British built (JMI) Vox Bassmaster basses were fairly widely available, and along with the Vox Clubman bass made up the majority of UK Vox bass sales. Many UK bass players started out on these instruments; the Bassmaster was cheap, short scale, with a very thin neck, ideal for guitarists swapping to the bass, or just players with smaller hands. The price was also kept low by only employing the simplest of electronics: master volume  and master tone . The two pickups [3-4] are identical, and it is not possible to select either pickup individually.
But a good sounding bass none-the-less, very bright sounding - I prefer it with the tone backed off a bit. Listen to the sound clips below.
The Vox Bassmaster has no pickup selector which limits tonal options - but the sounds that are there are great; it really snarls when you dig in with a pick.
Recorded with a Shure SM57 microphone, into an M-audio mobile pre USB interface.
Amp settings volume 5/10, treble 5/10, bass 5/10.
