    Copone model. This bass ties with #1 on my GAS list - a J equipped Zon Sonus 5. The body and headstock style are a little crazy and this bass is deceiving. I never expected something this wild looking to sound so good. The tone is indescribable. Thump, lows, low mids, smooth mids, balanced upper end...it's all there.

    This bass was made to destroy galaxies.

    Anyone else played a Copone or Le Fay? Paging JMX.

    i own a herr schwarz.
    nice instrument, especially for rock music.

    but i want to add a c-switch or a tone control in my active instrument.
    (because the electronic take 4mAh and you always have to change the battery :rolleyes: )

    I agree. The Copone does the rock tone very well and it actually cuts.

    A LeFay is definitely on my wish list! It's in the "When I Win The Lottery" section. :p

    I would go with the Pangton... partly because it has no headstock. I just love the sexy curves on that model. :eek: :)

    I`ve always heard good things about LeFays. However never had the chance to play one.

    I like the sound but I hate the way they play.
    It feels like a log.
