Bass Player magazine doesn't give its prestigious Editor's Choice award to just any bass. Peavey is known for durable, extremely playable basses that both look and sound outstanding, but they really outdid themselves here. Peavey's 5-string Grind Bass features neck-through construction, which means that the mahogany neck goes clear through the body, instead of just being glued or bolted on. This leads to longer sustain and richer resonance. The wings connected to the neck--the rest of the guitar body--are made of imbuya, a wood so exotic that spellcheck doesn't even recognize it! Imbuya produces a tight, bright tone with plenty of bass. The Peavey Grind Bass 5 features 5 strings and 24 frets, giving you a two octave range (all the way down to a deep low B) for your bass lines, and uniquely sculpted neck allow easy access to the upper frets.

Sounds as Good as it Looks

All of the construction features, from the exotic wood to the sculpted body, contribute to giving this bass wonderful natural tones with a rich bottom end and fantastic resonance. It includes two humbucking pickups made with passive electronics, which frees you from having to bother with batteries . There are individual knobs to adjust the volume and tone of each pickup, giving you a lot of room to build the sound you want. Play with the knobs and you'll find everything from grinding, gutsy tones to clear, natural ones.

A High-End Bass at an Affordable Price

Many of the features found on the 5 BXP, such as the neck-through construction, are the sort you'd normally only expect to find on much more expensive instruments. The looks of this bass are just stunning, the playability is excellent, and the sound is terrific. This bass is affordable enough for novices, and has the chops to grow with you through the intermediate and expert stages as your skills improve. You would normally expect to pay a lot more to get an instrument of this caliber. Some say that Peavey could greatly improve their reputation simply by tripling their prices. But, luckily for you, they haven't. This bass is a steal.

"Peavey Grind Bass 5 BXP NTP 5-String"
Sound: Has a wonderful sound. I use with a " Direct-In Box" into a PA system for performing and recording. If you like playing jazzy, contemporary rock I feel it excels. Over all I have played everything from country, Grunge, and mainstream with no problems. If anything other Bass players have picked it up, played it and were amazed how nice it sounded. Some tried to talk me out of it. Yeah, nice try. Feature: I feel the components that were matched with it work very well. If any changes were made, would be with the resister / Capacitor network to give it just a wee more volume at full setting. The Tone Controls are right on for what ever balancing needed for Bass / Treble. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship and construction. The wood grain finish gives it a sexy look. Ease of Use: I do not see how anyone, even at a most basic novices of knowledge, could make bad music with this. The tones are smooth with zero back ground noise even at higher amp settings. The design of the neck and fret board makes it easy to play. No need to press hard anywhere on the fret board. No tricks needed to learn. It will spoil you. Quality: It is made very well and I suspect It will be my main instrument for many years to come. Value: Yes it is worth twice the price. I have picked up other Basses that cost more and better known and was astounded they did not play as well or sounded as good. Manufacturer Support: I have not needed to contact them. But it would concern me if they do not quickly respond to a need or question only they can answer. The Wow Factor: 10 out of 10. For me, picking it up and playing it stuck in my mind. I went in three times and it drew me like a magnet. I had to take it home. It just looks, sounds, and plays awesome Overall: I love this Bass. I also have a Ibonez 4 string that is a little better for edgier / Grungier sound. But this Peavey plays so smoothly and has a great tone balance for most all music I play which is hard and soft Contemporary . It is a steal for the price and I feel it would be a great deal at twice the price. Lucky for me it wasn't
Style of Music: Christian Rock, Rock, Blues, Lil Country.

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.

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.
