trevellin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
4-string bass button Saddle 20 boxes, four standard fixed bridge vintage bridges, lacrosse and logo stamped "Fender Precision Bass" recall '70s, a volume knob, a Tone of a jack on the shield 3 ct folds of volume and tone and a single micro my dear!
small precision (ah, the pun!) and the Tone knob to contain a circuit Tone baptized "greasebucket" which cuts the highs without adding bass (well, used a Tone the basic filter is sharp ... it's not supposed to add some serious, so they have not invented gunpowder fender ...), so selling all debatable ...
ah! precision of the handle!
really super comfortable for the lower of this ilk, everything rings true on this low, you are in the bass or the treble, it's always a "feeling" unbelievable!
ergonomics, not many beginners from the volumes of the 50's, when you have a product that works just as well, why do better?
Access in acute is good, always happy to play there ...
sound, my son is that the precision in all its glory!
This precision should always rock to jazz and possibly if you turn the Tone bottom; I think the natural sound of the precision prdestine do not quite able to play and he have to v Galise on the amp or an equalizer graphic prvoir pedals for him to play something else ...
the sound is clear (normal, Saddle button), although prcis (o name) and it is in the territories it will rock o queen, a couple ampeg, it's wonderful ! (I would have plugged into an SVT-4 Pro to get the "mga her"!)
nanmoins, I am sure she can venture into territories of jazz by removing the treble with the tonality, but it will never be anything else, or he must turn to her sister's jazz bass! !
I love this bass, so, for me, I do not dtest!
I tried it this afternoon APRS and I'm delighted!
yet I am a bass player demanding in terms of sound, but this precision, it is simple and it sounds!
a moment of my life, I swore that the electronic active, but for some time, I told myself I wanted to play on these instruments that are the basis of everything I say the jazz bass and precision, I had standards above-priori and, finally, by simply curiosities I glimpse that we could have some nice sounds in fender, yes, no dmentiels sounds like the kind ibanez bass active high-end, but the little sounds they possdent enough to place in a group ... APRS, you can still see catalog fender there pltore low active and they sound amazing (like the precision or jazz bass active victor bailey signature).
Then, I have AIM on it; sound simple and empty the precision, pace rtro, key stocky, the precision of sound and intonation of the frets, comfort of play
I have less AIM damage, there is no more sonic possibilities!
I find the report qualitprix trs good!
Finally, I think, a couple Ampeg SVT-4 pro, should sound just standard, I did the test with a portabass and grain dj ampeg and its clear the precision marvel getting married!
