Precise machine ...

Guti, 20.11.2016
The purchase of my first Sadowsky bass was rather impulsive. It is not as if I had just barely 3k left but a new bass had to her ....;)
I play a 63 Fender Precision Bass, which I have closed in my "heart and ear". But now it was time to get a jazz bass. It had to be a 5 string with maple neck and maple fingerboard. For a long time, the name Sadowsky swam in the "back of my head". This manufactory has the reputation to manufacture the "better" Fender basses and rightly so. Through research on the World Wide Web, I finally ended up at Thomann.
I did not think long, quickly to the telephone grasped and after a short consultation with the friendly, competent staff, Mr. David Wittig, from the bass department, the bass ultimately ordered. When asked whether the bass should go through the hands of the Thomann technicians, I declined thanks. I wanted to know how the bass would be adjusted and delivered at the factory. I was particularly curious about the weight of the bass, since no weight indications could be found on the local offer page. My internet research showed that for my bass handmade from sump and maple, the weight varies between 3.8 kg - 4.5 kg. My expectations and my expectations were that my new 5-string bass should not exceed the 4kg mark.

The day of delivery was exciting. When the package was handed over by the postman, I already had a slight grin in the face, since the package really seemed very easy.
With great anticipation, I took the bass out of the 2 packages, one from Thomann and another Suseky cardboard box, and I was the first to enjoy the beautiful, extremely light softcase that surrounds the beautiful Sadowsky Metro Vintage MV5 Natur. The packaging was already more than safe and robust!

The scales are already ready. Now the decision-making question arose! How hard is this simple beauty really? The tension rose. More than pleased I noticed that the bass remained under the 4kg mark. The weight tared to 3.91kg. This value is a light weight for a 5-string. Mega
My expectations regarding the varnishing, the look, the weight and the processing are fully fulfilled. The feel is perfect. The bass hangs comfortably and balanced on the harness and fits comfortably to my body.

The bass was factory set almost perfectly. Only the E and B string had to be adjusted to octave purity "nach". Now everything works exactly right up to the high positions. There are no "deadspots", no buzz, zizzeln or other side noise. The bass played "dry", precise, wiry and fulminant. The factory-produced Sadowsky Blue Label - SBS 45B stainless steel standard bass strings - in the strengths 45-65-85-105-130, have a nice string and are very comfortable to play. In addition, all 5 strings have the same fulminant penetration force, swing precisely and cleanly.

This perfect bass from the Metroline series is manufactured in Japan, Tokyo and represents a "cheap" alternative to a Sadowsky instrument made in the USA, New York. To be honest, I do not know if you have to double the numbers for this option! From?
This Sadowsky Metro Vintage MV5 NAT is faultless and an absolute profile tool.

Soundly, there are a lot of possibilities. The circuit is very simple and intuitive to use. The bass is active as well as passive to play. For this I will however again explicitly leave out as soon as I have played the bass in the band context.

So far, I can only express myself positively and praise. Perfect, precise machine ....
