Ibanez EDB600
It's basically your decent quality modern bass. With a few extra features, like the ergodyne material it's made out of.

Price paid



It has a very slim "fast" neck, which means the strings are a little closer together than most basses. It IS on the heavy side, so a small person might have a problem playing standing up for long periods of time.

This is a very well built bass. I think it will last lifetimes with regular maintanace. It is very solid, so it can be manhandled with little worry of damage. It is made of very strong material. I often come across cracked basses in pawn shops. Usually where the neck meets the body, I dont think it's really a problem for this bass though.


This bass is capable of producing a very wide range of tones. The pickups are great because they are noisy like Fenders. It is an active bass with 3 eq knobs for LOWS MIDS and HIGHs, so the sonic possibilities are limitless. It is however a relatively modern sounding bass, but can recreate vintage tones with the proper processing. The edb600 is made out of a man made material created for bass guitars, I think thats what gives it the distinctive tone.


I LOVE this bass. Not only does it have everything I need to play a wide variety of genres, but the fact that its so comfortable to play makes it my favorite bass. I think I would buy another one if i ever lost this one. I call it the Giger, it reminds me of some of his paintings. It has a really modern look, and sounds incredible.

MGR/Jeffultura's review"Ibanez EDB600 Ergodyne"

Ibanez EDB600
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 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.

MGR/James's review"Ibanez EDB600"

Ibanez EDB600
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.

The other guy that reviewed the bass is an idiot. This is a wonderful instrument for the price. I can't think of a reason someone wouldn't want this bass. You might try some of the new BTB basses though. I haven't played one but they look pretty sweet.

Bronislas's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
In Korea, in the same factories as Cort if I'm not mistaken. Korean manufacturing by the way, it's all good. I am impressed by the finish.

- How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
24 frets, two passive pickups and large active electronics (3 band eq) Ibanez.

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Ibanez bridge, which makes me think Hipshot bridges.

- What are the settings (volume, tone, selector micro ...)?
3-band eq, volume, and micro switch.

- What kind of stick?
Channel pitch long (34 "), very thin, with a profile" U ".


- The handle is it nice?
Very, before I had a bass Epiphone EB-0 with a handle short-scale fine, and I had no trouble to me.

- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
The body is made of a resin, the body is curved at the last frets to facilitate the slap. I do not see what we could do better honestly ...

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
It joins the previous point, the resin provides a lot of quirks, but compared to the EDA and EDC models, ergonomics is more classical but equally effective.

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
The pickups and electronics are very clean. A little too much, lover growl refrain. The sound may seem a bit cold, but I appreciate its definition. It delivers all its potential mediator or slap in my opinion. Finger in the manhandling she also becomes a little fun. The weight is not a dominant criterion in me, I think it is correct, even if it is heavier than the Epiphone EB-0.


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
I used to work my game It fits everywhere and I'm really not disappointed.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Microbass a Peavey or straight into the PC. In both cases I do not notice any problems

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
Like I said earlier, this is not a Precision, but it can issue a lot of serious, medium (or even too!), Ditto for the treble. We can sculpt the sound you want, pouvru sought to remain in the sounds clear enough.

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I love to play mediator and slapper, but the knobs or tampering with a focus on neck pickup, I can have very serious tones that I like.


- For how long have you been using it?
Two months.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
I love its reliability, it hardly goes out of tune! I liked the smell a little less of "oil" (resin requires). But leaving it in my room all the time, and by airing it I do not feel its smell. My friends do not notice it.

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
A little while the very low range bass over 1500 €. New it had to be within the average range. But I have heard that she was the better for low slapper in its lineup. I have not tried everything, but it's true that it sends slap. If it were not so "classic" and if she had a little more personality, it would have been a popular instrument I think. On occasion, I must say it really pulverized any new model would cost in the same waters. I might have are much more expensive models that I keep for work.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Without hesitation! It's bass work, one that never disappoints, which reserves no surprises. This is the best shade, which does not shine by his exuberance, but is invaluable. Before I played the bass as a hobby. Today I have a reliable tool with which I want to advance, for little more than a pack a beginner! Hard to beat.

