    Samick Tabu Bass Greg Bennett DesignPublished on 08/14/09 at 20:48
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Bass made in Korea by Samick manufactures (who make other well known brands as well) 
    Controls: 4 buttons.
    Volume, Treble, Bass, Balance handle pickups or bridge.
    Active pickups with high output sound
    Channel 24 Boxes

    Body and neck through mahogany.

    UTILIZATION

    The high frets are nice and easy access by means of the neck-through-body design.

    The body has a very particular form somewhat reminiscent of a violin and is ideal for musicians seeking to differentiate themselves from what is usually done.

    Solid construction and a beautiful transparent black finish, a relatively compact size.

    The only downside is the weight but with a good wide strap you can decrease …

    UTILIZATION

    The high frets are nice and easy access by means of the neck-through-body design.

    The body has a very particular form somewhat reminiscent of a violin and is ideal for musicians seeking to differentiate themselves from what is usually done.

    Solid construction and a beautiful transparent black finish, a relatively compact size.

    The only downside is the weight but with a good wide strap you can decrease the pressure, but most basses are heavy anyway.

    The sound is excellent and suits me perfectly. Power and roundness.

    SOUNDS

    Thanks to the active pickups, it has access to a wide palette of sound.

    It suits the style of music I play: rock, reggae, metal.

    I use a Peavey Max 115 amp, but I tried my bass with a Markbass I plan to buy it in a few months.

    The sound is excellent and the active pickups express all their potential on this type of higher-end amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this bass in February 2009, used from a colleague for € 350. It was like new.

    This is rather low, € 600 new. One can hardly do better in terms of value for money.

    I tried Fender Jazz Bass Mexican at 700 € and I much prefer the sound of my Greg Bennett TBB2.

    Before I had a SR300 Ibanez with active pickups, and when I compared the UK with TBB, I was immediately convinced by the sound quality, the output level microphones and potential adjustment.

    It goes without saying that even if I have to change one day, I will keep this bass quite unusual, which I am sure will grow in value over time.

    Greg Bennett, thank you!
