PzD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The versatility made low"

Ibanez BTB470
- Made in Indonesia, with reference technician who made the revision before leaving the factory.
- 4 single-string bridges
- Channel driver
- 24 frets, 2 soapbar Bartoloni MK2
- Bartolini 3-band EQ, Volume and Blend neck pickup / bridge

Apart from some special features to use tree (too) specific, what more?


- Channel Highway, fine and fast, which gives me a big hand cramps after 4 hours of play

- Ergonomics incredible for its size, a little heavy in the long run, but nothing terrible with a very wide strap.

- Access to acute easier than the old generation BTB, either on the E string (OSEF) or soil (yum yum!)

- The sound is quite cold in flat, slamming see if your amp is very warm either. But a good EQ and sews a good blend of adjustment will approach this BTB anything that is better (apart from bass legend), and one instrument, please!


To the Metal (and all its sub-genres), it's good. Cash in D tuning without changing the size of rope.

I granted in Drop-A (LA-LA-RE-MI), with strings Dunlop Nickel 130-105-85-65, and is a treat.

I made my classes with an Ashdown MAG300 EVO II low loading medium, and stained with an Ibanez PD-7 has the chance. Something for novices and more experienced players, all styles together (I play the polka and variety 80 without any trouble).

it has a Traynor YBA-200 II behind for 2 days is a treat!

That versatility made low.


I still use it from time to time in a side project. It has nothing to envy my BTB 705DX EMG equipped assets.

I tried several other LTD BC Rich before going back on her favorite by the time of its release and technical specs.

The pros: the handle, the versatility of the beast, Bartolini pickups and electronics.
The -: maybe weight ... and again.

Unbeatable value for money, especially for the versatility offered.

A choice to make eyes closed!

Ibanez BTB470
Active bass made in Indonesia.Le body is mahogany.
It has a maple neck-24-box a bit wide, but thin enough, with a rosewood fingerboard.
The bridge is a mono-rail Ibanez.
The pickups are Bartolini MK2. For settings, volume, balance, and a very effective 3-band EQ.


The sleeve is very nice and easy to take in hand. The bass is very hard ... I feel that the strings are super stretched over my Rbx Yam. Qualitée manufacturing? Wood very good? I do not know what it brings, but it's very nice.

The ergonomics are excellent, the bass is well balanced and is comfortable to play standing or sitting.
Little more, access to treble is really ideal.

The sound is nice with all settings flat, except maybe treble too present. Hop, a little digging with équalo, and voila, two two the sound is good, very powerful ... maybe even too much? it's been awhile since I had been forced to play with the volume of a guitar or bass that is not thoroughly.


I play an Orange 50BTX, or Amplitube SVX. In Amplitube, so good. In the Orange, who also is very (too) generous in acute, dig more to find the sound, but once found: happiness!

For now, I recorded three songs rock (a little strong) with. A to fingers, and two others to pick. In one case as in the other, the beautiful doing very well, and I'm really in awe of the regularity of his catch! The pickups are very clean and precise. Very nice!

I had fun with older pieces, stuff prog rock, old Bowie, a little funk etc. ... By digging the equalo, we always come easily to his need.

The one thing that frustrates me for now: the dirt of new strings that sound too bright. Should more than I wash my hands until it is better.


I use since ... yesterday. Given the size of the beast, I thought the grip would be longer, but not all. In just three hours I put three pieces in a box with the impression that he had not even require tweaking the tracks so it's all clean!

I play from now, Phew, U20. So I had and used tens of other models from the time and I must say that it really leaves me in awe. Well, already she is very beautiful. But it is especially easy to play, comfortable, and has a range of sounds that can play rock, funk, metal, and certainly much more.

Beauty is sold at about 550/600 roros, which is a value for money really good (as often with Ibanez).
In a little snooping on the net (which I did) one can find for a price more than a gift. The
