Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (166 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A true value, excellent bass"
Sound: Combo of pickups with independent control knobs offers a truly outstanding variety of tones, from bright and sizzly to dark and warm. I can play any style with this bass. A touch of overdrive really brings out the rockin' best of this bass, too. Feature: Great pickups, great tone control. Quality: Solid, sturdy; quality finish. Value: Having played it, I would expect this bass to cost MUCH more. The Wow Factor: Not bad looking in titanium, but I prefer the look of the F-series... just didn't want that active pickup hassle. Overall: I love this bass, my first 5-string. Love that low B, but also the high frets on the first string sound sweet enough to play bass leads on. Very flexible, high quality, great palette of sounds and easy to play. Flawless.
Style of Music: Eclectic, mostly rock

"Campbell has Heart attack due to shoking-ness of bass!!!"
Sound: This thing sounds amazing!!! Put it next to a 500 dollar 5 string you can't tell the difference. Somehoew this Majical device cancelss all buzzing sounds if moving cable in jack or standard cable buzz. Great J trebble and Great P punch. I love the low B. BYE 4 stringers. Feature: Everything is easy to use. It has all the features you need. BAsic which is perfect for me to make a great sound fast no matter what I play. Ease of Use: Simple!!! Nothing Comlicated at all!!! You can make any type of sound bass wise easily. Playable the second you get it. Quality: Everything was perfect nothing loose or anything. Except for a part on the bottom of the neck. it looks like the wood was sanded down. but still looks good. Gives it a natural look. Value: I would have thought it would be twice as much after hearing it. Even Dave Campbell had a heart Attack because he was so shoked as how chep it was. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had experience yet but I know ESP is always there becauseI have spoken to them before. They answer anything. The Wow Factor: It looks basic but has the ESP "Metal" playing look basic like I like it and sleek as well. Overall: I expect to be satisfied for years to came. This is nor beginner bas for me. I'm stuck now.
Style of Music: All rock and Jazz for school

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
