sakatrapo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A superb acoustic bass!"

Eko BA4/N
I use this bass since 1978. At first I did not like it because it was set incorrectly and had old strings. I did not really want to change, then change it once did and once set, I fell in love! she snores, it sounds and has a real personality. Mine never had picnic, but I pass I have a bass to play standing. I tried the latest low and blah blah its really a little off! I love the violin, shapely, strong, only downside the sound is not very powerful but the piezo that I added myself sometimes used to play a little harder, and it works very well with this instrument. Really this fretless bass and more!

I bought this acoustic bass to be able to take it anywhere and not necessarily the instrument work out the big guns. What guided my choice are reviews found on the net, the vintage and quirky (what look!), And also because it has been used on videos Cure (The Caterpillar, ...) that which for me gives a little historical side not unpleasant. It was made in 1979 in Italy, according to the serial number.

I tried a few modern electro-acoustic, but ... Eko out of the lot, by far. The violin, first, is really nice, nothing to do with the current Asian productions. Mahogany, rosewood, ... Small problem, however: one of the marks on the edge of the button is not located in the right box! My bass had to be made on a Monday or Friday ... Those who understand an Italian bike.

More seriously, it is a fretless, but the locations are marked frets. The handle is big enough, but still playable, the box is huge and has a retractable picnic because you can play this bass vertically in fact rather sitting, like a cello.

In this position, the sound is more powerful (remember that initially, it is a pure acoustic) because the body is not in contact, the vibrations of the body are not stifled. This is one of the best acoustic bass sounds I heard, even compared to gear worth 4 or 5 times its price. Very close to the bass in the midrange, warm, round, woody. Suddenly, the flat wound strings seem more consistent. My bass was equipped with a piezo sensor when purchasing, which I know the brand, but the rendering is excellent amplified.

Low character, original to look deliciously 60's, I think we'll go a long way together, and my ritale me ...

I bought this BA4 (acoustic bass single market, made in ITALY) in Nice in MUZICOCAZ in 1981, mainly to play during my travels. Fretless neck wide enough, I got off the right forearm and left hand, as said JPlebassiste Excellent instrument to work! ! ! At the time I was playing an electric LEDUC DB3 handle extremely thin so it's true that after the appointment was at rapididté! !
I always play my BA4, she suffered a bit of travel, the varnish has taken a few blows but it is still there, faithful, ready to play.
If you have played with fingers against the button and there is no blues can resist him ... the pick towards the bridge t'enquille entire directory post-punk like "Violent Femmes" "Louis Armstrong" ... etc.
I installed a pellet at the time of micro bass, this summer I hooked up a friend MARK BASS bass, and remained on the ass of his "incredible I just put all right! "
A patron of musical instruments store is laughed at her and said its range in front-fender ibanez, cort: "He who has made something's not over ..." the ignoramus! !
My old accomplice who followed me everywhere, I too am proud to honor you here in the middle of all this electro-acoustic riddled with electronics. Apart from TAKOMA TUNDE CHIEF I have not heard of other acoustic bass that can rival its serious and its grain with yours.
Thank you my old;)

Eko BA4/N
Delighted with the opportunity to pay tribute to my old EKO acoustic bass ... Purchased 800 F (a sum!) In early 1978 ... At the time I began, I could not afford to pay me an amp so I opted for one that was the only acoustic bass market to play in my room or acoustic blues with friends. I've never regretted it! Powerful sound, full, real bass! In addition, not shrunk, just white markings at the location of the bars, excellent for work on vibrato and tone. Lowlight: a real pickaxe handle, and rope to the handle 1 CM! At first, panic, and then I realized it was very good for working finger strength and a half hour of exercises on it, then you take your Fender and you're a virtuoso! In fact I use it a lot with me: nothing to plug. And then his little weird side, early sixties, has a real low budget charm. EKO BA4, I love you my old!
