Made in Japan
22 frets, rosewood handle
2 pickups, 1 volume, 1 tone, 1 3-position selector
Channel pleasant, classic shape, a little heavy, normal access to acute, its basic.
This bass was my ally in a group Rock / Hard for some years, and not the original bass guitarist but I'm satisfied.
To find a sound, it should not be too demanding!
It was wired on a Marshall 2 body (head JMP 2203).
She made her weight, and after 1:30 Concert starts shoulder enjoy!
I use it almost ... except perhaps to find / register bass lines on my songs.
I bought used in batch with a drum machine yamaha almost nothing for a long time ago ... (What year?)
What I like least is its original appearance (brown, cream, color wood) I quickly revamped into repainting the yellow. (See pictures below)
- Low Japanese (Matsumoku), produced from beginners 80s (84 for mine).
- Medium scale (to fit tiny hands of the Japanese market it seems, but I do not know if it's a legend), be careful, I saw two others taient Mount long scale strings are in, and it's obviously not been planned to! So 32-inch ropes binding (flat or round, 2 it will!)
- 2 precision microphones (yes, config Plutt rare!), With a 3 position switch (see below) and tone.
Channel viss (nice effect with neck through, but is not one). With 22 boxes. Particularity of the handle: Aria as on many of the great era (SB-1000 for example), the strings are the parallelism of the bridge saddle. Drout is 5 minutes, APRS can not live without it!
As mentioned above, by its original design, its size, the parallelism of the strings is extremely comfortable. on the other hand, if it is suitable for small hands, she does not agree to frles shoulders: it is very heavy! That's probably the secret of its depth and power of sound. With a good belt, spent well, but better to be prvenu!
The two microphones are molded precision each in a rectangular cover very broad practice to ask his thumb.
on the other hand, forget the slap, it's not that (strings too close and too close to the neck pickup ... sleeve!)
J'hsite between 7 and 8, because I think it's very personal comfort on this bass. Come on, I turn 8, she is me!
TSB = Thor Bass Sound; In fact, it's thunder. I do not understand the opinion Previous (MODEL dfectueux? Longscale strings? Ears guitarist Anyway, to paint in yellow, do not love the bass collection ...) . The output level is amazing, and the switch 3 positions us well travel DIFFERENT worlds: on the neck pickup is a nice big sound accuracy, extremely low charged with normment of Seat and velvety. On the bridge pickup, it gets closer to his easel jazz bass, but much less nasal. And 2 microphones; is hoarse, medium well, Rick was the sound reminds
comfortable (except the weight), ultra-versatile! When we see, with its small size, its 2 drles microphones, we do not take necessarly in seriousness, but it played .... ds I have other quality basses (including a Fender Victor Bailey, an Aria SB-1000, and ex: Stingray, G & L. ..), but this is my little jewel, and I want DS sends a sound on stage, she's the one I take. And each song, a little bit of a switch, and presto, another sound! Low
