    Ibanez EDB600Published on 05/10/04 at 15:00
    I bought my bass in 1999 from Sam Ash for just under $500. I tried a few basses out including the Soundgear but this was the one I fell inlove with.

    First off, the neck is nice and small making it very easy to fly around the frets. The bass itself is very light and fits perfectly against your body. The sound is very versatile though I'm not sure how good it if for funk style playing.

    I have no complaints. The one knock I've seen from people who like this bass is about the low end and having difficulties with the action. I had this problem aswell when I tried tuing my 4 string down to C. It was easily solved by using Rotosound Flatwound strings (the heaviest gage they have..I believe......

    I have no complaints. The one knock I've seen from people who like this bass is about the low end and having difficulties with the action. I had this problem aswell when I tried tuing my 4 string down to C. It was easily solved by using Rotosound Flatwound strings (the heaviest gage they have..I believe the E string was a 115.) The low end was like melodic thunder and I had no problem with buzzing at all.

    It's one of those basses that no matter what level you are at..you pick it up and go..hey I can play this thing. It's a beautifully made bass and just looks cool.

    Excellent bass. I recommend it anyone.

    I got this at Guitar Center for about $400. I tried a couple of different body types and this felt good.

    It has a beautiful tone when compared to other basses in it's price range. The neck is slightly thicker than the GSR series but thin enough for easy chords.

    This is somthing that comes with most Ibanez basses and that's a somewhat narrow neck. It's a personal prefrence thing but its still important.

    It got dropped while I was standing on a chair. It broke a coffee cup and a computer monitor but the bass came out without a scratch. It still plays well and that was a year ago.

    I actually bought this bass, unlike most of the basses that I just play around with in my store. It runs around $500 at most shops, and is really good for that price.



    To tell you the truth I picked up this bass at first just because it looked good, but it was the feel of it that made me not want to put it down. It's made of Luthite, which is unbelievably light, and provides a really nice tone. The body also had a gorgeous grey/black eel look to it, which is indeed something that spawn envy. One of the good things about it is that even a smaller person like my son can even play this bass without discomfort because of it's shape and weight. Now to the tone, which is pretty standard for......

One of the good things about it is that even a smaller person like my son can even play this bass without discomfort because of it's shape and weight. Now to the tone, which is pretty standard for a 4 string. It doesn't hit those punchy stomach lows like some of the other models, but it was really thick an I heard no break-up on some of my larger Mesa combos. The neck is easy to play, and against my surprise it stayed in tone the whole while I used it.



    Takes mass amounts of care in my opinion. I feel this is more of a studio bass that something you kill on stage! The body is easy to blemish and goes dull as soon as you finger prints touch it. Not as low as some of the other 4 strings I've played in it's range either, despite it's still a great one.



    The construction other than the faulty finish is excellent. This is definately a body bass, meaning it was designed with comfort to the human body in mind. It has active electronics, 3 piece maple neck with 24 fret medium fingerboard, 3-band EQ, and DHX pickups.



    It's a very versatile bass. Maybe it doesn't have the lowest tones, but for people who play multiple genre's of music and need a reliable bass, I'd say give it a try. It'd also definately be a highlight of any bass collection.

    - Electric Bass 4 strings, 24 frets (Asian manufacturing)
    - 2 humbuckers
    - An active preamp (bass, mid, treble) + 1 + 1 knob overall volume mix of microphones
    - Body and handle Ergodyne (matriau is a composite, a rsine)
    - Touch wood

    UTILIZATION

    - The handle end and trs trs is pleasant (very good varnish / coating).
    - The rgonomie is excellent mainly due to diffrent dcoupes and dcochements (ACCS easy to acute dcochement spcial slap on the table)
    - The bass is heavier than lgrement wooden coffee (with a good strap, no worries)

    - The sound can be carved on the low (a good amp with a neutral rglage Just get the hell)

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are oriented rock music today. The sound is full, powerful and excellent for slap.
    We can model the equalizer from the bass, however, it is hard to find the sound of the 70es.
    I note 8 / 10 because the bass is plutt directs contemporary music.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I use it for 2 years. No worries
    - I love her powerful, perfect for style funk / rock / mtal
    - The ratio price quality is excellent

    Some may be "what a body rsine!" actually, it's not wood. At the same time aa rnorm the advantage of not being subject to climatic conditions (humidity)
    I remake that choice without hsiter for numrs styles above (ct buying a jazz bass sound for "vintage")

    As often in TRS Ibanez (G
    RG550EX a guitar too), while a t pens to facilitate the game If you plant it's your fault, not the instrument!

    I regret nanmoins:
    - The frets could be bigger for a more prcise intonation.
    - The belt clip more auraientt be more bigs.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is good, it seems that the composite body makes it less rich and colder, but I admit that personally, I do not care a bit. Gnrale of Manir, I think a riff is a good riff, whatever the instrument on which it is played. It's not a warmer or cooler that will save a riff 2 balls.

    I play metal (heading in black) with many passages of acoustic and electro. Thanks the active equalization of bass, I always find the sound for a given shift.

    The bass and qualisation mdiums trs is effective, and corrects the sound dramatically. By rglage against the treble does not change much, but hey, on a low, you might say ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for three years, I have used in concert and in-home studio, she is responsible.

    G saw in concert the bass groups Nile (United States) and Gojira (France) use a type of bass.
    C of death metal, it can be har style, but we can not say that these are bad musicians, their technical level as lev especially for Nile ... o carrment it becomes frightening. In short, I do not think the musicians as they would use a bad bass ...

    G had several guitars before finding one that is best for me (an Ibanez!), But THE FIRST Ergodyne is lower than G bought and I'm not a prt of the spare! It combines both a look mortal jouabilit a perfect and a more than adequate. Oh yes, may be that I would change if Ibanez fancy a day out in the same Prestige MODEL!

    The price is justified I do not think you will regret this purchase.

    Precision: I do not pay by Ibanez! I just think, for the different instruments have jou diffrent of brands, they are the finest instruments and especially ... the easiest to play.

    the sound is easily adjustable, but the equalizer acute affects very few, and it's hard to get a good sound slap in the upper strings (the lack of power)
    or we can play a lot of styles but the sound is cold and lack of character, convenient for those who love or looking for a rather neutral

    SOUNDS

    I am not a super fan of sounds but it's still very very correct.
    I use a multi effects BP50 models especially for some amps to embellish the sound or fit a style.
    I do not like the sound slap not really end, otherwise it's fine.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been almost two years since I played with in many different styles.
    it is quite handy and it was easy to adapt to the handle nice, the handling is great.
    I tried several models but say it better suited to my budget, was a very good value for money, but I do not know much about that time.
    I will not purchase this bass if I had the same budget, I would rather a wooden body and a bass with a more timeless style, but I still advise fans of rock and metal and beginners if they are in occase a good price.
