    Quality / price!

    Danelectro Dead On! '58 Longhorn BassPublished on 01/21/12 at 05:56
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Made in China, but well made. Mine has no default. Short scale, made of masonite, 2 lipstick pickups, mechanical guitar (it does not take much to Disagree as much).
    I set up nets ropes course. For the price, no complaints!

    UTILIZATION

    The bass is very light (2kg!!) And incredible in terms of use. Ability to play very fast on the handle. It can stand for hours to play this instrument without feeling any pain in the shoulder. In the sitting position is very comfortable for its shape.

    SOUNDS

    That is the big surprise! The sound is great and powerful, but very old school oriented. However, the knobs allow good flexibility (always back in the register). Fingers to pick it …

    SOUNDS

    That is the big surprise! The sound is great and powerful, but very old school oriented. However, the knobs allow good flexibility (always back in the register). Fingers to pick it as an unbelievable fishing for an instrument also inexpensive. I used it in a rock'n'roll trio's 60, a group of swing songs for children today and in a country band. This ensures low and surprises every time the musicians.
    Level I played on the amp Ashdown, Markbass, fender rumble, ampeg, the sound is always good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Of course you have to like the look and not to seek a modern sound. I played for years on Fender Precision, but back problems forced me to abandon this kind of low.
    I found this Danelectro store and trying it I was immediately won over. I do not part with it and will probably buy more Danelectro bass in the future. For those who are bothered by the shape of the Longhorn, there are the same brand in the "single cutaway bass 56" form a more conventional but very close to his level.
    The quality / price is simply unbeatable in Danelectro. + I swear by this brand name.

    The neck is very fast, pleasant in hand, very late.
    The weight of the instrument behavior and negligible because it is so low. You can play for hours without realizing it so you feel nothing's shoulder.

    The weight of the instrument behavior and negligible because it is so low. You can play for hours without realizing it so you feel nothing's shoulder.
    The shape so typical with these two "big horns" is very comfortable to play standing and perfect for a game sitting. Thigh idalie fits into the curvature of the horn.
    The easy access to acute since there is as much an obstacle as a flying V. It is a perfect low to excite the longitudinal come and go!
    Do you get a good sound easy?

    Are easily obtained good sounds. A relatively wide range of sounds, sound down and smothered the slamming that hurts the ears. on the other hand there is a presence in dtachable boards, mediums, it is very pleasant Features and. Whatever the sound is chosen, it pierces the mix and it is understood.

    SOUNDS

    * Are they suitable style of your music?
    * With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    * What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
    * What are the sounds you prfrez that hates you?
    I play on a Ashdown ABM EVO III with 115 and 210 ashdown ABM. Sounds of hell!
    This bass sounds like a shovel thousand euros, send, twang, and with an overdrive you could imagine in Motorhead ^ ^

    This is really excellent. It is also one of the big strengths of this bass. Have a sound like a, otherwise it is impossible for 300 with a Danelectro.

    I put 9 because, all the same it is very typ so there probably some people who do not like ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I also have a Thunderbird. It is relatively dffrent. It was really the medium rather to nag about Longhorn and much lower than that of TB. Ergonomics also Diffre LOTS. TB tomb is large and round his waist with a logger. The longhorn is lgre, fine and ultra fine to handle.

    Most are indniablement its weight, its sounds and its relation quality price.
    Cons: it must assume its look (the look but also located in the most: D) ​​and remains all the same instrument on some cheap points (knobs, key ...)

    The report price is very high quality. Sound quality was a Rickenbacker (DIFFERENT but also qualitative) for almost ten times cheaper!

    I would do without this choice problem. Copperburst finish is, for me, the most beautiful in Danelectro, the price is just unbeatable for those who list their GAS.

    9 because I put the violin can be improved on some dtails all the same.
