Clear sound and good finish

Pipas, 28.06.2014
Sound (acoustic): Versatile, stand out in treble, where you can play chords like a classical guitar. It is a bit more complicated than an electric one to avoid fouling, it requires a more precise tread on the mast, but thanks it with a balanced sound. Media and serious defined and forceful thanks to the large soundboard that has. A good option to accompany a small room or even playing in a square or street.

Sound (preamp): Fishman is a guarantee, with the incorporating EQ you can find your sound fast. They surprise the bass that you get on the table, without losing the definition in media and treble when we do not plug it in. You can get a better and more natural sound by connecting it directly to the table without going through an amplifier.

Aspect: It is not the same to see it in the photo than to have it in front, it has a good presence and although in black it may seem a little bland in the visual, the bone finishes, the chrome of the keys and the incrustation of the mast give a nice aspect to the instrument . Original Florentine cutaway, which also provides comfort.

Finishing: For the price, very good. There are no major defects, they are checked by a professional of the mark and do not let anything happen, there are no jumps in the body with the mast or roughness, although the blade nut has corners without rounding and it can be uncomfortable to meet With it in serious, easy to solve.

Comfort: You can not have a serious bass if not with a large box, which is what incorporates this bass. It makes something uncomfortable for the right hand at the beginning, since the box hangs the arm of it and must be adapted, which does not cost much effort. The biggest problem of the bass is the hook of the front strap, that playing in treble you find it. It will let you play, but at first notice it upset a bit.

Extras: Comfortable, elegant and well finished synthetic leather strap, it fits well with the bass. The sheath it brings to carry it is not only comfortable and beautiful but it protects very well the instrument with lots of padding and several grips to prevent it from moving.

Advantages: Versatile sound, good finish, good accessories. Taking bass from preamp and with a micro in the box for media and treble is very difficult to find a better sound.

Disadvantages: Uncomfortable in the treble by the hook of the belt, the nut is not rounded and in serious we can get in the way.

Conclusion: Good instrument for the price that costs to acquire it, if you only played electric until now you have a few days ahead to adapt without problem. Is a good acoustic bass, has nothing to envy to an electric 1500-2000?, You can see.

Reasonable

Klaus211, 29.04.2012
The bass has an excellent, rich sound. It is a bit thicker, of course affects the volume. A really rich sound that looks the same. Value for money: fully in order. I use the bass also with my Roland Cube, and am also fully satisfied. The bag, which is included in this bass by Ortega, is also well-made and protects the bass completely from external influences due to the thick padding. However, the leather belt is also worth mentioning.

My final judgment: unreservedly recommendable.
