Endlich im Lowend Himmel ;-)
MARRAM , 15.11.2020
An der Gitarre ist alles gut, sie ist gut verarbeitet, toll bespielbar und hat einen Hammer Sound.
Musste noch ein bisschen rumwerken, bis die Oktavreinheit stimmte.
Für Gitarristen, die mit 7 Seitern so wie ich nicht klarkommen und im Lowend Bereich Sound Zuwachs gewinnen wollen, kann die Viper empfehlen.

Was für Männer...
Hans Hans, 30.07.2020
Baritone, ich wollte unbedingt eine Baritone 6-Saiter in Mahagoni und aktiven EMG 81/85 haben. Und das habe ich auch bekommen!
Sie kam als Retour mit Gebrauchtspuren, die sich allerdings nur auf die Saiten bezogen. Sehr gut eingestellt und vollkommen in Ordnung, keine Kratzer oder sonstiges, ich war positiv überrascht.
Habe die Gitarre auf Drop C gestimmt und schon beim Stimmen erfahren, wie sehr die Schwingung der Saiten (ohne Sound) sich durch den Hals über den Korpus bemerkbar machen. Eingestöpselt in AXE FX III und ein cleaner Sound erzeugt angenehm basslastige Klänge mit Obertönen, je nach PU unterschiedlich, der 85er klingt einfach nur wunderbar. Auf Higain Metal und 81er macht sich ein sehr amtlich fetter Tiefstimmer bemerkbar, der definiert und einfach nur powervoll klingt. Der 85er klingt im Higain nicht weniger energisch, jedoch mit mehr Bässe und weniger Höhen. Beide haben hier ihre volle Berechtigung, den Rest macht das Holz, Form und eben die lange Mensur. Aber die Gitarre will festgehalten werden (Ich spiele über einen breiten gepaddeten Ledergurt von HB), da sie sehr kopflastig ist. Wer damit nicht zurecht kommt, sollte sich die Viper nicht kaufen.

Positiv:
+Sound
+Bespielbarkeit
+Mechaniken

Negativ:
-Kopflastig

Très bon produit.
Eidunn, 24.06.2020
Étant guitariste avec un style Sludge Metal, j'ai utilisé des guitares au diapason standard pour des accordages graves pendant des années (Do standard ou Si standard). Aucun tirant de corde ni aucun réglage ne me convenait en terme d'ergonomie, de son et d'intonation.
J'ai donc décidé de passer sur une guitare baritone et j'ai choisit d'acheter celle-ci.
Je l'utilise avec un ampli Randall rd45 avec un son très dark. J'ai gardé le tirant d'usine (Daddario EXL158) en accordage B(Si) standard. On sent qu'elle pourrait être accordée bien plus grave sans problème. Je me suis habitué rapidement au diapason.
Les plus :
- Réglage parfait à la réception, rien à retoucher (excepté l'accordage évidemment).
- Superbe guitare, je n'en revenais pas quand j'ai ouvert le carton, finitions magnifiques.
- Micros actifs avec un son brillant très sympa (par rapport à mes autres guitares en tout cas -Ibanez RG et J5 telecaster-).
- Touché et ergonomie agréables.
Les moins:
- Léger déséquilibre, elle a tendance à piquer côté manche. À utiliser avec une bonne sangle.
