a great bass for beginners, and the amp is great too. just get a new strap and a cable and your set.
The sound is great, although its a passive pick up bass it has a smooth heavy low tone and a punchy high treble tone. i would change the strings and flatten the neck. like high frets on the e string get buzzy. The amp is great. definatly worth the money for an beginner.
The tone knobs on the bass make it easy to find the sound you need. only complaint is there's no volume knob. the amp is great alothugh its small it has a clean tone. and if you need crunchy trebley tone just turn the effecs up to 10 :). the strap and the cable ,however, are garbage and should be replaced right away.
Ease of Use
the day i got it i knew close to nothing about bass. i watched the video and played along with it. i was almost an expert after about a year of lessons.
the bass itself is the best you can get out of a beginner package. ive had it for around 3 years now and it just died on me a week ago. Im taking it to the shop to fix it, and ill be using it again and again.
GREAT for a beginner. think about upgrading when you start playing shows though. after about 5 shows i needed to upgrade. i now have a fender deluxe p bass and it plays almost the same as this. oh and DEFINATLY upgrade the amp. its great for a while but youll need a louder one eventually
never used it.
The Wow Factor
