MGR/Morei Sky's review"Stagg BC300"

Stagg BC300
I bought the bass as part of a package from an online music store (the BC300 + a 20w stagg amp) for £189

When I bought the bass I was completely new to bass playing so when it came to finding & buying a bass, I pretty much went on looks (what do you expect from a wannabe rocker) & that’s the first thing I like about the bass, its well proportioned (the body doesn’t look to big for the fretboard/head, & visa versa) & the black colour gave it a commanding look.
As I progressed with my bass playing, trying out different techniques, I liked the fact the bass could adapt well for both slap & pick & being a tall person I found the size of the bass (a full 24 frets) was perfect for me (small people on the migit side will probably find it a bit big though).

Because I now have a wider knowledge & understanding of playing bass, i've found that there are a couple of things with the BC3000 that people will notice after a while.
First off, the strings didn't have that much clearance against the fretboard at the top, so when I played the lower notes (especially on the E string) it would occasionally vibrate against metal separators. It wasn't picked up on the amp so wasn't a major issue, but some people may find it annoying.
& also, playing the E & A string made the other 2 strings vibrate to a point when a very gentle humming was playing underneath the actual notes being played (hopefully that made sense).

I did have to tighten a few loose screws on the bass when I got it which makes me think that the bass wasn't put together with a great amount of care, although having said that, it has taken a few good knocks & its lasted me over a year without falling apart, which is always a good sign.
Its also relatively light so for beginners wanting to throw it about as if they were performing at Wembley stadium (come on, you know you have the same dream)

Some people may find it a bit of a "mar-mite" bass, your either going to love it or hate it.
Overall, its perfect for beginners, especially if you buy the package with the amp (20w amp for a beginner package is almost unheard of) but as you progress with your playing, you'll begin to notice your out-growing the bass, but hey, you can't run before you can walk & progressing stage by stage is the best way to go if you want to become the next bass legend.
A good price for a good bass.

MGR/Skit's review"Stagg BC300"

Stagg BC300
I bought this from eBay for £89 + P+P

Very light weight, Excelent colour (purple) and the fact it has 24 frets.

The construction and the fact that it dents / chips rather easily.

Poorly put together.

Action was far too high, and the volume/tone pots and the Input both came loose.

Luckily I know how to fix these things but if someone else who didnt know howto this could cost them an extra £30 or to get it correct professionally.

A really nice bass if you know how to set it up yourself and you can live with dents/chips otherwise is a bit of a problem.

Got this from Duck Son And Pinker in Gloucester with an amplifier and a bag, and a strap, and a lead and a useless pitch pipe all for £179.

It is a good weight. Plays quite well, stays in tune. Don't bother trying to tune it with the pitch pipe though. Body shape is nice but nothing special. The amplifier is surprisingly good. It has a 24 fret neck, but who gets that high on bass?

The headstock is a silly shape, but i've seen worse. The middle control knob came loose, but it's still intact. A washer rattles around underneath one of the string posts, and the pickups aren't put in very well (You can push them in) and the wiring is sub-standard. But none of your friends will be amazed at a Stagg, it's like showing them an Encore or a Conrad. The sound is not bad, very standard, nothing special. Its quite precise but if you want pure bass tones look elsewhere.

Construction isn't actually that bad. The body isn't too heavy, and the headstock is quite well balanced. I have had the same strigns on it nearly a year and they always stay in tune. I've banged it against the wall a couple times and it's fine.

This guitar is an inadvertant mistake. Not bad for a beginner, but there are others in the same price range which can last you forever; such as the Ibanez GSR whatever. Or even a Squier P-Bass is more worthwhile. But, I suppose your getting a gig bag and amp, so it's half-worth it.

MGR/Luke's review"Stagg BC300"

Stagg BC300
I purchased the stagg bass from an ebay auction for £87 for a beginning bass.

The four strings are well spaced and is very simple to use for a beginner. As I started with a plectrum the bass was ideal - it was quite aggressive and easy to play with a pick. It looks pretty good and the colour (purple) was really suited.

