Holy cow kids

Comments about Dean Edge 8 8-String Electric Bass:

I love the extra octave strings. It adds a lil extra oomph to the sound. I have big hands and was able to use this bass relatively easily (well, playing the fender P-bass large neck helps). This is well-balanced, light, and sounds great. Really, this is a wonderful bass for some people. It's use is very specific, however, so if you don't know how to handle a 4 or 5 string yet, wait to get this.

Masterful...

By Pesley

Comments about Dean Edge 8 8-String Electric Bass:

Don't be put off just because it has some extra strings and is a little deeper in the neck. Some people think the order of ease of playing goes in the order of string addition. 8 is easier than a 6. The octave strings take getting used to, but the sound produced pays off. And as a Dean Edge owner, I would highly recommend them for the quality, playability, looks and price. And it really does open up a huge scope for what you play.

Interesting

By Haydn

from London, England

Comments about Dean Edge 8 8-String Electric Bass:

Well. I have not bought the 8-string yet (being careful) but what i can say is that having tried a handful of 8 strings, even a 15 string, i can say that they are great fun. They do however need constant tuning due to the guitars incresed neck tension but all in all this is a fun and interesting twist to most bass players to experience. Hell if the extra 4 stings put you off, then just take 'em off!But seriously if you try it and like it, then buy it.

great.... but complicated

By BassExpert

from Big apple

Comments about Dean Edge 8 8-String Electric Bass:

It is a great bass... and worth the money all the way, but Even I, a 45 year bass player, am having trouble getting used to the eight string design, Suggestion, do not get this unless you have long fingers....
