MGR/Brandondork's review"Ibanez SR 406"

Ibanez SR406
It was 2 weeks after the New Year, and a buddy of mine and I were at Guitar Center. I was looking, but not to buy. Then I hear "Dude!" I see her (kinda shining there in holiness) I pick her up, played alitte. But what got me stuck was the price! $325 dollars! An Ibanez 6 string bass-never used, for #325! She became mine.

Made of a good sold oak, she's perfectly made to ride the palm of your hand. In looks wise, she classy but with a rock attitude. Jet black from top to bottom, flaws don't really excist on this bass.

You do got be more aware of a big bass moving around. I mean c'mon it's 6 strings! It's bulky, but you get use to it.

Ibanez makes great quality products. So far so good.

The deal of the centery. No one has placed this model on the review board yet. I feel kinda lucky about her. It still brings a tear to my eye.

Audiofanzine FR's review

Ibanez SR406
(Originally written by astroperenoel/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Made in Korea.

The mechanical parts are quite average to lower production costs but the overall quality is good.

Classic bridge, Gotho machine heads, dual truss rod neck, narrow radius.

Comprehensive settings: volume, balance, 3-band EQ.

Wide sound range.

Rather good original pickups.

Weight and balance are ok.

Good sustain.


Very fast and easy-to-play neck.

The low B string is quite powerful.

But you'll have to spend some time fine tuning the string action to suppress fret noise and to get perfectly tuned overtones.

The best solution is to use heavy strings.

Typical Ibanez ergonomics, nice body.

Good overall balance, dynamics and tuning. It's value for money is great for a budget 6-string bass.


Versatile like most Ibanez instruments.

Its sound character is not very strong and the dynamic response could be better.

With a good amp and brilliant strings, it allows you to play every music style except for funk because the punch should be higher.

Slapping is difficult because the strings are very close to each other but the sound is great.

Normal fret wear for an instrument in this price range.

Heavy strings suit it best otherwise you get the impression you are playing with a rubber toy.


I used it for three years and it broke my heart when I sold it.

It's pretty intuitive so you won't need a lot of time to feel comfortable with it.

The sound is a bit soft but considering its price for a 6-string bass, its value for money is very interesting.

Buying a 6-string requires you to think about what you want to do. You just can't buy one on impulse.

Its affordable price proves that Ibanez controls its production costs very good.

It's an interesting instrument with a much lower price tag than superior models (e.g. SR 1306)!

Ibanez SR406
Made in Korea, everything is said in the Previous post.


This low possde a good violin, however, only feature sleeves fans dishes, not the sleeves of "picks".
So the speed of play is excellent, low ropes cart allows chubby little hands to ensure as large!
The sound palette is not dmantielle, for that price you would have suspected but the sound is stunning gnral. Balance good mediums, prcis, hot, really nothing to do with the bass 10 years ago at the same price or more Chres.
Absolutely versatile, it is impressive slap, the sound is more typ Alain Caron, Marcus Miller, and it is really a quality thunder.


Ideal to play fusion, jazz rock, funk, I did not test in rock and mtal, but many followers of this style are over, so ...
I use an amp with EBS, a ARTKE and fit in a modern style, it's - say crystalline, punchy, and not fat, fuzzy and dull, right?
So at the sound, even if we can just play with this low, it is intended to groove fawn Caron, Patitucci, Primus, as well as soloing Obviously ( the chorus of Patitucci, we believe it is still more that work ...)
But I jou reggae and blues with no m'tre kicked out! The collgues have will appreciate the precision of her and her fawn "fit" into the overall sound.


I do not use it since I acquired Noguera, was going to do three years.
NRTEE it wisely on its stand and waits his acqureur Submitted (I do the dusts, it is niquel!)
I like its shape, its handle fast, versatile, which offsets a lack of personality hard to get the two for this price (I sell 300)

The only brand to rival Yamaha is, but it may be a little more expensive.
The report qualitprix is ​​excellent, it was I who did it because I sell it!
I would do choose to buy Ibanez, as recently as last year with a BTB 6 string fretless used.
