    So today I went to my local GC to pick up a Rogue Fretless bass I ordered for $109. on sale. As fate, or simply GC, would have it, I opened the box and inside was a white Rogue 5 string fretted bass. Apparently there was a bad link on their order app. Anyway while there ,as the young lady was processing a full credit refund, I came across a Ibanez TMB100 and plugged into a Rumble 100. I brought her home with me. I figure I can learn to play a Fretless in my next life time. I have a black taped set of LaBella Flats inbound from Amazon. Life's been good so far :)

    I am happy to be on that wagon. Just learned about active EQ and batteries. Thought I had blown a speaker .

    I love it. Tapes weren't so great, but flats sound very nice. Right now, I have pressure wounds on it. It's good, but a little clicky. I think I'm going to go back to the flats.

    Really like this. Wish this version came in short scale.
     
  8. Ha, yeah...it's pretty big dude. Even for a bass. But it plays nice, looks nice, and sounds nice.

    Ibanez trumps Rougue everytime.

    No question about it. I mean I knew that going in of course. I wanted to try a Fretless but didn't want a large investment ($109) When I was offered the discounted diff on the TMB100 I jumped. I do have to get use to active EQ adjustments. I keep over driving my small practice amp. My wife thinks the amp is bad....should I say nothing and pick up a rumble? Lol

    That's probably as close to an approval as you may get. I'd say "YOU'RE RIGHT", drag her down to GC and go for it! ;)

    I should huh? Actually this Washburn VBA is a great little practice amp. The problem is resolved with the Ibanez by simply adjusting levels. I'm fortunate that when I decide to buy a Rumble 100 I will get zero flack. I simply have no need for a larger amp at the moment
     
  14. I'm sorry to do this but...


    No pics, no bass!

    I quieted my 100 down by putting on GHS Bassics. Still get snarl but also get mellow.

    These Ibby TMBs are really nice!. I have the 600 and it easily sits with my pro fenders. Great bass IMO.
