Korean TWB43

I own a Korean 4 string bass as one of my back ups. I have been playing 30 years and usually only play USA made Carvin and Fender Jazzes. The Tune holds up to both of them. These days...who cares where it was made. It's about the sound and the feel.

The Tune factory has stopped production. As far as I understand SGC Nanyo Company continued the production with name Bass Collection. I have one 320 Active Electronics model, but these basses You can find only used and with wery good luck, as they are rare and extremely good to play, so people do not sell them easily. Best of luck and Google with SGC Nanyo, You might fin something.

Re: How do I get one!!!!

If you are in Australia, get into the yellow pages for South Australia and ring Peter at Holden Hill Music and ask him for a contact number for the distributer. If not, track down an email address for him and get the supplier's email address. Pete's got a few new Tunes in stock. I played a new 5 string Bass Maniac. The necks are a lot wider than the originals. I prefer my original with the thinner neck. I also played a few of the new models and they were... OK. Sounded alright and were playable. I'd just finished playing 4 new USA Fenders and they were all crap. The Jazz Bass was unplayable, the '68 reissue Precision was nothing like a '68 and whats with the little push button in the tone control???? Make it sound right in the first place and let the amplifier do the talking. No wonder Fender need a custom shop. The factory can't build it right the first time. I played the new Tunes after I'd played the latest offering from Fender's "seconds" shop, so maybe I was just grumpy.
My Friend, don't lose sight of your quest to own a 6 string Tune and don't give in to carpetbaggers that'll sell you the first POS bass with 6 strings hanging off it if you rush into a decision. They can all wait until you've made up your mind.
Good luck, and keep me in mind when you finally get your Bass. I WANT PICS.

The Tune does it again

Just completed another CD with my Tune 5 String Bass Maniac. The band played well. The drummer is hot. The vintage Telecaster sounds great. The 20 year old Tune sounds fantastic despite the strings going off. We'll sell plenty of the these new CD's and I'll make lots of money from it. I hate this CD. Why? The material is CRAP!!!! This CD was recorded to appease the people who follow the band and wanted us to record these songs. Big mistake!!! There is no attaction to expand our audience. A lesson for all young players. Never give them what they think they want. Always play them what they think they like. Play hard and insist the mix is solid. That does'nt mean loud, either.
Confused? Call me. You know how to find me.
I want to retire but I can't until you youngsters find some rhythm in your right hands. Left hand for you South paws. Don't misunderstand my intetions. I've heard 16 year old bass players that have the ability and can dig the hole, bury me and piss on the grave of people like me but the best they can hope for is to back some no rythym numbnuts guitarist playing Coldplay covers. I have'nt got all the answers but to say that, they'll listen to you as long as you can make the blood flow. Coldplay is for NAAFI's. No Ambition And **** all Interest.
If you've got a constructive opion, give me a call. If not, **** off and don't waste my time. This offer is not extended to losers.

Tune Bass

Ok guys it's offical I am now in the "Tune Bass" Family. This thing is truly the sh__! and I don't cuss. But I love this peace. The sound is great, the ease of use(fret board) the eq is the stuff I would give this Bass a 9 out of a 10 hands down. The only thing that I wish is that I could get in touch with the company so I could get some gear, and one of their gig bags. If anyone has any info on how to get this please shoot me an e-mail asap because i'm hooked thanks Marlon, and Rajitha for the info.

Tune Six string bass

Bought on today over a fender Jazz Squire bass. This thing rocks! The electronics are superb and mind blowing for the money. The wood is eye catching. The action better than my other 6 six string abanez it doesn't even come close to the Tune bass. If it was made in Korea those guys dedicated themselves to thier work because i'm am truly impressed to no end.It's a DARN BEAUTIFUL PIECE TO OWN....I took it through its rigor this afternoon and it wasn't founf wanting in respect. I would recommend to any bass player before spending big money on high end basses, check one of these babies out..

Peace out..

Re: Tune Six string bass

I'd been interested in the Tune bass products for a few years now (I first laid eyes on the classic Bass Maniac in the late 80's). After spending a few years playing a wide range of basses (Fender, Ibanez Soundgear, Warwick, Yamaha, and even Dean) I finally tried a couple of Tune basses last year. I couldn't put any of the ones I tried down and the tone was perfect for me. I originally was set to purchase a TWX-62 6-string, but I ended up going for the better, even classier TWB63 6-string with the ovangol wood. This has become my main fretted bass for everything I do. I like it so well that I not only would recommend it over current Warwick basses, but I immediately went and purchased a Tune WB-4FM fretless as well. It's the most brilliant fretless bass I've ever owned and I find my self using it for just about anything from acoustic gigs to heavy indie/"emo" rock and progressive rock. I've also ordered a TWX51 5-string as a "spare" or backup to the TWB63, and a TBJ52 (the one that most resembles the classic Tune "Bass Maniac" bass from the late 80's, but in a 5 string active model. . . it even has the "Bass Maniac" emblem on the front). I resolve to play Tune basses exclusively! You really can't beat them, especially considering the reasonable price you can find them for in the US. These basses can handle anything you dish out and any style you play! And they sound especially gorgeous through SWR amplification. I don’t know why Tune basses aren’t more prominently used. Dudes don’t know what they’re missing!

I look forward to my practice sessions with this bass. AAAA It's good to go..
