  • Ibanez SR305E

    Ibanez SR305E - "2 necks in 2 years failed" has images

    03/21/20

    Although it looks and sounds much like the other SR basses, the 305E specifically in Pearl Fade White has now had necks fail 2 times on me in 2 years. Technician believes it is a manufacturing flaw and will be replacing with a different model, SR375 …

  • Harley Benton PB-50

    Harley Benton PB-50 - "How do they do it (and make a profit)?"

    02/12/20

    I won’t bother with the usual pros and cons (in fact, there aren’t, as far as I’m concerned , any cons) but, as a bassist for nigh on 60 years, I’d just like to say that this bass is, quite simply, fantastic value for money. Buy one or even two!!…

  • Ibanez EDB605

    Ibanez EDB605 - "After fifteen years... yes, it's that good. "

    12/28/19

    Tone for days, reliable, versatile, comfortable and nearly indestructible. I've been loving this Ibanez as my main bass for 15 years. Battery life is amazing. Needs intonation about every five years at most. Stays in tune like a beast of burden, soun…

  • Boss GEB-7 Bass Equalizer

    Boss GEB-7 Bass Equalizer - "One of the best equalizers on stage"

    12/16/18

    I bought this pedal (pretty recently) and had a few gigs. I've got to say, at first it took me a while to get used to this pedal. But once I've got used to it - This pedal is a game changer. If you're a performing bass player and you want to control …

  • Markbass Compressore

    Markbass Compressore - "MarkBass compressore is a workhorse on stage "

    11/12/18

    For almost 5 years, I used this compressor in countless gigs and made countless recordings with it. By all means, this compressor is the real deal for me. It’s a fully featured, housed in a steel box workhorse that won’t let you down on stage (if you…

  • Peavey 115 BVX

    Peavey 115 BVX - "BVX 115 and TVX 410 (4 ohm)"

    10/27/18

    A fellow Bassist and friend sold Me a BVX and a TVX for $140 because they were 4 ohms so He had to use 2 heads to run them, they were too heavy, and He needed the space. They both are great sounding cabs. If I only use one I use the BVX. To My ears i…

  • Ibanez JTKB200

    Ibanez JTKB200 - "Won't let you down"

    10/01/18

    This is a great Bass for any circumstances. It's solid and reliable, it looks retro enough if you need retro but standard enough for anything else. Inexpensive enough for a beginner but it wouldn't look out of place on a big stage. it has passive pic…

  • Peavey Zephyr

    Peavey Zephyr - "well made but a bit heavy"

    09/23/18

    I got this second hand at very reasonable price so take that into account in the value for money rating. I got it mainly on the name, I used to play drums in a band years ago and the Bass player played a Peavey T40 which he really rated at the time a…

  • B.C. Rich NJ Beast Bass

    B.C. Rich NJ Beast Bass - "BC Rich NT Beast Bass"

    08/28/18

    Excellent Low, especially for metalheads. Its price is good, because in Europe it is 700 EUR without box. Excellent and overwhelming sound.I recommend it!!! BC Rich siempre ha sido infravalorado, pero esto está mal. Son intrumentos extraordinarios y…

    Shine SBA-526 TBK - "My favourite bass (and I have 8!)" has images

    08/10/18

    I came across this model some 14 years ago when writing for a U.K. instrument magazine. I fell in love with the Shine range and currently have 6 Shine basses (five of them 6 stringers) out of my 8 total. I bought this model new in 2004 and it's becom…
