great quality affordable 5-string bass

Alex261, 03.06.2013
When I picked up the Ltd D5 I was pleasantly surprised with the level of quality this 5-string offers for such an affordable price.
I won't cover all the specs of this instrument, but the things I enjoy about the bass are the on board eq control, I use this when I feel in need of slight adjustments to compliment the eq on my laney rb9 amp.
This combined with 2 suprisingly great sounding active esp stock pick ups, and a blend knob, allows for a great amount of tonal control.
this level of control makes the bass incredibly versatile and with the right set up, sounds great with any playing style, from jazz to funk to death metal.
the merbau wood with satin finish is aesthitcally appealling, and the neck through body is an added bonus that makes a great deal of difference to the playability and tone of the instrument.
I purchased mine brand new in 2013, made in indonesia. I use this bass to perform live extensively with 2 bands, it has not let me down once!
overall my expectations were exceeded by this bass, the only thing I would like to improve would be to install higher quality active pick-ups but the stock esps are still impressive enough, and for the price you pay you are getting most features that only are available on much higher end models.
if I lost this bass I would buy it again and I recommend you do too, this bass offers more than other basses in its price range, and would make a good entry point for players new to 5 strings, and more experienced players alike.

A very good bass, not found in France

Franck H., 10.06.2011
I ordered this bass from Thomann after desperately looking for a supplier in France, to no avail.
Not very reassured to order such an instrument (necessarily fragile) by VPC, I was fortunately pleasantly surprised by the quality of the packaging. She arrived in very good condition. Phew.
Bass 5 active 5-button strings: bass + mid + treble, volume, micro bridge / center, requires a 9V battery in a rear slot.
The wood is beautiful. The varnish, a little dull at first, becomes shiny where you place your hand and fingers, it is almost a shame that this patina is not uniform over the whole body.
The mechanics are a bit too sensitive, so it is necessary to go very slowly for a perfect tuning, especially on the string of SI serious or the sensitivity of the mechanics is maximum.
The output level is a little low, much lower than a Cort passive action for example. With an amp that manages and corrects that, no problem.
The sound is just great. With a sleeve through, the sound is felt throughout the instrument and vibrates in unison.
Be careful to make all the settings (trustroad, tuning fork, strings action ...). I had to make a complete adjustment at the reception because the action was too low, the ropes were curling. After the adjustment, more worries, nickel sound and perfect ease of play.
After a few months, I made an adjustment that went a little in the opposite direction of the first (downhill of the action), because the wood had worked a little. This is not surprising when we know that the bass is made in Malaysia, made from tropical wood. The wood is alive and has to withstand changes in temperature and humidity.
For the price, it is a very beautiful instrument that sounds good, which presents very well (it arouses the curiosity of other musicians), and is a little "rare" in France because it is not imported.
Sure, it is a good choice that I would do without hesitation.
