Jack and Danny Acoustic Bass

Post by Swoopy » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:50 am

Hi guys.
I'm looking at purchasing a Jack and Danny brothers acoustic bass.
Has anyone ever played one of these things?
I live in Queenstown so it's a long drive to go try one for myself.

I've never played them (are they the el-cheapo's?). If so, I'd rather throw down a few more pingers to get something with a decent name personally.

They're about $500 so not super El Cheapo.
Hoping that they are that price because it's not a huge name yet.

jack and danny have been around for a good few years, also known as J&D which was their previous brand.
consistency is not one of their focuses from what i've seen.

for i think 799, u can get a good Cort or greg bennet samick, there is a 599 samick that is pretty decent from memory.
Also for around the 799 mark you should be able to get a tanglewood acoustic bass as well.

For $649 you can get a very nice SX solid top acoustic bass with Shadow electrics and a nice padded gig bag. It's modelled on the Taylor bass and isa full jumbo style.
