Thread: Which EBMM bass(es) do you want for 2012?

    Which EBMM bass(es) do you want for 2012?

    I'm literally at the point now where I feel incredibly lucky to have such a good set of basses. It's kinda nice to not have constant yearnings for new gear. I think personally once my Bongo arrives I'll have (pardon the pun) all basses covered!

    Now...I know how things can change quite quickly. In 2012 I begin my legal career, and hopefully financially I will be in a stronger position.

    This will no doubt mean that in say 10-12 months time, I will think about another EBMM.

    I have enough Rays, I have a lovely Big Al and Sterling, and a Bongo is coming. The only bass I don't have so far is a Reflex/Gamechanger.

    Possibility for 2012? I hope so. We shall see.

    What would you like to add to your collection?

    I'm hoping my Game Changer will arrive sometime soon. After that I think I'll be done with new basses for a while.

    I'll take a Darige Delight Bongo 5 H, please.
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    I'm gassing for a black reflex 5 hh with a maple board, bad...
    Thinking of trading my ray for one, in fact, if I could find one.

    I might do a gold or white Reflex HH if the right deal turns up. I already have a 25th HH, so it would be redundant. But I dig the way they look in the classic colors. Love the Reflex / 25th HH instrument. Thanks EBMM for a great bass!

    Hey, ...You're reading my mind ...the same, only in Hp configuration!

    However, I really want a Bongo 5 Hp in kinda LE or Dargie, ...BFR edition, ...something like that!
    It would be the best with ebony fret board if possible, ...I was even dreaming one with whole graphite neck!!!

    Keko, I hear you, though personally I have a hard time understanding the lure of the piezo. Graphite neck, nah, from what I've played (status SR4) I prefer the wood necks. But BFR, yeah most definitely!

    Mmm, ...I understand piezo definitely and think it's time to get one neodymium H at sweetspot with piezo (4 band EQ including in that combo)!
    I need one like that for some folk set list gigs which I play very often, when need kinda acoustic/harmonic/tuba bass tone!!!

    Reflex will be used for urban pop/rock/dance set list gigs!

    I'd like a Big Al 5SSS. Just played one yesterday for about 20 minutes and had a chance to compare it to a Bongo 4H - finally!! The Big Al SSS rocks!! I think I could probably spend a year just exploring all the tonal possibilities of passive mode. And then there's active mode!!

    The Big Al SSS is very different than the Bongo H and has an interesting midrange character and it's surprisingly growly. There is a similarity in the extended frequency range offered by the neodymium pickups but the similarity ends there. The Bongo single H is still crazy loud and powerful though in comparison.
