: : Okay, I have to buy a bass, and I would like to look at something other than Ibanez or Fender, but I don't know where to look..I'm looking at the EDC, EDB erodyne models and the BTB..any opinions or whatnot on them?
: : The BTB I am looking at is the BTB505sumthin or other..

: Hey Denny, about a month or so ago I went to Sam Ash to buy a guitar stand,
: and, because I have a lot of trouble controlling myself(financially)while
: in music stores, I wound up buying the stand, and a boss flanger.To check
: out the flanger, I took a bass off the wall, and didn't even realize it was
: an Ergodyne until I'd been playing it for about 10 minutes.It was model EDB605.
: It's a 5 string.All I can say is that it impressed me tons.Fisrt off, for a
: 5 string, the neck is extemely comfortable; not too narrow, not too wide.
: It has 3 band eq, a pan control, and has active electronics.It could produce
: a very wide range of sounds, although I would say it falls into the Jazz Bass
: hall of tones.It's definitely worth checking out. The BTB was a few basses
: down, and I regret not pulling that one off the wall.It sure looked nice.So
: did the price: $1399.00. I'm thinking of getting another bass soon too.This
: one's gonna be a five string, and the Ergodyne is the front runner so far.
: I also want to check out one of the Spector 2000 series.I also can hear the
: fairy voices of Musicman whispering "Michael,Stingray 5, Stingray 5", but I
: must resist for now; they're about $1,400.00 also.Not that I'm dropping any
: hints, but my birthday is this Sunday, Dec.10, and I'd gladly pay the shipping
: if one of you affluent but silent viewers of this page sent me a nice neck-thru
: body baubble.Another bass I've heard a lot about is the Fender Rosco Beck 5.I've
: read a few reviews, and they all said the low B string is very well balanced
: with the other strings.Again, we're talking about a grand and a half here.I thank God this is my one weakness in life.(excluding horizontal enrichment)

: Denny, good luck.Let us know what you buy.
: Mickster


ahhhh.......yeessss...the stingray5.....quite the beast that one ...sweet
