6-string bass, made by Cort in Indonesia.
This lower part of the Cort Action Series which happens to be the entry level.
The body is agathis, neck 24 frets is maple, rosewood fingerboard, micro Powersound, active 2-band EQ, chrome hardware.
From the first glance we notice that the bass of "dog."
The curves are refined, the paint is glossy and seems sturdy.
It is very light, especially for a six-string, which is not a bad thing.
However, its lightness is a double-edged sword because the head is heavier than the body looks low and it requires a little force to keep it straight.
However it is much less standing nuisance. But I still board for a ballast weight inside the cavity of the electronic bearing a little to this imbalance, in case follow!
Small thumbs up for adjustment. The bass arrived perfectly set me up with ropes in good condition.
Once in hand, as said above, low slumps. So we'll have a little time to adapt to do. However, the curves are very well studied and even after several hours no discomfort is felt.
For the rest of the handle has a fairly flat radius, it is very easy to play the bass as in the treble.
The pickups are very wide with a small notch (very significant) to squeeze the thumb. We play near the bridge or near the handle the various stunts that I have tried have all gone well.
I also was surprised by the slap game. And despite the addition of two strings, you can easily reach place his fingers.
Regarding the accuracy is relatively fair, I just had to refine some settings, but two or three shots screwdriver and it was done.
The bass sounds relatively empty, we have a good vibration feedback.
Finally, I would say that the violin is generally of good quality instrument for so cheap.
We must remember that we are talking about a 6-string bass, the entry-level models are much more expensive in the competition.
This is the bottom hurts. And yes, that price could not all be perfect.
Be careful though, the sound is far from mediocre. But in comparison to the quality of the violin is one notch below.
But, "chappotant" is still sometimes find her very correct. A sound that lacks character, but will not it be ridiculous to work at home or in rehearsal.
I have not yet had the opportunity to test it live, I will update my review when it's done.
I use it quite extensively for a week and I must conclude that I'm really satisfied with my purchase. Without exception be low, it is a perfect study tool for those who want to try the world of six strings without losing an arm (and yes, after it's harder to play bass !).
At the time I had a Yamaha RBX6JM, John Myung signature model. It was a beautiful bass with good microphones, but it had a defect that was not the little Cort, she weighed two tons, and the curves were, in the long run poorly (torso and legs).
+ The look
+ The overall quality of the violin
-Microphones that could be a bit better.
Finally, since I I'm hooked to it and it will not change.
Even if in the future I think changing the pickups and as said above find a weight for ballast to counteract the imbalance. But I am very satisfied with my purchase!
