Awesome headless
Jagmart, 08.04.2019
This bass was bought because I have wanted a headless bass since the 80?s. The bass has an almost limitless sound palette, and is very versatile. Tones ranging from really clinical slap tones to deep reggae dub sounds. It is very light and very comfortable to wear on a strap and also very comfortable in a seated position with the leg rest folded out. It takes no time at all to get used to the headstock not being there and it stays in tune perfectly, because there are no tuners to knock when taking it out of the gig bag. The quality is excellent, and the frets are really well polished with no sharp edges or buzzing. Everything feels very sturdy and well put together. I would definitely recommend this to anyone just starting out or anyone wanting something very different to what is out there.

Steinberger xt-2
Tzortzis, 22.02.2019
just spent 3 hours playing this instrument non stop, right after getting it. Really fun , in a lot of ways unusual . But overall a great buy.
PROS
1)Great sound ,(for the price).
2) Great sustain ,
3)surprisingly even sound across the board
4)The look of this bass is amazing, if you like this kind o stuff, and the build is exceptionally descent (again ,for the price) .
CONS
1)It's weird playing it , quite different ergonomics from the standard
p-bass etc.. but i guess it made me play differently too so that was kind of cool and as time passes you get used to it.
2)The tuning screws (?) are a bit sketchy and not responding quite as good
2) The strings are awful . And difficult to find. I think that is the biggest flaw of this instrument. It only takes double ball end strings .
But as i know one can find single ball adapters, so i'm planning on doing that.
Overall ,i was completely satisfied with this purchase , as its sound ,vibe and uniqueness completely overshadow the cons.

Better than you might think of it
ProgBass, 02.07.2014
I play rock and heavy metal and tried the steinberger pedal as it is of wood and passive pickups, a typical constellation for rock music, as other bass brands take this combination, too. Take the cheap steinberger bass strings and you'll get the desired sound. It really is some kind of dry and produces a great passive rock tone

Outstanding.
MattiasG, 09.06.2014
The instrument is a great practisetool, i can honestly say that its conveniant size has allowed me to practise more and has helped me to polish my fingertechnique. wich in effect has made me a better bassplayer.
It has a pretty high level of craftsmanship (for its pricerange) and it can take a fair amount of abuse before it fails you.
It might not have a top end clean tone for the big rig, but it takes you all the way there (and with a decent stomp/outboard effect you reach the finishline.

And to tip the scale from a great to an excellent deal, Thomann Musichaus was (as usual) outstanding.
I might live in another country, around 3000kilometers away, but Thoman still feels closer than my local musicstore.

Great Travel Bass
JimMan31, 08.12.2018
These are Gibson owned Steinbergersmade in China these days from Wood, not resin but certainly look the part painted up in these strong paints. Out of the box the set up is not bad but I made some adjustment to lthe bridge saddles and truss rod to get a slightly lower action. The Humbucker pickups have enough power and the Bass overall has a Trebly Piano-like tone. I also fitted a ¤25 active curcuit from Thomann with no routing for some extra tonal variation and punch but its personal taste. I ordered the 'drop D ' bridge version but this design doesnt work too well due to the D tune retainer screw rotates while playing, therefore does not hold its tuning. Go for the regular bridges version and you have a great travel Bass for not much money. The Bass is about 1m in length so a short scale version from Gibson would be a perfect travel Bass but this is better than other travel designs on the market in my opinion.
