Sandberg Bass: MarloweDK

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by QuadriProject, Aug 1, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    I received some photos and video links from Sandberg company.
    The presented bass is the MarloweDk model.
    There are also some "Making of" Videos very interesting.
    Let me know your opinions about this Bass.

    Meh! Looks like a Franken-bass to me. Not something I would go for. Sounds good though.

    This may be the first time in history that a player has received an endorsement based solely on youtube views. I'm not being sarcastic, I think it's quite an accomplishment and MarloweDK deserves it. Well done.

    I have learned a lot from his online lessons.

    The bass is nice, though I want the pink relic'd one he has on some of his videos. I have major GAS for a Sandberg.
  5. Nice bass, but the relicing always seems so pointless to me.

    I have not heard of marlowedk but looking like that a bass would need to sound extra good and feel extra good for me to be in any way interested.
    Relicing is just something I REALLY have no time for whatsoever.

    I wouldn't buy that, since I don't particularly like relic'ed stuff (or the price point) - though the vibration treatment they give the body wood is pretty cool.

    What I WOULD buy, is one of the new production line passive basses. Theyre cheaper than the normal Delano+preamp setup and the one I tried sounded and played stellar!

    Well Nick Latham won this bass in their vid competition, so u might want to ask him on facebook.
  11. Fancy way of saying 70's style pickup position.

    It's an Alder/Rosewood J with 70's style pickup positioning.

    I like a good relic'd bass. I also like white basses with rosewood fret-boards and MOP block inlays...it's just a look and all about a certain aesthetic. Relic'ing really seems to polarize TB'ers something dreadful. I would get it if someone tried to pass off a relic as a real old Fender, but otherwise, it's like a color/wood choice. To each their own.
