Thomann 2QM 3/4 Europe Double Bass

Double Bass

This 3/4 semi-solid double bass is built completely out of solid wood and is manufactured in Europe. It features a fingerboard made from blackwood, which in terms of sound behaviour, visual appearance and playing feel is a suitable alternative (equal) to ebony.

The blackwood used in the making of this instrument has been harvested from plantation pinewood (Pinus radiata), and has been used here to support the preservation of natural ebony resources and to protect rainforests.

Great beginners Instrument

George U., 09.04.2014
After spending several hours trawling the internet forums, I decided upon the Thomann 2W QM 3/4 double bass.

It was delivered well ahead of schedule and in perfect condition.

This is a good-looking, well finished, great sounding beginners' double bass. My tutor was very impressed with my choice (even the standard steal strings are of reasonable quality) and said that he would be very happy to have this as a second, backup instrument.

The bass is well set up and easy to play. Also bought the Ritter (RITTER RCDB700-9-T/BST) double bass soft case and K&M 141 MKII double bass stand: both excellent quality.

Only other addition would be a tuner.

Definitely recommend this double bass. Very happy.

good value fo money

17.02.2016
finding a decent double bass can be difficult unless you intend to spend a lot of money! thomann have plenty to chose from, weather you want a budget instrument or spend a little more.
the bass arrived on a truck, well packaged and strapped to a pallet. i upgraded strings straight away. the bass sounds great now. however initially there was a problem. the bridge supplied developed a curve or "bend" i got in touch with thomann, even sent them photo`s but i was told it should be set up correctly (even though they are supposedly set up by thomman before they are shipped) i would have hoped they would send a new bridge out but i had to go and buy one and have it fitted.
the bass is great to play and looks good too, only a little disappointed with the service from thomann, their reputation is usually so good.
