Cort Action-A
-my cort action-a was made in Indonesia, i dont know is it good or bad place for guitars to be manufactured.
-24 frets, Power Sound P & Jazz pickups, bolt on construction.
-bridge EB7(4)
-it has 2volume, 2-band active EQ
-neck Maple, Modern "C" Shape


Neck is nice to feel, easy to slide through all length. it's also easy to access last frets. it has great design, it is not very heavy and has beautiful shape, also extremely comfortable to play. i think that its not hard to get a nice sound from it.


-it suits any style of music, metal, rock, jazz, anything.
i use Crate gt65 guitar amp. its suposed to be an electric guitar amp, but it has no dificulties coping with low, bassy sounds if i dont play too loud.
when playing i really like clean bass sounds, no distortion... amp is used only to control volume. cort 2vol, 2-band active EQ contols is all i need to modify sounds...


I own my cort action-a bass for about a month by now, first i had "jolana" one old bass made in Checoslovakia and i can say that Cort bass is much beter than jolana.
what i like about cort is that you get a nice, high quality instrument for a reasonable price. really worth the money you pay.

Cort Action-A
Agathis body,
Channel Saddle "modern C shape" super enjoyable, rosewood fingerboard,
A micro and a PB Powersound JB, fixed bridge,
Bass and treble knob 2 + 2 volume knob finally I believe
24 frets,
Strings (105-45) I always APRS 1year 1 / 2 of use
Nothing fancy but it's good stuff


The neck is super enjoyable I find the treble is good at CASC even if I go not require the often low.
Good ergonomics: you can play standing up without getting tired.
Can be obtained thanks to the sounds Varis knob which allows everyone to find the sound that he likes.


For the price you will not be of sound is very round and warm, all we can expect a low for beginners and even more. This low trs sending the right sound with my amp behringer "BLX 450" hot fat mtallique ... All we want and feasible.
I play rock a little jazz, funk is this bass is perfect, trs Polyval.


I use it for 1year 1 / 2 and I would do the same choice a thousand times if I'm curious trs;)
I like its sound and its impeccable finish (never had a problem) and its beautiful color
The report qualitprix is ​​impeccable! Ruez above you!

Like all Cort (I think), this bass comes from Korea.
what made me watch this model is the fact that this bass is active.


The handle is very nice and I found the bass very very lightly.
The 4 pots can easily tailor the sound by combining the 2 microphones or not ...


I already own a Fender Jazz Bass, who fills his role very well, but I needed a more modern sound with more attack ... And that's what I get with this bass, very incisive (necessarily compare to my Fender ..).
In addition to having a good catch, you can really work on her and get a range of bass ... that's exactly what I wanted.
However, I keep my old Fender bass because these 2 have really not the same character!

I do not own a bass amp that blows old, and I hardly used.
I attack my sound card directly (ULN2) or my digital preamp (Aphex 207D).


Initially I wanted a Curbow, but eventually the two microphones, have had my preference, and for the price, I find the unexpected result!
For a few days that I possess, and this is my 2nd bass.
What I like most is the sound so different than my Fender and the handle. In short, a nice bass and versatile, with a new price also nice.

Cort Action-A
Characteristics already mentioned before.


Use of this bass is a treat for beginners.
The bass is not too heavy, well balanced, access to treble is very easy. That said, receiving the strings were not sufficiently elevated, which was curling on the first fret when I was playing to empty, but a flick of the key at the easel to the back and it was perfect:) (5 minutes to do that).
Also the handle is very comfortable to play.


Must first know that for the price, obviously, you will not get the sound of a low at 1000 €;) But it remains that this is a very versatile bass . Micro DB allow her to have a rather round I really like JB and microphone allows a more banging. That said, we can notice some weaknesses, first at the power of microphones and microphone JB somewhat nasal sound:) This requires a change of pickups where experience comes in and we begins to feel the limits. However, for this price range, you will not find better, and for beginners, it is quite simply this sound for a long time:) I use this bass


3 years now, and objectively, we can say that this is one of the best value for money on this price (for having heard Ibanez, Yamaha and Squier, I prefer the versatility of the Cort).
The major flaw is that the microphones be we should change after a while because we feel the limits (but still I held 2 years, do not think that after 2 weeks of learning, you will feel the need to change;))
In hindsight, I would do without a doubt this choice seems to me that one of the wiser to learn to play bass, or even to have a low relief for not too expensive (we never know ^ ^) &% & %&%&% A (very) good bass to start
