Mayones Viking 4 4-String Bass, Transparent Black
Music Store Live is proud to be an official Mayones dealer. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you're in for a real treat!
Dressed with looks to kill and armed with electronics that'll really thump, this Viking is ready to conquer everything in its path with a take-no-prisoners mentality! The Bartolini pickups are extremely warm, punchy, and tight. They pump out loads of mid-range goodness while keeping the bass response focused and still providing plenty of top end treble bite. Whether you're playing heavy rock with a pick, laying down a groove fingerstyle, or putting your thumb to the bass for some slap action, this bass has enough versatility that it can cover many genres and playing styles with ease. The action, right out of the box, is incredibly low and feels amazing. The flat fretboard and perfectly comfortable neck make it feel like there's nothing your left hand can't do on this beast.
This is great for the bassist who wants others to actually take note of the bass tone. With a bass like this, bass players are able to be a lot more than simply the guys that make the low and rumbly notes. You'll have all the articulation and definition you could ever need. It's really perfect for any bassist looking for a modern hi-fi tone. In passive mode, and favoring the neck pickup, you can dial in a more vintage P-bass kind of sound or get a thicker Jaco vibe out of the bridge pickup (turn the preamp on, solo the bridge pickup, and it's like Jaco on steroids).
There's not much this fierce battle axe can't do and it'll easily shine in professional or amateur settings. The big stage, studio, local cafe, or garage jam... This is the bass you want to take with you.
