I play Rock and blues, but I dj essay on the pop and jazz, has spent much trs.
I plug the bass on a Hartke 3500 and a case Hartke 4 * 10 inches, was killed ... even if I have not explored all the possibilities of this set.

Driver 34 '

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it fun?

could not be better ... really late and so right ... so long as!

- Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?

a breeze, which can really play the entire length of the handle without having to break your wrists!

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

light as a feather, bevelled on the back, very comfortable

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...

it all depends on the research ... but on average, I think so

SOUNDS

- They are suitable to your style of music?

yesh

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?

alembic ==> U5 ==> amp any lamp ==> 2 * 10 + 1 * 15 MESA ...

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

you can spend on the well-acute fatty snoring is the amp (and thereby blow the amp ...)

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

Sounds pretty high medium or acute. Can be compensated with the electronics but the register "natural" the bass is at the top of the spectrum.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

9 good months, and regularly

- What is so special that you like most and least?

the sound is excellent, and playing comfort as much ...
I do not like the stuff ... I see ... if not too! the handle is too long (so uncomfortable to play in the long run!

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

a few ... including a carbon Schack it without comment ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?

alembic on a nine, I find it a bit excessive (quoique. ..) then for a time, it's happiness!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

no doubt ...
