(Originally written by greini/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Bass guitar made in Korea (I guess...). Very nice manufacturing quality! I've seen more expensive instruments with worst finishes: the varnish looks great, the woods are very good.

5-string active bass with a 22-fret neck, Fender-type bridge, volume, balance, treble, mid and bass controls and Jazz Bass-style neck.


Very good playability, easy to adjust, very low string action without fret noise. The instrument faithfully reproduces every nuance of your playing.

How does it sound? The sound ranges from modern Jazz Bass to modern Precision Bass sounds. The sound is a bit cold and analytic but it can easily find its place in a mix. The low B string sounds alright.


I play pop music with this it and I'm satisfied. The bass is light and has a nice natural look. I use a pair of effects (chorus for ballads, overdrive for rock songs, BassBall for funky tunes) and the outcome is also very good.

The sound allows me to play anything from reggae to disco, rock, tango, etc. This bass guitar is very versatile.


I've owned it for a few months and I would definitely buy it again. But I'm also thinking about buying a high-end Yamaha (a TRB maybe) because they are well-designed, sturdy, versatile, beautiful, etc.
