MGR/Anonymous's review"Ibanez EDB600 Ergodyne"

Ibanez EDB600
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 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.

OVERALL OPINION

I am a beginner, a bass. Question I find that it's not sound too bad but can be a little cold.
I plugged into a preamp tube art has to have a slight grain. The equalizer is pretty low so we easily find the sound that one seeks.

Everything is said dj

UTILIZATION

La Lancha is enjoyable, the acute CHAC is good ergonomics too. There comes a good sound for the price, attack a lot.

SOUNDS

I'm mainly mtal with this low aps worries it works well, we're in on the other hand for ibanez something a little more round c forcment not empty, another c bcp does not see jazz men with low c egenre.

OVERALL OPINION

I have 5 years and no worries, the report RPIX quality is excellent for me but now it has had its day and I look dsormais invest in a jazz bass. Exprience with this choice I would do without worry but beware this is not a versatile instrument trs my taste.

Ibanez EDB600
Made in Korea, 24 frets, 2 passive pickups DHX, one towards the bridge and the other to handle
body luthite quite heavy, nice matt black paint
maple neck rosewood fingerboard, quick and pleasant, but not adjustable
5 settings: volume, balance microphones, equalizers three active
jack well positioned and pretty

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, the access to ease acute
the bass is heavy, it is felt when playing standing a while, better to have a comfortable strap!
if the microphones are convenient to put your thumb between the microphone near the handle and handle the bass is cut to facilitate the slap.
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.
