Thanks to the overall size of the Garrison, the natural acoustic voice of this bass is full and warm and that sound can be reproduced pretty accurately when using the onboard electronics.
The ATE-4 unit provides an expansive four-band equaliser as well as a volume control and has easy power pack access.
Pros: Classy presentation; great natural voice; powerful electronics.
Cons: Comes with only one strap button.
Despite the lacking strap-button, at this price the Garrison offers excellent value for money. The sound is huge and powerful so this is very gig friendly. But, of course, with that power comes the feedback Achilles heel that, as with all the models in this round-up, needs to be kept well in check.
