Peavey Cyberbass  Midi controller/Electric bass.

Revolutionary midi/bass instrument.

Purchased new - one owner.

No latency (the action of the string touching the fret triggers the midi signal [see fret picture) - the midi pickup is housed under the bridge pickup cover.

The bridge pickup also acts as a “ramp” to facilitate fingerstyle articulation.
Plays effortlessly (I sent it to Peavey for optimum setup/playability – the action will go as low as you like) - a variety of onboard functions facilitate different playing styles (fingerstyle, slap and tap).

Onboard access to sound module patches with the flick of a switch (literally). Switchable 1 or 2 8ve - up or down (great for synth sound soloing (up) or fat slap (down)). Diagram of onboard functions in picture section of listing.

Steel frets (see pic) - no wear (flatwound strings have been used). Some wear on the fingerboard.

Truss rod works as it should (the neck is exceptionally stable – never needs adjustment).

Midi interface included (see pic).
The analog pickups (Peavey VCL) sound very nice (V, V, T config.).

The instrument was set up by the techs at Peavey (I have the work order/receipt). It plays effortlessly - the neck has very shallow "U" shape. The analog and midi signals can be blended. Separate outputs allow for amp/amp or amp/monitor configuration.

The designer, Steve Chick continues to make an instrument under the name of "Industrial Radio" (Google it for more info). His new generation midi instruments are nice but pricey. Same technology as the Cyberbass.

Kurzweil 1000PX 
Sound module - works well with the Cyberbass controller. A extensive library of piano, bass, synth and string sounds. The synth sounds are especially effective mixed with the analog bass sound. Pianos work really well mixed too.

Also Included
1.) - Spare parts for the Cyberbass controller including - an extra cable (needs attention), Lexan facing for the fingerboard, spare volume/tone pots and spare bridge saddles (see picture).
2.) - Operating manuals for both pieces.
3.) - Mbrace support system (see pictures of the brace alone and holding the Cyberbass - attaches to any tripod microphone stand. Comes with three straps (two spares - unused).
4.) - Stereo volume pedal (2 in 2 out). It will control both synth and analog bass signals or synth in stereo.
5.) - Peavey specially designed molded case (it fits the instrument like a glove - it also has a compartment for the midi interface). New condition.

The Cyberbass has always been kept in a climate controlled environment. Mainly used in my home studio.

Cosmetics are mint – no dings , buckle rash or anything of that sort. No pitting of the chrome components. Some wear on the lexan fingerboard.

I played the setup just prior to listing - it works flawlessly.
Locals are welcome to come and play it - message me.

Offers encouraged.

Any shipping charge overage will be refunded - Any extra I will cover.

If you are interested in the Cyberbass midi controller without the Kurzweil sound module - message me.
