I Survived Real Estate 2008 – Part 5

ESP B 206 bass Featuring

This is a video of me trying / playing with my new bass. It’s an LTD ESP B-206 6 sting bass. In this video I playdifferent tipes of music so you can see how is the quality of the sound and all the kinds of equalisations that you can have. Why should you buy this bass ? Because: Its 6 strings with 24 fretts, so you have all the notes you can imagin 🙂 Is has a 3 band active equalisation, so you can have different sounds Its a cheep bass for the quality it has Has a beautifull bass with maple satin top I think is one of the cheepest 6 string bass WITH AWESOME QUALITY in the market. (because you know there are those Ibanez basses, ond other shitty brands xD) If you are thinking in buying a bass like this one I recomend you to do it, you can have any sound you want, with the equalizer you can make this bass sound “like” a Fender Jazz bass, can have funky sound, or if you like metaal somehing more heavy. PD: The sound isn’t the best one but is for you to check it out. I’ll upload later more videos of the songs I play in this one but with better quality (:
