k-pikeupon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent midrange 5-String"

Ibanez SR505
In short, this is a low 5 string active South Korean equipped with Bartolini MK1 pickups.
5 knobs, 2 large for the overall volume and a balance between the 2 mics + 3 small for adjusting bass / mid / treble mode cut / boost


It is lightweight (less than 9 pounds), the handle has 24 frets (a motorway!) And is thinner than a stick Jazzbass example. Me I prefer the stick but Ibanez is a matter of taste, try to get an idea of the beast.
Access to the last frets is easy, the sliding handle alone, I love.
The bass comes with strings Elixyr a little bland, I've changed for Ernie Ball Slinky "something" with pulling a hair bigger, and there is America, we get a slightly metallic sound that I also love.
Since we speak about the sound, it's very easy to find hers, turn the knobs of the EQ and it becomes magical sound immediately. Have fun and find your sound. The slapping works very well, especially when you push a little torque midrange / treble on the EQ


Me I usually put the pickup balance in the middle, slightly dropping the medium and a little boost bass and treble. Everything is connected to a head Bass Terror + Orange cab SWR working pro's 4x10, and it's magic. Indeed, the EQ of my head Orange is not great so I do my settings on my bass and it is hell


I use it for almost 3 years and I would do this choice with your eyes closed. There are certainly other basses for better quality, but for the price it has largely to his hard-earned money. Basically, it perfect for the person who seeks a low stylish, lightweight, with a varied sonic palette, and a very affordable price in terms of what it has to offer.

The only major criticism I made him finish it. Indeed, the varnish does not hold very well (I play with fingers and jumping to paint the place where I put my thumb), it easily takes the shots if they knock (unintentionally of course ...) and knob Mechanical and tend to oxidize over time. For the rest it works very well

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

Ibanez SR505
Low made in Korea.
the neck has 24 frets overcome string Elixir, 2 Bartolini MK-1 pickups and an electronic active Bartolini MK-1.
A bridge Accu-Cast B25 bridge with 16.5mm of thickness (which gives us a little cart between the rope just as well in order to go fast.)
The electronic has a volume, a balance and a legalization knob has 3 (severe, acute and mdium)
Channel 5 aims spices Jatoba / Bubinga and Mahogany body


The handle is trs enjoyable, very easy to ACCS Acute serious and that thanks to its handle end trs.
the shape is perfect, although balance and weight concerns is not GNER personne.Seul plate stack has the rear, c is the former but the new MODEL MODEL has changed, more practice.
the sound is achieved very easy thanks to the legalization three bands.


It is suitable for any style, pushing yields a sharp slap his trs, increasing mdium trs punk sound and increasing the bass sound trs jazz, rock.
I play on a Hartke 3500a ha with a box VX 115, the sound is perfect. Thanks to the legalization of the IBAN and that of the Hartke sound j'apprcie I get the most, well a heavy, fatty, I push on my ibanez bass has the background and I push my amp too, perfect sound.
I love all the sounds of this bass, I play with all these sounds at different times and the song.


I use it for 2 years now.
I love everything about this bass, the less will be the micro plate derrire 9v, c is the former MODEL plates with screws, but now Ibanez has changed the plate.
I try other models, a 5-string fame baphomet, she liked me too but I had the Ibanez for less then d in I enjoy: D.
qualitprix the report is EXCELLENT, that is a low gnial;) .
I will do it again without choice problem.
