great active bass

I bought one, because I needed something cheap with active pickups for studio use. I could not have been more ecstatic when I plugged it in and heard the tone for the first time. This bass has a huge range of tone, and the bass boost nob packs a giant punch when running direct. I have only ran it through an amp a few times, and was still impressed with the tone. I highly recommend this bass for any studio. Also, has a nice feel to it. Not too heavy, and a smaller fretboard for my guitar hands. For the price, this is a perfect instrument.


I can't believe how great this bass is for the price. It sounds perfect in BEAD tuning. Great price, tone, look, everything.

Defective Out of the Box

I unpacked this and found the frets were never properly sanded down. The first five frets buzzed and sounded dead. I repacked it and sent it back.
