Great bass, but arrived in bad condition.

Gustav Friberg, 09.09.2017
I'll start with the summary: if you're looking for a great 5 string at a low price and don't mind doing some setup; buy it.

Starting with the sound: AMAZING. The tonal range is incredible. At full tone, no bass and bridge pickup the sound is dirty, crunchy and metallic. At no tone, full base and neck pickup, it sounds like a sine wave. Even through my cheap practice amp, it sounds like heaven.

Features: Great. The active tonexpressor can be turnet up to much, but that's not an issue really. Great tuners, great bridge, fret job is perfectly adequate, strap buttons are great, and the knobs feel great (now at least).

Quality: When it came, the truss rod was completely turned way to hard, so the string lay on the frets. Two of the pots were loose. But after a couple of hours the bass was great. I just wish I didn't have to do that by myself, as I am a beginner and not really comfortable with it.

The printing on the pickups rubbed of fast, so I recommend leaving the plastic film on.

Tested for wind music, jazz, rock pop

Andreas7178, 11.08.2015
After playing the bass of my neighbor, I was very surprised by the sound and the price. The additional active bass control makes itself very good. The bass is very powerful (connected to the roland db-700 d-bass amplifier).
After setting up the neck, the string position, the octave purity, etc., I was even pleasantly surprised by the handling. Unfortunately, as with many bass guitars, the top line is to complain about. Without any change to the body (lengthening) or a very wide strap, which again presses on the shoulder, he almost does not play, since one is always trying to keep the neck up, so as not to look for the sounds between the knee-throats have to. May it look good in some musical directions, but not with jazz.
Conclusion: After some changes, it is a very usable bass, which can be used for this price from BLAMU over Jazz to Rock-Pop (also by the good electronics, which was installed).
