It's a low from Indonesia whose handle has 24 frets. He has a respectable length of 889mm, width at nut is 38mm and 62mm at the table. The two big pickups have DX4 template double coils. This bass is active and has 3 knobs: 1 volume, scale and micro phat 2 which is a kind of boost control for graves.L set is rather light and well finished with a nice shape to me but whose side "metal" will not please everyone.

UTILIZATION

After a proper adjustment of the string action, the handle, very fine, turns out to be a real highway .... but a long highway ... This may be disconcerting at first, but you get used quickly. Access to the treble is very easy. This guitar is well balanced and light weight allows it to play too long without tiring. The sound settings disturbed me a little early so I quickly gave up looking for the roundness experiment rather big sound very heavy. I also used a lot for the slap: a low action on this four-lane highway is a real push to crime, and there, as there is no radar, there is no reason to sulk its fun ....

SOUNDS

This bass fits one or two styles of music I play. I plug in my bass kick 515 in setting the matrix on the position slap. I put the phat 2 and the volume up and I'm just playing with the balance microphones to type in the heavy fingers, pick or see the funk slapper. However, there still this lack of warmth in the sound that bothers me but do not forget that this bass, I bought it new at 270 €. So the contract is already largely filled ...

OVERALL OPINION

1 year ago, I went to buy a set of strings and I'm back with everything that goes around. A favorite due to envy of the motorway, the discovery of an original look, sound and heavy metal and a lightweight, all for a small fee. The only real flaw is the accessibility of the cell that requires the use of a screwdriver and lack of roundness in the sound. If today I found out this low, I do not know if I buy it. It is a favorite, an atmosphere of Christmas and New year. I've thought about selling it but every time I play, I tell myself it is certainly limited in styles of play but in his chosen fields, keeping in mind its low cost, it is excellent
