    Has anyone tried one of those? There's two on eBay right now (seeing one there is unusual enough)

    i liked the brian moores. lightweight, bright tone and pretty versatile electronics.
     
  3. My brother has one. I like it quite a bit. For the money, it's hard to beat. The construction is very good for a Korean instrument. I'd have to disagree somewhat with Dru though. To my ears, at least, the i4 has a somewhat warm tone, although it certaintly has the capability of getting bright. If you like a bass with as lot of midrange in the tone, then I would not recomend a Brian Moore. The other thing to keep in mind, is that the back of the neck is finished (which I am personally not crazy about).

    Overall I'd say that the i4/i5 is a great sounding bass that also looks unique, not to mention that it's nice and small and light.

    maybe i had the eq maxed out or something on the upper mids cause ive heard other people say its warm too. (which i would kinda prefer. i like jazz and "loungey" music) i need to play it again and give it a second opinion. I was pondering heavily whether to get it or not to replace my old klunky mexican jazz bass
