Amazing Bridge, but watchout your scale!!

Hsin-Hung, 01.02.2017
I bought a 5-string ver. for my Sandberg TM5 (old shape). The original bridge on my Sandberg works quite good. It provides various setting by a many screw. But, if you just want to set your bass in some easy way, Babicz will be the best choice. It is also a powerful bridge that you could feel and tune the tension of strings during the action setting. Beside, the vibration is totally different between two bridges. It feels like a little bit tight and compression with Sandberg, and feels hollow with Babicz. The vibration can easily penetrate the whole body of bass. With Babicz, everything becomes so sweet.
However, there is a miserable fact that I have no choice to disassemble the Babicz bridge. My TM5 is old shape of Sandberg with 35? neck. The gauge of screw of is not exactly fit for Babicz, but this is not the main problem. I think it is based on the gauge of Fender to design the bridge, and it maybe takes 34? scale bass for a example. Therefore, on my Sandberg 35? TM bass???I cannot tune the B-string to the right octave!!!!! Even if I rescrew the bridge to backward side, it is tough to fit the scale of string. This just a case happen on my bass, but it still an awesome bridge when it comes to sound performance.

I think now I have a opportunity to buy a Fender bass, just because of the bridge!

Great part ...

An internet search before buying from Thomann gave me partly contradictory information about the effect of the Babicz Bass Bridge (5). In short, for me, the following mood image first emerged:

- fuller sound with strong bass sound parts;
- Aluminum appears more open in the high frequency range;
- faster response and stronger tone with harmonic overtones;
- the color the sounds has changed little, but Klan is more powerful;
- significant improvement of the sound when played without an amp;
- no change in the high frequency range;
- improved sustain opposite? Sheet angle ?;
- no dramatic change in the sound;
No change in the sound of all the strings and positions;
- radiant sound and longer sustain improve the sound considerably;
- tighter E-string;
- clearly improved basic principles;
- significant improvement in sustain and sound;
- only minor or no changes in the sound;
- more sustain and good sound of strings.

With such a mix of feedbacks, there is room for one's own opinion, which can not be completely wrong, because one finds in each case somewhere like-minded.

I installed the Babicz Bass Bridge 5 on my reed bass (a Squier Deluxe Jazz V, which I have been using for a long time with passive electronics and Delano pickups). The bass is not a cream piece, but allows a strong game and has grown to my heart.

My personal impression of changing the sound through the Babicz Bridge is positive and can be summarized in a few points:

- richer base with differentiated basses and significantly improved sustain;
- better response on all strings / more punch;
- high frequency components in very good balance with the basses;
- the Babicz Bass Bridge 5 is quickly mounted and very well adjustable.

In short: Prima Teil!
