BOTM: Pedulla Pentabuzz Fretless 5.







(Note, view the photos fullscreen for a good view at that FLAME)

Hey guys. blast from the past with a flying visit here.

I aquired this in a straight trade for a Status S1 that i wasent getting on with, and a Gary Willis fretless that was lovely, but wanted to move on up.

Specs:

AAAAA sunburst flame maple with lined ebony fingerboard, twin Bartolini soapbars and bartolini custom pre-amp and mid boost switch, in immaculate condition with a fitted Pedulla hard case.

Its a little bit gorgeous, The actions pretty damn low. The barts i am a tad dissapointed with. As many people know they kill mids completely, very dark sounding, would rather replace them with EMGs or Nordstrands. They do have their place though and i can get some usable tones out of them. Would prefer a little more grind.

However, it is a marvellous bass to play, Currently using it in a Doom death metal band. Looks awesome on stage. Has some sweet harmonics when played.

The construction is top notch (Though for a 3000 it must be!) The control cavity cover is made from the same peice of Maple the bass is made from (I wish more manufacturers did this).

Hopefully this bass will be staying with me for a long time I need to get some of the sound issues sorted out but should be fine!

If anyone would like to know anything else about the bass, please feel free to ask.

Nice, my old bass teacher had a Pedulla, it sounded amazing, fretless would be even better.

I just don't like the horns, though, they look like they suffer from some kind of birth defect

Very nice. Shame the pup's aren't your think, but considering the other basses you have had and Bart's reputation of being very smooth, it doesn't surprise me. As you said, getting a nice pair of Nordstrands in there should bring it to life.

Very impressive! I'd love to play/own one of those. Would love to hear some obligatory sound clips with it, though.

by the way, asomodai, you may choose a song for the songs to learn thread to replace a song already in there.

Long time, no see, Asomodai.

I've never liked the body style of those Pedulla's (prefer the Raptures or Thunderbolts), but I'm sure it sounds and plays amazingly. How does it compare to those old BCRs of yours?

I believe I seen your Status on basschat (do you post there?), was it a bright red flamed top with a graphite neck and gold hardware? What was up with it? It looked fantastic!

Ugly as hell. I've played a Rapture with the above mentioned Bartolinis. It was decent, but not a $2000+ worth.

On thread, that is a beautiful bass, but I am somewhat surprised at your opinion of the pups, I'd like to hear a clip to understand exactly exactly what you mean.
