King Loudness's review"Meh..."

Schecter Demon-7
The Schecter Demon 7 is another one of those guitars that is geared towards the budget minded player who wants to get into a seven string guitar without putting out a whole lot of cash. It's got the same vibe to it as many of their higher end guitars like the C-7, but it comes in at a lower price point. It features a basswood body, a maple neck with rosewood fretboard and 24 frets, sealed tuners, string through body construction and a pair of Seymour Duncan Designed active humbuckers.

UTILIZATION

The design of the Schecter Demon 7 is reasonably ergonomic. It's not quite as light or sleek as a similar model Ibanez 7 but considering the design it's not too bad. The weight is a little bit heavier than I might like, but it does provide a thicker tone with the added mass as well. The shape is not my favourite in the world, but I can live with it. An added upside is that the neck is a little bit thicker than an Ibanez, which makes chord work a fair bit easier (I'm not the hugest fan of Wizard necks). The upper fret access is reasonable on this guitar, though the neck heel is a bit blocky and the cutaways don't quite allow you to get to the 24th fret as easy as an Ibanez would.

SOUNDS

The guitar's tone plugged in really wasn't anything to write home about overall. I do think the stock pickups in this guitar are better than whatever Ibanez uses in theirs, but they are still no match for a good set of DiMarzio or real Seymour Duncan pickups. This guitar had the typical problem that I've found with most budget seven strings in that it sounded fairly muddy with high gain at low volumes. Also with this guitar you don't get any of the cool chiming split type sounds that work so well for extended chords. The guitar just didn't have any sparkle or life to it with the stock pickups and the muddiness factor is another problem I had too.

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I wasn't really impressed with this guitar. I bought it used from Long and McQuade for $250 and took it back a week later. I might've gotten a dud but mine was really badly put together... the tuners would slip constantly on the lower strings, the electronics would crackle and buzz and the feel of the guitar just didn't work for me. If I had to do this all over again, I'd sooner pick up an Ibanez RG7321 because they just seem to sound and feel better in that price point.

jo.Gwaremm's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great place to start 7-string"

Schecter Demon-7
I do not go over the features, see below.

UTILIZATION

first grip very good, I had no trouble getting used to, though this is my first 7 string.

The weight did not bother me more than that, a pretty good wide strap and go.

Sound: from my first record, I was disappointed, I found the HB-105 a bit messy (I do not play in bridge position). I did change a Seymour Active Blackout AHB-1 and now I'm very happy. For the game against the clear by, you really turn down the volume of the microphone to make it very clean but I took it to the metal so it does not bother me.

SOUNDS

I play folk metal, it is plugged into a Peavey JSX 120w with OUR dbkiller MK2 between the head and the cabinet and I get a big fat sound as I like, even leaving the knobs to 12.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had two months, this is the only model 7-string I've tried but not the first guitar with active pickups (I tried with the famous pair EMG 81/85 but I wanted something different ).

the price / quality ratio is very good, no doubt I would do this choice, but if I had a larger budget, I orienterai closer to Blackjack ATX C7 (fitted as standard with the AHB-1)

marah.lathes's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Kiff of my time!"

Schecter Demon-7
Made in China seems to confirm ...

Fixed bridge with string through.

Channel referred maple with a rosewood fingerboard, fitted with 24 X-jumbo frets and a pitch of 673mm.

Duncan Designed pickups assets.

Two knobs settings (volume and tone) and a 3-position selector.

A note on the aspect that we do not necessarily see the pictures on the websites, the guitar is adorned with a "binding edging" yellow farting that impresses! Seen as he takes on the official website of the brand. I did not pay attention to the order, I was surprised and pleased at the reception!

UTILIZATION

The sensations on the handle are very nice, from the grip of the guitar.

While we're on the 7-string, but nothing really unsettling. There are classical guitars 6 strings which are much less fun to play!

Many find it a bit too heavy, Me, I have not found. We immediately feel like a "real" guitar in his hands, is quite impressive.

Classic ergonomics = no risk taking on comfort, so good!

Access to acute is a little embarrassed by the heel of the bolt-on neck, but nothing serious.

The active pickups are pretty good quality, can be do they lack a bit of accuracy, but at this price point, there is a more than correct violin, so there is no reason to change them later.

SOUNDS

I bought a 7 string entry level to start a little prog metal, djent and company.

And for now, it fills me. Even clean, it defends itself! (I play a lot of cubase and guitar rig ...)

I work from time to time on a Roland Cube, again, I think it did not go too badly! For this price, it is more than reasonable!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month, and day. I think it's great!

This is a great compromise for me to start in the world of seven strings.

Inexpensive and relatively well done and true to what it refers visually.

The tuning hardly move, which I thought would change the Mecha pronto, no problem!

I do not have much recoil did not try other 7-string guitars, but if you want to venture into, go try, you could be confident like me.

"With experience, you do again this choice? ..." Ahaha! No worries, to be honest, I have already booked her big sister, the Demon 8 this summer ... :)

Schecter Demon-7
Crafed in china

Basswood body

Channel saddle, rosewood fingerboard, 24 XJ frets

Repres key inlays Black Pearl Gothic Cross "

Pickups 2 Duncan Design Active HB-105 7 string

Contrl 1Volume, 1 Ring slecteur 3 positions

TOM tailpiece with Stop Bar

Marine hardware "Distressed Silver.

UTILIZATION

Handle very pleasant, very surprised I t, a real highway, the adaptation is almost immediatly!
CASC acute thanks to the shape of the guitar is very easy ..!

Level impeccable shape, a little flat for the weight because I find it a bit heavy, but does not reign in playing comfort

With the active pickups like those, and provided you do not have a small amp (I play on a line 6 spider 3 75W) AWARDED ON ITS TERRIBLE!

It sounds really good, especially for the metal! is a principal characteristics and what attracted me ...

SOUNDS

I play metal, and with duncan designed active micro ... perfect!

I play mainly bridge pickup, which sounds perfectly, the neck pickup is nice too ...

This guitar is obviously not destined to play for a acoustik is that you will not render extraordinary, but you question your big roff served!

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar is absolutely perfect for those who want big sound

The price quality ratio is great, it's almost the price given for this ....
