It's a plane. Super simple to play.
24 cases with acute ACCS impeccable.
Outstanding ergonomics, the design is doing by BMW. We like it or not but it is enjoyable to wear.
SOUND !!!!!! It's Music Man in all its glory, two microphones with a lot of super precise roundness, and the possibility to mix the two mics rglages. Nothing said is probably low in the most versatile Music Man (Rock, Funck, Bossa, Jazz, Metal ...)


The bongo combined with an Ampeg head transistor (B2) is madness!
Trs an answer fast with big bass that does not drool.
Whether it's at mdiator finger, tapping in the slap this bass fits relement well.

After a few try's house, it took me all of 15 mins break for big sound. Both composed of rock that jam on the slap sound is pure. I board not even taking low compress it blends perfectly into my dja mix. Sincerely I do not regret this purchase at this time no visible default.


I for a week, and I do not couraging my chance. For me it is really beautiful and I always come back no sound!!
Music man it's expensive, but it's good. No pb I would do the same choice.
