That's a question we hear often at the Row, and we were thinking about buying a few hundred $200-$400 basses and doing blind tests. So, it was with great enthusiasm and determination we smashed the piggy bank which, unfortunately, didn't share our enthusiasm. Not to worry, though, Grindlepinch - lead gnome in our tech department, turned to Joss Fossgreen at Bassbuzz. Turns out he and his friends have already done all the hard work and, in doing so, have pared just about every sub-$400 bass on the market down to seven. THEN they put those to the test - and the winner is...!
