Sepultura Tour 2018

Ibanez Ashula

New video: Hybrid Bass – Ibanez Ashula

Linus Klausenitzer:

„In this video I play and speak about the Ibanez Ashula – a new 7 string hybrid bass by Ibanez.
Some people might remember that I played the first version of this bass already in a video when I was introduced to Obscura. This is now the second version with even one string more. It has an amazing new look and specially the fretless part was improved a lot. The piezo pickup makes the fretless strings sound super smooth. I am glad that Ibanez never stop to come up with great ideas for new basses.
The amazing Franck Hermanny made a virtuous video playing the bass already so I tried to speak a bit about the options that this bass has to offer and show its different sounds.
I hope you enjoy the video!
For more information about the bass, please visit the Ibanez website!“
