I love this bass. There is nothing that it can't do. When I got it I only played it in regular tuning, playing rock and pop punk. It sounded great. Now I'm playing hardcore and metalcore in drop C, yes drop C. It sounds even better. The EQ on the bass makes it growl amazingly. The 24 frets are all usable.The only thing that this bass could have that it doesn't would be a switch to go from active pickups to passive if your battery dies, but that's not a big issue.
The title says it all. The Ibanez SR900 is truly an amazing instrument, especially for a bass under $1,000. The neck is very slim, like a Jazz bass, and has a somewhat similar, but much more beefy, tone. The Bartolini pickups and preamp belt out lots of delicious tones suitable for all styles of music, from a griding, thick metal tone to a huge, round dub thump, the SR900 does it all. The action is nice and low, like it should be, and the bridge is easily adjustable. This bass also has a "tummy contour," which is when the body curves to fit around a belly.You will not be disappointed in this bass; I couldn't find any real problems with it. Happy playing.
A great sounding bass, strong output, nice thin neck that's super easy to play, good balance with a small body. Now no longer available but sought after: Neck thru, string through active bartolini pick ups. I have used and owned many basses and this is my favourite. See-thru black finish is awesome
I have owned this bass for about a year now and still (and I hope always will) play like it did the day I tried in the store. The 24 frets are very easy to access, and it has a thru neck, which I look for in a bass. As an added bonus it has Bartolini pickups, which is always good. This is a great bass with a great tone for any style and can be used for practicing in a living room or in a gig.
I made a discovery on the bass I cant use GHS bass boomers on this bass for the fact the strings arent magnetic enough for the pickups used in this bass.. I use D'addario prosteels on them which solves this problem.Anyway this bass has a fast neck,sleek neckthrough body which fits nice for us players with a belly he he! Great sounding bass as well.
I managed to get it price matched down to 700 at my local music shop, but even if if was a grand I would have paid it. It was between this and a Music Man. The Ibanez was slightly cheaper, but what did it was when I first picked it up. This bass is the perfect fit: light, sleek, sounds great, and easy to play. The bartolini pickups sound great! This bass is perfect for any style, weather your laying back to some light jazz, or if your dropping to D.
I fell in love with this bass when I saw it. The body of this bass is concave, and fits against the player?s body very comfortably. The neck is long and smooth, 24 frets are easily navigated all the way up top. This bass has a powerhouse set of active pick-ups and with the low, mid, hi, volume, pickup controls... this bass is an extremely versatile instrument!
I played this bass today at a store and I was amazed. The SR900 is the most playable instrument I have ever played. All the frets are easily accessible which is a huge issue with quite a few other basses. The neck is fast and the action is better than any other. It played better than a Rickenbacker 4003, a deluxe Fender Precision bass, a fretless Fender jazz bass, and even a $3800 custom bass that was there. Playability is through the roof. I was so impressed by how well it played that I didnt pay too much attention to sound but it has Bartoloni pickups so you can be sure that it sounds good. My only issue with it is that there are no solid colors available. What ever happened to plain black without any goofy patterns? If you dont mind that then you must have this bass.
I got a deal on this bass at a local shop. It was 'more' bass than I wanted or needed to buy, but I am so glad I did. The SR900 is a top-notch intstrument, inspiring to play, with amazing and versatile sound. While it has many similar features as the cheaper SR500, the improvements over that model really kick it up the ladder: neck-thru construction, maple body, through-body stringing, more durable finish. The SR900 has incredible sustain and tone-- piano-like, clear, full, but able to get edgy and dirty. Definitely a 'modern' bass sound. The Bartolini electronics give ample opportunity to shape the sound. Works great for most musical styles--rock, jazz, country, etc. I'm not a slapper so I can't speak to that. Ibanez did a great job with this one.
