    Devin Townsend demos bass tones (Zon, Sadowsky, Sandberg)

    Great tones all around.

    I think the Sandberg was my favourite, followed by the Zon, and then the Sadowsky, especially when heard in a more full mix. Really, I'd be happy with any of them. The Sadowsky just seemed to get a bit flubby in the low end, and I love the punch of the Sandberg.

    I want a Sandberg so badly. I HATE relic finishes but theirs just look right.

    For me the Sadowsky was the best. It's got a really mix-friendly twang and snap, and a nice natural scoop. The other two sounded boxy when compared, but still great tones.

    this isn't helping my 5 string again GAS, but my Spector is balls to the walls tone like these.

    ''just buy a Spector'' should be a thing.
