« Incredible! »

Publié le 10/13/10 à 12:19
Made in USA (U.S. ah finish!)
The bridge is a standard Fender type, but very good ...
She made 21 fret: just like the Fender ...

Woods: No idea!
What I feel is of solid construction. We feel that the handle is rigid, the body seems very solid. The kind of low "Bulldozer" indestructible ...
The overall quality feels very serious!

For the microphone, we enter the heart of the matter: as a microphone placed on the music man. The particularity of this microphone is that it is curved! In fact it follows the profile of the handle ... So that each string is equidistant from the microphone! Level sound setting, it is a joy! In general, do not curl the strings and the D, one is forced to rise relative to mid and soil. So that the highest and D are from the microphones ... But here, the strings and the D are the same distance as the other two! Result: a consistent sound on all the strings! Brilliant, clever, simple!

For settings: With three buttons! The volume, a knob for treble (0 position and power, and boost (adjustable via potentiometer) and a knob for treble (like bass). The advantage: you do not spend three hours to find the settings or her!

Mechanics: Reverse standard, classic but really stable!

It is an active bass with two 9 V batteries who put themselves inside a hatch at the rear of the body ...

For the config, it is between a jazz bass (two pickups and a tone) and a Fodera with 25 adjustable knobs ... Simply put: we have what it takes to play bass! No need to be ^ ^ engineer to adjust the sound you want!

UTILIZATION

The handle: at nut, it is 41 mm (as a PBass). The neck seems indeed quite broad. However after a few minutes, you feel super comfortable! Damn, I have always found the sleeves of Precision broad, yet on that one, it was a crazy skill ... Is this due to the design of the handle? wood used? I do not know! What I know is that it is purely awesome!

For acute: Access is facilitated by a report JBass. With the horn being blocked, the body design will descend at the 20th fret on the G string without worries ... It changes! lol!

Ergonomics: smaller than a Jazz bass, weighing a little over 4 kg (due to wood density seems it ...). on the other hand, it is very well balanced: when you put your left hand at the end of the handle at the lower horn, the bass does not lean the head forward! Very well balanced indeed! Rare to be stressed ...
Note the position of the microphone:; in the middle! Ideal for playing in walking, slapper, just in the bridge position ... We can ask the thumb as you want!

In short, a bass that looks like a lot of bass. But I think she looks like a Music Man with his big central block.

SOUNDS

Well let&#39;s get serious!
Ben at the same time is what counts above all an instrument for ...
How to say ... GENIAL! Simply amazing ...
Position "0" bass and treble: it has its Precision and Jazz bass mixed with a touch of Stingray ... It is rather odd! It brings a lot of classic sounds, but with its own personality! It&#39;s quite strange ... It has its own "sound", while being easily versatile: Rare!

If you push the bass was a full sound, perfect for variety, full of sounds serious ... what If you cut the bass, you push the treble, the sound was very "crystalline" typed metal, raw rock, ideal for playing with a pick ...
In neutral position: the big sound, but versatile! In fact the bass goes active! There&#39;s ears and attention! It&#39;s mind-blowing! If you normally set your amp on 8 / 10 with a passive, you are forced to decrease to 4 or 5 / 10 to do everything to avoid farting !!!.. And then there is still half a volume pot on each frequency! This has really incredibly low in the belly!
For the game at your fingers: ideal! Slap on: it does well (especially with a low action!). Of course the width of the handle a little more pull on the handle of a JB, but otherwise, RAS, it sends! The slap is a pleasure to "fishing ".... You start the thumb, and then claps! Yeah!

Picking: very very good ...

Small feature: this bass to sustain and harmonics sick ...
Basically, you play an open note, you have the time to drink coffee before it was silent (but what is this wood ???)... and these harmonics! When we play, we can hear much better than lots of bass! Crazy ...

To whom it is addressed: I would say especially rock fans (she sends wood!) But it is really extra in jazz (playing a walking is soft, flexible, soft and powerful ... ) as slap, picking, etc. ...
In short: any bass player who wants a crazy low for 3 to nothing!

on the other hand, it&#39;s a low "men". It&#39;s hard to explain ... But hand it is very rigid, hard ... It is powerful, raw and flexible AC starts like clockwork ... So it&#39;s a bit like a Porsche, you have to learn to drive before putting his paws on this gem ... And especially with the microphone and electronics, better to avoid the breads!

OVERALL OPINION

I&#39;ve had two days I am in heaven! After some adjustments in the receiving, I found nirvana bass players ...

Bass I&#39;ve had plenty: a Music Man, a Marcus Miller, PBass, jazz bass, a Mayones, a Yamaha, a Cort Artisan, etc. ... In short, a low total score ... I can say is the best coffee I had in hand! I&#39;m not ready to let go ... It has been two days and I never left her! My jazz bass and my yam may remain in their cases a good time ...
The feature I like most: it is "unique" quasi found (thank you to Alex in passing!), Replaces any bass on the market (of course this is not a low-typed as a vintage Jazz Bass 73, but it is much easier to use in lots of styles !)... The look (it looks like a music man), sound (full happiness! Which foot !!!)...

Of course I would do the same choice! that&#39;s obvious ... And rather than sell my car to separate myself (if I were hard up)!
value for money! INDECENT! We can not imagine an American bass, also a top price so ridiculous! It is worth ten times the price I paid ...
