Ibanez EDA 905 (Ibanez - EDA905)

By MGR/Luke, 10/02/2005
Got this amzing beast for £500 from a music shop in England. Wanted a decent bass to progress on. The color is orange.

The shape is wierd, but is so easy to get on with - is lightweight, fits well to your body, the neck is slim and really easy to play . The tones and volumes are compltetly adjustable to your own sound and each string can be adjusted for volume. The blend between the piezos and magnetic pickup can be adjusted to your own sound! Just amazing for orginality.

At first the piezos were too sensitive and tremble for my liking so I adjusted the pots at the back to suit me, but then again that's more of an advantage. I've found that it goes out of tune quite quickly, but that's not much of a prob. As it can be changed quite a lot it's quite hard to keep it at the same tone.

I would say that the construction and quality could be improved as it is a mid/high cost bass and doesn't use wood for the body. I've found that the action has changed sometimes - from being too tight on ist fret until I lossened the screws a bit on bolt on.

It's a versatile bass built for orginality and diversification in mind. However, if you just want a quick, easy bass to pick up and play this is not the one as it takes a bit of tweaking to get your sound. As I've only owed one other bass before I cannot really give an informed judgment, but I can say it feels great to play; has a unique and varied sound and looks fantastic!

Ibanez Ergodyne (Ibanez - EDA905)

I play bass and guitar. I'm not amazing at ethier one and I'm not being modest. i have the education of a redneck and was taught by one. I'm into anything from just solid good punk, ska, ol' skool thrash and rap, and of course horror punk and psychobilly

One fine day, I threw down my fender and said "I think I'll get a new bass!" Now I knew i had good luck that day because normally when I pull out of my drive way this idiot kid (let's call him wayde) always get in the way which I'm forced to toss the rest of my McMuffin to distract him while i pull out. But, any ways I got this bass USED for about $350 at Guitar center.

I don't know much about the finess of basses. Infact I suck pretty much but I did like the sound of the bass. The 3 knobs besides the volume and tone give a wide variety of sounds to choose from. I love the compact body compared to my fender (Which I call him scooter). The pickups are great and deliver a bold metal like sound.

The strings are placed low to the neck which is fine, but the neck is placed low to the body and the pickup is an inch and a half away so Maybe i suck at poping and slaping (Actually I do, because i let my friend play it and he flew on that neck (I felt like crap afterwords)) But I stumble on my strings a lot. The bass itself is heavy and there is this weird gash that slices down the middle of the body and ruined my plans to pinstripe around the pickups.

Okay here is the overview The strings are low to the neck, the pickups get in the way but I manage. The bass is heavy but sturdy and the tuning pegs stay in place and are solid so they really feel like they are holding those strings.

Its a great 5 string bass for anyone who just wants to expierement with a 5 string. I delivers excellent sound and performance.

Coming soon check out my hip review on the fender "scooter" squier! Oh yeah!

Ibanez EDA900 Ergodyne (Ibanez - EDA900)

Hi, I play the Bass, ive been playing roughly for about 4 years but i am only 17 so its not as long as most, im an a band that is quite successful in my hometown of Lowestoft (UK), we do local gigs around that area and are currently looking for bigger venues to play, im mainly influenced by Metal bands (Ozzy, Black label society, Metallica, Rush etc)

i brought my Ibanez from a shop in Norwich (UK) for £240 (used), the shop was called Sound Control (My favourite local guitar shop)

The thing that made me look at this Ibanez was the awesome body shape i think its a very creative shape i love it, i personnaly dont think that i can fault this product in anyway,

nothing to me this is the nicest sounding bass ive ever layed my 22cm hands on

The sound of the Ibanez is amazing i ue it with a ZOOM 206 bass effects pedal were i add a little distortion and occasionally a bit of slap just for that Kick up the ass. There is a problem though with the acoustics fair enough people usually play through some kick ass Bass amp but when its not through an amp the sound lacks a bit?

personnaly every decent bass player should have purchased one of these bass guitars, i think they are an amazing display of the quality that Ibanez can produce so go out and BUY ONE!!

Ibanez EDC700 Ergodyne (Ibanez - EDC700)

By MGR/Seth, 26/03/2008
I have been playing bass since I was 15 and am now 30. I have played in a few bands, recorded a demo, and have played many live shows all over the Boston area. I mostly like metal, but I'm good with anything.

I bought this bass at Guitar Center In Peabody Massachusetts. I traded in a 5 string Ibanez Soundgear, and a Peavy 100W amp and paid about 100.

It is THE most amazing bass I've ever played. It has the most amazing feel, it is completely sculpted to fit your body, and scooped out in the front so you can get under the strings very easily. It is also the best sounding bass I've owned, and I've gone through 6 trying to find this gem. Aesthetically, it's simply gorgeous and is very rugged. I have had no issues with scratching, denting, or anything of the sort. It looks as though I bought it yesterday.

There is not one thing I dislike about this bass. I have to tune it less than I've ever had to with my others, and everything is very very solid.

It is a molded piece, not carved, so it's very unique. It's balanced perfectly, light, is the perfect length and demands attention.

If anyone is in the market for a new bass, you really should do yourself a favor and check this one out. It really is an amazing bass which has made me look at construction completely differently.

Check it out.
