A beautiful bass all public warned

Dominique8565, 14.01.2015
Very beautiful instrument with noble materials. Uncompromising manufacturing quality. Sound side in acoustics knowing that never a guitar will be a double bass, it is round, deep and for blues, jazz (s) ... regal! And in other hands than mine, I wait! (Rock, hard?). I make a criticism which I believe valid for any European product; Absence of a manual in French, except for a Czech advertisement on Furch products. No info concerning the type of rope mounted, pulling them, nor a key to adjust the handle for example. If it does not bother a pro, a beginner? I had forgotten the principal; The playability: for a beginner of 60 years, if I had known, I would have started with a fretless of this quality rather than a fret! Yes Yes !
On the amplification side, it's simplistic, discreet but the acoustic sound is not betrayed, and suddenly free to do what you want. Very nice bass!

A high quality instrument that meets all my expectations

Dr. Peter, 13.07.2015
Ten years ago, I switched from the electric bass to double bass (mainly jazz) and now I fulfilled a long-term desire for a bandless long-scale acoustic bass guitar. After extensive research, I drove to the "Musician Mecca" to Treppendorf and had the Furch B61-CM-Fretless out of the camp to test him extensively. What am I supposed to say? The design and the processing down to the smallest detail convinced me immediately; Especially the - if also somewhat low - thumb support in the extension of the ebony grip board makes the playing immediately very pleasant. The point markings on the outside of the handleboard are arranged so that you can play exactly after them and do not have to take a higher position in the "imaginary covenant". Actually, I can manage without markers, but by the possibilities to play up to the high pitch in comparison to the double bass, they are quite helpful. There are "premium strings" factory-wound, which I will continue to buy again. The string position is very good, and you can go straight from the double bass as well as from the fretless electric bass immediately "get" and achieves amazing speeds. The unencrypted sound is very pleasant, a bit "roughened" and by the hard ebony fingerboard beautiful "singing", which corresponds to my ideas. The volume is enough to play with concert guitars together with Western guitars. However, the built-in active pickup with sound and volume control over the soundhole is finest; The 9V - block is used, since I have less than 1 hour per week (Gaul Krueger MB 150 and the Marshall Acoustic Amp with 50 Watts alternating) and otherwise only acoustic, with me now more than four months. Take the instrument also on vacation, which with the double bass would be problematic ;-))
I do not really use my bass guitar any more, the Furch makes everything I want with jazz, swing, folk, latin ... - surely subjectively, but for that you write a review - perfect way. So I own one in the middle of Europe (Czech Republic, necessarily visit the homepage of Furch!) Handmade and elegantly made instrument for which the 1300 Euronen seem to me a really good price. So far there is absolutely nothing to complain about - Kauftipp!
