    I didn't want to post in the For Sale forum but I'm noticing quite a lot of Valenti sales (folks selling their Valenti's) and am wondering why? If any of the sellers would respond here, I'd appreciate it! I'm very interested in having Nino build me a bass but all these sales have got me thinking..................

    I may have to grab me a 'nother one! I love mine.
  3. I'm sure it's nothing more than a revolving gas phenomenon. This place is like a candy store and we are bunch of big kids :) There are many other fine basses making the rounds as well.

    I just took a look in the classifieds and did not think the number of Valenti basses posted was " alarming" ..
    just looked like normal turnover...

    I dont own one but from what I've read about Valenti Basses and knowing Nino first hand..
    you have nothing to worry about...

    Look at how many Sadowskys, MTDs, etc. change hands.

    Nino's basses are great.
  6. I'm sure if you followed the sellers, you might notice that they always cycle through the various basses that are their favorite, only to be sold when a new favorite comes along. Then they wish they hadn't sold it and may eventually acquire it again some day......GAS.

  8. I've played Valenti basses. Not only are they great bang for the buck, they are great bang PERIOD.

    No worries.

    As others have said, the instruments never get a bad review; just standard GAS cycles. I've been keeping an eye on V's basses for a while now and, if I'm ever able to get the funds together, I'm looking forward to getting one. The P4 (#039) on his site is causing me some severe GAS discomforts at this very moment. :)

    I can speak for myself. I've built a few basses and kept them for myself. #002, #005, #016 and #022.

    I currently still own and play #022 religiously. The other basses I sold because I bought something else. I usually try to turn something over to get something new or my wife will be very upset. :)

    Thats the only reason I don't have #12 anymore. That bass rocked.

    I'm not a seller but I placed my order about a month ago and all the Valenti's for sale doesn't concern me in the least. I've read enough great things about Nino's work here at TB to feel completely confident that it's going to be an awesome bass. Something tells me he might have learned a thing or two working for Sadowsky.

    I'm curious to see if my Sadowsky remains my "main axe" once the Valenti arrives. That's about the only concern I have LOL.

    I wouldn't worry a bit about it. From everything I've heard/read about Valenti basses, I would NOT be afraid to order one, and probably will be next spring.

    You have no worries buying a Valenti. I met Nino at Tom Bowlus's last get together, and not only was he a stand up guy, he was very happy to let us slobber all over his basses. He had a sadowsky metro hybrid with him, and, IMO, his P kicked it's butt all up and down the street.

    last couple of months the most sold bass on the TB classifieds was Sadowsky. yep, there were a ton of them recently passing around.

    so don't worry man, Nino seems like a good dude, and his basses look cool.
