I do agree with you that it is probably not the right sound for Jazz walking bass lines.... The other Status models are better suited for that, but your bass sounds fantastic in that band!


You are too kind, thank you for the nice words.

Re: Wanted: Status Streamline 5
For Cecoulter and anyone else who is after a better idea of what a Streamline 5 sounds like. I did my first gig on it yesterday and recorded it on my Zoom Q2n. It's not studio quality, but it gives a good representation of what the stage sound was like.

I'm going to say it's probably not a great bass for walking bass lines. But my initial thoughts are this is an excellent bass in so many ways. Have a listen:

Congratulations:
Please don't forget to post sound samples when you get it. I have been intrigued about the Streamline bass for a LONG time and would love to get on! I play mostly jazz and to most gigs I take an electric upright bass AND a bass guitar. The streamline would make my equipment carrying so much easier... not too mention on the occasional flight, I could get a custom flight case and fit both the Electric upright and Streamline easily.... BUT I can not find any legitimate videos /sound samples of the Streamline. 99% percent of videos of Status basses are people slapping "Mark king style".... I need to know if a Streamline would have a warm/ growling sound that would fit well for a walking bass line....No jazz players (that I know off) play Status basses.... It is hard to guess since it is all graphite.... Hence my hesitation to get a used (or new ) version.
Many thanks in advance and congratulation on the new Status order!

No problem, I'm not a jazz master by any stretch, but I can knock out a walking bass line that will give you an idea. You'll have to be patient though, I won't receive the bass for ages yet.

FWIW, I have another option for you to consider. I have a tiny Ashbury electric bass that has rubber/gut strings that sounds very close to a full size double bass. When I say tiny, I mean tiny. It's uke sized. And it wasn't expensive. I'll post a clip of that as well if you like.

Re: Wanted: Status Streamline 5
Have you considered something along the lines of a Steinberger shape? Hohner B25's are very nice and light (and very affordable too). They do require some modifications to compensate for the weird ergonomics: the Streamline is somewhat of a singlecut design, with normal strap button positions, but the Hohner has the front strap button behind the 21st fret! So on a strap, the first few frets are awkwardly far away. I have a 4-string B2A and it's a lovely bass to play and sounds great in active mode (but very bland and dry in passive).
