Ibanez BTB556MP
Low made in Korea
sandwich body maple / mahogany / maple
Round 5 parts maple / walnut
2 humbucker pickups Ibanez
3-band eq with parametric medium
Elixir strings


At first contact I find this bass a little less beautiful that picture but it is not bad at all
the first contact with the handle resembles a bass luthier: fine, stiff and upright as the strings are mounted very low, rather flat
the string spacing is less than a 4c, ideal for quick play and not embarrassing for me as very basic slappeurs
vacuum is still thinking about her a bass luthier, sound is balanced throughout the race, the notes have beautiful harmonics, touch is class
correct weight because the body of this bass is thinner than normal


The sound is almost anti thesis of a passive bass old
this bass is so chameleon that one has the impression at first that she didnt own personality.
There or a bass luthier has taken part, this coffee gives you a neutral basis for its full, very fast and powerful, high quality (with a beautiful timbre) and you do what you want with, thanks to the well-designed super electronic
Me, I love this feature, it's a little less fun to work at home, but on stage or in the studio, it becomes a huge asset


C is simply by finishing details that we see that this is not a bass luthier
Otherwise, a quality / price like this, I knew that it could not even exist!

In any case, it is up to all that it is saying to her
Given the price, full marks everywhere
PS: I just use the concert (variety, jazz), this bass has an amazing sound in the mix, very musical
PS 2: Ibanez tjrs in its preamp using the TL062 op amp, handymen can replace it with another op amp low TLE2022 consumption, which sounds a bit warmer with highs mids more singing

Ibanez BTB556MP
Maple body, natural finish 2 Bartolini pickups
3-band EQ Ibanez, parametric mids


Handle easy and enjoyable. Somewhat laborious passage 6 strings, but after finding so little time, I keep my 4 strings for slap, a six personal is not conceived for that, but it agrees that no moi.Je recommend it for Plans funk, jazz, pop or see variety. Actually saw its possibilities can play anything ...


SWR uses a personal day and two 350W Gallien Krueger XL box below 2X10 and 1X15 range, or rather cheap and yet have a sound j hell, there I haven that compliments the bass is great, it inspires my m good day ;-)
J have also decided to make défrettée his sound palette is so vast that it will no more value than ...


Low average range, but for those who have not wanted to shell out the big bucks and not justified tjrs, I recommend it is simply beautiful, fun to play, the sound is more than this in all circumstances or style of play .. My Wife she would read me a crisis ... c but good is another story LOL
But I will not even put him to quote only 9, so as not to offend some users stuff "prestigious" ;-)

I hope you have completed the other reviews already posted.
Conclusion: there is no pictures, value for money do not hesitate ...

zapfool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I'm tired"

Ibanez BTB556MP
Maple body, natural satin finish
2 Bartolini MK1 pickups
3-band EQ Ibanez, parametric mids
Easel individual saddles


Handle easy and enjoyable. For someone who wants to go from 4 to 6 strings, it is the ideal instrument.


I play the Funk-Rock-Reggae-Bossa. Its versatility is remarkable.
I use a standard setup Hartke HA3500 + 410 + Xl XL 115
After each concert, there atoujours people who come to me saying "but what a terrible bass sound, one not often hear a beautiful sound." The instrument is for many, perhaps even more than the amp.


I use this bass for over 5 years and exclusively. This instrument is my heart stroke. For this price, it is unbeatable. I think even buy a second to make défretter, it tickles me more.

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

Ibanez BTB556MP
Has this bass made in Korea

It has 23 freight (24 per floor and do)

The bridge has individual saddles

The rglages are: Volume, Balance, Mdium paramtrique three bands (two knobs), Grave, Agu

The handle is screwed. The finish is irrprochable. The wood is satin and shows the species of wood (mahogany, saddle)


The handle is enjoyable, a real highway
CHAC is to agu ais
Ergonomics is good, weight is a little felt.
It stings a little nose in the sitting position if we loose the handle. Otherwise it is a good low balance, and when we play it up is one with me
The sound is really INTERESTED, we obtain a wide range of sound (Alain Caron through Marcus and many others)

It should grind a little to get the sound rglages dsirmais when it was a fact.


The sounds suit all styles of music
You can have one for his roots reggae by boosting the bass, have a funk sound, ect ....
It is mandatory to an amp with a dot HP 15 "If that happens quietly serious.
The prampli send serious power and it's not for dplaire


I use it recently and I think rditerai APRS
APRS trying TRB low as 1006 and others which are worth twice the price this one, I t enjoyable surprised by the report of this qualitprix low.
She did not envy some bass.
A board will try it you will see you will not be due

[edit 09/07/2005]
It's been over two months that I am satisfied
It's beautiful trs violin, the sound is to go and fun too
I never tire of watching the play, and to distill all the infra sound
It MRIT well 10/10
That's not all, but his name is
