A good budget bass

Michael W. 151, 23.05.2017
Due to neck problems, I needed a more manageable bass - short-scale was called for. I looked around, tried some and decided on the Talman.

Finish and quality are very good and it is a very good player with a similarly good sound - the pickups are fine and I don't feel the need to upgrade them.

However, especially given my reason for buying the bass, it is a neck diver in a big way. I've deducted a star from 'Quality' for this reason alone.

To alter the balance, I fitted Schaller Light heads (recommended but 2L+2R aren't sold by Thomann) and a Schaller 3D bridge (which is sold by Thomann). At ¤140 for the extras, that almost doubles the price of the bass - but it is now a very nicely balanced bass.

So, I now have an excellent short-scale bass that has a great, punchy sound but is not light on the bass end.

I can recommend the bass, no doubt, but buyers should be aware of the balance problem.

Separately, Thomann's usual amazing service made buying from them a pleasure.

Brilliant!

01.10.2016
I was looking for a bass that wasn't as big and clunky as others, but also had enough pickups to really be able to play with the tone, and this does that brilliantly!
There wasn't a lot of stuff online about this bass, but if you're looking for a smaller bass that sounds and plays just as good as bigger ones, then this is for you. It seem quite underrated, honestly.
It also keeps tune. Like, it just keeps tunes. What more can you ask for?
Would recommend for beginners to intermediates, as by the time you get to pro you'll already know what you want and have bigger better basses to play with, but until then, this will satisfy the funk perfectly.
