Ibanez AFB200 Artcore Hollow Body Bass Guitar Review


Welcome back to another episode of loudest reviews. This is the Ibanez AFB 200 Artcore. Hollow body bass guitar.
I have to say that people's impressions of an instrument are always form by what they come to the table with like if it's a famous name they might think Well, It's going to be a pretty good instrument they cut a lot of slack. I remember years ago I played an inexpensive Ibanez bass that a student bass player was using and I said ....
You know, that's .... that's really not a very good bass You have to get something better.

Phil Jones Bass Cub Bass Combo Review

Hi, It's Martin again from Loudest reviews thanks everybody for tuning in again
this is a latest review of the Phil Jones Bass Cub.
The bass cub combo It's Phil's attempt to make the smallest lightest bass amplifier that you can really use on a gig in the market. Now I know that Phil It would say is a practice amp. If you're sensitive about your volumes and the band doesn't play extremely loud and the drummer is somewhat sensitive and you position it properly
you can actually use it on a small gig. A duo, a trio or maybe even a quartet
Absolutely for upright bass with the assumption of the upright bass the band
is not playing that loud anyway I had a long Let's say affair with Phil Jones
don't tell his wife!

Tycoon Percussion Cajon Vertex Series Review

Tycoon Vertex Series Cajon with Bubinga Body and Makah Burl Front Plate

Hey guys, welcome back to another episode of Loudest Reviews. Today we have this wonderful cajon by Tycoon Percussion. It's the Vertex Series
and It's made out of Bubinga wood. Bubinga wood is mainly found in Africa and it's one of the Rosewood family. You can see it because of the red color of the cajon
Tycoon percussion has been doing a lot of very nice and interesting products since 2006. They started they operations here in America in 2006.
One of the key features of the Bubinga wood is its bright and clear tone and you can definitely hear that when you're playing the instrument.
I really like the combination of the different sounds but I'd have to say I was extremely impress by how deep and rich the bass tone was
This cajon is made in Thailand. It has a pyramid style shape and you can see on the edges that they were all rounded, that actually increases the comfortably of the person playing on top of it.

Orange Terror Bass Head & Cabinet | Bass Head and Combo Review

Orange Amplifiers Terror Bass 500 Series BT500H 500W Bass Amp Head

Martin does a very completely first look of the Orange Terror 500W Bass Combo.
Here's the video transcript for future references:

Welcome back to another episode of Loudest reviews. I'm happy to say that we have Orange. Orange is a very interesting company.
They were founded by Cliff Cooper in 1968 in London England. I played my first Orange bass amplifier, actually a guitar amplifier
and an Orange guitar cabinet I think it might being a 2 12. In a gig in 1977 in a bar, and I remember walking with my Fender Jazz Bass.
The guy said, don't bring your amp, we have a bass amp. So I walk in and I see this Orange, the strangest looking thing I have ever seen.
1950s style knobs and graphics, really big, this kind of orangy picture frame around a white face...
I said: Did that came out of a science lab ? what the heck is that ? So he said, No, no... Just trust me, try it.
I said, well that's a very strange bass amp... Well it's really a guitar amp. You must be kidding, I'm not going to play through a guitar amp!
Kind of a big show for us.

Acoustic 260 bass amp combo review | Loudest Review bass winner!

Acoustic 260 100W 1x10 Bass Mini Stack, Black

Martin does an exhaustive video look of the new Acoustic 260 bass combo. It might come in a small package, but it carries some enormous bass sound.

Here's the video transcript for future references:
This is Martin from Loudest Reviews and Today we're going to talk about Acoustic.
In the 1990 several different individuals were working on bringing the Acoustic brand back. None of them were successful except for two: the brand we have here today and another very premium version that is coming. A scale down version of the famous 360, 361 but brought down to a $299 practice amp It was so cute, I couldn't resist. So eventually I brought the Acoustic 260 and to my surprise when I got it home It sounded very good.
