Peavey Minimega any1 tried 1?

Hey folks, been keen on one of these for a while and have been looking at getting 1 from the states 2nd hand. I don't need a new amp as have found my happy place with a GK 700rbII but you know, I do like new stuff. So, has anyone tried either this or even the MiniMax? thoughts? cheers

Re: Low tension strings

Yeah cheers, so when i had the trouble with the pole pieces and audible clipping that was with a low action Darkstar Warmoth P-the Ray buzzes too much when it's low which leads me to the next point that I want to get this bass to Sydney(maybe next tour) to get it plek'd.

I play a stingray with fairly high action and enjoy stainless steel strings for brightness, and usually use DR lo...
