Bronislas's review

By Bronislas, 22/12/2008
- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
In Korea, in the same factories as Cort if I'm not mistaken. Korean manufacturing by the way, it's all good. I am impressed by the finish.

- How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
24 frets, two passive pickups and large active electronics (3 band eq) Ibanez.

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Ibanez bridge, which makes me think Hipshot bridges.

- What are the settings (volume, tone, selector micro ...)?
3-band eq, volume, and micro switch.

- What kind of stick?
Channel pitch long (34 "), very thin, with a profile" U ".


- The handle is it nice?
Very, before I had a bass Epiphone EB-0 with a handle short-scale fine, and I had no trouble to me.

- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
The body is made of a resin, the body is curved at the last frets to facilitate the slap. I do not see what we could do better honestly ...

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
It joins the previous point, the resin provides a lot of quirks, but compared to the EDA and EDC models, ergonomics is more classical but equally effective.

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
The pickups and electronics are very clean. A little too much, lover growl refrain. The sound may seem a bit cold, but I appreciate its definition. It delivers all its potential mediator or slap in my opinion. Finger in the manhandling she also becomes a little fun. The weight is not a dominant criterion in me, I think it is correct, even if it is heavier than the Epiphone EB-0.


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
I used to work my game It fits everywhere and I'm really not disappointed.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Microbass a Peavey or straight into the PC. In both cases I do not notice any problems

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
Like I said earlier, this is not a Precision, but it can issue a lot of serious, medium (or even too!), Ditto for the treble. We can sculpt the sound you want, pouvru sought to remain in the sounds clear enough.

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I love to play mediator and slapper, but the knobs or tampering with a focus on neck pickup, I can have very serious tones that I like.


- For how long have you been using it?
Two months.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
I love its reliability, it hardly goes out of tune! I liked the smell a little less of "oil" (resin requires). But leaving it in my room all the time, and by airing it I do not feel its smell. My friends do not notice it.

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
A little while the very low range bass over 1500 €. New it had to be within the average range. But I have heard that she was the better for low slapper in its lineup. I have not tried everything, but it's true that it sends slap. If it were not so "classic" and if she had a little more personality, it would have been a popular instrument I think. On occasion, I must say it really pulverized any new model would cost in the same waters. I might have are much more expensive models that I keep for work.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Without hesitation! It's bass work, one that never disappoints, which reserves no surprises. This is the best shade, which does not shine by his exuberance, but is invaluable. Before I played the bass as a hobby. Today I have a reliable tool with which I want to advance, for little more than a pack a beginner! Hard to beat.

It's basically your decent quality modern bass. With a few extra features, like the ergodyne material it's made out of.

Price paid



It has a very slim "fast" neck, which means the strings are a little closer together than most basses. It IS on the heavy side, so a small person might have a problem playing standing up for long periods of time.

This is a very well built bass. I think it will last lifetimes with regular maintanace. It is very solid, so it can be manhandled with little worry of damage. It is made of very strong material. I often come across cracked basses in pawn shops. Usually where the neck meets the body, I dont think it's really a problem for this bass though.


This bass is capable of producing a very wide range of tones. The pickups are great because they are noisy like Fenders. It is an active bass with 3 eq knobs for LOWS MIDS and HIGHs, so the sonic possibilities are limitless. It is however a relatively modern sounding bass, but can recreate vintage tones with the proper processing. The edb600 is made out of a man made material created for bass guitars, I think thats what gives it the distinctive tone.


I LOVE this bass. Not only does it have everything I need to play a wide variety of genres, but the fact that its so comfortable to play makes it my favorite bass. I think I would buy another one if i ever lost this one. I call it the Giger, it reminds me of some of his paintings. It has a really modern look, and sounds incredible.

I am a beginner, a bass. Question I find that it's not sound too bad but can be a little cold.
I plugged into a preamp tube art has to have a slight grain. The equalizer is pretty low so we easily find the sound that one seeks.

The handle is incroyabement handy, extra fine! Jouabilit maximum. That's what makes the quality of this model intrinsque. For my part I use a pull rope end trs (extra light) 30,50,70 and 90 for the E string. The sound is great!

Beware of any sharp rglage same, I play often Slap (it lends it well) and loves to have my rope trs prs Handle


I play jazz, and I accompany the electro (effects) I play an Ampeg B-1, everything is perfect


I've had + - 5 years, I shall not change for anything else.
to dpart, I wanted to invest at least double the price of this bass, I came across it and I thought .... is that the!
