I loved me a Reverend new colours day!
Yep, although I'll refer to my NBD post rather than enthusing over the thing for paragraphs and paragraphs again here!
Not Yer Grandad's P-Bass - NBD Reverend M. Ndegeocello Fellowship
It's an absolutely fantastic bass.
The two new designs still haven't been approved
Looks like you guys have been busy enough!
Thundergun at last weekend's gig...
I'm looking to pick up one of these Reverend's, preferably a 5 string Mercalli. Anybody know of someone who might be interested in selling?
How many of you guys are actual professors?
I thought we all were here.
There used to be three college professors in the band. Now there's only one (the lead guitarist). But we haven't been able to agree on a different name. ;^)
I just found a great deal on a Reverend Mercalli 5 string off of Reverb and purchased it. Will report back when it comes in!
Nice!! tease us with some pics!!
Was in a nice store today and played some stingrays. And a cutlass.
Now I can honestly say I'm a reverend man!
yeah did that as well but before buying the Mercalli 5. Wasn't impressed by the MusicMan at all. Didn't get the Wow factor I got with the Reverends.
Still don't get the hype around MM basses, they're meh and certainly not up to their price, at least IMO.
I used to be a real EBMM man.
Stingrays in particular. Still have a 5 string Reflex.
Reverend basses just have this awesome modern take on a classic buttery tone.
I bought my Thundergun to be a backup bass for my Stingray. I ended up selling the Stingray and making the Reverend my primary.
I'm pretty sure I've read about it already- but what was your reasoning behind your change/love for the thunderguns?
We would love to hear about your role at Reverend and any tidbits about working at our favourite guitar design/maker!
I'm a big fan of the "blacked out" look, especially with pickguards.
So this one was perfect for me.
She's beautiful!! Congrats.
For the last several years I had been playing almost exclusively fretless, using my beloved Rob Allen MB-2, but I joined an Americana/classic rock band a year ago and that necessitated playing mostly fretted. I procured a Stingray, since I used to play one of those "back in the day" and loved that sound and it always felt natural for me to anchor my right-hand thumb on the bridge pickup. I used the Stingray for a few months with the new band but one day, the day before a gig, the wiring in the battery compartment crapped out, leaving the bass dead in the water. So I decided I needed a backup bass (maybe a Ray34). Then I decided to have the backup bass be passive. Then I decided it would be nice to have a neck pickup also, to take advantage of different tonal possibilities. I liked the look of the Reverends. Tried out a Dub King in a store and liked the quality, the neck width, the tonal options and that comfortable bridge pickup for my thumb (but I didn't want short scale). Then I saw a used Thundergun on eBay and took a chance. Very quickly I found myself leaving the Stingray in the case and using the Reverend. I love the quality and the way it sounds and feels and balances. I love that I don't have to worry about batteries or battery compartment wiring. Aesthetically, I dig Stingrays but I really love the look of the Thundergun: it is its own unique thing but also reminds me a little of a Tbird and of a P and of a J and of a Stingray.