The handle is incroyabement handy, extra fine! Jouabilit maximum. That's what makes the quality of this model intrinsque. For my part I use a pull rope end trs (extra light) 30,50,70 and 90 for the E string. The sound is great!

Beware of any sharp rglage same, I play often Slap (it lends it well) and loves to have my rope trs prs Handle


I play jazz, and I accompany the electro (effects) I play an Ampeg B-1, everything is perfect


I've had + - 5 years, I shall not change for anything else.
to dpart, I wanted to invest at least double the price of this bass, I came across it and I thought .... is that the!

Ibanez EDB600
Everything is already said


The handle end trs wound those who play fast and often changing tresq strings.
Access to acute: Quite simply the body begins the 24me fret.
Form very erogoniomique, the fact that it is slightly hollow can carry very high if desired, and also play the bass.
get a good sound with the equalizer ais.


I am rather in mtal eccellente and is for that. She slams well and produces a somewhat cold and less wound has some other
Test on a 4 * 100W lamp on a Peavey Basic 50 and a 200GB Line. The sound is captured in all cases, and it sounds great for rock em tal


I use it for a month and frankly it is excellent! With the experience I would do this choice I think!

Croed's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
Made in Korea, Ergodyne Corp., handle end in Saddle 24 frets, 2 active pickups.
Pramplification active (9v battery) 3 boost (bass, mdium, acute), which potentiomtre a balance between the pickup and one volume.


The handle is trs enjoyable by its narrow width, Access in an acute very easy.
The set is very well equilibrated against what by what is heavy, compared with a low wooden body good but you get used to all the same with a good strap.
Is obtained quickly we want legalization, with its hyper-potentiomtres prcis.


I play many styles of music, its major flaw is the lack of sustain and slap sound that does not sound terrible at all compare my precision bass.
I play an old amp kestrel (a tasteless), so your exact is not terrible, but I tried it on other bass amp worthy of the name, and I realized that I ' had the sound, prcis with a strong attack with a nice bass sound diffrent certainly more conventional but no less inintressante.


It's going to be 2 years that I use, I am satisfied and rev it a wonder complte
with my bp.
I tried other before acqurir. But I had a good budjet of 600 euros and for me
It was the best-recherchprix qualitson report. It is on this choice I would do with a still lower that the more classic complterai

My only regret and weight of 8kg incroyableprs, Dos fragile refrain!

Admittedly this is not low for Jazzeux but for Mtalleux
Kickback jobtient on my perfect sound, I add a Bigg Muff for distortion, and a cry baby bass for the wha-wha and a sound worthy of jobtient Slayer
greasy while still attacking !!!!!
that is with the gibson thunderbird 4, Spector Euro 4 and ESP Tom Araya, the best bass in the subject of his and + is the least CHRE 570E


It's been 3 years I have taken possession of me before I give jou a Yamaha RBX250 (you can feel the difference)
The report price is exellent quality because the bass is unique and his too!
I do not regret this purchase and can highly recommend it!

Mat186's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
Made in Korea.
24 frets, 2 doubles active Ibanez
Volume, EQ low, mid, treble. Slecteur micro three positions.
Round and round just not wide at all.
Low gray feet the head, it's cool, it's class.
Matriau composite body, I remember the name.


The neck is perfect, whatever you ask Manir hands on it.

Accs perfect all the hoops, including some 24 brands would do well to be inspired, including their guitars!

Excellent ergonomics, the balance is perfect.

There is a lgre dcoupe acute under the strings to facilitate the slap, but since I am not specialist in the style, I would not know if the game was easy, but hey, I guess so.

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.


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 ...


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.

bloodsugar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EDB600
- 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


- 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)


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.


- 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")
