Manufactured Core (South prsume I)
5-string bass, 24 cases.
- Microphones DXP-MB5 + DXP-MN
- Equaliser Vari-Mid 3B
- Nickel hardware satinbr /> - Basswood body and maple walnut table
- Maple Table marbrbr /> - Rosewood
Two colors available: orange or black says "transaparent" (a kind of purple ...)
String of origin: Elixir
Only complaint: the color choice is not wide ...


The handle is very pleasant for the game, very soft, fingers glide perfectly. But it really is very wide (and the strings are really very Paisses, which makes it difficult game the First grip, but it is a 5 string, you should know what we want ...)
The access to acute is rather ais but remember that there are 24 well-espacs boxes ... so in the end stick notes on or before Last Last notes are sometimes difficult to get.
The shape is rather pretty, not too aggressive to be. The weight is well distributed rather, the bass does not swing a cot or another (as long as the maintenance of course ... but it does not tange forward or toward 'rear match). Its weight is suitable, it is neither lightweight nor heavy (I admit I already encountered the bass lgres) and we do not sincerely too much attention to all cot the qualities that Recelle as softness ...
The desired sound is easily obtained on the coffee she even found a Gnral tuning, bass, treble, middle and another quite complex adjustment which manages the frequencies of the middle (middle ), a very interesting rglage sometimes to even get a sound "wah wah".

NB: This bass works with 9V batteries that sometimes change (very simple change, we must unscrew and replace the batteries behind ...), I admit I was surprised the first time : in fact I got a very bad sound, a "ptait" ...


With this bass I t tonemment surprised ... I can get clean sounds like 60s or fatty sounds Mtal type. My amp is a Hartke Kickback 12, I play in a group at Mtal (style In Flames) and punk / rock (style Green day) and in all cases I get to his near-perfect and very large ... on this map is almost irreproachable for a bass that price (I bought mine ... 640). Also apprcieras strings, which offers a very pleasant sound rather base metal (with the settings you can do it disappear course ...) that really pleased me.


I, unwanted BTB405q since the December 2004 and I really am entirely satisfied with my purchase!
I love the rglage the middle frequencies, which offers a variety of his jokes. Personally I really like ca form nor too traditional or too weird. The only complaint I could make would be in terms of colors ... mine is orange, and the other choice and a kind of violet (love it or not ...) we could have esprer of others ...
I have tried various 5-string bass before my purchase, gsr 205, a corte C5q and brand Aurre I can not remember I liked but it was 800, personally it is the Ibanez me the more seduced, she's really very sweet to use (this is awesome, I did not find it in other models tests)
The price quality ratio is very good. To display a low around 600 euros, you get a high-end product with a sound and a more than satifaisante finish. A real bohneur this price!
I do not regret my choice. I confess to not having compar masses with other brands, but the first time I played it in the store I t seduced.

In short, a very good product which one attaches very quickly, you now know what's left to do ...

NB: for the overall opinion, I glad to average 3 ratings ... there is no blame me "cheat" ... if I had really put my opinion, I would have obt for 10 (sentimental value ...)
