kelt620's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A bass that is worth its price!"

Jack & Danny PBJ
Origin China, hooped round unvarnished, not too thin but enjoyable to play, (close enough of a handle allpart in appearance, 21 frets, (a bit rude but quite properly filed down on the edge of the key that is made of ebony , width of 41 mm nut, adjustable truss road in mind, a micro bp, jb a microphone, a switch for switching the pickups, one volume, one tone.
At the low réceptionn everything is ok but you have to fix everything, the finish is very good, the adjustments are very precise, the 3-ply pickguard is worth mentioning here, the microphones of unknown origin, have a high output, but of course, as with any bass in this price variety of business, they are desperately short of mediums, néammoins work on the equalization allows the end to get a sound much better than what you may have with other low of around € 150, the switch to switch the microphone is very poor and will change rapidly as the tone capacitor, the knobs crackle a bit, (but for me it is nothing dramatic) the micro bp sends bass very heavy while the jb fulfills its role with a little grain of the famous da jb, (but as said above there's always this lack of clarity in the midrange), switching the switch has 3 sounds distinct
The tuners are good bills, on 4, a force a little, (need breaking-in?), The bridge is quite classic and pretty cheap, at the table in alder, no complaints, the assembly three parts is very discreet, the varnish has no blemishes.
The bass is fully disposed to its reception, attack and intonation.
For the attack, she was once given some 4 mm, the bridges were too high, the intonations were distorting, after adjusting fast enough, the attack has fallen to 2 mm in the 12 th cargo without borders which is the sign of good planning of the handle, to note that in this case the bridge of the E string is at the grass roots and can not be lowered, intonation set, the bass sounds perfectly fair, although the saddle already adjusted (that too is rare, deserves a little retouching to lower the strings a bit, but originally the setting is already very honest, so that's a very good point for the handle that allows a very low attack without borders and without needing heel wedges for adjustment.

UTILIZATION

No problem adapting to handle, even if it is a bit thick, the game is enjoyable, the ergonomics of the table offers impeccable comfort, the weight of the low is around 3.8 kgs.
To the sound of course nothing transcendent, but in this price range do not dream, the massive table in alder offers a range of sounds, however, better than other basses (many in this price range, plywood, and are to flee in my opinion)

SOUNDS

I play essentiellemnt fingers in the bridge position, very ready for it,
but the advanced settings for indoors are often the same: correction on the bass, volume up, correcting tone knob turned all the way into the grave and brought back to the treble until you hear the filtering capacitor begin to roll .
Amplification: BBE preamp knob all at noon except medium-bottomed, tube amp bass dynaccord king, while at noon, 2X10 GK cab

OVERALL OPINION

Gained today I bought this bass to continue working when I'm on vacation, far from home, tent, (my other low value well above that can not be trimballées anywhere)
Strengths: very decent handle, allowing a very low attack, almost flawless finish.

weaknesses: the switch really not that great, the pickups, the beginner will need to set the instrument to a luthier, (but this is often not the case for how low imorte purchased via the internet).

Value for price: € 119 delivered, it is improper to pass judgment!, In terms of finish, fit, it is much more expensive bass certainly.
