Cult bass with problems

Ster, 18.07.2011
The cult bass with E-tail drop has something very special. The Korean processing is excellent, the setting too. And now to the problems: The signal was extremely quiet, which surprised me. Although there is no active circuit installed, passive PUs do not sound that quiet either. Because I wanted the EMG sound anyway, I installed two HBs and a BTC circuit. Only then did I notice the shortcoming. The "active shielding lacquer" causes problems. When I isolated the cutout, everything worked fine. The battery just has room in the cave, but it works as it should.

A second shortcoming was the extremely difficult voice. The screws were not oiled. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to vote with a hex key here. You have to reach for the Phillips screwdriver and then oil.

Too bad that the manufacturer is not on this bass, the headboard for double and single ball strings, as in the Synapse. The Gigbag is ok for gentle treatment, but nothing more.

Now I am satisfied with the instrument. It took me some time and effort to make it playable, but at the price you can not ask too much. Incidentally, the instrument including EMG electronics and PUs cost me less than the equivalent of Hohner. For tinkerer a recommendation.

How I like the XT-2 so much

Pedro B., 26.09.2012
, I decided to buy this one to use it live, since in addition to the features I already mentioned, add the "Drop Tuning" system to lower the tuning of the fourth string (Mi) to Re or Si, as desired. That is to say, that with a single movement of the lever, you directly change the tuning.
The system is very simple and effective, because once the string is tuned in Mi (with the lever lowered) and in Re or Si (with it raised), you just have to turn the top wheel to adjust the alternative tuning.
From there, it is very entertaining to play and change the tuning according to the style of music (those tones as serious as those of New Order and electronic music).
The only drawback is that the tone control has a defect, when you turn it to or from the bass position, it sounds a very annoying snap. This is obviously a manufacturing defect and the potentiometer must be replaced.
Here you can see a poor quality control by Steinberger - Gibson, also taking into account that these instruments are made in Korea.
