near the perfetion - Reviews Ibanez SR3005E

Low japanese, aajou body, sleeve screwed wenge / bubinga 5-ply, wenge fretboard, 24 medium frets.
two soapbar bartolini US, electronica Ibanez Vari-mid (3-band parametric with medium).
round rather late, unvarnished.
short, a rather low 'modern'.
Finishing copy quality matéiaux derisory weight for a 5 string (3.8 kg).

UTILIZATION

first point ergonomics. true to say I've never played on a bass too comfortable! very light, super easy handle that plays the closed eyes, well designed body and all rounded nickel balance.
we can do better!

SOUNDS

both pickups are distinct characters. The preamp is a real massacre: settings react like clockwork, the parametric medium allows sulpter sound impressively, the dynamic is excellent. next to her on my preamp stingray is anemic ...

tampering with a bit we get to go out any sound of this bass, although large round coffee at slap singing through the big bass EQ cut metal with a V ... by against that demand for knowledge master hello preamp if the damage (sensitive and powerful settings).

OVERALL OPINION

used for a year, it's a crazy instrument I bought after testing a SR505 had me rather impressed (weight, ergonomics ...).
it is thought to play an instrument, both simple in design (shape rather "classic" sober finish) but very effective (preamp, microphone, ergonomics, weight, handle). a Swiss Army knife.
good it has flaws: Finishing rather fragile.

some find that the sound of the SR lack of personality, for me it is all the opposite, I find it rather they offer a rich and versatile sound palette for addressing all styles without any worries.

the coast of the SR is often very low (€ 500-700) which makes it super deal!
