A working horse for a student and professional

JustinasK, 24.11.2017
The bass arrived on a small pallete in a vertical box, packed in several layers of different cushioning material. No worries about it being damaged while getting to your home. Polishing kit as also included with the package.

Few notes about the looks and quality. The color is much darker, especialy the top, which is dark red-brown. The ribs and back looks very attractive with flaming Tineo patterns all across the body, while the top is just one color - uninteresting at all. You get golden Rubner (?) tuners on the scroll - different than in the photos, but more modern looking. One downside is a lacquering job which is just mediocre. Many poorly covered spots and small air bubles stuck in the lacquer all across the instrument, also some minor dents on the ribs. If you care about the looks, a days work with sandpaper and polisher should do the job. Otherwise, the build quality itself is good and sturdy. The string action is a bit too high but playable without reshaping the bridge and nut (I asked for a Jazz setup). The strings are ok for a student, so you can start playing as soon as the instrument arrives.

I had one issue with the endpin plug, which was leaning a bit towards the tailpiece because the plug was a bit too narrow for the socket. But Thomann had this resolved with no issues.

All in all - a fine instrument, worth your money. Made in Czech Republic so you can be sure that the bass is going to work for you many years to come.

Good double bass in relation to its price

27.05.2016
For the price it has, it is a good study instrument. The sound is clear, with a very pleasant and well defined bass. With a very nice touch.
The finish in general leaves a little to be desired, since in my case, at least some parts were not well finished, and it lacked some lacquer and some finer sandpaper, as is the case of the union of the mast with the Body and with the headstock, which were little reviewed. They lacked lacquering, leaving a small patch uncoated in these areas.
Of course this does not affect the sound, which I consider to be very good. Most important parts, such as the tuning fork if they are very well finished.
The bridge does not come well adjusted at all, nor in height, which I understand since it is something particular of each one, nor in the base, being in some zone, 1 mm of space between the base of the bridge and the cover. But it's nothing a good luthier can not fix.
Despite this, I consider that it is a great choice within the laminated double basses, since there is an important quality jump compared to others of lower range.
