1  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Metro RV4 Dimensions? on: April 04, 2012, 10:01:29 PM
I've had both and prefer the full-sized body a bit more, but am getting less discerning.  Roger calls the RV body a 7/8ths size (compare to Fenders), I think.  I definitely notice a difference in how the upper bout hits my chest , but unless you've been long accustomed to Fenders, you'll never notice the difference (especially if you play mostly standing up.)

The UV70 pick-up placement in the bridge makes the tone a bit more aggressive...which I like.  I'd start with an RV4 if possible  to see if you notice the mass difference...unless a deal comes up for a UV70.  The RV4 should be a tad lighter.

Good Luck.  Can't go wrong either way.

My UV70 4 is M1205...a sunburst with black blocks and strangely has a NYC backplate and a VTC.  Was there mixing and matching going on then?  Love the bass.

I think the spoke rod adjuster came in 2002 because it was just a few months after I got my first Sadowsky.
4  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Looking for rack preamp/cab recommendations on: June 03, 2010, 10:52:31 AM

I already have a Alembic F2B paired with a Crest CA-9 into a Berg AE410, but I'm looking to try out another preamp to try out for something different. I"m also considering selling the Berg and replacing with two cabs (one 8 ohm 410 and 1x8 ohm 115.)  The Berg just seems a little too articulate and slightly sterile sounding to me.   Maybe I'm just getting antsy, but looking for something with more low-end booty shaking.) I play mostly old skool funk and rock.  I was considering an Ampeg SVP, but am open to other suggestions for pre's and cabs that work well together....Oh yeah, and overall cabinet weight is also a consideration.  Epifani? Aggie? Orange?

I just put some Sadowsky flats on it a couple weeks ago and I'm just getting used to them now.  I play old skool funk and rock in my band, so I switch between these two and it covers it all.  With the P/J, I tend to play it around half-way between the mid point and full-on P bass pickup.  It sounds great with the flats: punchy, fat, and smooth when I want it to be.   No, you can't have it...but get you're own.  You'll love it I'm sure. Wink

I could look at that P/J ---ALL day !!!
Tell me about it some. flats? how do you prefer the pup balance? what music do you use it to play? (as opposed to the J), can I have it?

Here are my two complementary beauties:

Shuttle 9.0 and Berg AE410...but lately I've been feeling like it lacks low end booty.  Nothing adding a 115 to the mix wouldn't, but the Berg AE410 is a 4 Ohm cab so I'm think about rearranging my whole rig.
