... and came home with a Cort 35-series 5-stringer, and an Akai SB1 Deep Impact bass-synth ( this is the 4-string version... mine is 5-string ) here's the story So i went to Klomp Music in 's-Hertogenbosch to place my order for a Thumb Bolt-On 5 string bass.. it was a tad crowded, so i had to wait.. to kill some time i peeked at what basses he had in store.. there was this one bass that had wooden knobs, so i thought " what the ? lets try it.. ".. when i picked it up i was like " WHAT THE **** !?!? ".. that bass was light ! lighter than a 4-string P-bass !! so i plugged it in, struck the B-string and almost killed a little kid that was standing in front of the Ampeg 6x10" that was standing there Whoops.. sorry.. let me turn that volume knob down a little The bass had amazing lows and very plesant highs.. it really supprised me how good it sounded, even tho it's featherlight.. the sound was pretty similar to that of an Ibanez BTB 1005, which i happen to quite like so curious as i was i turned the bass over to see the price-tag.. it costed a staggering amount of money ! 628 euro ! woah ! that's real cheap for a 5-string bass with such good sound, and not to mention body-thru stringing.. woah.. so i drove home like a madman to pick up the yamaha and the ibanez.. and made a clean trade .. yamaha + ibanez for a Cort + Akai yeah.. i'm in love ! but i will get that thumb someday.. maybe next year.. who knows !
