is the price good for the quality of the instrument?

where can i find this faq?


thanks.

First of all, the FAQ would be the stickied post at the top of the thread list called "ULTIMATE BASS FORUM FAQ". It's kind of ambiguous, I know.

And I don't have any personal experience with this brand; however, I am rather put off that at the top of the page their company name is spelled "Aria", yet at the bottom it's spelled "Arai".

Could just be me.

i hadn't known my thread had been moved, and i thought that the faq may have been under the faq links at the bottom of the page or on the website i had linked too,

thanks for pointing out where it is for me though


i think the typo may just be caused by poor web design, i was searching for ages to find directions to the store...

Yeah, it's probably poor design. Which, sadly, reflects poor quality 95% of the time.

Also, it could be that a company called Arai owns Aria. Benefit of the doubt and all that.

i did a check for any company's called arai, couldn't find any though so i'm guessing it's an awful typo.

would you recommend asking instore what a good package would be?

I have no idea why I didn't do this in the first place.

Starter packs are looked down upon 99% of the time. Look at the FAQ there, it'll give you a good idea of popular, well-respected starter basses. Pretty sure one or two starter packs are mentioned.

where can i obtain these in australia?


also would this combination be good for playing metalcore/death metal .etc ?
#14
I use it for everything. it is a little hard edge for country, but it gets a thick punch that can sound very pro.

and the internet should be a good place to look. take care though.

and I found mine at the GC. it works really well.

so it will be good for the type of music i wish to play?

what kind of price can i expect to pay for the amp and bass?
#16
it should. I have a very aggressive, punchy tone that would fit well with metal.
I know in the US it's about 150 for the amp and 200 for the bass. but I don't know my foreign currencies well enough to tell you what it'll cost you.

In the bass world, damn near anything works in metal. So long as the tone isn't flat and 'weak' (which is incredibly rare nowerdays), you can go from a trebly bite to a low end rumble and still work.

As far as I know ibanez has no sound problems whatsoever and are very versatile and reliable. I'm really surprised this hasn't been answered...

Edit:

He already knows that he should get that, he wants to know what the difference is between the quilt-maple top and the normal GSR200.
And I hate to hi-jack the thread but has anyone seen the ibanez SR800?
I saw a green one and it was dam sexy.

Is there usually a problem with the pickups and/or tuners on the Ibanez GSR200?

And can someone please tell the TS what the difference between an Ibanez GSR200 and an Ibanez GSR200 quilt maple top is?

There's really no difference (I have the GSR200FM, which is practically the same thing). Its just the look. They have the same features, same pickups, and the same wood.

the pickups and tuners were fine until I dropped it onto straight concrete without any padding and almost cried. now the split coil doesn't work.

there is but one difference. look, and a piece of maple so thin it won't affect your tone. if you care enough about, it do it. I didn't.
