Congratulations. Beautiful bass...went with the 3 band over the programmable?
Awesome! Nothing quite like it!
I love it!!! Congrats, Lee!
I went with Gerald's recommendation.
Gerald also sent me....
Couple of shirts and cups!
I don't know why but I have this itch to get a 4-string Diva. I've never played a fretless but am willing to dive in.
I know why. lol
HA! What's your theory?
Oh, it's no theory, it's a fact. Once you play a Diva, it haunts you forever unless you eventually buy one. lol
Anyone string their Diva 5 E to C?
Selling the bass on the far right. Also have a fretless neck made specifically for it. Get
2 basses in one. Look it up on Talbass.
Marleaux Diva or fretless Custom Consat? Has anyone played both? What are the pro’s and con’s of each? Does the Diva have a thicker neck? What is the difference in sound? Is the Diva as comfortable to play ergonomically? I can’t find any demo models in the NYC area. Thanks.
I wish I could find either of those just to try them out! Unless I make the drive out to Clausthal-Zellerfeld though might be a bit tricky
From what I've heard/read, the Diva is super comfortable in terms of ergonomics (as are all Marleaux basses from what I gather) and the neck is slightly slimmer than the Contra. Sound-wise there are plenty of demos to be heard - try checking out the thomann.de page, they usually have some Marleaux basses in stock and often have samples so you can compare!
i think the diva lacking options like active pre and limited to 19mm string spacing makes it a little less flexible than the constat or a stradi for that matter...
I don't feel it really make sense to try and compare the Diva to the Consat or Stradi in terms of more/less "flexible". Different tools for different jobs IMHO.
Not sure what FWIW means, but I agree with you. They are different
I bought the diva with no consideration for any other bass... because of how it looked & the niche / genres it would fit in for me...
the only other fretless’ I’d consider currently are the Stradi, Fodera, Dingwall or Fbass... all for different reasons / applications
Just my taste & what I know in my limited experience
One can always add a pre to the diva but for a 5 string I prefer 18mm spacing & since the OP is considering the 2, these are possible considerations for them...
I live to try different Basses from all over ... if this one sells, I’ll likely invest in something else awesome to try .... I reserve the right to not sell ... as noted in this string... they are addictive & haunt you once you’ve played one... if I was a rich man... I’d just keep it.. but my desire to try so many outweighs my desire to keep any one particular bass
sorry, "for whatever it's worth"
Stupid question but I have to ask: is the Mbass only manufactured as a 5-strings bass of there as well 4-strings specimen around to be looked at?
I have seen and played 4, 5, and 6 string MBasses
