UTILIZATION

The use and comfort of this bass are more interesting, it is a low mid scale (average pitch) it is therefore between a low normal, and a short scale.

It was more or less the advantages of both Previous but without a lot of pitfalls of:

Because it is hollowbody (quarter case) and average pitch, the bass is more lgre and handy, its handle a little shorter than standard handle appropriate to the smaller size while keeping ca sustain impressive.

The axis is easy thanks to sharp notches has therefore nothing to repeat the above.
The electronics is one little easier: 1 volume pot neck, a bridge volume 1 pot and a tone, they rpondent very well, which I must say is rare! (And even among brands which I will mention the name ...)

Do you get a good sound easy? :
-It puts all the pots thoroughly, and it takes a slap ...

I put 9 because this bass is very well thought t Designed and difficult to find a default unless you really look for the tiny bte ..

SOUNDS

The bass sound is pretty versatile, browsing the two microphones, and the tonality is just really hit a fairly large palette of sounds.

The neck pickup has a really warm and round sound, a big big sound.

The bridge pickup is dynamic and specific on it is more reactive, it is also exellent with distortion.

Both pickups together combine the advantages of both a sound.

My rglage prfer is: stick microphones thoroughly, bridge pickup was 1 / 3 tone and a 1 / 4.

The results in a big round sound, but with a touch of vintage sailing a bit ...

We feel we have really good microphones in hand, I used this bass in various situations studio or live performances, and frankly, nothing to fault, the microphones in the neighborhood rpondent turn and are at ease in different situations (rock sounds clear, distortion, light overdrive sounds vintage, pop sounds, sounds more aggressive ...)

I put 10 Because the quality is there, and for once, I had nothing to complain about:)

OVERALL OPINION

I tried quite a few models before this bass, and I had a little slap of my traditional "Precision Bass" or "Jazz Bass". I was in search of something different, has both the visual, as the game.
And I have not been due since we seem to have an ES-339 but low in the hands is quite special.

is a excellent bass and good value qualitprix, 1350 euro area, and everything is for the price! It provides much of the live, studio, and RPTE ..
The violin is perfect, the electronics are perfect, the quality of this bass has nothing to envy from fender or gibson, at all!

I would do it without hesitating choice, for making the studio and with the scene, it made me more than justice .. The sound is incredible and the bass is stable.
