best bass I've played, and I tried out A LOT.
it's a pretty basic one pickup setup, which is what I wanted. the thing can do just about any ganre, although engineered for metal, it's got a really good hendrixy sound.
the neck is perfect for my guitar player hands and the corner near the pickup is perfect for a thumbrest
this is amazing for the price. get it.

I finally went for a V bass since not many are using them & thought I'd go for something different. The only complaint I really have is the pick-up.. It is too hot for any thing other that "metal".....You cannot achieve real deep tone with this even doing the adjustments on the amp..I will now be looking to replace the pick up. Oh.........& buy the case... you need it for this one!

love it!

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

ive been through 3 other basses (Rouge,Ibanez,Fender) and none of them compare to this beauty. ive been playing this bass for 2 years now in my band. it sounds great, it feels great. my only complaint is that i have to have a strap thats made of leather because if you use it with a typical strap it will slide off your shoulder other than that i love it!

Ok Bass

By Robert Warren

from Wautoma,Wi

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

Well this is a good bass for beginners but don't expect this to be your one and only though. The pickups are ok the neck is extremely comfortable and not too fat and over the guitar is a great buy for a low price.

Good for Beginners

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

When I first got this bass I really liked it. Over time you will probably want to upgrade. Also I would recomend you buy a case with it if you take it on the road often.

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

Hi there! Well, got the bass, and its the best bass I ever used at all and I used many( ibanezes, fenders, gibsons...) but this one is the best one. Finding a bag for it is kinda hard but you can always get bass coffin and your problem is solved. YOu wont regret buying it:)

An Excellent Metal Bass

By TaciturnBadger

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

After playing for several years, I finally ventured into the "extreme" body styles. Right out of the box, this thing makes you feel like a rock star, even before you plug it in. Once you do, you'll be amazed by the THUMP this thing can produce -- the lows just growl out of your amp, and the sustain on open notes and harmonics is ridiculous. The neck has a low profile but an exceptionally solid feel, great for digging into on wild string bends or heavy lines. The highs are smooth and EQ nicely, better than many other basses I've seen and certainly better than any in this price range. The only drawback is finding a case to fit it -- but the standard bass Coffin Case fits it nicely with a simple modification.

Dean Metalman Z

By Life Line

from Carbonear, N.L. Canada

Comments about Dean Z Metalman 4-String Bass:

It is what you pay for. I got the bass about 2 years ago give or take a few months, i bought it online without actually trying it out first, theres my first mistake. I got it and man oh man was it ever huge... blows all my other basses away! Second mistake... no case for it! so then im caseless! Next is that its a stage bass, great to look at but not so great for recording. Look Into what you want this bass for before you actually buy it ... its not sumthing you will want forever i dont think anyway!
