DNG Custom 5 StringsPublished on 02/19/05 at 06:02
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made by three-makers working together: one is in charge of the woods (the acoustic side) and one of varnish (no one would believe how much it counts), the third of electronics. Everyone is at the top in its field. I was in contact with them for two guitars, bass and the younger one, and I can tell you they are both technical and human resources.
-24 Frets. Two pickups with EMG preamp.
Three knobs-EQ: low, med, sharp. A report that the medium has an additional adjustment ring that turns it into semi-parametric equalizer. That's because having a nice medium to low, it's hard.
A knob-balance between the two microphones.

The settings are very progressive, net, for, which means you get any sound from the bass, without having to return to the amp.

UTILIZATION

Everything is easy-on sleeve. As pro classical musician, I used to sound super clean and defined. The luthier I set the strings closer to the button, so that the groove is very flexible, a little animal, and it does not frieze. It's easier than on a nylon guitar.
Like his, we get what we can get.

SOUNDS

I tried a few all styles, with a preference for funk and Latin funk. Slap his or large fingers, it works.
"I played avecun big Trace Elliot combo (tube preamp), a small Gallien-krueger.
- In general, I like all the bass sounds possible, as long as the bass player knows his stuff.
DNG-on, one of three luthiersne handles as wood, and it has strangely. So, even unplugged, the bass has a great acoustic sound, with already the length of its grain and a beautiful (it's better than snoring like jazz-bass factory, it sings a little harsh). From there, it has nothing but great sound when amplified.

OVERALL OPINION

I rarely used because I fell in classical guitar and I can do one thing well at a time.
A special mention for the varnish: when seen, it seems to go into the wood of the bass.
Before, I had a 5 string Neuser for fingers and a German super-light, nervous, composite, for the slap.
Before going to DNG, I tried everything you may find of top stores.
Whether to re-sign, it would DNG, no doubt.
I have pictures high def. I send them by mail upon request.
