One of the least bad system

By J-Luc Fabre, 22/11/2010
I used this cell for a year and a half after having an old Barcus Berry, a fismann BP 100: to avoid, or manufacturing or even, 2 to 1 € piezo wafer, solder, glue for solidify ... I made a few, to test, and I currently use a Schertler Stat B select.
You can connect the full circle live on a bass amp, but there is a problem of impedance matching. Through a preamp designed for the high impedance of piezo are recovered severe grain, "air" in the acute and dynamics. It feels a little difference at home, but in a situation on stage, we quickly understand that it is essential when making the comparison with / without. For me, it's the old preamp minimum of Barcus I emerged from the dust that filled that office.
Among the problems: there may be poor contact at the white wire that goes into the wheel problem on the first models I think, is removable and changeable for added strength, but I have not tried. (See forums
Advantage: we have a good bass sound with this cell. Disadvantage: yes, but not that of my bass ... the sound engineer is happy but me I hear a different instrument than the one I work at home in acoustics. Yes, I know is looking for the holy grail of bass.
I would do if this election? I do not know. For now, I have a Schertler is good but not perfect either. I continue my quest for pure sound of the CB in the amp, including making my own experiences of manufacturing cell when I have time.


Finally a good cell

Finally a good cell for bass.
I use it for two years.
Even without an amp live on stage in a DI it sounds terrible. I bring equa always pedal home boss if it is rare that I serve.
Very few repiste (very useful when using a looper ...)
For the slap is not the best obviously but it still works pretty well, and ideally add a microphone in front ... but again the same happens when good slap.
I do not play in the bow but it seems it is great for that too.
ATTENTION, Fishman made two cells for the bass the best and worst fullcircle the bp 100, which is my luthier says and I totally agree with him for having both.

The fullcircle must be installed by a luthier because he must cut the bridge.

Conclusion: that happiness, I am amazed every time the sound quality


good good

used for a few months and around thirty concerts, with or without sound
mounted by a luthier (€ 330 including mounting and edit bridge) is mounted on the bracket serious side, we rarely acute side, it seems to work too.

it works, we hear his bass. it's not flattering on any frequency, particularly in the low, but very balanced.
to use on a big bass without lack of balance.
opinion temper because the systems are highly dependent on the instrument used ...

I had a stat B before, during 6 or 7 years, and a pawn in david interval for 3 or 4 weeks.

spend on david guarantee that I found very beautiful one, but completely lost in a goup, not defined at all volume that requires a battery, too deaf to the GK MB150

the stat B works great, beautiful sound in all situations, but past a certain volume means more its bass ... means a stat B
curious since it is a micro ... but it is very good on a medium low to compensate for his lack of stamp or character, or to play directories where the bass has a function as visual and sound ...
the full circle has less output level (liabilities) is less than the stat B (even if at the time the mine had cost me € 300 for 450 now!)

So passing full circle, I plug into the amp and I say shit does not work ...
in fact it works so well that as the level of the amp is not higher than the bass sound (at noon on the GK MB), one does not hear clearly, is super accurate ( I play on a low end French XIX stamped and very homogeneous)
while 9 o'clock on the amp could be heard roundness and compression stats B

Finally, the full circle has satisfied me, no battery change, no box etc ...
In a DI is the soundman happy studio coupled with a micro recovering attack on a 150 MB gallien it works great club on a svt or bassman in outside also, it works in all situations!

it's so big that its Schertler but it allows a greater relief and high volume (voiced so) we always hear bass SA

Finally a bass the first factor is that the bassist ...
the system is not there to compensate for the shortcomings of Jouage, but to restore all the sonic palette. Basically it's a good system to play better because we hear more we play poorly
From this point of view the full circle is one of the best current systems, but not the "easy" to use

9 out of 10 because its neutrality is in my opinion a quality
