Body Agathis NECK (low in a single piece of wood)
24 frets rosewood.
2 EMG-HZ pickups (passive).
3-band EQ (low, middle, high) EMG B-64 (active).
Bridge and a mechanical oil bath ESP.
1volume, 1selecteur 3 positions.
Channel pleasant enough but a bit thick, it needs to be done but once done, the handle is comfortable.
Access to acute very easy, the shape of the hand fits ideally in the form of expression in this size mache optics.
Very good ergonomics, body pleasant but difficult to bring the high-low long-term.
It is perfect for my style, I play metal and I find it very easy to get a sound that suits me.
I play on a Hartke Kickback 15 combo, 120W RMS and a pedal PREAM / DI Hartke. J'obtient The sound is really convenient and low thanks to the active EQ is a high output.
J'obtient a sound with a lot of grain thanks to the pedal and by highlighting the serious bass. But the sound can be very net and slamming through a little low, low middle and a lot of treble. I find microphones that are versatile enough but that would go active EMG pickups on this bass mienux.
I use it for about a month.
I love the neck through the body and passing through the body, it gives really feel the bass vibrate each note which is very pleasant. The sound is very decent considering the price and physical appearance is really great I think the violin and the finish is more than perfect for this price range.
I think with the same capital (700 at the time), I do it again the same choice as any bass in this price range do not believe me (except ROCKBASS) but with more capital, I m ' referrals to higher-end models ESP-LTD (signature or B-404) or to the Warwick (a Thumb).
