I have played bass in the past and I am primarily a guitarist. This is the first bass I have bought and I love it, I can not put it down, and the lower end is incredable, specially on the B string. I am pleased with this bass
I bought this bass after 2 times trying it out...and I must say I am pretty impressed. It's great for the value and it plays great for slap/pop style.
I picked mine up used for about half price. I was replacing my GSR200. It had a nick or 2 and a scratch but was in overall good shape. It must have been set up because the action is perfect and it is a dream to play. The passive pickups are amazing and the active EQ is basically the same as my GSR. Bright highs and thunderous lows. The B string does rattle a bit but it doesn't interfere with the sound. I run it with a PD7 overdrive pedal and can pretty much get whatever sound I want out of it. It's definitely brought my playing to a new level. And the transparent black is a beautiful finish. I highly recommend the new ergodynes.
It's a good bass. The B string is kinda floppy, the sound is pretty good overall, but I fell that from time to time the Highs are too bright, and the low end isnt defined enough.It's fairly versatile, It has great slap tone, and if you want a good fingerstyle sound the middle pickup soloed works wonders too.The neck is nice and thin... I'd advice you to try it for yousrself before you buy It, I bought it without trying it, and while I cant say Im dissapointed I wish I wouldv tried it before and compared it to others.One thing: The Metal they build the hardware with is extremeley soft.ooh, and, the Phat EQ is great, for those of you that like me when I got it, have no Idea what the Phat EQ is, it's a single Bass and Treble Boost knob. It's pretty good for slapping, and thought I dont slap alot, I usually never turn it down.
This was a very good bass when I first got it. I bought it from a little guitar shop in Mississippi, and it played very well for about 3 months. After that, the hardware on it started to break a little, so the knobs aren't sturdy at all. Other than that, it is a very great bass, and it plays marvolously.
The Ibanez EDB405 is great for a musician's first or second bass. Good sustain, although the B-string can be incredibly floppy at times. I've always played it with my Peavey Hypervent amplifier at all my gigs. It usually gets the job done, but is not necessarily the best to use for bass solos.
This thing is incredible! It plays like a dream. The stock strings make it sound very harsh and metallic but I love the sound with steel flatwounds. It looks great too!
