Good gear is a spcial is trs small, the strings are silicon (20 games, a will), and must be a kind of sensor (piezo?) That transplanted the sound. trs is nice at first.


It should be an adjustment period, it is not empty at dpart, a is not a bass, not really a bass, some play the instrument vertically, others horizontally, whatever happens, will have to get started. It is a fretless, and "cases" are so small, careful accuracy.


a ring, the three possible pots of varied sounds, classic bass sound, a smooth, round, more like an electric bass.


I could try that for now, I would have an ending for my knowledge, only Fender made this kind of instrument, apprciera initiative.
This low should find its place in all styles, both soul / hip hop, rock and electronica that, provided of srieusement sr to get started.

Species of "bean" with tiny 4-string silicone (or something else, I do not remember, anyway it's pretty special touch ...)

Weight ridiculous!

fretless neck .. and very plastok micro piezo

basic adjustments (tone, volume, presence)


So, I'm sorry to criticize radical but it is really impossible to play properly, anyway, for my part, I could not get used to it and it's a shame because the sounds are funny, but the size "toy" of the handle may be adapted to any small hands (children), but not a standard template ......
it's really not that good, or perhaps for someone who plays the mandolin and is therefore used to the tiny sleeves!

same point in the balance, here looks back to a head almost as body weight!

when the piezo, it is very low-end and settings are really crappy to do ..
result: ergonomic rotten!


The sounds are really incredible for an instrument this size: large and hyper bass-like REALLY deep sounds of bass, but with one side "rubber" hyper delivered ..

To give you an idea, I'd say imagine the sound of a bass made of latex!

on the other hand, there's this style that can leave ...
here may correspond to the Dub, the Trip-hop, Reggae and other styles that require low Deaf

a slight lack of definition cons!


I bought this bass after a quick test, because I cracked the unique look and sound of this strange toy, alas, after many tests, I can bring myself to sell it because its interface is really shit ...
which is a shame because the sound "bass latex" I liked, and on stage, the mouth of the thing and the contrast between its size and its enormous ridicule had enough attention!

If you come across one, it is imperative to try it for fun, for cons think carefully before you buy!
I put an overall score of 6 because I do not want to penalize a unique instrument in its class!

Enough said.


But damn idea of ​​such a handle ???!!!
A ridiculous piece of plastic on which one has a sticker representing the neck of a guitar.
Easy access to acute thanks to the form, but imposible to poserun finger in a box!
The rubber cords are nice, but unplayable for a quick game ...
Slap impossible, Thurs Pastorius fretless has for that matter ...
Well, okay, it is miniscule, but ...
The sound is coming quickly, not notes: /


I play metal principalement.Je think for the neo metal asking you not to go beyond the third, we get a sound pretty cool, but not for a faster style: /
I try to shop on a Hartke.
Its ultra bold, impossible to get crystal clear sound.
The sound is really huge!


I just use the store.
It is selling for its size, but frankly, it's the worst thing of!
If you voulier bass sound without having to carry one, take a Godin A4.
I think its just in styles do not just technical or fast like Neo Metal or Electro or you'll sound huge.
Do not even try the other style, and ergonomics will greatly limit yourself, and where you can not sculpt their sound ...
