  1. I have to say this, in my 25 years of playing I've never heard a cab as Barefaced to be all over the stage, I just sound perfect wherever you are on stage, as for other that I played if you stand 1.5 meters away from cab the sound is gone... Barefaced just rules with dispersion of the sound.

    But never tried GR cabs, just their amps that are really nice.

  2. I'm selling my Moollon B524, it's a great bass as you probably know about Moollon.

    It's painted very thin coats of nitrocellulose in root beer finish, I think that finish in not available anymore.

     

    I have an extra pair of Moollon pickups, the new ones are on the bass, they are more mellow than the old ones.

    You can try and see for yourself what suits you. 

    It has a few dings on finish from use but it's in great shape. Wonderful low B and tracks exceptionally well. 

     

    Will be shipped in ProTerc gigbag.

     

    I'm the first owner.

    Just a quick update. I took the JV5 up to my friends up at DV247 where they have an excellent guitar tech. We put the JV5 through its paces against a Fender Jazz 5 Elite. Bearing in mind that the Fender is just under £2k and the Moollon was just over 2k I would have expected there to be some level pegging. The Fender sounded dead and cold and frankly dull. The Moollon was bright, expressive with nice dynamics and a good growl when you dig in. Build quality left the Fender dead in the water. The Moollon made the Fender feel cheap and nasty. The JV has a lovely integrated deep b, the Low B on the Fender just wasn't even there.

    I have played the JV5 against my own 66 and 62 Jazz basses. I have to admit the 62 slab has a bit more thump and the 66 a little more open harmonic content but the JV5 delivers 100% in every other respect. It has to be in the ranks of any super jazz I've ever played and its still less than half the cost of most. It is an absolute tone monster. I'll do a video review over Xmas. I can now see why people have raved about these instruments.
