I've decided that I just need to sell it. It's just not my thing. No one seems to interested in buying these days though. Bummer.
2  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Help me love my M5-24 on: September 13, 2010, 12:56:27 PM
Hey guys,

I have a really ice M5-24. I love how it plays, feels looks and MOSTLY sounds. But I think it's a little too middy or aggressive for me. I have been trying to sell/trade for a "JJ" bass which I think would be more to my liking, but no luck. One of my friends says just keep it, it's a great bass, you'll learn to love it. Maybe so. I tend to turn basses very quickly.

I use a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0-12T combo. It has always been a great little amp, but some have speculated that it's mid forward voicing, along with the M5 may be too much. I don't really want to go amp shopping again, and I need something small. It's a monitor for many gigs as I have PA. It's a stand alone for smaller jazz gigs and of course for practice.

I bought this bass as an end-of-the-search, do-it-all thing for me. I know that's a tall order for any bass (jazz, rock, church, musicals, etc) but I don't want and can't afford a "stable" of basses. I want just one that I know and trust. Seems like the M5 should be able to do it.

So, fellow Sadowsky lovers, can you help me get back the "honeymoon" feeling again, and make it last? What suggestions do you have for me.
3  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: M5-24 players: What strings do you use? on: August 24, 2010, 09:23:27 PM
Looking for alternatives to my DR Hi Beams. They seem a little midrangy to me.
I've tried many string also, but what I've found to work best for me is the Sadowsky string that comes on the bass( the blues )

I haven't tried Sadowsky strings yet. May do that next. I think O am also going to try a different rig. My Shuttle combo is also a little mid punchy so it all kind of stacks up. Going to try a Shuttle 9.0 and a Bergantino HT112ER and see. There are a few people with this rig an dabs that say it's the bomb.

I currently use a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0-12T combo. It's a great amp, but I think between the pups/placement on the M5-24 and the mid strong cab, I may need something else.

We have GB, MESA, Nemesis, SWR Working Pro, Orange and Fender locally if memory serves from my last trip to the 2 stores in town.

I need to stay small/combo as I don't need a lot of cab/amp for jazz gigs and otheres are usually PA supported.

Any suggestions?

Jimmy Haslip is a great choice, but I think I'll go Nathan East.

You have a great memory. I did, and I am. I shouldn't have sold the first one. Live and learn. I have gigged it numerous times and it is the best bass I have owned - and you know there have been many!

Hi all

I just joined. Sadowsky M5-24. Gigged it last night for the first time. Totally kicked ass. I know I want more. Fortunately, I need/use 24 frets, so I have all I can for now. Maybe when those new 5 string, 24 fret JJ models come up used...

Until then, loving my M5-24.
