diquoi's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" my first"

Cort FM-2
4 strings, nut alluvial, codier aluminum alloy easel

height adjusted by turning the nut, over time I realize that storytelling is zero for c rule, its vibrates heavily in acoustic

humbucking or single I do not remember active or not I do not know
on the other hand there is a preamp with boost
a funky wah, and a slap fashion

benchmarks well finished but visible trace of tooling round, probably a drilled


Then I learned to do with the bass.
starting to pick because I'm a scratch, before taking a lesson against a masterful jazz bassist who played with a fender jaazbass with fingers on the strings of steel against low, so I learned self-taught bass with three must begin
CAD ring index for normal plant, and ring index for major stroke
but in order to play faster more accurate I must play with four CAD
major index finger ring, see basseux of cannibal body =)

I also make the Octo-tapping

So with this bass I could do whatever I wanted because I turn the knobs I found some kind of sound I play.

a friend had set factor guitar work high, its never change.

the instrument is right.


home I did everything with ditto in another situation, but often get put directly into a console boost.

death (nile cannibal body, black (marduk mayhem immortal burzum slavia (above)), grind (blockhead, grosnibard, sublim cadaverously decomposition), dub, industrial metal (rammstein nin ministry, front 242 marilyn M), punk (ramones sex psistol ( but has to)), rap (the rumor mtn, joe star), crust, and another and another she typed her little to do.


over 7 years, I regret toy on both guitar and bass array, because I really wanted a toy on a track or markbass elliot but home.

but over time I made that one count is low on all this was the least gain head, I find her, you branch the sounds you play

Low made in Korea.
24 frets, 2 Bartolini pickups under license (passive soapbar)
Controls: 1 volume control (yes I know ...), adjustable bass, midrange, and treble and finally a balance for the pickups. More than one switch assets - liabilities very useful!
And the icing on the cake: a built-in Wah Wah: there is a switch to activate the right next to the asset-liability (when the effect is on a small red LED lights s) and settings are done with the beast a small cruciform.
Bolt, rosewood fingerboard.


The handle is rather nice, very fast and very end. It is very comfortable, both sitting and standing, rather slight, and the controls are standard.


Resolutely FUNK! Especially with the slap autowah ... really nice ...
Nevertheless I rock without problem, and jazz. Given all the controls that offer this low range of the sound is really excellent.
Its really very good.
In hindsight, I think a change of pickups for true Barto would not be an evil and multiply the possibilities of this low ...


It's been one month preque I have l and c is a BOMB !!!!!!!
The effect is delusional and comfort of play is optimal!
I got the new store has Pigalle (La Centrale) to € 530, so very good price / quality ratio.
Only details: the small logo on the side might not appeal to everyone but no detail is that one ... Microphones and can be a change, possibly for more potato.
In short: if you are looking for a bass funk / jazz fusion: a try!

Obsolete Audio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Cort FM-2
Korean manufacturing (very good finish)
24 frets
easel solid pickups Bartolini MK1
Volume, balance, low, mid, hi, auto wah switch, switch passive / active.
On the back: decay, treshold, level, gain, depth slap.
Handle very comfortable and fast, rather late, a little too soft for my taste but good all the world not mistreat his instrument.
here's a bass that offers adjustability little too comprehensive to be successful in finding the sound that has character


The above has nothing to say comfort is the appointment, weight and shape allows me to spend long hours (6) of standing without undergoing repeated.
very good access to acute
as I said above, there is so much possibility that yes, we can find a good sound, and even more ..


The sound is clean (too clean for my taste but my ear has evolved)
it can also do well in jazz, funk, rock, metal and hardcore of racing grind, pop, surf, cold wave, blues ...
for not too much noise
It is very versatile
can be aggressive, sweet, hot, cold
I use it with distortion ibanez phat hed in, I Accarda in C, G, C, F, I used a Fender Rumble 100 (very good amp for the price really) the sound was already very well marshall on (dan biting midrange and lower midrange) Hartke (head + 4 * 10) (Yeah it's going without) Roland DB500 (his very ill-defined but chad) Laney RBW 100 (the amp that is not cool n ' neither the cash nor the attack subwoofer) peavey tnt 115 (acceptable) and most recently on pro and corp ampeg svt3 svt410he (revelation, I hear every note of my rope's low C very close to that of Kim Gordon).
for the budget I recommend the Fender Rumble 100 that meets much still the sound of this bass
the sound that's missing is an incisive to the Jesus Lizard or Shellac, this vien probable ment of the rather active electronics.


I last year I fell in love with the comfort and speed of play the sound was the appointment
I will keep very long so it allows me sound is a low open-minded. Cort feels really good stuff
The downside: a lack of personality (whatever) I think to buy a model with more character type or Danelectro Fender Precision
For 749 euros you can get new eyes closed, Asian models have nothing to envy a U.S. registered sometimes poorly finished (yes).
