Whale Killerwhale 2
I bought on a trip to Pusan ​​(South Korea), which is my hometown. I go every year in Korea so I could see the progress made by their makers. Very honestly they are at the Jap and U.S. now. Moreover only the high-end brands like Cort or Moore is manufactured in Korea. The rest is outsourced to China or India!
It's the same whale, their low-end are made in China, the rest of Korea.
Killerwhale the turn is made in Korea in factories that manufactured the Ibanez prestige saber 2105. So the very good job done by workers as experts than Gibson or Fender!
The instrument is mahogany so we both his fender and sound of Gibson + metal sounds with the boost engaged.
Features:
- Mahogany body with one piece lightweight and very resonant vacuum
- Mahogany neck 24 frets rounded profile that pulls V in acute
- Seymour Duncan USA: SH6 distortion neck, Central sl6, TB6 distortion acute.
- Selector Tool + 5 position pickups split on the tone.
- Active Guitar (for my version) selector 3 positions boost bass or midrange. 9v battery in a trap.
- Pink Floyd zero friction identical to ibanez prestige.

This guitar is of incredible quality for the price. It has 30 sounds under your fingers!

UTILIZATION

The handle is very very successful, less typical metal my Ibanez Sabre, it allows you to play almost all music. V is less than my Fender strat deluxe and the frets are spaced less than my Ibanez. I do not even speak the handle 50 'Gibson my traditionnal!
The body is light, so well seasoned. very resonant and comfortable.
Floyd is impeccable. It fits perfectly the agreement and returns perfectly in place. More you can rely on for palm mute.
The sound: it is the apotheosis!

SOUNDS

Not split the sound is very fat, very heavy on the neck pickup, it sounds les paul. Splite once it becomes crystalline. With the active boost the sound gets much precision to accept very large saturations.
The bridge pickup is a killer, with medium boost it really tears while being thicker than emg 81 (and hot).
The out of phase 2 and 4 position offers its typical fender with a little more mellow maybe.
The middle pickup is great for funk.
In short this guitar is very effective, it offers 30 high quality sounds, hard not to find SOUND addressed whatever the style.

OVERALL OPINION

I love the warmth of this guitar, versatility that goes from metal to jazz, her perfect round. Its Boost bass or treble. For 780 euros, it is higher than my fender and my gibson and far ahead of my saber. Indeed it offers three such guitar sound at a time. An ideal tool if you need to use a guitar on stage or in studio.

Whale Killerwhale 2
manufactured by RIRA guitar in Korea I think they have seen these models in the catalog, the floyd is an honest licensed, 24 frets, the neck is heavenly, pickups are seymour real and not least, the middle one husband perfectly with the other two, with the split here brings us dozens of sounds all the more interesting one than the other.

UTILIZATION

all whales that I have tried the handle of a dream, for this model the metal-oriented interface is perfect, lightweight, balanced ...
here sounds in all styles, easy handle, the stringed honors Seymours that sound wonderful here, or maybe the reverse ....
a pleasure to play.

SOUNDS

we get not a good sound, but a dozen all sounds interesting, the big metal sounds really good .... stratosfériques vitamin, seymour duncan in all its splandeur.

OVERALL OPINION

whale is a registered gone and that's a shame for those who do not have one and are really a great class as much in terms of its aesthetic, posed next to a custom shop it no is not shameful for the price of secondhand is the business opportunity, it really sounds very good.

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

Whale Killerwhale 2
I quote directly to the catalog:
- Manufacturing Corenne
- Mahogany body
- Rosewood 24 frets
- Seymour Duncun SH6N (handle) SHR1N (central) TB6 (Bridge)
- One volume, one Tone (with push-pull: split of two double microphones)
- Slecteur 5 position
- Lo-Pro II tremolo licensed under Floyd Rose
- Mcanique oil bath
- Black hardware satinbr /> - Case and strap with the guitar book.

Note that the shape of the guitar is original and does not inaperue

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it enjoyable?
The handle is fine and enjoyable to touch the hand slides easily. Only the gloss inconvnient derrire handle that ncessite APRS use a little help from cloth to avoid it is too dirty (for the most obsessive of you = D)

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
Yes trs, the shape of the guitar (see picture) can put his hand on the lowest string and play without being gn.

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Weight level the handle is quite dense, making it possible to balance the weight of the body that remains reasonable despite the presence of two humbuckers.

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
Ouiiiii! And in addition to the switch for humbuckers was incredible versatility. I use it to make mtal and "double micro" is a true central daemon!

- And the tremolo? It holds the road?
Certainly not a Floyd Rose original US dj but it can be subjected to a lot of things without there is dsaccord. Even if the LGERS carts may occur.

SOUNDS

- Appropriate are your style of music?
I think it may suit those who play any of mtal thanks its powerful microphones that is needed both in the rhythm very heavy or in the Pantera solos that rises in the acute or severe. In addition to position "run-center" gives a clear sound INTERESTED.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play a Peavy 10 watt with a BOSS DS1 distortion pedals in one and Weeping Demon (wah Ibanez). And hard, I can not imagine what would have on a 50Watts or more!

OVERALL OPINION

Commenons quality compared with the price because the price is quite important. I bought new 499. And I can tell you that for the price I'm not! It's well worth nothing that the microphones are worth almost the price dj l.
So my advice and explanations of previous ones are as low that it costs only 499.
And for that price I do it again this choice.
I played on one that costs 250 GAS60 and if based on the price it is not worth half of this little wonder!
The same Ibanez, Cort I tried before for this same price was not the quality of the handle and ease.
To tell you the only guitar I've tried and offered me as much ease is rdition the RG550 but the price is double ... (I'm not saying that more than 1000 models are not as well. I give just one example).

So if you hsitez between Ibanez, Lag or this KILLERWHALLE BLACK II (in this price range) do as I try and be happy!

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

Whale Killerwhale 2
A Korean manufacturing
an easel licensed floyd rose
inning with cell tagging, binding, fast, pleasant, 24 boxes
3 pickups seymour duncan license, the typical trio SH4, TB6 ...
a push / pull tone for a volume.

UTILIZATION

Super ergonomic guitar very light, easy access to acute, the sound: it arrche severe without being either an ESP but for aspiring metalheads do not worry it gets easier the sound Dime Darell;


SOUNDS

I tested it on an amp Paevey 50/50 ENGL preamp and Peavey speaker, it sounds very good, the floyd does not take too easily désacorde the road and a good adjustment is necessary (ressérage springs) several friends metalheads finds excellent thinking that it is a far superior brand but when they see that it's a whale they are surprised.

OVERALL OPINION

I paid 200 euros new Specials in the series on a big site selling instruments, with strap, key control and flight case, I bought it because at that price it was really a case although I do is in rather rare occasion when I want to have fun making plans metal.
