Cheap and good in general with some falws

Blaze Somber, 23.02.2018
Cheap and good in general with some falws


As a left-handed nonprofessional bassist on a rather low budget, this was almost the only one chance for me to get an acoustic bass, which I needed to my then band (Sunday Melancholy). It was worth buying it for that purpose. I would recommend it under similar circumstances.

Sound: The body is big enough (shallow but large) and made of good tonewood so the acoustic sound is better than what one could expect for the price. One big fault is that the piezzo pickup is either faulty or not well-calibrated, so E and G strings are much lower than A and D (A being extremely loud). I tried to have that fixed, but the bug is still apparent.

Pick-up system and controls: It has good features, 3-band EQ, an inbuilt chromatic tuner etc., but feels a little low quality with slobby knobs and unsteady EQ controls. Plus the above mentioned string imbalance.

Playability: The neck is pretty thick compared to my electric bass, but after you get used to it, it won't mean a problem to get around it comfortably. Here and there frets are a little bit edgy, but definitely not sharp.

Finish: It's on the good side, very nice and elegant, though there are some overflows of glue and inaccuracies in the binding, that for the thorough observer reveal it is a budget bass. The tuning pegs are good quality, but they were mounted slanted so this had to be corrected.

I bought this guitar back in 2014 when it still had the previous design, so the new version might be slightly different in the features and the quality of make.

Great bass, small price!

16.07.2014
For the money there is no better left handed acoustic bass available right now.

Even the stock strings feel nice which is something of a rarity for any bass I buy.

The set up right out of the box was fine, it shocked me for such a reasonably priced bass to be set up this well. The built in tuner is more than accurate enough and although I did not buy it to be plugged in and used live when I ran it though my amp I found the built in pre-amp to be very usable and very musical.

It is also very loud unplugged, I have played acoustic basses costing 10 times as much and they didn't have the unplugged volume this has.

It is still the bass I pickup most often, especially in the summer time while sitting out in the garden with a friend playing acoustic guitar.
