Very variable

14.01.2016
The sound is actually almost identical (relative volume) between active and passive (when the tone controls are set neutral).
The deep H-string is concise and clear and clean (!) To hear.
The tone control is very variable and covers almost every area.
The instrument hangs well on the good and is considerably lighter than my Yamaha BB N5A.
The playability drops slightly against the BB.
From the weight he comes close to so many 4-Saiters.
A head-to-headness, if at all, is to be found only slightly.

Depending on the price, the lacquering is optimized at one point or another.

The mechanics are close to the Japan models and are very easy to operate.
The narrower neck is also something for smaller hands.
All in all a very good value for money and thus a recommendation,

I have been with you for 6 months and I am happier.

28.06.2016
So first is a bass that goes through the eyes. It has a very nice body, characteristic of Yamaha to which the white color gives much life.
Very good finishes, a sliding mast super good and very comfortable.
The first few days is a bit heavy but over time your back is accustomed (in addition there are few basses that weigh little)
It has very good sustain and a very versatile sound. The three-band equalizer and active / passive switch allows you to play with the sound and adapt it perfectly to the sound you want your instrument to play. Both the active and passive pickups are super-sticky and have a very good grip and if you know how to play with the eq, you can get a super aggressive sound.
The only fault I put is that the "bone" is pure plastic, which if you change for one in conditions, would get better sound but of course, for the price you can not ask for more.
Totally recommended, although I know that if you are thinking of buying it you will doubt much what color to choose.
