Good bass for beginners

Peavey Grind Bass 5Published on 12/04/12 at 01:34
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is a 5-string bass, neck-through, 24 fret, passive electronics with two humbuckers with a volume and tone each. It was made in Vietnam.
I would not say that this is the great violin, but it is very proper for this level range.

UTILIZATION

The handle is quite wide and round, I think it is pretty good, but it's really a different handle or Jazz Bass G & L L2000 for example. This is a bass that weighs a good weight, when I bought my G & L I was shocked to see the light of the new.
Easy access to acute, especially as the body is "thinned" at the junction body handle (I will try to post a picture tonight for clarity).

Easy access to acute, especially as the body is "thinned" at the junction body handle (I will try to post a picture tonight for clarity).
On the (s) sound (s), we can say that this bass is quite versatile, having both pickups made quite different (normal, the handle and the other to the bridge!). We must realize, however, that this is a low entry-level passive, and that will never happen to a Jazz Bass treble, or the sound of MusicMan ...

SOUNDS

I play on a MarkBass amp LM250, having long played on my first amp, a Roland Cube 100W. The only effect that I allow myself time for compression is to smooth a little volume spikes due to my game right hand.
This does not lower its that I hate, and against it has a good presence in the bass, which I love. A small gripe would be the relative inaccuracy in the midrange, but because of its design, it is normal that the low outweigh the rest.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this bass for about 7 years, this is my first bass. I gave him a few infidelities with a G & L Tribute L2000 (since I sold because it was too much in the medium for my taste). Finally I returned to my first bass. I changed the electronics turning one volume to replace it with a micro balance, and I think it really is more convenient as well.
Among its qualities, there is his look, and his big presence in the lower spectrum. Among its flaws, the fact that this "bump" in serious harm somewhat rest of the spectrum, and in particular mediums.
Level money, I think it's all good for the price paid, it is a very decent quality instrument.
With experience, I would buy maybe even if it was low to begin with, but perhaps not as second or third bass.

The Grind 5 is a 5-string bass with two pickups SETTING THE Tone and volume for each of them. It has a handle particulirement long, fast and offers a comfortable ACCS particulirment notes most leves. As I wanted a 5 string with a good sound clean enough, I give 10. But that's not all of the same active low, either.

UTILIZATION

A I-DO-RE the handle. Access in gnial is acute. The ergonomics are perfect. Gnralement and the sound is quite flattering. The only inconvnient, the length of the handle bold: rglage by a luthier is essential in addition to the rglage factory. That's why I only give 9.

SOUNDS

Since I play both finger slap that (but almost never plectrum), I need a bass who can be as round as the finger snapping to slap. Well, this 5-string does. It frankly surprised me for the price. For me, the sound is nickel. Gliscendo games, tie rods, bars, everything goes with style and depth. So, 10.

OVERALL OPINION

Well, I'm Deeply in love, whatever. My poor old Rickenbacker does not seen me for a few months ;-). Just a note for less NCESS monitor rglage the handle, but it is to the bold design of it. We can not have everything ....

OVERALL OPINION

I tried this coffee shop because it really made me the eye. I find it very beautiful and it is not very expensive.

Horror! The edges of frets, not sanded or filed, representing real metallic splinters ready to ravage the skin. Really dangerous and unplayable.

I thought: maybe an opportunity to have a very low price broken. I entrust it to a friend who affects violin and arrange it.

But the few tests I still play that made it I was not at all convinced in his. In addition, the coating of the handle is a bit special: the contact is not very pleasant and...…

I thought: maybe an opportunity to have a very low price broken. I entrust it to a friend who affects violin and arrange it.

But the few tests I still play that made it I was not at all convinced in his. In addition, the coating of the handle is a bit special: the contact is not very pleasant and it hangs over it from slipping. Without wishing to Hollyday on ice on the handle, you still have some mobility.

Too bad.

For the history of hoops, I hope it was a manufacturing defect only. I'll have another try to see because it's very surprising, such laxity on the finish from Peavy. The bass was completely unplayable in the state (or while wearing gloves with steel mesh, and even then it would hang), and asked a lot of work editing.

on the other hand, for his disappointment, not convincing. Too bad because I find it really beautiful.

This notice is to be taken with reservations: Given the danger to the hand represented by the sharp frets, the tests could not be very thorough and it is possible that I came across a copy pourrave. Get your own opinion.

Incidentally, one wonders how a music store to put on the shelf, so to test low in such a state that could injure a tester.
