Sound: While the slap, and will remain so. On central harmony, a guy puts it's Stanley Clarke on the bridge pickup, a JB better dfini to the intermediary, and best dfini P on the neck pickup: Ben is a. Huge potato, it is really active, the infra if you will, and growl, mamma mia, a growl, something fabulous. Just the jazzy sound will then be worked with these constraints, but overall it's ti-ta-nesque, you never want to leave. My MM Stingray, although it is a good bass, is REALLY ple contained in a register ct package. Alembic is standard.

SONORITS

I play Ampeg SVT3Pro + TecAmp L410, qq pedals

It's really very very well for stuff, very versatile, but the problem is that you have all the other instruments are the height, otherwise we tend to Note the group ... Goofy.

Excellent eq-board ultra powerful, indispensable. The possibility of contrler the "pan" between the two microphones is excellent: you want a JB tip in your P? No problem. Just over full? A little more than singing? Ok also ... Goofy.

Huge potato slap. Excellent for the song, dub, nu-jazz, finally stuff. Everything in. I think she should also very well with some config Mtal rglages. The sounds are at the same time very typs and very versatile. But you also have to adapt his game, it does not engage in such beautiful. Great potential to rglages, certainly, but also digital subtleties: next attack, finger positions, supports, standards exprimentations possibilities of sound. And always that little grain, whatever in the sound that no Fender has never done and that we can not do without. Crazy, I tell you.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I Reue this week, an opportunity to 8 years who has not boug if not qq small pet '. I would probably have to wait a bit before posting, but I wanted to immediately write it; I will return if held ...

What I like most: THE sounds have the @ #! / growl, grain, rglages, playing comfort, the subtleties, the potential versatility since the accompaniment of songs lightweight patator the return of the terrible.

The least: the price (albeit secondhand, given the quality and rendering is excellent), the rarity that at first glance it appears that some less pretty low and encrusted with 500 everything and (at the very first sight only), the fact that I have not the same in fretless.

Q / p: super secondhand, uh ... totally out of (my) new price.

If I would do this choice? Ha! Ha! Ha!
