Right, it's that time of year again - although some of you already know of this NBD, I finally got around to doing the thread.

So, I notice this large hardcase.


Wait, what does that say?



But...that would mean...






Sadowsky Metro MV4 - sounds as good as she looks.

Don't believe me? Check the video out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDSCjSqSNiA

Absolutely stunning bass - plays like butter, and when you engage the preamp, sounds like Marcus Miller! In both passive and active, it has that legendary Sadowsky growl, that I just can't get enough of.

So I say again - check out the video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDSCjSqSNiA

Oh, and a shout-out for Tostitos for guessing the bass correctly last weel

If that was more of a Red tort than a Brown tort, you'd have my personal fave color combo!!

Sadowskys are brilliant basses, but the fact you just played my favourite bass line ever has cemented you up there as one of my favourite persons.

Well done.
Saints walk the earth
They don't patrol the skies
They're the people right behind you
Riding tandem through the night
It's the comfort that's discovered
Through two sets of eyes
It's the hand that stills the other
That shakes like candlelight

those are beatiful basses.
I think Tal wilkenfeld uses one of them.
