Good value for the money

Nickybah, 13.10.2014
This bass is great value for money but is better still with a little extra time and money spent on it. The first thing to do is change the strings. For the best sound and playability a set of flats, I chose La Bella DTB light gauge (highly recommended). The original strings are quite poor quality IMO. Next thing to do is change the tuning heads. The fitted tuners feel like they or the string are going to snap when tuned to pitch and one of them felt quite gritty. I picked up a rugby ball shaped copy set for less than £30 and tuning feels so much easier. I like to set the action quite low and had to dress a couple of frets around the top of the neck. It's fairly common to have to do this on entry level basses as the point where the neck meets the body is prone to all kinds of tension and when things have settled some frets can ride up a little out of the fretboard. TBH at the manufacturers recommended settings it wouldn't have been necessary. It's worth checking the radius on the neck and bridge, I found the bridge needed the radii increased in order to get the A and D strings to sit perfectly by sanding the bridge down a little in the centre. This isn't strictly necessary but does improve it's playability. The volume controls on mine were very loose so I've changed them for the originals from my contemporary, which I upgraded to teacup style knobs, and they are a perfect fit, it would only have been a matter of time before one fell off and got lost. With these few alterations and the usual pickup height and truss rod tweaking it's a mighty fine playing and sounding bass. The pictures suggest a slightly translucent finish to the black but mine is jet black throughout, I guess it just depends on batches as to the paint finish and I'm quite happy with it the way it is.

Beatles Bass

06.04.2015
So to start my review,
as other people have stated, the machine keys on this bass are not very good (made of chocolate). But I did as others did and replaced them with the Hofner 63 machine keys ( cheaper here on Thomann than UK web sites). What an amazing difference! I also installed the Pyramid Gold flat wound strings for a smoother playing action and authentic retro Beatles sound. To be honest, you cannot beat the sound quality and playability of this Bass considering how little it costs. It has a fantastic punchy wooden sound, just look on the internet for examples to listen it. The action is more than acceptable and I am sure the more expensive versions are even better but if you are learning to play or have a tight budget you will find it hard to beat this instrument for lightness, playability and of course price.

Bad Points: My instrument was delivered with badly finished pick guard edges (fixed with fine sand paper, a fine grade file and care), and the metal string seats on the bridge were not in the correct position (I loosened the strings and adjusted them easily by hand).

Good Points: Great Price, Short scale playability, Punchy wooden sound.

Considering my recent experience with Thomann I think if you have any problems with this instrument like some of the other reviewers have had (chocolate machine keys) you won't be let down. I had a string snap when installing it and they reviewed my photograph and replaced it without fuss very quickly.
