Silver Forest Bass


Dah nak dekat sebulan baru aku sempat buat entri ringkas bergambar pasal bass baru aku ni.

Kotak yang beralamat dari Crinson Music ini diterima pada 1/4/2013 lepas. Pastinya berisi sebuah bass ESP (sebenarnya LTD je) untuk menggantikan Silverado aku yang dah di"let-go" seminggu sebelumnya. Ikut pengalaman tahun lepas, mesti ada sebuah bass dalam axology aku. You won't know when you'll need it badly.

Ironinya, empat buah bass aku sebelum ini semuanya Ibanez (GSR190J, ICB200EX, GSR200EX, GARTB20) dan kali ni aku keluar dari khemah tidak memilih Ibanez...


ESP LTD F-54 SS (silver satin) - Ini merupakan model paling cikai kasta bawah untuk bass daripada F-series (Forest), dan mulai 2013 ia tidak lagi disenaraikan dalam website ESP tapi masih ada dalam website ESP UK (click link for specifications).


Bass berbentuk Forest sebegini dipopularkan oleh Tom Araya, Henkka Blacksmith, James MacDonough, Dorris Yeh, Orion, Apollyon dan Jairo(?).

F-54 ni merupakan buatan China sekitar April 2008 (berdasarkan nombor siri), model F-1xx dan ke atas mungkin buatan Indonesia.

34" scale.
Sememangnya bass F-series (F-104) pernah menjadi idamanku suatu ketika dahulu, waktu aku baru mula-mula berkecimpung dalam dunia bass.

Standard LTD 12th fret model mark.
Silver satin (SS) finish.
Kelebihan
  1. Ringan, lebih ringan daripada Mirage aku.
  2. Non-glossy silver satin finish.
  3. Mempunyai preamp ESP ATB-1 active tone boost.
  4. Hanya mempunyai satu pikap sahaja (juga menjadi kelemahan).
  5. Full 24-fret.
  6. Matching headstock.
ESP SB-4 solitary passive pickup, ESP DB-4 Bridge
Kelemahan
  1. Ada sedikit cela pada kemasan (finish) cat.
  2. Hanya mempunyai satu pikap sahaja, memang "worst-case scenario" kalau pikap ni rosak waktu tengah jamming atau gig.
  3. ATB-1 yang tak berapa boost, tak boleh lawan preamp Phat-II Ibanez.
  4. Ruang bateri yang susah diakses, perlu dibuka dengan pemutar skru.
Kaviti untuk elektronik.
Dengan sedikit modifikasi (tambah sticker COBHC), mungkin boleh nampak seperti macam bass Henkka Blacksmith.

Ruang bateri yang ringkas.
ESP ATB-1 Active Tone Boost.
Preamp ESP ATB-1 (kotak hitam) yang ada pada bass ni macam ala kadar sahaja, cukup-cukup untuk boost bunyi bass. Tidak seperti preamp Phat-II yang ada pada kebanyakan bass Ibanez kasta bawah.

Tanpa preamp ni, aku rasa bunyinya lebih teruk daripada bass yang tidak mempunyai preamp disebabkan isipadu kayu yang kurang (sebab tu ringan). Kalau ada rezeki lebih, teringin juga nak gantikannya dengan preamp AT2 (made in *Yustechland), tak perlu tukar pikap, hanya perlu tukar preamp.

Oh ya, juga disertakan dengan pembelian sampingan (collateral purchase?) iaitu kabel Fender Californian 10 kaki (~3 meter) dengan warna kegemaran surf green, dan hadiah percuma sebungkus tali gitar berjenama D'Addario (of course in 9-42, my favourite gauge).


Sebelum ini aku memiliki kabel yang sama tapi versi 15 kaki (~5 meter), selepas menggunakannya beberapa kali semasa jamming dan gig, aku rasa ia agak terlalu panjang untuk perantaraan gitar dan pedal. Sebab itu aku memesan versi 10 kaki yang lebih sesuai. Versi 15 kaki agak sesuai digunakan untuk perantaraan pedal dan amp, atau jika hanya menggunakan amp (direct) tanpa sebarang pedal efek.

Failed pose.
Nickname? SILVER WINGS, enough said. Sempena tajuk lagu Bruce Dickinson. Harap-harap tiada lagi "gali lobang tutup lobang" untuk bass.

Selepas ini ada sedikit rombakan pada line-up Metuk Ulau Project, Korawk akan kembali menjadi gitaris manakala aku pula menggalas tugas bassist. Sebab itu perlu ada bass dalam axology aku seperti yang aku nyatakan pada awal entri. Masa untuk Silver Wings beraksi...

Ada apa: *Bro Yus, if you're reading this entry, I'll contact you later about the AT2.
