please post your opinions on how these 2 great bass builders compare
How about Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster instead?
They both seem to be reputable, skilled instrument builders. I unfortunately haven't been lucky enough to try out either! I was looking at the Valenti Megathread today....wow I really love those blue spalted maple bodies. Really nice stuff!
You DO realize that Nino Valenti worked for (or still does work for) Sadowsky, right?
Maybe that's why he opened this thread.
There both very sexy men.
pretty close in quality and playability. sadowsky makes threir own pickups and preamps, nino uses other brands. ive played about half a dozen of each and favored the valenti slightly.
Oh man... Always so great.
I would take a Valenti!
And Kevin just made their day!
are their tones similiar and feel? could you be more detailed please
I have owned both and liked both. The only issue with my Valenti was CNS (chunky neck syndrome), I'd love to try one of his newer models.
As for the Sadowsky I owned, I traded it away for something else (I don't even remember what I traded for) and kick myself for doing so.
Price is a huge difference, but sound and playability are both excellent.
* Both are VERY high quality.
* Both sound great, play great, and usually make the young girls cry.
* Valenti is more affordable, and in my opinion has the edge on the dollar-to-quality ratio.
* Valenti offers more options
* Sadowsky has higher resale value
It's a draw.
Nino is a little younger, so I think he'd have Roger by the 3rd round.
I wouldn't write Roger out so quickly. He could take Nino!

I own a Valenti #79
Both are close in quality and tone.
As said, Sadowsky has a better re-sale value.
My Valenti has a Sadowsky pre-amp VTC control.
And Sadowsky bridge.
It's so close to a USA Sadowsky it's silly.
Valenti has more bang for the buck.
Save $2000.00 and get a Valenti.
As long as everyone is happy !
I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for but there have been a few threads on this subject:
Hey Nino, are you feeling healthy these days? Just trying to establish a spread.
