OVERVIEW

Step into a new world of musical exploration.

Much in the vein of classic sports car ethos, the SRKP4 is sleek, yet simple. Muscular, yet agile. Turbo charged by the Mini Kaoss Pad 2, this is the perfect vehicle for any level of aptitude, any style of playing, or any musical genre.

The SRKP4 includes a built-in/detachable Mini Kaoss Pad 2 to create an instrument that offers bassists endless opportunities to incorporate the exhilarating effects of EDM into their performance. A Kaoss Pad 2 back panel, positioned just below the bass volume control, is integrated into the body of this SR style bass for quick, secure docking and easy access to the touch pad interface for real-time manipulation. The Mini Kaoss Pad 2 features 100 effect programs, a synthesizer, built-in mp3 player.

The SRKP4 bass features a slim Maple neck, for clear definition, and a Mahogany body for a warm, rich tone. Electronics include a specifically designed IBZ-KP pickup (a high-output, twin-blade Humbucker for low noise operation) and a built-in distortion circuit with its own on/off switch and Tone/Gain controls.

Built-in Distortion
The SRKP4 comes with on-board high-gain distortion, accessible at the flip of a switch. Fire it up with or without the Mini Kaoss Pad 2 in line to get you to that certain sound you're looking for.

Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2
The SRKP4 comes equipped with Korg's latest Kaoss introduction-the Mini Kaoss Pad 2, loaded with 100 dynamic KAOSS effects.

Headphone Output Jack
Play when and where you want, using the 1/8" stereo headphone jack located next to the main output.

      Comments about Ibanez SRKP4 with Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I got this as a stupid deal for about 50% of the regular price. That's less than the price of a new mini Kaos Pad, so my expectations of value for my money were pretty reasonable.

      I started having problems with the electronics cutting out almost immediately. Eventually it would only work when the distortion circuit was on. Also, all the pots, switches and jacks were loose out of the box. The two might be related, I don't know. Also also, the control cavity cover was cut too large and almost impossible to remove. I had to sand it down to get it back in.

      Integration of the two pieces is pretty bad. The bass essentially has an effects loop with the Kaos pad connected with patch cables. The down side of the pad is that batteries only last 2 or 3 hours in it, and they die suddenly.

      The good news is that I removed all the stock electronics from the bass and wired it up with a normal passive circuit. The bass sounds great now, and is very light and comfortable. Being essentially the same instrument that Ibanez sells for 175, I'm more than satisfied by the quality of the bass. Had to knock down a good amount of fret sprout, as to be expected with a sub-200 bass, but that only took a few minutes.

      The Kaos Pad, separated from the bad preamp/loop/distortion circuit, works exactly as it should. Battery life isn't an issue now that I can plug it in and use it for other things.

      I appreciate that it shipped with a separate back plate for the pad in addition to the one glued to the bass so I can use it separately.

      For the price I paid, I'm satisfied that I got two separate pieces that are useable separately. I wouldn't be if I had wanted to use them together. Or if I had paid anywhere near the original price. Or if I didn't know how to solder, sand and fix instruments.

        Good action out of the box the only con is the booket teaching how to use the mini kaoss could be much better I learned some on you tube. The younger people in worship band like the distortion sound of the pickup that can be turned on an off

        Comments about Ibanez SRKP4 with Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 Electric Bass Guitar:

        Tone wise, a lot of options. I expected the kaos pad to be more fully integrated though. Think of it as an add on to you bass signal, not something so much that your bass signal is passed thru. I purchased as the stupid deal of the day for the cost of the pad so great deal. Bass itself is incredibly light and sounds decent. Frets needed to go finished when I got it, and serious neck adjustment.

          Comments about Ibanez SRKP4 with Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 Electric Bass Guitar:

          I've got other Ibanez guitars, and I love electronic music so this was a no brained for me. You can add samples, drum tracks, or whatever you want to the kaoss pad which makes it pretty versatile. The effects are great, but this is not an effect processor if you are wondering! The effects run only when the pad is being utilized. Overall, I'm stoked about this purchase!

          Comments about Ibanez SRKP4 with Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 Electric Bass Guitar:

          First impressions: The bass has a good weight and feel. the pickup sounds beefy but there is no dedicated tone control or EQ. The on-board distortion is not so good, rather raspy, but sounds okay through headphones. Also I can see why they put built-in raspy distortion as the effects of the Kaoss on the bass are more interesting and expressive with the distortion. Without it many effects sound so-so.

          The Kaoss: As expected, some effects just don't jive with bass guitar. I found the rhythmic stuff like LFO Filter, Slicer and the Looper effects fun and interesting. The Vinyl Stop is cool. The Fuzz effect is nice. Some effects can make it sound like an odd synth patch and good for trippy random noise etc.. The problem of course is playing and touching the Kaoss pad simultaneously. Generally, unless purposely playing sustained notes, you have to find a good spot on the Kaoss screen and put it on hold and play. But you have to practice where to touch or you might get unwanted burble. Some effects can work well just by sustaining a note on the bass and rhythmically tapping the effect on and off.

          There are internal factory DJ type grooves on the Kaoss and it's fun to jam along, so you can see the potential of putting a memory card with your own wav files or MP3s in there. I happened to have a 2 Gig Micro SD around and it worked fine. Even successfully downloaded and installed the latest KP2s firmware. One thing I found a bit a bothersome was that both the bass and internal MP3s are effected when using the Kaoss pad seem you can't leave one or the other un-effected. As such, it can be limiting creatively as you might prefer at times to use different effects for the bass then the grooves, or just effect the bass, or just the grooves. I'm thinking it would be best to use an external groove machine into a separate Kaoss Pad, which I already have, and just use the Kaoss on the bass, for the bass.

          Maybe attach the iPhone on the bass, merge audio and run the Kaossilator app?
