The basst! As shown in Fig.

01.03.2017
Three decades mainly Ibanez Soundgear - the time was just ripe for something completely new.

The choice fell on Ken Taylor due to the consistently positive ratings and the production location. After experiences with an esh Impact, I was curious to see if my neck and string spacing would lie. I bought it blindly in September 2016 and? So far ahead - that still does not regret a second.

The first impression: very clean workmanship, class-trained frets, impeccably varnished. Thoughtful equipment (belt pins also suitable for security locks, battery compartment without annoying fumbling, can be used without battery in the passive mode). The instrument is well-balanced and makes long samples and gigs possible. Factory setting: as expected with an instrument of this price class, perfect.

Playability: butterweich, this is really fun. I get much better than with the Soundgear necks.

Sound: insane variable (effective 3-band electronics), powerful and very effective. I prefer the gritty version and there he makes a very very good figure (I had because of the name so not necessarily expected). After all, I have to attack a 7-string with Drop G tuning and had often problems with locating me. Everything is clearly defined, the H-string never sounds spongy. I still play an SR705, a K5 and an esh Impact V, but to my Sandberg none of the above mentioned.

The string selection is (unfortunately) a bit limited, since for the KT probably max. 128 H strings are recommended, otherwise it may be necessary to unpack the file and edit the saddle. Meanwhile I play Marleaux 5 light and am quite satisfied.

Noise: in humbucker mode not at all, barely perceptible in singlecoil mode. So also in the field of electronics best processing.

Conclusion: he has inspired me from the first moment and still does it now. The b? I never again, definitely. Very clear purchase recommendation!

PS: possibly the appropriate Flightcase in the budget plan. That makes sense. The Gigbag included in the basic equipment is nice, but as an effective protection of an instrument of this price class is only conditionally suitable.
