Top quality instrument for a really reasonable price
Beanie, 19.04.2020
This is a really decent quality instrument which comes with a built in mp3 player input and headphone socket as well as the standard jack so you can practise along in silence without even needing an amp.

Another great thing about the headphone socket is you have a built in monitor which means you're not dependent on a sound engineer for decent monitoring.

The build quality is great, the wooden neck feels tough and is really nice to hold and to play. I'm new to playing bass so the dots on the fingerboard are really useful, though I'm not sure if they are standard on a bass.

I can't say much about the sound quality as I've only put this through a tiny amp.

Criticisms? The EQ on mp3s seems to be really treble heavy, missing a lot of the bass frequencies - possibly on purpose for playalong reasons, but I'd like to decide for myself whether I want to hear the bass.

The lovely shiny finish on the main body shows up even the slightest imperfection in manufacturing or any scratches. Even just the slightest ding will show up really easily.

Très satisfait
TOEC, 19.07.2021
Pour débuter la contrebasse en autodidacte, c'est un superbe objet répondant à toutes les qualités attendues, aussi bien au niveau du son rendu (au casque) qu'en terme de maniabilité.

mehr als erwartet
Dr.W, 16.11.2020
Bin sowohl von der Haptik als auch der Verarbeitung positiv überrascht.
Über PA / Bassverstärker guter satter echter Kontrabasssound. Einziges
Manko ist das fehlende Kolophonium. ( Aber so was hat man ja immer im Haus , gell ).
Bin mehr als zufrieden.

Contrabajo eléctrico idóneo para aprender
Zona d'Art, 13.08.2021
Como bajista de hace muchos años, la adquisición de este contrabajo eléctrico ha representado el desarrollar mis inquietudes musicales con un nuevo instrumento de graves. Sonido muy bueno, acompañado de un buen ampli. Muy contento.
