    On Saturday I made a quick trip to my local music store and had enough time to try a Peavey 5 string Grind bass. Didn't plug it in, just played it.

    I was very, very surprised with how well it played. The longer scale seemed very comfortable and while the string spacing seemed a tad tighter than my Fender 5 Jazz bass it still felt good.

    Here was the funny thing (and I know this doesn't make much sense): As of lately I've been trying to learn the slapping style and I admit that I'm still a bit clumbsy with it. (Gotta start somewhere). But I wasn't nearly as clumbsy on the Grind bass as I was on my Fender. I don't know if the longer scale/differant tension had anything to do with it or not, but I was surprised.

    So what's the take on these basses? I did a quick search here and one member here said that they have a pronounced mid-range "growl" to them. That's the was I would describe my Squire P-bass. Not a lot of low end but it "growls" right thru and records great.

    I would like for my next bass to be a neck thru design and this is a possibility.

    Thanks for your time.
  2. The Grind is a very nice budget bass. I've played several and really liked them. Lightweight, nice tone, very comfy neck. Sounds like the body shape/neck just fits your style better (as far as slapping goes). P basses also aren't the easiest basses to learn to slap on either if that's what you're using.
