For those who like it dark, heavy, and loud.

Schecter's Damien Series bass guitar not only shares a name with the evil child from "The Omen", it comes with a sinister satin black finish, black hardware, and black pearl bat inlays too. Its arched basswood body features a lower cutaway, rosewood fingerboard, and 24 jumbo frets. At a glance you can see that the Damien has "hard rock" written all over it. And rock Damien does, thanks to two EMG- HZ series humbuckers and 4 control knobs for volume, blend, and active 2-band EQ with selectable treble frequencies.

Pick up a Schecter Damien bass and prepare to whip the metal militia into a frenzy.

Awesome Bass

By Tonemonster460

from Victoria Texas

See all my reviews

This bass is one serious monster. The only reason why I didn't get it was because I got the Schecter C4 XXX, all the same qualities but it had binding all over it. This one nonetheless has serious bite. Looks beautiful and has a very fast neck. The emg's give you an awesome sound and the eq gives you quite a bit of options. Also the inlays are just beautiful. If you play metal or hard rock this bass is for you.

Amazing looks and amazing tone

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The second I played this bass in the local music shop, I fell in love with it. It's action is amazing. The EMG pickups give you amazing tone. The tone knobs can change your bass from a funkish, clangy sound, to an aggressive, hard sound. It's a bit heavy, but the weight insures me in the quality. It does have a dark look and really does seem to appeal more to the metal style than any other. Personally, it's the best bass you can get for the price.

Get Some

By The Red Lion

from Florida

So I bought a dumb BC Rich and took it back after 3 days and shelled out and extra hundred for this bitch. I had always heard good things about schecter so I figured it should be good. Turns it it's not good its down right Awesome! Except I got mine for a hundred dollars cheaper at guitar center. No worries musicians friend always has better deals on amps. But so far I've been playing on my Acoustic B200 200w Amp finding the right tone out of its 6 Band EQ is pretty fun. Plus this I just find this guitar very attractive. So all I can really say about this thing is .... Get Some!

Why Get this Bass?

By BlackWatch_00

from Hope BC Canada

Well Ill start off by saying I'm not dissing any company or model of basses...but this bass absolutely rules. Ive spent months searching and researching for the best basses on the market. I work on the road in Canada and constantly go to music stores looking for the best in quality, looks, cost and playability.Price was never a factor for I can afford any bass I want. By saying this ive tried different basses with different amps even retrying them in different stores and the one that always sticks out is the Daimen Diamond series. A specially designed (almost distorted)powerful low E string is what I think is what does it. The bass is affordable and to look the other way with this bass is like turning down the girl of your dreams...(it dont cost much and in my opinion if you pick something else up your just paying for a "name" or "status" and not anything else) Its all about the feel, the looks and most importantly the sound!

Oh yes

By P.J.

from MN

I used to play a mockingbird platinum and used an Ibanez phat hed distortion pedal to get the sound I wanted, after purchasing this bass I might as well get rid of my pedal because I no longer need it. This bass is awesome for everything I do, Metal, Rap, and Funk. I tried it at total random at guitar center and went, holy crap I need this bass and bought it a week later from Capitol Guitars. There is a new model of it on the Schecter website but it has a pick guard and one metal man type pick up, it looks stupid. Get this one.

What a steal

By dude-rM-8d

from Clio, MI

I recently upgraded from an Epiphone Thunderbird IV to this bass. I have to say that I LOVE this bass. The action is feels great and the neck is very fast compared to my last bass. It sits great when you're standing up, and the tone is killer. I would suggest this bass to any intermediate player with a budget, this thing is worth more than they're asking for.

Why look any further???

By Paulie

from USA

See all my reviews

Let's get this straight. I don't write reviews to sell a product. I bought this bass for a reason. IT KICKS ASS!!! My guitarist plays thru double stack Marshalls and I don't need a wimppy bass to lay down the bottom. I send it straight thru a Sansamp preamp (no pedals or effects),Behringer 4000 watt power amp, and two Ampeg 810 Classic cabs. DAMN!! Any more questions? I'll keep on with Schecter Basses.


Buy Once, Play for a Lifetime

  • Extremely Versatile -- not just for heavy music
  • Has character -- visually and sonically
  • Inexpensive


    Best Uses

    • Any Style of music

    I stumbled across this bass on my way to my first bass lesson after taking a 20 or so year haitus from regular playing. I was too embarrassed to walk into a lesson with the "First Act" bass I'd bought for 40 bones a year or two prior. I wanted to get something that said "yes, I'm a beginner, but a beginner who's on his way to beginner-intermediate. I had no idea what or who Schecter was -- this bass just had character and I liked the bats. I was in a hurry, and didn't even play it before buying it...I just bought it and rushed along to my lesson.

    Four years later, I have played several other basses since, even newer, more expensive Schecters, Fenders and others. While every bass has it's character and vibe -- this one is my favorite.

    It's marketed for heavy, aggressive music, which is great, because I do that lots. But one quick turn of the treble back to zero, dropping the mid-eq maybe halfway, and you've got the most syrupy mellow warm tone I've ever heard...even if you've got aggressive strings.

    I don't know if it's the wood choice, the pickups or what, but the tone in general has much more depth of resonance than other basses I've tried. I can, in one second, be playing an aggressive song like Tool's Sober, or Alice N Chains' Would, waiting for the roof to crush me and the floods to come, then immediately switch over to Son of A Preacher Man and lull myself into a '60s SoulFest with one a big nostalgic grin for the good ole' days, which were over before I was born, apparently, cuz I was born in 1980.

    I've tried to "upgrade" to a better bass...but I just can't find one. I bought this used at a Pawn Shop for less than's got a slightly warped neck, too. But I've bought basses for around a grand (schecter, fender) only to return them because when I play this, then play those, those just can't do what this can do.

    I'm now searching for a White version, but I don't think they exist. Hmmpff...guess I'll just settle for the best bass ever in black

    Great Bass!

    By Will-aurEH

    from Nowhere, TN

    See all my reviews

    Had mine for bout 2 months now. This was my first upgrade type of bass. I gotta say, this baby blew me away. The neck is thinner than what I was accustomed to, but not putting it down for a week cleared that right up. Looks wise, I love this thing. The Satin Black is a great finish, and the bat inlays add some attitude. As far as build, its a very well built bass. Action on the fretboard is smooth and effortless, you'll hit where you want. The EMG's pack some punch and have pretty good range. This is my first with active pickups, and they don't disappoint. I'm pretty set in what I play and the Damien, as advertised, is great for heavier music. The Damien is a great all around bass and not only because of its price tag. This is my first Schecter, and damn sure it won't be my last.
