post pics here.
