I will never forget the faces at the first gig with this bass. Some of the bass sounds literally dropping the jacks.

I bought this bass as a B-product for use in the area of ??jazz, blues, rock and big band. He has the perfect sound, I think. But how to describe this? Woody-warm fits quite well.

He sounds perfect with Flatwounds. In my opinion, these are a must for this kind of bass. Currently I have flats from Fender drauf. And it will be the same.

The Starfire is slightly kopflasting, but with a normal wide belt already stable in front of the belly and can be played pleasantly. But this is not a surprise at Shortscale.

The only downside: the E-string I get not bundrein. The corresponding string rider is on the stop, but this can be solved with cautious expert knowledge. Nevertheless, I give only four points for the processing.
