k9vvs's review

By k9vvs, 15/05/2009
I tried it in rehearsal for a month on my amp ASHDOWN (abm evo II, 500) and a Fender (BXR 300), with a low and a rickenbacker Curlee. Then I put it back in its box telling me there was nothing like a good old cable ...
Being very very happy with my whole Ashdown (evo 500, 4x10, "a 15"), I have confidence in the brand and bought the FreeBass without trying. Error!

The +: ease of use.
16 presets that color the sound in different ways. (But is it then that one expects from a HF.)

the -: does not seem very sturdy (plastic receiver, rather slight, fragile-looking, ISSUER also looking fragile and very thin cable.).
In use, the device generates a lot of breath that you play more accentuated in the high midrange and treble.
The sound also seems to lose its brightness and extent over a cable.

Before buying it I had the opportunity to try a 40 and an AKG sennheiser freeport.

Value for money ?.... 331euros (Music Store) is still too expensive for what it is.

With the experence, I will not repeat that choice. By the way, fortunately I was able to return the unit to the store, I added a few tens of euros and took a Sennheiser EW 172 G3. And then ... There's no comparison. that's the stuff. it was my cable that I cleaned :-)

- How long have you use it?
REPEAT for two serious and is fluent in my two weeks!

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The +:
Easy to access, no need to record, volume control on the receiver, various models of its

the -:
a mute button difficult to access (2 / 3 sec on the select button), incorrect positioning of the transmitter on the belt: the obligation to put on jeans or risk seeing the thread ...) and especially a breath unbearable , tried on 3 amp (one aschdown) and 3 low, it is decidedly unbearable

HF noise is permanent, like the enormously hf but here it is even above some of my notes. depending on the chosen modulation is more or less important. the hf pert the connection quite often and he also swung my signal and not an effect that is not ...
remains a try with an equalizer but it's just lost ...

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
A shure, it's beautiful, it's good, aschdown is nevertheless a beautiful brand and amp are sublime still progress to HF ... lot of progress!

- How do you report qualitprix?
If he was up to my expectations, very well over 134.10 GBP soundlives, attention is sold with an adapter british is evil ...

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
If his height but silent ... l. surment not!
A very nice product, shame about useless .....
