MGR/Jonathan Layne's review"Washburn XB-400"

Washburn XB400
I bough this bass at a local music shop to upgrade from a Peavey Patriot, I paid US$270
and I really believe it is worth every penny

For starters I love the red see through finish, the neck hasnt warped or moved in the 3 years I have been playing it

The electronics are not very good, about a month after I bought it they sounded crackly, but I got that fixed. But you dont have much good tonal variation, you have a really nice deep sound and when you try to ged a little more mids, you end up getting way too much trebble

The construccion is really sturdy, like I said have been using it for about 3 years and it has held up playing gigs every week.

I believe it is the most reliable bass in its category.

In which country she does doing? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
I need regular.
- How many frets, what kind of microphone and their configuration?
- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
- What are the rglages (volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?
- What type of race?


Is the handle enjoyable?
a treat (after three days of rglages !!!)

- The access to acute (desti- nations most recently freight) is it easy?
This is not a bass solo but very comfortable in the fast phras

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
a hair too heavy but very equilibrbr />
- Gets it easy to sound good ...?

simply yes (well that's another thing)


- Appropriate your style of music?

With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Hartke head + cabinet + combo old record with 400 hp Celestion (a marvel)

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "fat", ....)
pretty decent but the bass will undergo a radical intervention (installation + micro electro CREL)

- What are you sonorits prfrez, you dtestez?
near victor victor bailey and wooten
but we are happy with what we have !!!


How long have you use it

very short time
before I was playing on a Larrive db2 / a various esh / Ergodyne 700 /
this bass is awesome once rgle slap and fusion game.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The +: the balance gnl.la finish this versatile little gamme.le its origin, but with its own character.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

yes I wanted a low inexpensive and robust day at home (pure son)
after having tried gl tribute a4 and b4 + + Cort Ibanez btb ...
I'm falling in love with the gl but a week after the xb400 cross my path and bingo !!!

- How do you report qualitprix?

buy 150 and yes the bowl !!!
in a near state of new
this bass is equivalent to pr-cits instruments by far (all depends on his style)

With experience, you do again this choice? ..

Yes !!!!
and quickly
but I ordered a pair of micro crel to the beast ... so follow ...

Washburn XB400
Bantam XB series
Active bass made in Korea, the mid-90s.
4 strings
24 frets
2 microphones Washburn Humbuckers series WB940
Maple neck
Alder body
4 settings (low, acute, volume, volume balance between the pickups)
We feel the quality.


This is a low light with a long handle end.
It is easy, fun to play.
It does not quickly disrupts what is really a nice surprise.
Very suitable for fast gaming.
However I occasionally occur on the micro tape when I play. Should be noted that I do the strings for more distance between the strings and the pickups.


Thanks to its wide range of settings, we can already travel in a wide range of sounds.
It has fishing and nature in its innocent.
Can get a round and warm like climbing in acute and dry.


I have the XB400NM (Natural Matte).
This is the kind of bass you would bet that not one euro and yet it is an outsider.
Beautiful aesthetic, balanced, fun to watch.

Already said


The handle fits me perfectly, fast and precise.
access to acute nikel, but it is true that for the ring, sometimes it's easy ps!
you can get good sound, but on some frets ca vibrates, I did settle, but it makes me always does a little bit, but that consensus on the amp so it goes.
she goes to slap my bass teacher (who sold it to me) is trying to buy me every time that I was ready!


No style of music, but it's going for just about everything.
I use a Fender Rumble 100.


It is not far off a year that I have now.
I like its shape, and this is my first bass so between us There's a great story!
is one of the only models I had the opportunity to try up to now.
quality price ratio, bah ca depends how much you offer me, I bought 150 of OCCAZ PRAF and is in condition, I did a wholesale business mga!
Not a fault, I made the right choice, and if you must, I do it again!
