Bass is awesome - if not to try to squeeze out the sounds that have not been invented at the time of its design. Trimontsium voice has a certain charm. Yes, he can boast sustain and depth, which is understandable for a short scale length of mensure (760 mm), but it sounds very elastic and clear. It is clear that the peak frequency response lies in the middle of the bottom, and the exhaust sensor is weak, but for the modern instrument of rock'n'roll , big and easy bit, rhythm and blues, this Orfeus fits great. And at least, the famous "click" it is able to deliver without any booster. And what old-school exterior!
