Get dealGet deal

I gave in and bought one. GAK are now including a free pack of Elixir strings to boot.

I play mostly rock and blues and this thing really surprised me. It's just perfect for both.

The neck is a joy to use. I usually like thick necks and this is kinda in between. Fills your hand and it tends to make me play more accurately when playing lead - no doubt because it is asymmetric.

The pickups are a great match for the body and tone woods. Thick smoldering tones with nice articulation when playing lightly and a fat punch when you dig in. I also noticed how the whole guitar resonates when playing. You can really feel the head stock vibrating when tuning which is a good sign.

The tuners are really accurate and feel stable.

A very expressive instrument. I know a good guitar when I play one for the simple reason that I can't put it down once I start playing.

I have been playing for 24 years and I own 14 electrics ranging from Custom shop Gibson Les Paul's to vintage strats and in my opinion this is a GREAT player. Sometimes the tone from a Les Paul is just too much and the tone from a Strat is just too little and too familiar.. and that's when something like this just fits the bill.

If I had to sum up the tone in one word it would be 'smoldering'

I would put just one normal tuning peg on it .

@dioxyde0 These speakers are low end studio/monitoring speakers which produce a fairly neutral sound (no boosted bass/treble). Basically these are meant for music production or as i currently am DJing. These would probably be great for gaming, i have another set of monitors i personally use for gaming as well as listening to music, music production, video editing and watching movies. Those speakers perform better than all cheap PC speakers across the board.

Also they have a sub out socket should you feel you need to add a sub at a later date.

Hope that helps!

guys would these be okay to use for gaming without a sub? seems like good quality for price

Quick look on bax £238 delivered


Based in Holland (where they have a decent enough rep) all items are shipped from Holland. Personally I'd rather buy a guitar locally so I can check it over but hey ho, they are trying to compete with Thomann

Do check out their reviews on their Facebook page, they do reasonably well on places like TrustedPilot but a good number of horror stories and 1 star reviews out there. Their reputation in Holland is superior to their UK enterprise.

The Bax brother also appear to treat their staff poorly.

They recommend the Ortofon scatch, this is an all in one direct plug in connection to the arm which is quite convenient if you are cueing or scratching! as the stylus is easily visible. But it's cheaper on Amazon!Ortofon were/are? a Danish company well over a century old and who have manufactured some of the best hi-fi cartridges record cutters and associated equipment in the world.Best of luck with your purchase!


Thank you.
I hope it works well and it comes with a cartridge so I don't need to buy something like the Ortofon OM 10 cartridge (£38). But even if I have to.. it still would be £40 than buying it at amazon and I would have a better cartridge. :-)

Now I'm just crossing my fingers expecting it arrives in good condition and working perfectly. I will report tomorrow if everything went fine

I have one and unless you are into that sort of thing you will struggle to use. good to add to an instrument for extra effect. the kaossalitor is better.

ordered mine!.. good fun to be had on the cheap :-)

For the money its a no brainer. It can be used with a guitar but that does require a bit of messing around with cables, cos its a different fitting than a standard amp lead. its the smaller headphone lead. Its basically an effects box that you swipe to alter the parameters, although the effects are largely geared to dj and producing. It does have some loop settings but they are very limited and if looping was your thing I wouldn't get this. when they came out they were nearer £150. This is reduced because a new model came out with sampling capabilities.

Didn't these used to be quite expensive? The Muse frontman has one installed in his guitar if I recall correctly...

I'd have been all over this like a rash, but unable to order on-line & Brighton being the other end of the country for me makes this a no deal.

It seems the reason you got this at reduced price was because in your words it was "sitting at the shop for six months" So store specific reduced to clear?

I'm saving up to buy replacements for my DT990 Pros which broke after 20 … I'm saving up to buy replacements for my DT990 Pros which broke after 20 years service.Hoping the quality is just the same!Can you characterize the sonic differences between 770 and 990... aside from obviously the closed nature?I'll be using mostly with a mixing desk.. I presume 250 ohm version is correct, and it would thus be of limited use with phone, ipod, nano etc...



I'm far from a professional in this sense - I have the 80ohm DT770's and the 250ohm DT990's. I find the 990's to have the a more open and more 'balanced' (less bass-centric) sound, the padding is also a lot softer than the 770's as they're not sealing (though they look very similar). My cans are circa 2012/2013 models, they're in storage right now with much of my stuff so I can't give a test unfortunately. Being open back they have a much more "relaxed" feel in terms of listening to music, I've only used them really with a dedicated amp (the dreadful Fiio E17 with the docking amp, the E17 keeps "crashing" as I'm feeding it via USB source and have to undock it to reset it, every 2-3 times I use it).

I think it suits a wider array of music, I was using them in a very quiet (acoustically sealed) room but you can hear about 80% of everything in the room with them on - I couldn't test leakage as noone else was around when I was using them but I believe it's quite a bit with the basic tests I did.

The 770's are closed but not completely leak free but they're very good - I'd wager that you could probably use them in the office without upsetting everyone else much at all. Bass is superb - they're called "Darth Beyers" on Headwise, there are even modified versions with even *more* bass. I find the bass to be exceptional but it's not forced on you - you get it if you want it and drive it up of course, much more so than anything else I've used to date. I really like their sound signature, they're very comfortable too though I haven't yet mastered the art of cleaning the pads (you're supposed to be able to get them off but I can't figure out how to detach them). They're hotter than the 990's but for closed cans they're about the most comfortable I've ever used; they have managed to use felt on the vinyl pads which makes them much more comfortable and less sweat prone but without losing the seal.

Between the two build quality is basically the same, I actually paid a tiny bit more for my 770's than my 990's (I sourced the 770's from Singapore and the 990's I bought from a local vendor in Australia at the time). The price in this deal above is about 2/3 what I paid for the 770's - they came with a little valve based headphone amp which is ok but has some quality issues but did its job fairly well, you really can use the 80ohm 770's without an amp but they're much better with it (they really reward the extra clout).
