Who here has been lucky enough to play/own a Peavey B Quad?

    I have heard millions of stories about them, and I was just wondering who all has ever played Brian Bromberg's basses?

    It's no preference to my personal tastes, I am a Fender man myself, I was just wondering who all has had experience with them.

    I used to own one. It was a 4 string fretless with a clear finish.

    Nice weight and balance. I once strung it with Nylon flatwounds and got some interesting sounds. I can't seem to recall anything remarkable about it. I never used the Stereo panning feature. My only design complaint is that the lower horn on the bass would jab my leg in the sitting position.

    I sold it to a friend who then sold it on. I guess I'd have kept it if it were a B-Quad 5, which is what I'd love to pick up one day. Still, My Zon keeps me very happy, so I don't miss the Peavey much.

    Dean has come out with a Brian Bromberg model, which reproduces a lot of the B-Quad's features, minus the Graphite neck. I wouldn't mind checking one of those out either.
