I think that this is one of the best basses out there. For the price, you CANT beat it. I have had this bass for about 7 months. I have it running through an old Crate BXL160 with 2 15s. The lows on the b string are amazing. I would recommend this bass to anyone who likes to play.
I first heard of Dean when a guy in a music store handed me one to try out. I liked the way it played, and was absolutely floored when the guy told me it was about $200 - I'd figured around $1000.Since then, I've recommended Deans to all my students who want to trade up from a Fender Precision. I have four or five students playing the Edge 5, and several with the Edge 4. They're all delighted.
I have been playing bass for over 15 years. I recently picked up the fretless version of this bass, and I am completely impressed. I own several basses, from a classic Ovation Magnum II, to hotrod 80's-90's neck-thru rock/metal machines...and this bass will hold it's own against any of them. I only bought this bass because I got a great price for it (somewhere else), and I'm so glad I did. I would have been happy with the bass, even if I paid the full RETAIL price!!! The active Dean preamp is amazing (straight into the PA), the quality of the neck is 2nd to none, and the PU fader pot (instead of a switch) is genius. I can't comment of the FRETS, but I would imagine they would match the quality of the rest of the instrument.
I am not the best bassist by far, but I can get great, clear walks out of her, she'll bring the funk when your feeling randy and the rock steady rhythms are tone-tastic running clean right to a decent amp. As with any 5 string, a smaller amp will not accomodate the B string too well, but if you have good gear, you'll love the low tones.
Great bass,for the money.Excellent neck and action.String spacing a hair too close for me.Great sounding thru amps or P.A..Very quiet pickups (no hum).Very reliable.
i played one of these for a long time and its a great bass good feel, nice tone, and has a lot of features, i really like the 24 fret neck. i have a fender and i dont have 24 frets so i like the added range of the dean.
I played an expensive 5 string jazz bass that didnt thrill me at all and i was always an absolute J-bass fanatic. In contrast I also never thought much of deans (although id never played or heard one) because im not a fan of basswood. I looked at the low price tag expecting it to not come close to the poor quality fender, but man was i wrong. The neck was narrow but not crowded and the right thickness, it felt like a custom bass. The fret work was flawless. The body's elegant contour was much more comfortable against my body and right arm that any fender, peavey, or ESP I've played. I have also played basses that cost twice as much and they honestly dont feel that nice. I'm sold on it!
I have a left-handed version of this bass and it is great. It only my second bass, but I have tested dozens of other basses, and this thing is incredible for its value. It lacks the high tone though, I kinda wish it had a pair of EMG's. But the lows on this thing are thundrous. It's lightweight and its styling is very original. Check it out.
I have had this bass for about two months, and it is by far the best I have ever played!!!
I was very impressed by this bass. A super value and really comfortable. I can say by the other users' comments that they've played it too and are true. the strings are nice and close, the jack wiggles but thats not a big deal, the tone is awesome (preamp and no battery!) and it's easy on the joints. Nice bass for strumming, picking and slapping. try it through 2 15s.
