I might have mine for sale soon. The P5 on the website. Thinking about another one
Has Devon made a 6-string before?
Looks like a beauty! The pick up combo is exactly what I have been contemplating for my own Devon build. When are you expecting this one to arrive? Definately looking forward to hearing this one as well.
Hey Steve. Devon said early to mid summer. Possibly sooner. Sooner would be nice
I will post it here as soon as I get it. Not sure I will have it for that West shore gig though.
I played my Devon #1818 this morning and it just kills. I love it. I've had a lot of basses over the years and this Devon is in the elite mix for me.
If you have Devon #1803 or #1815 and would be interested in selling, drop me a PM.
Love that Antique finish.
Super wish I had money to give you for that!
What strings are you all using on your Devon's? I've decided I don't like the GHS Super Steels Devon ships with. Thinking maybe Pure Blues or GHS Pressure Wounds or maybe even just plain old D'Addario nickels.
I've used Pure Blues on all my Devons and Roscoes and it's a match made in heaven.
I use DR Fat Beams. They are my go to for all my basses though. Used to use SS Loriders but recently switched to the Fat Beams. They sound killer.
Yeah Fat Beams and Hi Beams have been my go-to on almost every bass but these Devon's are so bright already. Was thinking maybe something a little more mellow.
And yes. +1 on Fat Beams (or High Beams) over Lo Riders.
I generally use LaBella RX steels, but the last gig I played on mine has a tone of black lights and I had a set of the white neon DRs laying around so I put them on. They actually sounded pretty decent.
I'm a string snob for sure. There are very few strings that I think sound good. I was absolutely shocked at how good DR Pure Blues sound on my Roscoes. They project the entire spectrum, nothing is restrained or neutered..all the while without being harsh or ganky. Not many strings can do this.
The pure blues are nice as are the dadarrio nyxl’s
How do the NYXL strings compare to Pure Blues?
They are fairly similar to be honest. Those 2 sets are the only nickel sets I like. I used them for the same reason scuba is suggesting to slightly tame a really bright bass and both sets did a great job. Still gave some zing but not as zingy as steels. I liked them both way better than regular d'addarios. If you like the pure Blues you will probably like the NYXL's as well. They both feel great.
I'll probably give pure blues a shot again. It's been a while since I last used a set. I remember thinking I liked Pure Blues better than the NYXL's but I can't remember why. Might have been related to tension.
My bass turned out better than I’d hoped.
Anyone looking for a killer deal on one of the best basses ever sold on TB hit me up.
