UTILIZATION

The handle is enjoyable trs in the middle for a 5 string, but it is subjective.
Access in acute easier.
Good ergonomics: trs beautiful form, and balanced and trslger instrument.
Easily obtained a more than adequate, as this bond issue following the preferences of each and gots in the Contents. Despite the single coils, the breath is trslger. Slecteur the active / passive offers effective corrections trs active and a true bass sound passive smoke. The electronic has never explodes the figure, unlike what many people prtendent. Being able to switch to passive when the battery is dead is apprciable, but it neutralizes the other CONTRL.
Regarding the use gnrale, I confronted a problem t major: the handle spin. It happens. This is a default of manufacturing output of the workshop, or too prolonged exposure showcased in the store I bought it o, I do not know. The facts are l. I may be on the wrong tomb SERIES. I brought a bass from a luthier FIRST TIME prs from home (the era c'tait Reims), to make rgler, and he could not rgler as much given that the handle spin. Ds that I knew, I brought the bass in Bass Service Center. The seller was happy to go the strings (but not the pickups) to avoid the frisouille, and reassuring me, I made it even worse than before RULES. Things have worsened over time recess and so I bring a deuxime time in Bass Center, this time requiring a change of handle. This would take the two weeks (depending Mr Bass Center), aa hard over a month (with apologies can ever as each other each time I returned in that respect their esprant d lais).

SOUNDS

Sounds good, whether active or passive.
If the grave is Dfine, not too soft.
I played on an EBS Fafner + 4 * 10 in concert, and a Pod XT Pro home (the era). Regardless of the hardware, this bass sounds correctly the base, but the test rflexion and APRS have more stuff, I feel that the sound is sometimes diffuse, according rglages of electronics, compared to other low in the same price range or even less Chres! Not to mention brand I'd say the Ibanez BTB1005 it is at least equivalent in terms of sound quality for a lower price (- 2000). I speak from Ibanez because I know this brand, but you can also look at the cot of Mayon, Neuser, etc., in the same price range, but the I do not know. I do not absolutely compare the violin, just the sound. The Ibanez, whose violin is excellent, is a MODEL SERIES for when the Expression is a MODEL of luthier.
Let me explain: I think I think and I think the sound is better Dfine, more and more Submitted prcis with BTB1005, but so far it does not sound color possde engaging and SPECIFICATIONS of Expression Plus. This may be also from the fact that I like the sound Bartolini. It is important for me to have a sound that has a good performance and good clarity in all circumstances. I used this bass for a bit of all styles of music and this bass can sound like giving bad rsultats if you do not know how to use the qualisation boards, or compensate for missing with the amp.
We can therefore obtain a wide range of sounds.
My rglage prfr be: in passive balance to the bridge pickup, the sound is warm typ. As there are so many active power that I'm using it for concerts in case I do not get along ... attention because the race of CONTRL is not complete linear (that is my impression) I mean by that a booster frquence, notament bass, makes the sound too dull or confused . Just know dose the equalization according to his tastes and his ears.

OVERALL OPINION

I sold in September 2004. I used a year and a half.
I love the shape, the handle trs comfortable, lgret.
I dislike: the electronic, which allows for the worst and the best in terms of sounds, random image quality (I'm assuming that I came across a bad SERIES ago full of undefined users are happy with their Noguera and have not registered your mind) Unfortunately, a random image quality that the price (1930 in 03/2003, 13/01/2005 at count 2305) is unacceptable I do not forgive (note o).
I dj a possde Vigier Passion IV.
Report quality price: this price, we expect better performance, especially considering the rate increase. But may be that today, the quality volumes proportionally to the price, I have not tried since Noguera.
With exprience, I will not repeat that choice, but this only applies to me. Basically j'tais came into the store to buy just such a set of strings and I tried this bass to me in 30mins sduit test. I had a bass with a serious but if the base I wanted something else ... Especially given the price of the team in BTB1005 Bartolini, if I had to redo a choice now, I will not hsiter the Ibanez. It may be less than caratre personality, but reliability issue and, I believe the ratio quality price is much better than the Noguera. I possde a BTB406 and even if it is not the high end is a low-price quality of a report without fail.
Obviously, I would never buy any gear at Bass Center.
Noguera is the same all the good bass luthier that it is better to try if you have the possibility to esprant you do not experience the same concerns.
In conclusion, I would say that this bass srieuses competing in the same price range-or even less Christian and that we must try everything, even compare the violin, color, sound etc (when possible) not to regret the purchase.
If this bass you should you, so good and the achte zic!
