wow! V3 2nd gen!
DBband, 02.09.2019
I've had the bass for two weeks now! I also bought a red first gen last year (curiosity) and am till enjoying it! Back to my white 2nd gen! I always change the strings no matter how good or bad because I've played 40-100 for a long long time! I did the usual setting up to my own taste, and after two weeks it's now exactly right for me! Truss rod, string height and pu height are now lovely! I did the same with my 1st gen as well! This 2nd gen is definately heavier than the 1st gen, I thought at first it was alder! The first gen is very light and comfy! This one is also comfy and the rounded neck edges are very nice! The pups are louder, more punchy and it?s a wonderful slap sound! I don't do much slapping but it does sound great! All in all I really enjoy these two basses very much! I've been a profi all my life and have a few wonderful vintage Fenders and the V3 s are the basses I'm playing most of the time! Maybe I was lucky because I have a V7 1st gen that comes nowhere near! Though my V7 1st gen fretless is also very nice! I think the V7 fretted was a bad one-off! Anyway I love the V3?s and I'm not going to say that they are good for the money.........they are good at any price! The tuners are ok and I prefer the bridge to those on the V7! I play them active, it gives a little more oomph, and I use only the blend ant tone! I don't use the active eq, I find it all a bit fiddly, though a lot of sounds can be obtained if wished for! I'm hoping they will work well for many years to come! Thanks to Thomann for the great service as alwasy.

P.S. I forgot to say what the cons are for me! I don?t like the headstock shape, I find it quite ugly and I would much prefer the truss rod
adjustment in the headstock! Other than that I enjoy the V3!

A solid instrument
T Molloy, 01.06.2021
A great instrument in active or passive mode.
More noise than more expensive instruments when using the controls (like the pickup blend for example). In my opinion, a simpler preamp set up would be better here.
Great build quality for the price, although the action was ludicrously high when I received the bass.

Bass
Johan Schots, 20.05.2019
My first bass guitar and very glad I bought this.

Would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn bass on a good instrument for a very nice price!

You don't hurt your fingers playing this bass, and I am really a novice!

Different settings possible and they all sound good, depending what you need (genre).....

Thanks Thoman for the good service!

A happy customer.

:-)

Cheers
Johan

Ich bin Gitarrist und war auf der Suche nach einem Bass fürs Home Recording und für Sessions, bei denen mal wieder der Bassist nicht kann. Dafür reicht eigentlich eine Minimallösung, aber als ich den Preisbereich der Minimallösungen checkte, kam auf einmal (am oberen Rand) der MM V3 ins Bild. Die Rezensionen überschlagen sich vor Begeisterung, also warum nicht mal testen?


Und es ist wahr, das Teil ist ein tolles Instrument. Die aufwendige Aktivschaltung ist wahrscheinlich mehr, als ich brauche, aber die Bespielbarkeit ist einfach super. Der Hals liegt toll in der Hand, sowohl Lack als auch die gerundete Griffbrettkante sind sehr angenehm. Trocken klingen die E und A so knackig und voll, dass ich den Bass auch schon unverstärkt hergenommen hab, um ein bisschen zu slappen. Im Passiv-Modus braucht man nur zwei Regler, um alles einzustellen - die Lösung, Volume und Tone übereinander zu stapeln, finde ich sehr praktisch, das Poti dahinter macht die PU-Blende, und alles, was dahinter noch an Reglern kommt, braucht man nur für den Aktiv-Betrieb. Coolerweise funktioniert die zuschaltbare Aktiv-Sektion wie analoger Speicher: hier kann man sich einen Sound vordefinieren, der zB weit vom klassischen Jazz Bass entfernt ist - und ihn dann zack! mit dem Umlegen des kleinen Toggle Switches aufrufen. Man hat also verschaltungstechnisch zwei Bässe in einem.


Witzigerweise kam der Bass mit den Saiten durch die Bridge aufgezogen, obwohl es eigentlich eine Through-Body-Konstruktion ist. Das heisst, der Klangfetischist hat hier noch eine weitere Wahl, wie er den Klang besser findet. Aber wie gesagt, ich bin eigentlich Gitarrist, kann mir also egal sein. Obwohl ich langsam glaube, dass ich mich mit diesem Bass in meiner Band vielleicht doch öfter mal freiwillig melde, wenn tiefe Töne gebraucht werden.
