Thomann 2W 3/4 Europe Double Bass

Double Bass

This 3/4 semi-solid double bass is built completely out of solid wood and is manufactured in Europe. It features a fingerboard made from blackwood, which in terms of sound behaviour, visual appearance and playing feel is a suitable alternative (equal) to ebony.

The blackwood used in the making of this instrument has been harvested from plantation pinewood (Pinus radiata), and has been used here to support the preservation of natural ebony resources and to protect rainforests.

  • Size: 3/4
  • Solid spruce top
  • Veneered back and sides
  • Fingerboard: blackwood
  • Individual machine heads
  • With Artino strings
  • Specially shaded slightly antique looking dark brown finish
  • Includes Bellacura care set consisting of a microfibre cloth and 20 ml Bellacura polish
  • Made in Europe
  • Set up in Germany at Thomann's string workshop

Please take note:

All our acoustic double basses are individually set and adjusted in our workshop in accordance to your desired playing situation and style (jazz, classical, rockabilly....). For online orders, please use the "Comment" text field to specify the desired string action. We kindly ask for your understanding regarding shipment delays of approx. 2-3 days due to these finishings and setting adjustments. Our double basses are delivered by the freight forwarding service Spedition. Regarding any questions, please contact our technical department directly at 09546 / 9223-370, or email streicher@thomann.de

Good double bass

Anja297, 21.04.2013
I have the double bass for several weeks now and I am very happy with it. The bass has a good sound and speaks well plucked as well as painted. The workmanship is also good. Mechanics and sting make a stable impression. The wood has a warm tone, the paint is semi-matt and very even.
The delivery was uncomplicated. The strings were raised. Only the bridge still had to be placed in the marked position. My teacher changed the bridge position slightly, otherwise the bass was ready to play.

In sum, I am very satisfied with the instrument, really good value for money.
