Cort NA5
_Manche Conductor 5 folds (maple / wenge / maple / wenge / maple)
_Touche Rosewood 24 cases
_ "Wings" solid maple body ond (apparently amazingly beautiful!)
_2 Pickups Bartolini MK1
_1 Volume / pan microphones 1 / equalizer 3 band active
_switch bypass equalizer

A high quality violin for a low Corenne origin, woods and finishes promising, microphones that no longer prove themselves in addition to a very reasonable price (even better in Cygnus) ... 10!


The NA5 is a modern low believes to be comfortable. The contours and curves of the body is very avrent agrables both sitting and standing game. Once the shoulder strap on the instrument is quite lightweight and well balanced. The access to acute is easy and pleasant, the profile neck heel facilitates top handle game ...
I usually play on precision bass 4 strings dj rpute to have a larger space between strings that her sister the jazz bass, then the fact to take a 5 string not reassured me right result .dropoff window After a few moments and radaptant the attack on the right hand on the 5th string, this low turns very pleasant to play. I tried in a music store, stores in DPOT sales. The model was 2 years old and had aged very well (level assemblies, nothing wrong).
Its satin lacquer body provides a very comfortable apprciable. 10.


Sound medium East, of which bartolini well express the character of violin making and playing bass player and a very effective bass equalizer make this an excellent instrument, rather even when modern.
SI string sounds great without exceptional be; same amount in the treble on that string, it retains a character diffrent other 4, Gnant enough because it becomes difficult to keep tural cohrence in a bass line relatively " front "In accompaniment, playing the equalizer, it will default attnue. This may be of a set of quality Pulling strings (the game was only a few days).
The electronic loads is very versatile and effective for versatility -almost- any evidence. rel character of the bass is expressed prampli dsactiv: the sound is good, expressive, mid east, wood ... and the presence of the active prampli can correct small defects of the beautiful, if you ever get tired come in.
Note also that even when the sound is quite aggressive and slamming the top of the spectrum, but the equalizer corrects a knob tower 20th this problem.

Note that the souligns defects are far from making a bad bass, that's just my opinion, the teacher just a few points, but nothing thanks to the active Pramp irretrievable.

Go 9 for the lack of cohrence SI and the somewhat too slamming sound.


An excellent instrument, beautiful, simple, lightweight, versatile and versatile. The NA5 possde affirmed a character but she did not blush with more expensive models of competition. The new model of NA5 possde a body "sandwich" maple / mahogany / maple that gives it a deeper and less slamming, a little lower midrange. Of taste, try.
Compare my Precision, and in view of the grain difference, I feel I'll crack ...

Cort NA5
Very nice bass (natural version for me) korea.
Pro easel, mechanical as well.

Otherwise active bass with EQ Barto MK1 pickups, the serious (see description specified in the notices on the Cort A5 relating to certain NA5)

Work violin remarkable run driver rounded the box, not heavy and well balanced. Channel a bit narrower than other 5-string but not blocking because it forces them to be more specific in his game and it's worth it. At the finish, I now like the slap 4 strings without problems.


The handle is really REAL! fast, not tiring, real rolls!
My other bass (Yamaha BB2000 4 String) already had a round of crazy (according to all guitarists who have tried it

With NA5 is strictly the same level! (Well above the low bcp best known and most expensive I've also tried ...) This race is the driver, I found a very very long sustain

Access to acute quite correct

Very effective and simple ergonomics. not so heavy, rounded shape worked with very well finished. Once again it looks like a bass luthier.
For good sound, there are many: knob low, mid, treble, balance pickups, master volume and a switch to bypass the equalizer while remaining an active bass. Handy if like me you use a DI box with correction.


Back to sounds: it is modern looking so do the grain of accuracy or Jazzbass. As against the music I play (jazz fusion, world style Zawinul, groove in the spirit of Bona R) it is a hit! it is ideal for what I play. The so serious sounds good with an amp worthy of the name and microphones Barto transcribe your game exactly the rotten game will net game and very crisp dynamique.J uses it often in my game of ghost notes and there it goes alone .

I now play on a Mark bass Little Mark II EDEN NEMESIS 4X10 cabinet and a compressor / limiter Tube Compressor ART in the chain. It's just a killing!

I like medium settings with a little digging and a fever present. easy with NA5. Otherwise, I rediscovered the use of micro serious funk sound very 70's. With the dynamics and more.

Tip if you want more "grain" just: turn on the lights of the box simulator Hartke VXL (without all need turn on the part equalization). With a small set of harmonics, you will find a grain style fender! I took the test with an accuracy and NA5 + VXL.


I use this bass for 1 year.

Before investing, I read a lot of opinions on the net (U.S. server). I also tried the version 4 strings to get an idea of ​​the violin and electronics and the Fender Marcus Miller 5 string, yamaha qq, Warwick and others ... NA5 of violin making is largely at this level again with a fantastic round (to play fast and well)

The price / quality ratio is incredible. From my point of view, it should cost more expensive bcp (bass level of € 2000 ...). And in addition it is simple and beautiful!

The only downside is a small pb I had with the electronic module whose son was not well welded contacts or false. I dismounted and I repaired with my soldering iron. Since everything runs

After all that, I do it again exactly the same choice. Come join the club of admirers of NA5 totalemennt justified because it is!
