Bass beginner

Peter5219, 15.05.2014
I find the Ibanez GSR180-BS to be exceptional value for money, and a delight to play. I really don't know how they do it at this price! Set up was great straight out of the box. It gives me pleasure every time I pick it up to play!

Ibanez simply stands for quality

elmiswelt, 25.02.2012
This bass is a very clean processed and very comfortable to play instrument. Of course, there are cheaper ways to play bass, but these are usually fraught with significant flaws. This usually leads to the fact that one quickly loses the desire for bass playing.
The Ibanez GSR180 is a very, very light instrument. Due to this and the successful body design, the hint of noticeable top-heaviness is very well balanced.
The Linde body delivers a very deep bassy tone, which can be very well varied by the volume and the tone pot.

Anyone who suspects a lack of sustain in such a light instrument will also be pleasantly surprised. Of course, there are other instruments that provide a much longer sustain, but these are usually not only three times as heavy - but also three times as expensive.
Nevertheless, I would call the basic sound as something percussive, but I like it very much.
The only thing that really (distractingly) catches the eye are the cheap pot buttons, but these are really easy and cheap to exchange yourself.
A great instrument for beginners, a nice second bass for advanced players (eg for the rehearsal room or for DI home recording) or a good starting point for further modifications.

Of course you have to leave the church in the village: For this price you can not of course compare the instrument with 2-3x so expensive instruments. This bass is certainly not a Rolls Royce, but in any case a VW Golf.
The rather variable sound possibilities are suitable for different music styles and the clean processing convinced.

My tip: Stay away from half the expensive instruments and prefer to strike right here. That can save a lot of trouble.

And please do not be surprised: The factory set Elixir strings stain at the beginning of something.
