The worlds best demo video.... not

Recommended Posts

So you want to sell a semi acoustic fretless bass. Probably can make some great sounds .... why not get the best fretless player you know to demo it...

Painful to hear. Not because of the pick itself (I'm sure you can do decent stuff with a pick on a fretless too), but because of the lack of... everything.

I guess it proves a point I make often which is that you don't have to "mwaaaahhh" every note on a Fretless. Or any of them.

I was sat here thinking 'I wonder what it sounds like plugged in'...then he unplugged it!

This is supposed to make me want one, is it?

They'd have done better if they'd got one of BassChat's better fretless players to demo it. 

Or, in fact one of BassChat's worst fretless players...

Aria should really get rid of this. It looks unprofessional and totally amateurish. Brands like Aria struggle with customer perception, that they're just cheap starter instruments etc. A video like this doesn't help their cause at all.

 

They should follow Cort's lead. Cort have been in the position of relatively anonymously manufacturing a huge volume of instruments for many, many brands and doing their own stuff in the background. When you see brands like Dingwall charging £1700 for Indonesian instruments and Strandberg charging £2800, we're seeing a consumer emerging who doesn't care so much about country of origin but good marketing like an artist roster with some real talent, good trade show and media efforts are needed too, because the Japanese and American companies have all that. Cort's marketing voice is much louder and stronger these days. They've got great product and solid marketing to back it up. This Aria effort on the other hand...

Agreed - and the thing is - it could be a really nice instrument, but who knows?!

Genius, he managed to sound like Lemmy on an acoustic fretless.

I think he was playing Master of the Universe - wrong...
