  2. i have a samick bass. its..........eh. i only paid $170 so i should not be expecting great things. i plan to but some new pick ups in it unless i can get 400 for a washburn bass that i love now. i would say the samick is good for the price i paid.

    Samick makes more basses than any other manufacturer in the world. They build most other manufacturer's basses to spec. In fact, they make all the basses in the world EXCEPT the following:

    1. Fodera (made by Cort)
    2. Lakland (made by Warmoth)

    Samick does make the Lakland Skyline Series, however. So you got yourself a great bass.
     
  4. My ex-girlfriend had a samick bass which actually sounded pretty good. It wasn't one of their generic, budget brands, it was one of my expensive kinds. I had a nice low end, and you could really feel it in a mix. It wasn't the greatest bass ever, but it was still a pretty good bass with good playability.

    Hey Munjibunga
    Please clarify what you mean about Samick... I head someone else mention something about Samick making all other basses before, but I didn't really understand, or I thought he was just talking about the really cheap ones.
    thanks-

    Reportedly, Samick also makes the Brooklyn Bridge, and most, if not all, the swampland in Florida.

    All basses are Samick basses, with the noted exceptions. How much more clear can I be?

    Don't forget to mention that Peavey owns Samick, and also makes almost all of the bass amps on the market, except for Walter Woods and Glockenklang.

    Beg 'pardon, sir. Samick owns Peavey. Peavey owns Pedulla.
