His Handsome Beau (Ibanez - GSR180)

By marcofromtheshot, 02/09/2014
Ibanez GSR 180 Sunburst. His Handsome Beau

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice. For me, who am not a bass player, it's nice not to sweat too much to leave a line of low correct. it allows me to play on my models, troubleshoot a friend, to make the jam.

SOUNDS

The sound is right and very satisfying. One can make the walk, slapper, round sound effect for a "wall". I use both a table or in recording and sometimes (rarely) on a guitar amp I put reverb and bass to zero.

OVERALL OPINION

As usual, we used an Ibanez entry level which is not a low-end: honest, elegant, this is a very good first choice if we begin, a very good second low for confirmation.

Not too bad, although ... (Ibanez - GSR200)

By StAmp!, 24/06/2013
Made in Indonesia.
The model I have is exactly the same but passive version.
Late innings, 21 frets (in my memory anyway).
A typical JB and PB-type microphone. 3 knobs (1 volume and 2 tone).
Agathis body.

UTILIZATION

Good as in the previous review I will say that this is a good bass study, fairly light, well balanced weight side but not its side (indeed some strings, regardless of the settings, did not sound as strong as the other , Charles will know ...). I said that the welds are between the knobs and pickups have dropped (besides what's funny is that I had bought in a beginner pack and all accessories which accompanied it all ended I quickly snapped between the legs, Conclusion No. 1: If you think getting a good deal by buying the complete package, you make a huge mistake ...).
I frankly never understood the logic of setting the knobs anyway? Let me explain: Basically when we have 3 knobs on a low (maybe wrong I) and there is only one volume knob and that the decline is not fully supposed to have no sound? Well no! Ibanez they are launching a new concept: two knobs down randomly at the same time to mute frankly ... then I say ... RESPECT! We had never done anything so strange and impractical before!
Conclusion # 2: The guys who designed this model are either sadistic or completely stupid!

SOUNDS

When I bought it was sufficient in relation to my expectations because I just wanted to get a sound that approximates or indirectly to a bass sound. I got back into the hands recently for a short time and it still does not sound too bad. It is fairly accurate in the sounds it out.

OVERALL OPINION

Well not mine it's been almost 10 years that I have and despite the repairs to the electronics it has at no point moved. I did not really proven useful at the time to test other models because I had no knowledge of the subject, I just wanted a low (good or bad). Well it's not so bad but not enough to be kept as long as the lack of balance in his (the gear supplied in the pack that snaps at a phenomenal rate), and the electronics fail, excluding the varnish handle that as and when the time disappeared (there are still ^ ^) I thought that ultimately I would have done better not buy a bass with 50-100 € more.
I finally fourguée my guitarist who was happy to have a low end in the hands (like most guitarists I know for that matter) at the end everyone was happy.

Final conclusion: If you really want to enjoy a unique instrument you want to play rockstar burst of rage your instrument on the ground do not buy this bass, add 100 € more, buy a little amp beside occasion you will surely printing lose less money.

Very good bass for beginners (Ibanez - GSR180)

By zotsa01, 26/05/2013
4 strings, agathis body, maple neck (GSR4), rosewood fretboard, 22 medium frets
2 PSNDJ Ibanez pickups, 2 Volume, Tone, passive
Bridge: B10 (19 mm between strings, ideal for learning)
GSR Series

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, fine, very easy to play. Quality sleeves Ibanez is no longer in doubt.
The strings can be set loan handle without any problems.
Mine was already well set to buy (do not hesitate to ask for an adjustment when you buy a coffee in store).
This bass is very light, nice shape, typical Ibanez.
Micro well placed to handle the slap also very convenient to put your thumb.
Really good bass to start, even if it is a low end, it's still an Ibanez!

SOUNDS

2 passive pickups, no problem with the battery! The settings are on the amp.
Lower happening everywhere, not at all typical. We can all play on, but it excels in any style. It will move to the next level to get better.
It is a low power to learn and then choose a more upscale model. This bass will be a great second bass!

OVERALL OPINION

Increased very quickly in my hands, this bass is very well suited for beginners who can get their hands on the cheap!
This bass is very easy to play in all styles, fingers, slap, mediator, is its strong point. It will encourage beginners to advance.
