A little workaround, and good to go.

Kata, 22.06.2018
I have an acoustic db and I love it, however I needed something else for difficult circumstances, like bad transport organized gigs, loud and noisy stages (feedback issues), silent practice, easy rehearsal transportation etc.
The solution is EUB, and the solution in good quality isn't cheap. I tried the self-standing EUB things (NS), but i just felt them like an upright fretless bass guitar.

Finally I bought this Palatino copy two years ago and I love it. The look and woodwork are nice, usually all bandmates love the the black shiny finish. It stands like a real DB, has weight, resonance, everything similar to a real DB and the problems described above are solved. However...

I was experimenting a lot to get the nice sound. The electronics are noisy, the strings must be replaced asap, the fretboard had to be refined. The tuning pegs are weak for more tense strings, but still working, no damage yet.
I replaced the bridge and the tailpiece with a real DB parts (cut and reshape woodwork). I also rewired the electronics, now it's passive, I use it with pre-amp, and the sound is really close to a real DB. The scale is a bit shorter as on my 3/4 acoustic one, but it's still acceptable.

In all: if you are looking for the same instrument I did, you are on low budget and you like tinkering, this is your solution.

E-double bass

Attila R., 17.01.2015
I was totally satisfied with this instrument. In this price range, I think it's the best solution what I've found. First of all, the bass really nicely painted and finished. It looks like a serious instrument. The bridge under the strings has a variable height. It is really useful when you set up the correct distance. The pick-up has strong and dark sound. I use with a Marshall bass combo. The fingering on the board is really comfortable. Like a well adjusted double bass. The tuning screws are OK too. The instrument has a spike to stand on it, with variable height too. You can connect headphones to the bass directly. It's useful for the silent practicing. The sound quality depends on the bass combo too, but the instrument has a good resonance.
