Does anyone here own a MM Bongo? I'm some what in the market for a new bass and this thing has caught my eye. I've checked out some reviews on youtube and what not, the thing sounds amazing. I was just wondering if anyone here has had any personal experience with it and can possibly tell me abit about it.

Thanks.....

Looks a bit like a toilet seat thought XD

I tried one a few months ago, personally I prefer the Stingray and the Sterling but I found it to be a beast of a bass, only problem for me is the looks.

Haha, fair enough. I actually enjoy the look of the bass very much. All Ernie Ball basses are damn fine basses though.

They are the most versitile bass out there.You can basically make them sound however you want.
...it was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat

No they aren't, I've heard more versatile. however, you might be able to argue that it has more good tones than any other, because that is subjective. and possible, with a few mods.

I tried one, and was highly impressed. It had a very nice feel to it, with a neck that was thick enough to feel nice and heafty, but thin enough for you people who don't like Warwick necks.

Sounded awesome through a MAG on low volume, so I suspect it has great potential tonally.

Bongos are wonderful sonic giants in the bass world; they have the classic EBMM sound and then some. And they are 24 frets.

I could get over the body looks, but I just can't get comfortable playing that body shape.

Well, I dont know why you'd want a versitile bass if it didnt have alot of good tones.

I just tried one out at my local guitar shop. Man that thing is dope, plays awesome, phenomonal tones, comfortable as **** too. With a $1400 price tag, time to start saving up. Oh yeah, gotta love the 24 frets aswell, always a bonus.

Even though I personally have a love/hate relationship with the looks of these Bass' (can't make my mind up ), I have a real urge to try out (I mean really try out) one of the 6-ers when they are readily available .

Just wondering, whats the difference between the MM Sterling and Stingray?
#22
The biggest difference I know of is the size. The Sterling is much smaller, other than that I'm not sure what else is different.

The Stingray has a a Pbass like neck.
The Sterling has a Jbass like neck.
The Sterling is smaller and lighter.
The Sterling has 22 frets.
The Stingray has 21 frets.
The Sterling has the pickups in parallel and has a switch.
The Stingray has the pickups in series.

I think that's it.

I think UtBDan has a Bongo, so you could politely PM him and ask about it.


I do, I love the thing. I did a BOTM on it if you want to look in the archives, if you're real committed you can IM me or PM me.
