First-class bass

11.04.2016
After I could test the Sandberg models California TM4 and VM5 in a large instrument store alongside other brands and models the thing was clear - it should be a TM5 from the Braunschweiger bass forge.
On Thomann.de I then found two models, which fulfilled all my ideas - namely TM5 with maple fingerboard and matt finish - and decided for that in Blackburst.

After the bass - neatly packaged, as was accustomed to Thomann - was delivered I could not believe my eyes. The pictures on Thomann.de were already great, but in real - the absolute madness: The grain of the wood is well recognizable and depending on the light irradiation the wood of the corpus glimmers in a variety of colors. Optical: 1a + with asterisks!

As well as the models in the store, the processing is first-class, no dispersion in the quality offered.

The bass was well tuned: tension, string, octave purity, everything was perfect. Only with 3 of the 5 strings I would have wanted a few windings more on the vocal vertebra, but this is done with the first string change anyway.

So just tune and ran at the amp.
With the Fender Rumble 350 with 4x10 "Cabinet, the TM5 is very well thought-out, the active / passive circuit, the splittable humbucker and the powerful 2-band EQ make the spectrum of possible sounds very wide , 3 Kg are not too much with a wider leather belt.

Conclusion: First-class electric bass with a wide range of applications. The TM5 is actually a bargain at the purchase price, processing quality, great detail solutions (string holder, battery compartment, ...), handling / playability and not least the great sound.

Super processing and top flexible sound

18.05.2016
As a classic cover bass player I was looking for a bass that is flexible and can be adapted to different music styles quickly. After a few years with an Ibanez BtB, I also wanted to play a bass with more character.

What can I say. The Sandberg fulfills all criteria with bravura. Dry rock & roll sounds are just as possible as growling rock or heavy sounds. The sound control sounds super and very powerful and the active / passive circuit allows even more sounds. I drive the Sandberg directly over an EBS Multicomp into an Ampeg SCR DI and then directly into the desk. The sound control I then make directly at the bass.

The workmanship and BlackBurst paint are faultless. And the bass looks really much better than on the photos. The potentiometers provide enough resistance and can be adjusted very finely.

The instrument came perfectly adjusted to me. The string was top. Plays like butter.

Price performance is absolutely fair for an instrument from domestic fields.

The included Gigbag is ok and offers enough storage space. But a suitcase I will still enjoy the good piece.
