5 string active bass
24 frets
NECK
Brass nut
Bartolini MK1 pickups
beautiful wood (sic): african wenge (?) + Maple

SETTINGS:
- A switch active / passive (eq on / off)
- 1 volume
- 3 eq: low / medium / high
- A micro drive

UTILIZATION

The handle is comfortable, much narrower than Jazzbass example.
It is particulirement enjoyable to play, and remember that this is a 5-string!
5 string that sounds good, which is quite rare in this price range.

The (too) many rglages can use versatile enough to bte. The switch mode eq on / off can be very useful, or how to pass in a split second of a metallic sound (when the active eq are pushed to the bottom) a well round.

Think well to beef up the shoulders, the cort is actually quite heavy.

SOUNDS

I play with in a progressive rock band. It's perfect.
I use it for projects also characters in tones more minimalist.

It is a branch Hartke 350W (head lamps and transistor; hp 4 * 10 + 1 * 15). It simply becomes a weapon of mass destruction.

In assets, we get very easy to slap sounds decent even when it has never done, which is my case.
This bass has held (in effect run through), it sounds at any point.

To make some small rglages beginners to find the correct height of strings, to avoid the curling.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over 2 months.
I like its versatility, its sound, its playability, and and and cum.

I had a dj precisionbass mexico, and I wanted a low of a different caliber. I thought my way more to musicman (sting ray, sub) or Jazzbass us.
I tried all these MODELS and I really cracked by trying the Cort, which I had yet to make an a priori negative.

I bought it for about 750EUR. I did not find MODELS suffering the comparison in this price range.

Although Obviously, this is a MODEL that I recommend.
