I've been playing around with the guitar for decades. Nothing serious, just a private jamming kind of thing. It's been many years since I've picked up a bass. When I purchased this bass, I would consider myself an intermediate player. This bass plays and feels like a guitar. It's small but not tiny looking, the frets are easy to play, sounds great, and it's lightweight compared to other basses I've looked at and played. I'm a woman with small hands and it is perfect for me. My SO, who is a professional player, was surprised by how nice this bass actually was for it's price and thinks I've made a great purchase.

The neck is way to heavy compared to the body...very unbalanced....The pickups "pop" with any type of aggressive playing and dont sound the greatest...the neck feels pretty good and it is a very nice looking bass but I wouldnt recommend it.

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    The EVO feels solid and smooth. Well balanced. The volume and blend pots work well. Looked for a long time before purchasing, and am VERY happy with purchasing this model. Body is almost an exact match for my Epiphone Les Paul special.

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    My wife and I play coffee house shows with a variaty of instruments. My only bass was a Peavey T40 and sounded great direct to the PA. She's a heavy beast (the T40 that is) and takes alot of room. I plug the little Dean into a Hartke Bass Attack D.I. and Boss chorus stomp and dial in some great sound. I'll keep the T40 for the studio and save my back. Geat job on the EVO XM.

    5 Years Later, Still Going Strong

    By Thomas Caja

    from Cleveland, OH

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    I've owned the Dean Evo XM bass for five years now, and it's still my primary instrument. I'm a big fan of the non-glossy finish and short scale (I've got short fingers), and the 24 frets seems to impress a lot of folks (though I rarely travel that far up the neck). I do occasionally have to get it set up to eliminate fret buzzing, but that's probably due to volatile Cleveland weather changes screwing with the neck. I eventually had an active preamp installed to give it some more oomph, an alteration I would recommend to others, but it's not necessary. With so few short scale basses available, this sucker offers very solid features for very little cash.

    Its ok

    By Luke Gochenour

    from IN

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    Nice bass but... I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER
    Its a good instrument over priced though. its kinda heavy I've played too shows with it and talk about pain in the neck
    Its a nice solid bass but on the tuning pegs its a sharp turn I've broke two E strings trying to replace them then the tone pot broke for no reason so I had to fix it and the input jack is always coming loose

    Great value - buy it

    By rJqVpn8NT

    from CA - Central Valley

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    Own the bass. Its really good value. Short scale, light, easy to play. The pickups are decent for the cost though somewhat plain. Only negative is the pots are tiny and cheap and the wood in the body is very light and lacks density. I retro'd two music man pups into it and they are not any better than stock other than a bit brighter.

    hardcore bass

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dean EVO XM Bass:

    This bass was spose to be the gray color like in the picture and the neck was spose to be light......but when i opend it the body was a satin black and the neck was darker and there may be rough spot here and ther on the side with the pick ups "just so you know" but the guitar it self plays very very well the only thing that i noticed is that on the 4th string "the lowest" there was a buzz on the 1st fret and the body had wore down, very small spots that were orange. but the guitar plays well i love it very much great deal,
