A really fun instrument to own

runn, 09.03.2018
I use it mostly at home for writing music and recording bass tracks to demos. A very inspirational instrument I must say. I'm not a bass player but occasionally like to pick up a bass to fiddle a little. I like the shape and size of this instrument and the looks. The sound is more on the higher end and not too sustainy as one might expect from this body size but this can be doctored in amplification and effects stage if necessary.

The quality looks decent under every corner, I've seen far worse instruments for four times the price. The included gig bag looks also decent. Couldn't ask more for the money.

I bought it for the looks, to use in a music video so I don't know if I'd buy it again if stolen but I'd certainly buy it for the first time again :)

An undiscovered little gem

Hugh Höfner, 12.07.2017
Received deliver of this today and was mightily impressed, both with the bass and the delivery service which was excellent.
Pros - its size , it's dynamic range of sounds, price
Cons - none , can't fault it.
Plugging in I was very pleased with the sound. Played it through my CUBE amp and found it was very controllable. The sound from the single pick up was very nice both in bright slap and darker muted tones. Drove well through the amp. Effects such as chorus and distorsion are just lovely and very dirty ?? (which is a good thing ). Very versatile tool.
Full size neck means an easy transition to full size base with no loss of muscle skill from your left hand.
Short body makes it easy to get your hand closer to the nut for trickery riffs. It's size means it is best played sitting on a couch or if standing with a strap with strap locks as the physics of its construct require this... a brilliant bass and portable ! Suitable for students and performance.
