    Congrats on the Classic. My Classic V has been my dream bass. I currently have 2 Rays, but have had another one and 2 Bongos as well without experiencing the G string issue. But I don’t think I would...

    While there is no "wrong" way to set the preamp, the Bongo's preamp is pretty powerful...a little cut or boost goes a long way. Most basses I have used with an active preamp will get a little hissy...

    Lots of folks who start out on a 4 report having difficulty moving to a 5, though many have been able to do so. However, if you're just starting out on bass, you don't have to overcome that hurdle....

    Exactly what I've been wanting in a Sterling model. I'm primarily a bassist who play some guitar on the side, so I don't want to invest a lot for money in a guitar that might go unplayed for long...

    Hello my skinny-stringed EBMM brethren. The guitarist that I play with just picked up a used JP6 in Pearl Redburst (I may have had something to do with this;)). I told him that I could probably get a...

    Have you considered selling it in the FS thread here? I am sure that there are a lot of EBMM-lovers on the guitar side of the EBMM forum that would pay far more than you could possibly get in a...

    I have 6-8 pedals at any given time and I have never had to run the volume on my Bongo at anything less than 100%. Some of them are older Boss pedals and they handle the Bongo's output just fine.

    Chromes are flats...they are pretty bright for flats, but I still would not describe them as bright compared to ANY roundwound string I've played. They are actually pretty similar to the EB flats,...

    Love it....bright, loud, and unapologetic! I know black is the big seller, but I prefer the bright EBMM colors. Trans Orange will look awesome on stage. Enjoy it in good health!

    The only reason I would ever use the 'active' input on most bass heads is if the gain from my bass was so hot that it caused the preamp to clip with the gain set lower than 9:30-10:00. If your...

    I currently play through a Markbass LMII and have owned a GB in the past. First of all, I don't think you can make a "bad" choice between the two. Both are awesome, but different. While I understand...

    Don't bag the low mids!!!!!! The bass control will turn your tone into mud long before the low mids ever will.

    Seriously, the bass control is cool, but the Bongo has so much low end that I have a...

    I use Group IIs on a non-EBMM bass. They have fairly high tension, which I like, but not a lot of other people do. If you prefer higher tension, the Group IIs are a great way to go. Otherwise, the...

    Agreed on all counts. Seems there is a general consensus forming. Keep rounds on the Sterling, put the flats on the 'Ray.

    Might I wholeheartedly recommend EB Flats? Group II if you like higher...

    If you've tried flats and they aren't for you, that is fine. However, I will say, very strongly, and IMO of course, that cutting the highs on rounds doesn't sound anything like flats, and neither do...
