Nice Bass

By Mr. Metalhead231

from Franklin, NJ

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

Ya I used this bass when I visited Guitar Center and it was pretty good. It had a nice heavy sound for my heavy style of playing which I liked. It looks cool too. Overall it was a great bass. To keep it short.

great bass for the price.

By Dimbagstheman

from Orangevale, CA

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is really good if your into metal. The bass has a good style (especially if dimebag darrell is your hero). Im suprised that this bass has good action especially for the price. It has a good clear sound to it, and has really good pickups. Overall this bass is great for the price and you should get one if your into metal, and playing the bass.

Killer bass.

By bass player anonymous

from whidbey island, WA

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass has a unique dean sound that always blows my mind when i play walk by Pantera on it, not to mention its classic shape. I have played 5 shows with this bass and it has sounded great at all of them because Its great with melodic and deep rhythmic bass lines. I recommend this bass to anyone who loves metal, thrash, or even just ZZ Top because either way its a killer bass.

A Metal Man's Metalman

By musicdude40

from Texas

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is by far the best I've played. I recently bought it and I can already tell a HUGE difference between it and my Peavey Foundation. It has a much deeper, heavier sound than the Peavey and it looks about 2 million times better. When I don't want to disturb people with my amp, I plug it into a C-Tech Pocket Rock-It amp and the features on that make this bass sound even better. If you need a cheap, good bass with a heavy metal sound, this is your best buy. Trust me on this one; you won't be disappointed.

For what you pay......... VERY NICE

By MadMan8567

from St. Charles, IL

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

Just looking at it you know it'll catch the eye. The sound is overall very good. It is a little longer than most basses, but with the right amp this ML will become your tool to rock!

awsome

By Ben stanton

from cincinnati ohio

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

Now the reason I gave this 4 stars is because this is not deans best bass.But I will say that it plays better than all the basses I've played at guitarcenter's store which includes a warwick. This bass has a low action it's very easy to play. you can play a lot of fast stuff on this. Over all its a great bass for the money. because it plays like a 600 dollar bass.

awesome axe

By washington g.

from bronx, ny

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

this is a very good bass .. it was a backup to my vintage warlock bass, so far it has become my primary, since my warlock is in need of minor repairs. i love the action, low profile maple neck, very fast action.the body design is wicked, (despite that im not a dimebag fan, sorry). the only things i dont like about this bass is: 1) the nut- its made of plastic. my original warlock that got stolen, (prior to the warlock i had mentioned before) had a brass nut. this will wear out sooner than expected. 2) the humbucking pickup - isn't too sensitive to tapping, hammer ons, and vibratto. you will need a pedal to boost these actions, has a good crunch to its sound tho, great for rhythm. also this bass is HUGE. not heavy just really long. despite its length, it only has a 22 fret neck. thats all. thrash till death!!!

Its Pretty good

By Uber Moose

from Rockford MI

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

From what I've Played with it I feel i can review it. Its Blend pick up limits you to pretty much JUST RYTHM. That means no solos or bass rifts that requier more than one string. You Can still play them but they wont sound as good as a regular non-blend pick up. In fact i couldnt even tune it by ear cuz when I hit 5 ,and open on the higher string both strings blended together and i couldn't tell if the higher string was too high or too low. it just sounded bad and out of tune. It does however preform great in low tunings! even Drop-A. I like the "Deans Flying V" Model more. You Play both and decide.

Plays Great,but...

By Daniel Thompson

POSITIVE: I have this bass and i love the way it sounds, it doesnt buzz when pressing on the fretts. i have played a few live performances with it and i love the way it sounds. NEGATIVE: the neck is soo long and when i play it hurts my hands and my arm gets tired from holding it yp so high. and i couldt find a case for it because it was so long

Great Price, Bad Bass

By Max Whited

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

I was very dissapointed when I got this thing in the mail. I'll just cut to the chase on this one. The bass is large, clangy, heavy, and hard to use. The bass itself has alright tone, although it's really only good for a driving sound. BUT, the one thing I WAS impressed with about it is its performance in drop tunings. It can even go into drop A. But I really don't think it's worth the tradeoff. You really won't shred on this thing. But, if you are a stage lemon and are large and like to play in drop tunings, (like several death metal bassists.) Then this is the bass for you.

The new metal Standard for Bass players

By the "KILL" tells all...

from Detroit

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

Let's cut to the chase. I've been playing metal bass for a long time. For me "BALANCE" is everything. All I had to do was move the top strap button to the bottom neck bolt position. Now it rides better than anything else in my arsenal. With a little set up adjustment fine tuning the action plays like butter. I especially like the compound neck radius. One word of warning. This monster is longer than a classic old Buick so while your busy throwing down and trashing about, be carfull NOT to knock out your guitar player or crash over some cymbal stands. Rock ON DEAN!

The Dean of Basses

By Kevin Fransen

from Peotone, IL

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

This is probably the best bass I have ever had my hands on. I went to the store and saw a Getty Lee Jazz Fender and played it. It was nice, but the price tag said 799.99 and I looked up and saw this. The Dean looked better felt better and sounded better. I would not trade this for any other bass.

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

So, I've had my eye on this bass for a while now, and got to try it out 2 days ago. It sounds great (amazing for it's price), and very suitable for heavy styles of playing. I've recently been picking up bass, and I think this is one I'll be sticking to.

OH YEAH BABY!,,!(*,,*)!,,!

By Dom Pitch

from Levittown,PA

Comments about Dean ML Metalman 4-String Bass Guitar:

I absolutly love this guitar! Because when I played for the first time it sounded so GREAT and the features are great as well too. But what got my attention was the price and its looks I mean wouldn't you agree that it looks nice. And i'm so excited because in a day or two I AM GETTI'N ONE. OH YEAH BABY!!! I think it is a good bass to get because they are not as fragile as the B.C Rich Warlock and believe it or not I actually was going to get one but I didn't because I read and heard that they have problems in a couple of years thats why I didn't. All I have to say....I might write when i get it. Bye.