As it is a cheap begginer bass it lacks a lot of tone and has a lot of fuzzing on the first two frets of each string and from the 8th fret to the 13th frets on each string.
The layout of the pickouts also was annoying. The neck was not very well built as it get getting out of shape and reverting to bad fuzzing.


Cheaply manufactured, but still looks pretty good. Good for a beginner, but someone with experience it is a bit tacky and cheap. The input jack went within a month! Two strings stretched in 5 months!

In summary I find the stagg BC300 to a brilliant bass for the beginner who wants to get to grips with bass playing - I wouldn't have purchased a different on to start with. However, if you have already got a bass or guitar go for something more expensive and better built.

MGR/Sarry's review"Stagg BC300"

Stagg BC300
This is my first bass. It's shop-bought for around £200, thats with an amp and leads etc included.

I think this is a perfect bass for beginners and especially girls, as the neck is nice and thin, and the frets are smaller than on the average bass.
I've found it much easier to play than a P-bass.

The only thing I don't like is the fact that I can't find an allen key small enough to raise the action.

It's made realy well (in taiwan), and it can take loads of knocking. I'm constantly hitting against walls and stuff, and so far there's no dents.

I'm really glad I chose the bass, as it's the perfect size for my little hands. I would recommend it to other small-handed people.
Also, I got it in black, and it looks awesome!

R2b2g51's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" China has changed!"

Stagg BC300
sleeve type master classic
Chinese manufacture which is no longer a pejorative term, let's be honest
145 euros !!!!!

UTILIZATION

the handle is good to excellent, it may happen that we should play with trussrod and that it corrects the radius

SOUNDS

Do not expect wonders, I put BMG

OVERALL OPINION

Unbeatable value for money, to advise on electronics for customization; regarding wood nothing to say, Stagg hides nothing; other brands "prestigious" does not show:
Fender, Ibanez, and even with these sleeves Stratobond Martin ....
As subcontractors we were treated in Mexico (mostly Fender) and Korea, Indonesia and China today .... tomorrow it will be India or Brazil
Ds since the specifications are met ....

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Yes but with some changes"

Stagg BC300
slim sleeve 24f. After setting c is playable. mikes ... Ben is the sound that comes out ...
c is the rest of classic and cheap

UTILIZATION

handle really pleasant, the strings are all the same spaces, must love. I love that c is the weight, really lightweight! microphones for sound source is a bit too rough for me.

SOUNDS

Again, not so good with microphones origins. I've changed for EMG active. A treat for jazz rock blue

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it a year. 80 euros with a cover warwick and rope games. I have tried different basses (even rick ') end I prefer the comfort of the game bc of course change of micro almost mandatory. A small adjustment of the handle and jumper. Mechanical change by Warwick and Straplock. After all that c is nickel, blues jazz rock, although this depends on the amp used. therefore low emg pj set + + and other mechanical = 250 euros. that happiness, I love it. report quality excellent price after mod.

Stagg BC300
Frabique asia
24 frets, 3 pickups types 2 and 1 PB JB liabilities.
Alder body
A volume knob for each pickup and one tonalitbr /> A race between the Jazz and Precision quite pleasant.

UTILIZATION

The neck is very pleasant compared to other in this price range that are longer think about the board full of nails ...
You can access aisemment until the 18th box, the heel is fine.
It is very light and the body is petit.L set is well made, it's solid.

SOUNDS

They agree fairly well with all styles of music.
I play on an amp Gallien and no problem
I get sound clear and precise with a setting like jazz: a bit of treble and mids not very serious or if a more fatty metant the medium thoroughly, at least treble and the bass has background
this bass is fair and appropriate for START ;-)

OVERALL OPINION

A good bass for debuter.Le everything is solid and ergonomic.
200
For beginners, I think it's better bass sound and light rather than a bass that would best microphone because he could change the microwave later and have a low quite suitable.
