Ibanez EDB500
It is a good standart low as sailing by gnrales CHARACTERISTICS: 24 frets, knob rglage level of activity of prampli, volume and tone for each micro gn eral. But what makes a particular feature is the matrial of his body: the famous Luthite which produces an unbeatable sound to sustain. The neck is extremely thin, wood and mcaniques are strong without being either the best available. The acastillage gnral is basic but holds water. Both are micro Ibanez of exellent quality.


The handle allows dplacements with great ease and the acute Accessibility assistive technology software is pretty amazing!
The matrial is luthite trslger and use General for this guitar may be the easiest I've ever seen (and I've seen). As for the rglages I think is a somewhat complicated depending on the amp which is a.


I'm so eclectic sound "weird" that produce Bass / Amp Gallien-Krueger is quite atypical. it is called the Lower mtaleux but I played the Jazz-Rock and I think this bass silent fate for me. Well you have to like the sound Ergodyne otherwise go your way. a fat, with a standard reason and sustain an odd timbre, as hoarse.
it may be missing some versatility because you can basically get a few sounds DIFFERENT: Micro Channel and Tone bottom tailpiece and Micro tonanlit bottom bottom and Tone Pickups zero, ... When the Phat eq, it only serves to be ... always back! except to play on dung that saturate all the time.


I use it for a year now and I t was conquered by ease of play, ergonomics compared these sisters (EDA and EDC) that I find ugly, but also by the beauty of sound to acute solos.
The report is probably unbeatable qualitprix compared some Cajot I've experienced and I REALLY think that I would do without this choice hsiter. It is true that both the luthite CHRE less than wood, Ibanez rinvestit the money earned on an electronic 100% reliable.

Mine was made in Korea does, very good violin, in luthite corp. sleeve screws but apparently not adjustable, 24 frets, keys palisandre.
2 ibanez pickups of very good quality pots and 4: a volume of pramplit, volume 2 of each microphone independently, and one of knob adjustable bass / treble.


The neck is super enjoyable, the grip is instantaneous. it is not too late and pai what is more I who surtt pr small hands), it moves very easily on it. access to the treble is really easy thanks to the shape of the body and the table does slightly hollow in the G string between the microphone near the handle and the handle which facilitates slap shots.
it can be a little heavy but nothing can well mchant and slightly curved shape allows it to be positioned very easily.
in terms of sound is not much to say except that the sound I was immediately pleased by the tampering can qualiseur klk seeing what is obtained very easily.


I play mostly rock / metal this bass suits me really well. I also touch a bit of reggae, pop and fuck each and j'arive faith to find my happiness. I play on an old 40W amp and I say that her doi makes it anyway!!.
the overall sound is characteristic of this low, we immediately neighboring the difference with a bass boi. It has a good attack but may be lack of heat, but has still a pallete of its relatively large considering the price of the beast.
with regard to modern technology there is nothing wrong, slap, chords, tapping etc everything goes nikel and sounds!


I have this bass for about 6 months, what I like about it is its looks but also its easy to play and sound. for the price it really surprised me, I try on a Fender Rumble 100 and a Berhinger BX 1200, its pete really.
I try at the same time that a Peavey bass "bass grind" and a stiletto custom Shecter and I think it's really stand out.
The report price is really interressent quality, I would say almost unbeatable!
over time I think I would do the same choice, except perhaps against a low wooden game in the same price ... but with the same characteristics it is very unlikely.

Everything has been said, Korean, Luthite, 24 cases, 4 buttons, one for each microphone, a bass boost and tone. Bridge and chrome hardware standard.


Handle very nice, not too heavy, very precise cutting of the body for optimum playing comfort. In Ergodyne, ergo there, and obviously, they pretty much studied ergonomics for this bass.


The problem lies. Bought in 98 as principal bass, I was very happy sound level. Eventually I found a headless bass hohner b2a and is the ibanez took a slap, equalization is really poor on this EDB500, the sound pallette is much much richer on the hohner and the BTB555.


Today I'm using it more, bought when I was a student, I could not afford to offer me better. Today I has another Ibanez BTB555, a headless hohner b2a that give me both more fun at her (we're not in the same price range) on the other hand comfort level, there is no picture of the EDB500 prevails. I plan to make défretter or resale. Honest low to begin low cost.

Ibanez EDB500
Low to very good quality made in Luthite, the famous Ibanez signed material.

The neck is fairly thin and easy to grip (as typical of Ibanez).

The key is fretted rosewood (24 frets).

4 knobs: volume neck, volume bridge, the preamp Eq. and general tone.

Electronics Ibanez passive pickups with active soap bar style high quality.

Chrome Acastillage basic but sufficient

Mechanical oil bath Gotoh style but I do not know the brand of those in the EDB 500.

Standard Precision bass bridge type.

Output Jack inclined to the front of the instrument (very accessible)

I put 8 because everything is clean and well built but still basic.


The ergonomics of this bass is simply amazing. It is a pleasure to play it. This is my first bass and started, it's very easy to move the stick thin enough. The body is very well designed and the shape of the body perfectly to the abdomen, forearm and even the slap is easier since, under the strings re and soil body was planed down and switch his fingers underneath becomes a real breeze.

Nothing has been left to chance in this view.

As for the settings is very simple too. the phat is pretty simple since Eq operates fully or not with a single knob. it limits the possibilities but it's perfect for beginners and understand bass.

In short I put 10


Personally, I love the slamming of a low rumble and also in his grave. So I'm happy with the sound I get from the Ibanez EDB 500.

The tone is very receptive to anything from slamming and very powerful slap in the treble, you can return to the soft muffled sound quite easily.

The Phat EQ does not change much but the sound is used to send more gain.

The pickups are very good for the general price of the instrument.

Luthite gives the body a particular sound to this bass which gives it character, but lose in versatility. It's a sound that is fairly purring but much less hot.

I play with this bass on a Trace Elliot GP-7 SM 130 and the pair works really well. I also play on a Roland Cube at home and the sound is really great.

on the other hand, if I want to play some funk / slap are not hot enough and groovy (due to the luthite)

In conclusion, this bass is really nice a sound point of view especially for the price but still very limited. Perfect for a beginner or a casual player.


I use this bass for 7 years now and is very solid. She picked up almost everything: dust, knocks, beer, fall and nothing has changed except for two three set to remake necessarily but it's really an instrument sustainable and quality rather solid.

The particular sound
especially ergonomic

fine adjustments

The value for money is really excellent and if it again, I would buy eyes closed.

So in general I will note as 10 compared to its price range, this instrument fills his role very well and even a little more!
