This bass is my best friend
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
First, this bass is awesome. I get a lot of compliments on the look of it. I felt ridiculous playing it at first because it is a stick on a pole, but quickly got past that once I played a few shows and heard the feedback from folks who genuinely enjoyed it.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Overall it's built very well. Everything that can break on the gig bag has broken (plastic strap parts, zipper pulls) but they are easy fixes. The bass itself also feels like the tuners are going to fall out. They don't, but they are slanted. I've tried re-tightening them into place but that's just the way they are going to be.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
I would like to adjust the angle of the bridge but it's part of the bass. The best you can do is raise and lower it, but it's not like a traditional upright where you can shave a different shape. This isn't a breaking point for me, as it does not inconvenience playing arco. There is enough of a curve to play comfortably.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The controls (all 2 of them) are right in front of you the whole time. The knobs feel sturdy and don't make a horribly noise when you move them. The neck feels great, the scale of the bass is spot on.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I've played this through a few amps and have been able to find a great tone in all of them. 25w 8", 300w 4x10 cab, some expensive 2x12 cab, some other bands backlined amps. I use a boss me-50b with a flat eq, a soft compressor and helicore hybrids and it cuts through the mix with it's higher frequency definition while thumping out low end. This is a high output instrument, so if anything you are constantly trying to stop it from overloading the first item in your chain. Also, the entire bass is a pickup, so any taps or movement can be heard right through your amp. Just be careful with it. I've not heard the floor through it (as in, feedback from things around me). I'm considering a standard upright bridge pickup as a 2nd option for tone so I am not battery dependent.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I went for this because it had the best reviews for 1. what it was and 2. the price. It's not a $1400 bass, but it's also not a POS. It's quite decent and if this is your $700 introduction into upright, you're going to get your value for it.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Out of the box it is decently set. It needed a bit of adjustment to get it to where it was near Rufus Reid's bridge dimensions (the E string being further away from the fingerboard than the G string) and the strings the bass comes with are purely pizz. strings. I saved them as backups, but they aren't doing you any favors to keep them on.
