Genau, was ich brauchte (ohne es zu ahnen!) / Just what I needed (without knowing it!)
Karan Troubadoura, 16.05.2017
(Please scroll down for the English translation of my review)

Der reine Zufall ließ mich den Fusion Classic Akustik Bass finden, als ich einen Kollegen zu Thomann chauffierte und dort Zeit hatte, mich ein bisschen umzuschauen. Die dicke E-Saite und das an der oberen Zarge angebrachte Schalloch machten mich neugierig, ich schlug ein paar Töne an - und wusste, dass ich ein Instrument gefunden hatte, das meinen existierenden Gitarren-Pool (eine 6- und eine 12-saitige Akustikgitarre) ungemein bereichern würde. Ich hatte keine Ahnung, dass es so etwas überhaupt gibt!

Bereits unverstärkt ist der Klang des gitarrengroßen Instruments überraschend gut zu hören, sehr ausgewogen und satt, aber mit einem (idealerweise guten) Verstärker zeigt der Fusion Classic Akustikbass seine ganzen Stärken: er hat ein warmes, langes Sustain, lässt sich aber gleichzeitig auch gut zupfen ohne verwaschen zu klingen. Die Saitenhöhe macht ihn leichtgriffig, ohne Schnarren - auch für Spieler_innen mit begrenzter Kraft.

Das eingebaute Stimmgerät ermöglicht neben der normalen Gitarrenstimmung auch andere Möglichkeiten. Es lässt sich dank beleuchteter Anzeige gut bedienen. Die kleinen Knöpfe erfordern etwas Fingerspitzengefühl, doch ist das ganze Instrument ja eher für Leute, die über solches verfügen - wer grob zulangen mag, wird mit einem normalen Long-Scale-Akustikbass glücklicher.

Der Equalizer hilft bei der Feineinstellung, aber der Klang ist schon im neutralen Modus eine echte Wucht!

Ich gehöre zwar zu den Menschen, denen das Aussehen eines Instruments ziemlich egal ist, solange der Klang stimmt, aber der Bass ist wirklich wunderschön, sehr schlicht und elegant, und makellos verarbeitet.

Also habe ich ihn kurzerhand spontan gekauft - mit der Aussage: "Da stecken eine Menge neuer Lieder drin". Und jetzt mache ich mich daran, sie zu schreiben! :-)

***********

I came across the Fusion Classic Acoustic Bass by pure chance when I drove a colleague to Thomann and had the time to wander and look around. I became curious about the thick lowest string and the soundhole in the upper frame, played a few notes - and knew that I had found a wonderful enrichment to my existing guitar collection (a 6-string and a 12-string acoustic guitar). I had no idea that something like this existed at all!

Even without amplification the sound of the guitar-sized instrument is surprisingly good, very balanced and full; but with an (ideally high-quality) amplifyer the bass will show its full strengths: it has a warm, long sustain, but can also be finger-picked very well, without sounding slurred. The action and the fretboard make it easy to play without any unpleasant buzz - even for those with limited strength in their hands.

The in-built tuner enables the use of all kinds of tunings apart from the standard. Thanks to the illuminated display it is easy to handle. The small knobs require some sensitivity, but so does the whole instrument - those who prefer a more vigorous touch will be happier with a normal long-scale acoustic bass.

The equalizer helps with the finetuning, but the sound is already great in the neutral mode.

I don't really care for the look of an instrument as long as I love the sound, but the elegant simplicity of the bass is absolutely beautiful. It is impeccably manufactured.

This is why I made a totally unplanned purchase, saying: "This instrument contains plenty of new songs". And now I am going to write them all! :-)

Kleiner Bass mit großen Tönen
Guitarbara, 27.04.2017
Ich habe das Instrument für mein Gitarren-Ensemble gekauft. Deswegen wollte ich einen Bass, der problemlos von einem Gitarrenspieler gespielt werden kann. Das Instrument ist exakt wie eine Gitarre gebaut, und klingt eben 1 Oktave tiefer. Das eingebaute Tonabnehmer-System funktioniert einwandfrei, aber auch ohne Verstärker kann man den Bass gut hören. Sehr leicht spielbar. Warmer und satter Klang. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis und eine schöne Bereicherung für das Ensemble!! Die passenden Saiten kosten zwar 39¤, aber klar, das die teurer sind als "normale" Saiten. Sind ja alle umsponnen. Die Saiten untereinander sind gut ausgeglichen, kein Scheppern, trotz der tiefen Lage und dafür kurzen Mensur!! Optisch interessant, sauber verarbeitet. Für diesen Preis klare Kaufempfehlung. Als Hülle habe ich Gigbag Premium von Thomann genommen. Passt optimal, macht sicheren Eindruck.
