Genuine quality Hofner at affordable price .

29.09.2016
I recently purchased this bass from Thomann as I am a huge Beatles fan , and wanted to own a genuine Hofner vilion bass just like Paul's , but with out breaking the bank ! .Thomann had the best online price I could find on this excellent little bass , and the customer service was excellent with the item arriving safe and sound here to Australia.The contemporary series bass by Hofner is actually a very close reproduction of a classic V64 500/1 violin bass , but at a very affordable price . The biggest difference with this model is that the bass has a centre block in the body , creating a more modern tone , while still getting that classic trademark Beatle bass vibe and sound ! This bass although manufactured in the East , is still of a very high build quality . It comes factory fitted with round wound strings which sounds great ... however , I changed these out for La Bella flatwounds to help achieve a closer vintage tone . I also purchased the Thomann beat case which fits this model nicely . I highly recommend this bass ... you won't regret it .

Hofner HCT/500/1 SB Contemporary Violin Bass

Damian C., 19.09.2013
The contemporary Violin Bass from Hofner is an inexpensive way to own a top quality Hofner. The bass has been made and finished immaculately and has German made pickups and hardware. The flame finish can only be described as beautiful.
The bass has German made Hofner pickups and hardware. The shortscale neck takes a bit of getting used to if you're used to longscale basses, but plays very well and is comfortable.
The bass sounds excellent in a live setting and has a deep bassy thud which sits well in the mix.
Soundwise, its not too far off the German Hofners but is slightly less woody, maybe a bit more modern sounding.
Thomann once again had the bass priced at the cheapest I could find on the net.
