PLAY AS YOU PAY
Are you ready to embark on your own musical journey? You're going to need a comfortable, playable bass guitar, a portable practice amp, and some helpful accessories to tie it all together. That's where Silvertone comes in. Their electric bass package has everything you need to unlock the mysteries of low-end tone. After that, it comes down to disciplined practice, creative experimentation, and nerves of cold steel. Actually, you don't really need nerves of cold steel. Leave the drama to your frontman.

The Revolver Bass

To get you started, the Silvertone LB11 pack comes with the Revolver four-string bass. The traditional Precision-style neck, body, and pickups provide comfortable balance, warm resonance, and fat tone. With three colors to choose from, there's a Revolver to fit any style. Modern Rock & Rollers will dig the Cobalt Blue, and old-school R&B cats will appreciate the Sunburst finish. These colors probably aren't tuff-enough for the Metal-heads, but they'll find the Liquid Black version looks pretty menacing.

Easy-To-Use Controls

As a beginner, you'll want to start simple. The Silvertone LB11 Revolver's stripped-down controls let you dial-up some nice sounds without any unnecessary complications. Use the volume knob to adjust the amount of signal sent out of your bass, and the tone knob to change the color of that signal. Roll the tone back for a round, thumpy sound, or bring it forward for a pointy, bright attack.

A Solid Practice Amp

Of course, all that good tone is wasted if you can't hear it. You'll need an amplifier to boost the sound of your bass. Say hello to the BAXs bass amp, included in the LB11 package. This amp is perfect for beginners, for a couple of reasons. First, you'll probably be taking lessons somewhere. Since the BAXs is small and portable, you can bring it to class and get the exact same sound as when you practice at home. Second, it's not very loud. This may not seem like a benefit, but your friends and family would disagree. As with any musical instrument, your first few sessions are going to be pretty rough around the edges. Fortunately, there's a built-in headphone jack to keep the sound to yourself, when necessary. Once you've ironed-out the biggest wrinkles, you can get a bigger amp, crank it up, and play some gigs. Until then, this amp will take care of you.

Included Accessories

Most beginning musicians aren't sure what accessories they really need, but the Silvertone LB11 package removes all the guesswork. You get a handy gig bag to protect your bass as you carry it from place to place, and a cable to plug your Revolver into the amp. There's also a nylon strap for when you want to rock standing-up. Sling it down low, Ramones-style, or cinch it way up high like the Jazz-nerds do. As long as it's comfortable for you. The included tuner will keep you on-pitch, which is one of the most important skills a beginner bassist can learn. You can't know for sure if you're doing it right unless your instrument is in tune.

To Pick, or Not

Bass purists will tell you, "real bass players" only use their fingers. Still, there are plenty of groove-meisters out there who use a pick. It's not really about speed; you'll be able to get busy either way, with some practice. Picked strings produce a tight, crisp sound that you can't really duplicate by playing fingerstyle, though. Pluck way back by the bridge, and you'll hear the difference. Use your fingers, then give the included picks a try, and decide which you prefer. Better yet, master both techniques so you can add the right character to any song. Finally, the Silvertone LB11 includes an instructional DVD with over two hours of music lessons. Pop it in your DVD player and jam along. There's no substitute for a good teacher, but these exercises will help strengthen your hands and increase your musical knowledge. With some effort and patience, you'll soon be building your own unforgettable bass lines!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1487 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best Bang for your Buck"
Sound: The sound is exactly like a P-bass for a lot less, you can get a wide range of sounds out of this thing after you play with the amp a little, also when the tone knob is turned up you get a reasonable amount of static from the amp. Feature: Standard p-bass setup- one volume and one tone knob, doesnt give you a whole lot to fool around with but thats what effects pedals are for You wont use the accessories really. Ease of Use: This bass has a fast neck and is nice and light a very playable bass for beginners. Quality: This thing is built like a rock, its been tossed around and fallen, and it hasnt broke a thing. The finish is spotless Value: No other deal like it Manufacturer Support: Ive never had to deal with them The Wow Factor: I got the sunburst and maybe its just the sheer fact its an instrument but a ton of girls have come up to me wanting to touch it. Overall: overall its awesome
Style of Music: Rock Alt, JAzz

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A very good basic bass."
Sound: This is a good value. Terrific bass for the money. I wouldn't bother with little amp. It good enough for practice, but it's just too small to be good for anything else. Try to buy this bass seperately. The accessories aren't worth bothering with. Feature: Forget the accessories. You won't use them. Quality: I bought two of these basses for loners. They had been previous demos, and had some pretty nasty belt buckle scratches on the back. I put new strings on them and now I have been recording with them for the last three years without any problems. I have more expensive basses but I am very pleased with how well these perform. Value: Buy this bass seperately. Forget about the accessory package. You'll save yourself a few nickels. You'll be wanting a good and bigger amp anyway. Very cheaply priced, but a very nice bass. Good enough for anything. Manufacturer Support: Never have had any trouble. The Wow Factor: It's good looking. Not a technical marvel, just a basic good bass. It is a workhorse that won't make you puke over the price. Overall: I'm very pleased with this bass. It's basic It's cheap to buy. I don't have get stressed when I let other people play it. It's reliable. It does a very good job.
