    Has anyone out there ever owned or tried a Reverend Rumblefish? What did you think?

    Here we go again!!!Dave Siff is actually selling one of his on Bassgear.com
     
  4. It's for sale here, too, down in the classifieds.
    SugarLounge, do a search and you'll find a lot of discussion on the 'Fish, but I can tell you they are great basses. I just can't afford to keep two of 'em right now!

    SugarLounge,After you read the old thread about the fish,you may think Im the "Anti-fish"but thats not true.Just make sure you find one thats set-up properly before you pass judgement.And draw your own conclusions.
    I only have experience with the 5 string.

    I've had 2 different 5-string 'Fish (one of which came to me by way of Dave)...both were great, especially if you figure in the "bang-for-the-buck". They're as good or better than many basses which cost much more. The alternative construction takes a little bit of getting used to, but after that, no problem. Big attention-getters, too.

    I have had the blue 5 string 'fish now for over a year. We lived through being dropped and cracked because of my ignorance (didn't put strap locks on it until after repairs).

    Great sounding, not tremendously versatile but has a few extremely useable sounds. Tight B string. Very punchy, extremely easy to play, different looking, jury out on whether it's cool looking or not, I personally don't care. There's a brief picture on my band's website in the introduction part that shows me playing the fish late last year at a gig. thecrowdpleasers.net

    Bang for buck extrordinaire. Don't ever , ever, drop it on a hard surface!!!!! Have had nothing but compliments on it's sound but I also know that using it through two EA cabinets don't hurt it!!!

    If you don't want to spend a bundle and like being and using something different, Go Get it Girl. If you're a conservative Fender lover at heart, change your attitude. This bass will out perform any passive fender except a Roscoe Beck for several hundreds less.
