Many expectations and some ceptions ...

PV NOVA, 17.06.2011
The B-Bass arouses enormous waiting ... Normal when it is announced as THE bass of the beginnings of Paul Mac Cartney! Yet the instrument clearly lost its superb.
When unpacking, the label "Made in Indonesia" is quite scary and we suddenly understand why its price is so low. The finish leaves a lot to be desired: a plastic assembly of which one can doubt the solidity.
Let's go to the real test: amplification. New disappointment: the bass is badly adjusted and sounds false from the fifth box; A real plague for a musician who does not know how to adjust his instrument! Fortunately there are quite a few possible combinations to correct these problems of accuracy. So we can finally make it sound. With all the settings thoroughly the sound becomes really interesting, very different from quite a lot of bass. By playing the Beatles' songs, it is surprising to recognize a truly particular sound.
Finally, considering its price, you end up thinking that this bass is still worth the shot!

Black Ignition zndet!

potomac, 21.02.2011
Great shipping service to the outside of Europe, compliments to Thoman, I am very satisfied. The bass is a licensed copy of the lutey Beatles bass, which can be seen only on the third view since it is also produced under the name Höfner in Indonesia and the Höfner lettering in Abalone on the headstock. It gibz really only small things to complain, which I will list here briefly but first times to the positive sides:

+ The piano black lacquer is very noble and well executed, the bass looks elegantly elegant.
+ The white bindings on the ceiling and the floor make the bass look great and together with the White Pearl pickguard, control panel and tuners they give a design as in a Sunday suit.
+ The chrome parts like pickups and tailpiece add to this impression, the bass radiates a certain reliability.
+ The shortscale format with good string position and the low weight make it easy to play and is ideal as a companion for long evenings.
+ The sound is at home wherever you do not want to be rocked or metal sounds are in demand. Especially jazzy, bluesy and beatsounds are his strength, sometimes as a light double bass substitute, sometimes as a Latin jazz accompanist, then as a beat basis or with well-groomed dance music, also suitable for the Blues session. It harmonizes perfectly with unplugged instruments or in country style.

- The Pear White wings of the mechanics fit perfectly to the design, but look close up but cheap, because badly shed and not reworked.
- The cover of the Truss Rod is cheap and unclean with the type designation imprinted.
- The controls of the electronics are not stale and much more unsightly than the original.

All these few negative details are however with a few Euros eliminated and I would actually give because of the exemplary price / performance ratio 5 stars.

The supplied Thomann case also exceeded my expectations.
