  • I CAN'T WAIT TO OWN IT

    As reviewed by Johnny on 5/21/2010

    This Music Man has some weird style but a lot of tone. With a 4-band eq, active and passive modes this thing is super versatile. This bass is really good for some slappin n poppin. I don't own it but played it for a while in guitar center. I fell in love with this bass rite away. I can't wait to save up for this baby.

  • bass playing at warped

    As reviewed by john on 12/6/2010

    I went to warped tour last summer and found my way over to the ernie ball van with all of the basses and guitars outside for people to test. i played all of the basses and have an anti-flag signed stingray myself but i must say the big al felt amazing in my hands and super powerful with each strum. every setting i chose impressed me (which isn't very good of an opinion because i had headphones on but was surrounded by stages playing at warped tour, but it still sounded amazing with the volume all the way turned up) ive played it at guitar center too and it was the exact same feel, just power. the only downside to it is that it's expensive, so yeah!

  • Weak Passive Mode

    As reviewed by Aaron on 6/12/2010

    This bass has the excellent construction quality that is typical of Musicman instruments. Its pickup/preamp layout allow for a number of excellent usable tones. With that said, the passive mode is very weak and has a very poor tone. I even mentioned to the salesman (who seemed very excited by the bass) that the passive tone seemed weak. He agreed stating, "it's passive mode, all passive modes are weak." However, this is simply not true. There are several basses on the market that sound just as good in active mode as they do in passive. With that said, the tones that are available in active mode are excellent. However, if you purchase this bass, change/test your batteries regularly. The passive mode might be able to bail you out at a gig if the battery fails, but even the least aware audience is certain to notice the extreme loss of volume, punch, and clarity that results from going into passive mode.
