Stonefield basses, anyone???

Post by Tim1 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:07 am

Over the past several months I have been intrigued by the emergence of Stonefield basses in the bass media. They have been advertising regularly in Bass Player magazine and I notice they were featured recently at Bass Player live. Owner Tomm Stanley has some interesting ideas, including the tuning system and his passive eq setup. Endorsed by Freekbass (although I had never previously heard of him - shows my narrow vision, I suppose).
The most interesting thing is that these are made in Christchurch and sell for big bucks overseas. Has anyone here tried a Stonefield or know anything more about them? I am wondering whether NZ prices are more favorable for us since there are no export/import costs involved.

Not heard of them until now. I just looked them up on google http://stonefield-musical-instrument-co ... . They look quite interesting. Would be interested to hear from anybody who may have tried one out too

Tomm came around and bought an amp from me and he also showed me one of his latest builds. Most impressed 😊
