Do not buy ...

14.03.2017
Since you buy a brand new bass for not very little money and then the: looks like 30 years, undressed, paint partly shattered, metal parts started and someone forgot his tipping, which he / she at the head plate under the E- String has clamped! Has probably just played a solo?
How can a bass go so low / What a Mess / So sad.

No seriously, I just do not want anyone else but me a * so * crass horny bass plays. Sandberg are clearly the best when it comes to ageing, elaborate, "labor of love". The lacquer on the geagenten basses is a little softer than the high-gloss parts and I imagine that the HCA basses sound a bit woodier / opener. Relaxing: I have the feeling that I deal with the part more loosely, as far as the surface is concerned: When I push with the body times where, I can look long after the dent. ;)

I come from the jazz-bass-corner (fretted and fretless), where the neck-pickup never really pleased me one hundred percent. The inverted built-in Preci pickup comes beautifully well, the MM pickup - very close to the bridge - brings fine, dry, growling mids and also solo power enough and definitely enough bass with the 2-band sound control (jew. + - 18 dB). Sound is the bass * very * diverse, I can do everything I want / need: jazz, funk, rock, pop, reggae - everything super good. A Groovemachine with P, J and MM sound properties.

The push-pull volume potentiometer for passive switching with the treble control as a passive sound diaphragm, I can directly set two sounds and flash quickly. The active aperture between the two pickups (without any losses in the middle position) I also very appreciated. You can change the sound characteristics quickly and precisely.
For whom is the sound of the VM4 perhaps not quite perfect? I think of the HiFi-Slapper with pronounced hardwood affinity: the lack is possibly a touch more shine in the presences.
The character of the bass is always beautiful in the entire spectrum of sound: strong depths, good impulse, great mids and velvety, clear heights. A super Rockbass, but * only * for it actually much too bad or too good or too many-sided. :)

The neck is pinned ex factory, so dressed by friend computer milling machine. The string position is therefore very low adjustable. Very pleasant neck profile between J- and P-bass, super playable, no deadspots found. Sustain goes with the 6 thumbscrews until after the coffee break. You can stroke the strings and protect your fingers with a strong sound / foundation and output. Just cool.

For the California II series, the head plate has been minimally reduced and equipped with extra-light mechanics. The Saitenenniederhalter also includes the A-string. The bridge sits a little further on the lower end and the bass is slightly lighter overall than in the predecessor series. Depends very well, no tendency to head.

The bridge is well rounded, no danger of injury. The octave purity is set very well at the factory. Have read that the setting of the bridge is a bit cumbersome, but one does not make anyway every day. The bridge is slit, which I find very good, because you can change strings quickly and also times to exchange strings, in order to have a different sound in between without ruining the strings when you lose them by a hole in the bridge fumble Would have to. The maggots in the bridge, by the way, are not aged and run smoothly.

So: Great bass, am absolutely satisfied. Property in my well 30 years of bassism already had some fine bass in the fingers but still hardly a better, at least to * my * taste.
The price is for the offered full okay - so do not buy, please.
