The violin is very good for a bass this price point. The handle is nice, comfortable with a joint (pitch 34 "). The strings have a distance smaller than a 5-string electric, not really slap-oriented, not too serious to me for an electro-acoustic.
The template can impress at first sight, but is quickly forgotten when we play. Access to the treble is a bit difficult to the last box, but outside of that, the instrument is enjoyable to play.
It is the strong point of this bass in my opinion. The pre-amp does its job beautifully, and quickly obtained a sound very persuasive. The cursor shape does wonders to give a lot of presence and power, complete with three-band equalizer, we can find the desired sound.
Properly adjusted, it has a nice attack and a very nice sound grain.
In pure sound, the volume is very limited we suspect, it remains sufficient for practice sessions at home but will be insufficient as a duo with a guitarist if he seriously attack the strings.
This is my first bass electro-acoustic, I've had a little over two years. I tried a Takamine Cort and in this price range, but I chose without hesitation to this model. The finish of the bass is neat and exudes seriousness. As for sounds, it has at hand a great variety of sounds through electronics.
So it's a nice bass to play and rest in my opinion the best in this installment midrange, I do it again this choice without hesitation.
