Ich habe den Bass lediglich gekauft um ein ein paar Akzente setzen zu wollen, besonders bei der Aufnahme im Studio. Das ist der erste 8-Saiter, den ich je in den Händen hatte.

Positives:
Der Bass lässt sich an sich sehr gut bespielen, trotz des für mich ungewohnt dicken Halses. Die Saiten liegen gut und mit ein wenig Übung gelingt das Spielen auch sauber.
Die Mechaniken halten was sie versprechen und lassen sich auch ganz gut einstellen.

Negatives:
Kleines Detail, aber sehr nervig: 6 der 8 Saiten sind im ersten Bund nicht spielbar gewesen, da der Sattel dermaßen unsauber verarbeitet war, dass ich mit wenig Druck die Saiten heraussprinen lassen konnte. Das sollte in der Preisklasse und bei den angegebenen Qualitätskontrollen nicht passieren.

Der Equalizer ist nett gemeint, aber recht nutzlos. Klar ist, dass ein Bass mit passiven Tonabnehmer mehr Power am Amp benötigt, als ein aktiver, aber bei voll aufgedrehtem EQ am Bass ist dennoch das doppelte bis dreifache an Power am Amp nötig (Vergleich Ibanez aktiv an einem Hartke LH1000 ~ Stufe 2-3; ESP LTD ~ Stufe 6-7 für äquivalente Lautstärke und Druck). Schraubt man den EQ in andere Positionen, klingt er nach nichts mehr.
Das schränkt die Vielfalt sehr ein.

Ein weiterer Punkt ist der, dass die Oktavseite eine extreme Prominenz aufweißt und die eigentliche Basssaite fast untergehen lässt. Evtl. ist das immer der Fall - aber für mich und mein Empfinden war das zu viel.

Fazit: Optisch hübsch anzusehen, mäßige bis schlechte Verarbeitung, klangarm und recht kraftlos. Eigentlich das Gegenteil vom guten Herrn Bello. Schade für seinen guten Namen.
