UTILIZATION

First, the PSE 4.250 kg, there must be more lightweight, but as it is very well balance with his belt, and thanks the rear of his body trs dig it enjoyable to wear, even several hours.

The strings supplied are 45-105 GHS boomer, I quickly made the change to the nickel roundwound Rotosound RB 40-100. SETTING THE The base of the handle is very well done and the action of the strings RULES low.

Thanks to the bridge I was able to cover the strings to get between an axis (of the grave to acute) of 17mm, 18mm and 19mm 24th of cargo, ideal for slap. Can still be the space of MI LA but really could happen at the edge suprieur freight.

The key is relatively flat and wide which makes the game tapping. This is a "highway".

The sound is really playing with the knobs and switch: it is not at all a low that tests all through the bottom!

The reading is extremely powerful Agilar, both in cut than boost. The switch for medium to switch the game to the finger (boost 800Hz) to slap (boost 400Hz) easily, it is enjoyable.
For each piece, I note my configuration (switch, cut / boost, balance) that best fits.


It takes time to find his sound.

The sound passes through the mix well trs and RPET (10 5% boost on all EQ), so that slap on the fingers, thanks to mdium well rendered, trs's a net on all frequencies. The tapping means trs well, it sounds good without being aggressive in the treble.

The type of his fingers dpend of the attack: one passes easily from his plutt "smooth" sound type Red Hot trs aggressive. The sustain is good.

An advantage of this low standard to me: the level of output string LA and RE is not lower than the MI, the LA is even more powerful. Trs is important for the quality of the recordings, avoid peak serious slap on the MI and to hear the slap on the dash to LA shuffled in RE (a little strong) and SOL.

The quality of stringed instruments and accessories is nickel (Straplock, fly box, key) finally worthy of the price of the instrument, unlike many "brands".

SOUNDS

With this bass, which ton is the versatility it can play both the funk, as mtal or jazz and pop: anything goes, just grate the switch (especially of medium), the knobs and the attack of the strings. It plutt directs them to a low mdiums.

Involved in the finger, thumb arises trs well on countrv Bartolini. The white on the back edge of the black button to see bne trs well.

The slap is a joy, both in sound (I go through a peavey head lamp TMAX) and the ease of play (cart ropes, pulling 40-100). Bne key gives a coloring of its particulire, the samples found on the site of the lower Warrior, choosing woods like:

go to "Listening Room, in the config Neck-Through ( http://www.warriorinstruments.com/ )

or at Shucker ( http://www.shukerguitars.co.uk/sound.htm )

I have yet to get a russi the Marcus JB style that requires a key stocky, but his slap a plutt "mdium" not at all aggressive, very enjoyable and the ear.

The game is very easy tapping by the fact that the strings are quite space both below than above the neck.

I put 9, not 10, because I have AIM even more "growl", type WW. Otherwise the rest is really excellent! Nanmoins, attention, even when a trs sounds good and is easy to mix: a direct sample pti cul PC ( http://jeanmarc.deniel.free.fr/donnees/Mayones/son_doigts.mp3 ) with reverb and amp simulator lgre.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 weeks.

I particulirement will appreciate the finish, the offer complte, the quality of its nickel, the versatility of crazy, the comfort of game (especially slap).

AIM I have a little more "growl" but has, it would probably more exotic woods.

Before that, I possd a Status Energy, and I have tried many brands (Fender, WW, Yamaha ...). None of the brand comes close, even from afar, the report qualitprix this low: for a price of commencement of high-end SERIES, we have a true and beautiful work (quality of luthier.

With exprience, I can only say that I would do this choice! I think for me to have (almost to growl) finds the bass I was looking for for years.
