When my parents gave it to me for HS Graduation (mid 80's) & When I got it back off Ebay last year = '72 Triumph Bass
my 1970 Gibson EB-3
Man these basses are really taking me way back.
It's great to see the love for all these beauties!
Very nice, my '72s FG coloring is the same as yours. Mine is still all original and the rosewood fretboard is a little lighter shade.
What? Your wife?
Awesome! Great basses, could never give mine up.
You're local too.
If 1972 predates your wife of 27 years, then she was 10 when you married her??
I'm trying to do the math, but if she was born after '72 and been married for 27yrs, I come up with very underaged either way.
not to get off topic,but how is that marshall rig anyway??
i never here anyone talking about them around here,and i've always wondered how they sound
LOL! K, lemme clarify without the complicated math equations.
I got the bass when I was 16 (1976) & met my wife to be when I was 17 (1977).
So, the bass was pre-wife OR I've had it for 32 years.
I love it! There's a whole thread dedicated to Marshall Bass amplification at:
I discovered it at The Bass Place, in Scottsdale, after I had one of my basses set-up. I plugged into an MB4210 (2x10 combo, but the same exact head) to check the action and intonation, and I sat there playing with the amp for an hour. I was running a Sunn Coliseum 300 at the time and I liked, but didn't love it.
It has a tube preamp and a solid state power amp. There are two channels: Modern (which I describe as sonically transparent) and Classic (which is varying degrees of distortion). What makes this hybrid so cool is the Blend feature, which speaks for itself. I've made a little cheat card for the different settings I like for my various basses.
Go check one out for yourself...you'll love it!
sorry, I'm running out of room on my attachments!!
