Vox Standard BassPublished on 06/23/13 at 05:50
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Japanese low

24 frets

Nice round handle (precision type) and very thick

Body, neck and maple fingerboard.

A micro Di Marzio precision bridge type position.

A volume

A tone (passive)

A phase switch


I made many changes to the bass, and it is now equipped with a second micro Di Marzio precision sleeve type position, I removed the phase switch (which I used to anything) I replaced by a second volume for the microphone. And finally I changed the original bridge for a Schaller.

So my notes do not take into account these changes.

So my notes do not take into account these changes.

UTILIZATION

The handle is enjoyable worse! It is not advisable for small hands, but I have a very good grip on it, access to acute is very easy, the junction body / neck is relatively late.

On the negative side, this bass is heavy. So yes it gives an impression of extreme strength (ie a tank) but after 2/3h it seriously beginning to be felt.
And the original bridge is an eyesore. This is a common piece of folded sheet that pulls the palm of the hand.

SOUNDS

Before change:

A very distinctive sound with a lot of high mids and some bass (a little) to Jaco. The sound is interesting, but definitely not happening everywhere and versatile with a real lack of fat and testicles.

After change:

The addition of the second microphone changes this bass at all. In the neck position only sound was pretty pissed accuracy, closing a little tone we find the typical sound of the details with whatever different. The mix of the two microphones gives his jazz bass on steroids.

It gains in flexibility and becomes much more interesting and typical.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this bass for 7 years and nothing in the world I would separate. Despite his absence she has I do not know what endearing and a sound that brings a touch of originality compared to "standard" low.

Now that she has suffered a lot of changes I could put it notes around 9 or 10.

Nice round handle, micro misplaced

Vox Standard BassPublished on 05/16/11 at 12:13

A good round and round very well beefy. We like it or not.
A body that weighs louuurd ...
A micro misplaced (too near the bridge)
A basic bridge that rips off the palm of the hand
One volume, one tone, a phase switch.

UTILIZATION

Channel and play excellent, being careful not to tear the skin on the bridge.

SOUNDS

The concern is the location of the microphone: Far too close to the bridge, the sound is pretty special.
I dug a router to a more traditional, and there it sounds! Many of attack. A low rock falls in it.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it occasionally. Bought for a pittance and because I love the Vox Custom Bass model.
I prefer the look and sound of the custom, but...…

I prefer the look and sound of the custom, but the handle of the standard is more to my big hand!
Pity we can not transplant the stem of the standard on the Custom ...
