BIG SOUND

By BoooooL, 14/04/2012
Shortscale low (short scale), quarter cash, made in USA, 20 frets, one humbucker in the neck position, a volume control and a tone control, plus a switch that also changes the tone. Is no longer produced since 1970.

UTILIZATION

I only played with a pick, it is not made for the slap, and having removed the covers to play with a pick, I discomfort for finger-style playing, and anyway why I prefer my Jazzbass (question of taste). The short handle (about 10cm of me than a Jazzbass example) is very enjoyable to play, it slides alone. It was surprisingly tends to play like a guitarist, I'm not sure how to explain it, you'll see for yourself if you try it ^ ^ Access to treble is very good compared to other low ( fender, musicman ...). on the other hand balance is not great, it tends to wander a bit if we stir a little, but personally it does not bother me so much.

SOUNDS

It is ideally suited to my style of music (rock beefy, stoner ...), but is much less versatile than against my Jazzbass: she really has a particular sound, huge, very round, strong. I use it on an Ampeg SVT-VR, usually with a saturation Ibanez TS9 (which surprisingly turn out quarter-cash). In short, if you want to get a view of the possibilities of this low, I suggest you listen to a little black rebel motorcycle club, it will be better than a long written explanation ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 months now, I'll try to update this review later, but I do not have much to add or change.
Most is undoubtedly its fat humbucker / quarter cash, but it is also its weak point (if one may say): you can not, in my opinion, not playing anything and everything with. If you want versatility, go your way! In short, it is better to try before you buy, it may not please everyone.
Price level, it's still quite a investment, but the kind that's really a quality instrument. Otherwise, there is always the Epiphone Rivoli, a little cheaper, exactly the same except the shape of the head and the mark made it ...
