VicMacKey's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez BTB406QM
Made in Korea.
24 frets, Ibanez humbuckers.
Trestle bridges indpendants.
Rglages: volume, balance microphones, boost / cut bass, boost / cut treble, boost / cut range of mediums with frequencies.
Book cover with a real well made Ibanez.


The handle is trs enjoyable for 6 strings. Close to that of a TRB6 (I had an era) and less wide.
Access in acute is easy.
Good ergonomics. The weight is consquent and you can feel on the shoulder APRS 1h or 1h30 of play it does not sting the nose, even sitting.
The sound is good. Finally, it was the sound for the price we pay no more or less, but it is of good quality trs. The SI is correct grave. I am surprised sometimes even to collect compliments the bass sound live or in studio, the musicians I play with, the public, and even the ing his compliments (!!!), I 've never (or very little) before with low priced silent double or triple that this! Like what ...


I bought it for me r-initiate the six strings, as a former owner of Yamaha TRB6 long ago, but I use it often trs trs trs at the moment. This should lower all styles of music, and more particulirement place in the prog rock or jazz fusion, modern music gnral ...
I play with a SWR SM500 or EBS FAFNIR EDEN 410XLT a couple concerts and an EBS Microbass in the studio.
We can get anything you want in terms of sounds this bass, but personally I use trs little electronic instrument, sometimes I just boost the bass or treble to better m ' hear, but I never touch the mdiums because rglage is dlicat. It's going well enough sound roots and prcis Submitted. Frquence a boost too can make it too sharp or mute the sound: in fact the electronic is not the most prcises.
I do not like the sounds too dull or too sharp you can get with this bass. Otherwise it's all good.


I use it for several months.
What I like most: it was worth the money. The violin is nickel. The sound is more than adequate. I particulirement indpendants the bridges, although rsonnances are always friendly Submitted.
I tried the I Myung before buying. The sound is a bit better on Myung, but the weight and ergonomics are crap ... It m'tonnerait that Myung plays (played) on exactly the same as that found MODEL (was) in the store. For a low-killing, just change the pickups on this one (possibly the electronic) and must be nickel.
Report quality price: trs it is good. Honestly for that price you can not esprer best nine.
I sidr when I see the prices of certain instruments in store and the sound comes out. Beware of scams ... but the bass is far from being a scam, far from it.

Ibanez BTB406QM
Made in Korea and bought second hand: the seller could not tell me when she dated precisely but it is no longer available new in stores, I would imagine that it must make some time.
Standard handle, two Ibanez pickups and bridges for the independent stand. Active Electronics added to the settings for volume, balance and tone pickups.
"What kind of handle ?"... then ...


Grip not easy the first time I went to a jazz bass to this beautiful Ibanez with some difficulty. He took a good month for my left hand gets used to the thickness of the handle (and twisting my wrist when I'll get in very serious) and my right hand the number of rope. But for the right hand, I'm still working on it: it takes almost relearn how to play.
Access to treble is super easy: the body-neck junction is round and makes the use of treble very ergonomic.
The instrument is well balanced and surprisingly light, I think it means the difference with my imitation JazzBass and it is not really noticeable.
The sound is really good for the price paid (300 euro) to the extent that it requires a real good amp (next purchase) with power because this beast needs space and Watts!


I'm still a beginner bass player so I do not style of music assigned. It seems to me that this bass will sound very well everywhere, whether for music or funkier lines very heavy metal.
I played with a low end amp fernandes I'm going to change soon as my bank account allows me: a 15W, it's really too little for this baby because she's "trunk".
At my level, I think it sounds good regardless of the settings: it offers a wide range of its really no sin on quality.


I found this by chance and opportunity I was looking for a five-string at the base but before the price of second hand quality of the instrument (almost like new) and especially the technical features (pickups and active electronics, setting jumpers independent type EMG pickups ,...), I did not hesitate long. I think it will help me improve my playing technique of its size (six strings, anyway) before moving on to other models may be more "pro"?, But this is probably that an idea that I am.
