SLB200

Your Price: $4,899.99 CDN

Limited stock available in select stores only

The SLB-200 incorporates a semi-hollow body design and new pickup system that combine to deliver a serious sound that demands to be heard. Played pizzicato or with a bow it feels and sounds good, very close to the real thing.

Increased Portability
A performance-oriented bass, the SLB-200 is designed with a compact body and detachable frame that makes transport to and from the gig a breeze.

Improved Tone Quality
Built-in electronics offer plug-and-play simplicity while its full-bodied tone lets it fit naturally into any jazz setting or add a unique texture to a pop gig. Volume, Treble, and Bass controls on the SLB-200 provide straightforward control over the instruments tone while the instruments active electronics offer plug-and-play operation without the need of external pre-amplification.

Unique Pickup and Bridge Positioning
The SLB-200 utilizes a sophisticated Piezo pickup system positioned directly underneath the bridge to deliver optimum tone quality. A height adjustable bridge found on both the SLB-200 and SLB-100 lets you adjust the height to meet personal playing preferences.

I bought my Silent Bass in 2007. Impressive is the only word that describes this bass! The playability on this Eb neck is excellent, and feels so much like the "real thing". Really, close your eyes and listen to the sound of pizz or arco and you'll swear you hear a classical upright. I play it mostly through a DA200S Simmons electric drum amp, but also use an Ampeg PF-800 though Traynor TC 412 cab. Insane sound! I bought the optional knee pad that has made bowing while sitting much easier. The shoulder extension is on order: make it more comfortable to play upright. I highly recommend the SLB-200 for jazz and classical music. Really, you'll be blown away on the sound and the feel of the bass!

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
