see previous opinion (that said the low on the picture is not good that is a passive!)
Surprisingly pleasant handle end and a 5-string
very easy to play (a little hard slap because strings close enough but with practice it happens all)
low very light. Why do you one must be a low heavy to be good? The sound is not fawn all the resonance of the body (in general on any instrument "solid body" resonance is close to zero are the pickups, electronics and of course the strings that make the sound)
You can find the sound that we should grace the equalization
very versatile, this bass should almost all styles (the funky slappeur fools will blame the key glue that absorbs hits)
I have 5 years and have never had a problem, however I am rather guitarist, the bass is my hobby (pun 10 cents)
I had the opportunity to try other basses but no other 5 strings and no active
For the price it is hard to beat I certainly would do that choice unless you have triple the budget

Korean bass, 5 string active: the synthesis of the V and A of the same brand.
Channel 24 boxes screwed to the body by 4 large screws, rosewood fingerboard, it is wider in the treble, and already quite large due regard to the 5 string. Easel with adjustable height and length of each string.
Two microphones + active equalizer. 4 knobs, a blend of two tone and one volume. Using a little tricky, but in return a lot of possibilities.
Quite elegantly, the knobs and pickups coming straight style mahogany wood, no visible skid plate. In fact, she is back, next to the battery housing. In return, she is in a black plastic scratches easily.
Seeing as this, it seems that the mahogany body is not really wood, but a synthetic material, this must be due to the varnish, but perhaps this feeling of lightness when bizarre takes: a bass, especially a 5 string, it must be heavy, right? But the screw holes for the handle clearly show a red wood, not a synthetic material.
9V battery in a compartment on the back that unscrews. Beware didn't leave it on the jack when not in use, I bet it depletes the battery.
The handle is nice, despite its breadth. It glides well and after setting the store, the affected is very easy for a beginner bass guitar after X years.
Easy access to acute, with the recess of the body, but the delicate strings because the neck widens at this level.
Weight, shape: With 5 large metal mechanics, the head tends to dive a little, especially as the body is a bit "small" compared, and light compared to other basses I know.
In return, you can wear without fatigue long enough.
For sound, I think he must look a little, there are many possibilities, ranging from solid metal tweeters for big bass, with Equalization and two microphones unmarked, and the thick rope IS serious.
I enjoy searching for "the" sound, but in fact, when we understand the handling of pots, it goes fast enough to try different types of sound.
Sometimes I want to add a piezo pickup, to listen to the wood and the body of the bass. This should be possible by the shield back.
I played with a Toneport and simulations, to record on computer or on a Fender Rumble 100tm. I admit that the simulations Toneport sound better than the Rumble, not accurate enough for this low. It can really have a side full of sharp metal, or otherwise very deep bass. I like everything.
I like the alliance of the SI with the versatility serious "active", you can really do anything with this bass, it is more fair (!), Enjoyable to play.
Obviously with € 2,000 we must do better, but at this price?
I've had a year now, I tried several basses, watched the ads, and finally I made the seller play because I just started low, at the time of purchase.
The +: report qualité-possibilités/prix, unbeatable so far I think.
The -: If they were selling € 800 with a crocodile-skin suitcase, they would be a misfortune! No, actually, just the balance and sense of lightness that sometimes makes me uncomfortable, and the impression of "summary" instead of mahogany.
