Better than you might think

07.03.2017
This is my first double bass and I've only heard a handful of others.

I am very please with purchase considering the horror stories that you read on double bass forums about Chinese made basses.

It comes very well packaged and the bridge requires set up on delivery. There are light pencil marks to help you position the bridge.

Once assembled I found it very easy to play and I don't think I will seek a Luthier to provide further set up as personally think it's unnecessary. However i don't have much faith in the string attaching the tailpiece so I might at some point get that replace with wire.

I did experience a disappointment when the E string snapped due to a fault in the string, which happened only a few days after delivery. But Thomann customer service was helpful and were able to send me a replacement within a few days and I haven't experienced any problems since.

I mostly play pizzicato and I think my bass has a nice tone and I found the A string between D and open A position to be the most resonant. Side by side with a more expensive I was hard pressed to hear much of a difference, but maybe a more expensive bass will be more resonant over a larger range.

I'm happy enough with the sound of the factory strings and I don't think I will be changing them just yet, I want to get use to the ones I have so if I do change them I can actually hear the difference.

In summary if you are a beginner like me then this is a low risk buy and you'll get a lot more than you would expect for a cheap bass.

Lovely Affordable Bass

03.10.2016
I bought this bass for swing / rockabilly style music.
I have been playing electric for a while and always wanted an upright bass without breaking the bank..

Happy with my purchase, as well as Thomann fast delivery and service to the UK. This double bass has a lovely finish and is well made.

Make sure you check the instrument thorougly on delivery, iI have noticed a couple of minor scratch afterward on the surface of the instrument, but nothing major.

The main downside I would say are the strings, poor quality.

Overall very happy!
