more than expected

paulyoo, 26.04.2017
I bought the instrument purely based on the reviews and I have to say that I am not disappointed. I play various genre from rock to funk to gospel.

Build:
Construction seem very solid. The tobacco sunburst seem to have a darker tone than I've expected but it is beautiful. The bridge is suppose to be the standard bridge that comes with pretty much every other bass but seems a bit beefier. Nothing rattles and everything seem to fit very well and tight. The fret work is good, nothing needs to be filed down or adjusted. No cracking pots and all the electronic works as intended.

Comfort:
The instrument weighs about 9 lbs, under 10 lbs for sure. No neck dive and it is well balanced. I'm used to playing MTD and I believe the neck feels comparable.

Tone:
Playing through the Harke Kickback12, the bass produces very clear, standard jazz tone with nice, not overpowering, growl to it when played in the passive mode. In the active mode, I don't think I can do much justice with words since there are too many possibilities. The boost and cuts on all treble/mid/bass has produced expected tone without distortion.

Con:
My only complaint is the knobs. It just floats and I can see the metallic components between the knob and the body. The instrument would've been much cleaner if the knobs covered all the way to the body. Additionally, the passive/active switch is located very close to the mid and bass knob. I wish it was closed a bit farther away so I wouldn't touch the knobs when I'm toggling the switch.

Conclusion:
Excellent instrument.

The Hype Is real and Confirmed

03.10.2016
If you have heard about these basses before you will know the Low End community has gone crazy since their release, with a hype I have never seen before in relation to basses.

Now, to the review:

Features wise, this bass is the single most versatile bass I have ever laid my hands on or even seen. The Passive mode sounds good on its own but the brilliance of the bass comes with its 18v pre-amp, which brings punchy and full sounding tone with immense versatility.

Tone/Sound wise, I can tell you its a balanced, deep and punchy sound. The low end is neat and deep, the mids clear and sharp, the highs cut through well enough without being overpowered. Only gave it a 4* because it still doesn't sound like a £1500-2000 fender which is 3/4 times the price. For the price it offers, the tone is definitively 5*.

Quality of the build is where this thing has surprised me the most. Very VERY professional looking and feeling bass, set up almost perfectly on arrival, just needs some intonation work, action wise its perfect. The D'Addario strings are actually really nice too!

TL;DR- Just buy the thing already!
