Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

I've played some basses but this one is by far the best one out there. It's growl is so plesent to the ear and I've played Razorbacks and I still prefer The Dean 2A Z Metalman Bass with Active Electronics. I give this thing a 5 because its flawless. I cant think of anything wrong with it. I prefer it over Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, and DEFENANLY OVER ESP ANY DAY! This bass is just all Around fun And will improve if not make you a better bass player.

Made for METAL

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

This bass is very easy to hold, that is its main advantage over a V. Its easy to finger, and has insane power, the pick-ups do make a difference (they are adjustable on one of the knobs). If you turn up all the knobs to 10, you might have a problem, but it might just be my puny rig. This thing packs power if anything else, the pickups will kill you at 10. I use it with a Digi-tech Metal Master and they work togeather perfectly. It is gorgeous, just gorgeous! It has a beautiful black paint job, Red handsaw inlays that really stand out and terrifying Skull Ruby keys, something only dean could add. Uunfortunately it is not as sharp as it appears but from far away you wont be able to tell. If you want METAL this bass defines the word. Jump for the extra $$$ and get the 2a.

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

This review is a mixed bag. I love this bass. Looks great, fun to play and I love active pickups in a bass.
Mine is custom painted and looks killer onstage.
When everything is set "just so" it sounds incredible, BUT ...
1 - The neck is a bit on the thick side for my liking thought not what I would call uncomfortably so.
2 - Turning the pots all the way up or all the way down frequently caused buzzing and over-modulation issues, which of course you want to avoid in recording and live situations.
It is my hope that swapping out the pots for better quality ones will cure this problem
All that being said, when it is dialed in, this thing is bad to the bone, which to me makes it worthwhile to make improvements to and keep.

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

the new dean 2A basses with active electronics are very brutal basses indeed! And these basses create powerful tone and the great thing about the actives in it is i dont have to turn my amp up that loud to shake the windows in my house or at the shows. great deal!

my 10 year old little girlwanted this so I bought it for her.She is in a KISS tribute band called "KIDS".at first I wanted to send it back because it was heavy and standing on the floor it is as tall as she is,but she wanted to keep it so we did.No regrets....Great playing and sounding bass and she handles it like a pro.My guitar playing buddies love it too. Buy It !!
