This bass is awesome!! Great tone, awesome looks, I would buy this bass again and again. I got mine used, but it was like new and saved a lot of money. Good feel to it, easy to play neck. You will look good on stage too :) this bass is Loud!! I play mine though a Ampeg amp sounds SOOO good. If I were you, BUY this bass it's worth it.
I've been a Peavey amp user for years, and now I'm finally getting myself one of their basses. The Millennium AC BXP is a FULL FEATURED instrument that has more bells and whistles than anything else in this price range, including the quilted top. And they play beautifully. If you're looking for a pure-tone instrument, you won't find it here. But for such a low price, the 3-tone active preamp and Cirrus-derived VFL soapbars provide plenty of tonal customization. The neck feels like a good old J-bass, and it's extremely comfortable to play. I had no trouble reaching around on the fretboard, playing anything from Rammstein's "Seeman" to Rush's "Spirit of Radio". The sharp looks and attention to detail make this a head turner, and using HipShot hardware is a real big plus for me since the factory is literally just up the street in Interlaken, NY. I'll be ordering one for myself as soon as I get some other junk taken care of. If my new one arrives in the same pristine condition as the one I played, I can imagine that this will be my main bass for practice and jam sessions.
This bass is the absolute best for its price. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, this bass will please you for years to come. It's perfect for almost any genre: funk, metal, punk, etc. You can get any sound you want out of it because of its built in pre-amp. One word of warning though, this bass is extremely powerful since it's active. If you have a smaller amp you may experience some distortion when you turn up the volume or bass. Another thing, if sounds like you're getting "farts" from your amp, but you aren't playing very loud, try changing the batteries. All in all though, this bass is amazing, if you're thinking about buying it you're over thinking it.
I am a musician embarking on a solo project. My main instrument is guitar and I play high-end ESP's, Gibsons, Fender Custom Shop, and Martin acoustic guitars. However, I also do lead vocals and play bass and drums. When the time came for me to actually buy a bass for recording purposes I took over a year to research and try out many basses. When it came down to it the Millennium AC BXP-4 had all the elements I needed and carried an incredible low price. On first glance the Tiger Eye finish which I bought has the look of a premium instrument. The hardware is top notch. The tuning machines are smooth and accurate and the bridge allows for multiple setups including string through body. The neck is fast and smooth with a nice satin finish. The electronics are the exact same as the much more expensive Peavey Cirrus models. These are dual ACTIVE VFL pickups with active three-band e.q. This bass has massive low-end and terrific articulation for rumbling to slap playing. It should also be noted that this was the bass of choice for John Campbell from Lamb of God before he developed his signature model. All things considered, this is the best deal on a high quality instrument in a simple and attractive package and professional features and response. Five stars.
This bass sounds so much better than the Ibanez I have been playing. The tonal quality and adjustment is fantastic. This is a great bass. The only downside is the color does not match the picture on the website. i was expecting purple, but htis is more of a maroon. It still sounds great.
Amazing bass for the price, great tone and sound quality. I've had this bass or about 3 years now and i've never been dissapointed with it. I'ts got real meaty pickups for the deep/low metal sound. I play alot of funk on it. Not to mention its a beautiful instrument. i recommend this bass to all bass players.
Wow. First I had a Squire. Then I had a Warwick..(Huge waste of money for me) now I have this....my amazing bass. Well its prefect. The tone knobs are a little fuzzy and tight but it's easy to ignore. The humbuckers make the vibration honey to my ears. I'm saving up for a Carl Thompson and then I'll be done with this one but its also very beautiful. I chose the red tiger design. Its a blast to show off at school. Its been dropped dozens of times and no scratch yet. Get it ok?
This bass sounds very nice for your money. I love the punch that it has on the low end as well as the tight plucks i can produce on the high end. You can be very molodic on this 4 stringer also. The 5 string is just as good. So if you are looking for a very good sound and your just starting out this is the bass to have. I love it. 5 Stars from me.
