How do they do it for the price?

CappuccinoKris, 13.03.2018
The HB bass is Thomanns's own brand. How they make a thru neck for this price is beyond me. It is well built and rugged and surprisingly light but not in a detrimental way. The finish is great and the matt look on this will appeal to anyone who likes a natural look rather than a high gloss finish. The finish isn't perfect, with one or two minor imperfections, mine has a small crack near the battery compartment but you really have to look to see it, but you can't expect perfection on an instrument this good for this amount of money.

It plays well and was we'll set up on arrival. I've just changed the strings to flat wounds and the small alterations i had to make to the bridge were quick and easy. It has 24 frets, great intonation and keeps tuned well. The action is great and the frets sit nicely with no problems. The socket clicks a jack into place firmly and will ideally suit a right-angle plug. The 9v battery compartment is well designed and the tuners move without effort. The simplicity of the bridge makes adjusting it really easy although I didn't need to until I changed strings. It looks beautiful, is well made and the centre-notched treble, bass and pickup mix controls, along with the volume, have a great feel. The pickups are powerful and sound great with only minor EQ adjustments needed.

It comes shipped with the Allen keys for the bridge and neck and fitted with D'Addario roundwounds.

A great all round bass with a jazzy feel. You won't find better in this price range.

Buy this bass!

Christopher9009, 29.01.2014
Being a beginner bassist, I was on the prowl for my first 'professional' bass guitar, and when I first saw this I was amazed at the design, and at that price it seemed almost too good to be true. Once it arrived, I was impressed with the sleek body and thin neck, with some quality strings with it... There was only problem.
Yes, there is one thing, the electronics cover plate is badly fitted. Although this was a disappointment, especially given that it passed a QA inspection, I did not think it merited sending it back, as I can fix it myself.

The wood finish is as good as it looks in the pictures - solid but light, well balanced, a joy to play, genuinley impressive, great handling and playability with a thin fast neck... Everything about it oozes quality, and at this price, it is a steal!
