Bien construido, suena bien
RBPmusic, 29.06.2020
Después de haber tenido varios bajos de otras marcas y de precios similares, se ve que este modelo está hecho con otro nivel, tanto de materiales como de construcción. El sonido es muy versátil y se puede manejar con el previo incluido (De gran calidad). Me parece un modelo absolutamente recomendable.

Low price-to-quality ratio

I had high expectations on this bass, as it has received some very good reviews online. One aspect that has been mentioned in several reviews is that you get a lot of bass for the money. This is ironic, as I found the opposite to be true - at least with respect to my copy. I tried for weeks to get it to play right, adjusting the truss rod, bridge, intonation, etc. to no avail. It looked as if the neck was bent upwards where it attaches to the body. I might have been unfortunate to get the one and only copy that was missed in quality check last year - but that number from the factory should be nil.

Another aspect, which seems to be a more general problem, relates to the combined volume and tone knob. It was impossible to adjust the volume without also affecting the tone setting. This may disappear over time but it should not have been a problem in the first place. It would have been a lot better to have a combined treble and tone knob.

Kudos to Thomann for their excellent support and for letting me exchange it for a Sandberg.

Einfach ein genialer Bass
Kallas, 24.12.2020
Ich hatte schon hohe Erwartungen an den Bass und diese sind sogar mehr als nur übertroffen worden.
Der Sound und die Bespielbarkeit sind erste Klasse!
Auch die vielen Möglichkeiten welches dieser Jazz Bass liefert ist einfach sehr angenehm. Ich spiele sehr gerne im Passiv Mode, soll es dann doch etwas moderner und fetziger sein dann passe ich mir den Sound mithilfe des wirklich tollen Pre-Amp so an wie ich es möchte!

Der wirklich einzige Kritikpunkt den ich hätte, dass es bissle umständlich ist für den V9 eine manual für die Elektronik zu erhalten. Also habe ich mir einfach auf der Hersteller Website auf das Produkt geklickt und mir einen Screenshot mit dem Pottis und den jeweiligen Funktionen gemacht.
