The handle is really nice, provided with Elixir is a highway (of course, I never tested low premium for comparison, but in any case I enjoy). She is not heavy, well balanced, really fun to play.


At this point, I'd be more reserved. The active electronics missing a lot of potatoes and the general trend of the bass is a sound way too bright for me. However, it is doing less with various settings.


A pretty low, very nice to play but is a little disappointing in terms of sound, at least for my taste. His absence the most annoying: the stack, which on the old version is housed in a plate and screw terminals connected to two ultra-sensitive.
