I actually like it...
Robert6560, 15.01.2015
I was very satisfied about the way thomman sorted out the shipping of this bass to the UK. This is my first double bass witch i purchased to learn basics and slapping. The bass its self is beautyfull. I always say, an instrument should catch your attention with its appearance, should attract you to wish playing 'em more, inspire you to just go further and learn, achive and succeed. This instrument's been me best playmate in the past couple months, and I feel the progress. I think remarkable progress can't be achived with a poorly built instrument. The bass ain't solid, but the music I'm into doesn't require such a full tone that a solid body bass might provide. It comes with pretty high tension steel (or whatsoever) string witch gonna rip your fingers off, but in fact, will train them. The machine heads are little instable, but what to expect?.... these are all them features easily could be changed by the user. The real value is in the body its self, and the price.... Great bass to start... as a starter the 2k bass will sound rubbish within your hands too. When you're a pro, the cheapest bass will do as well. The main thing's the technique innit?

Beginner bass.
Melker, 30.01.2015
This is not the kind of bass you use for bowing solos in front of a philharmonic orchestra, but that was never the purpose of this bass.
I started out with one of these and it held up for several years of rockabilly abuse without letting me down. I trashed it around on stage, stood on it, pimped it with stickers and paint, had it scratced and played it outdoors. Lots of fun!
It has a weaker sound than more expensive basses, sure, and the tonal quality isn't that exciting either. But for a beginner, this is something to get you started, just make sure it is properly adjusted (go for the "Jazz" setup, unless you're strong as the incredible hulk) and if you feel the need for something more expensive after a couple of years, you can still keep this one for experiments or combat gigs out in the street!

Double bass Rockabilly

Great sound in combination with shadow pickups. Strong construction. Just changed the strings to have a better slap.

If i ever need to buy a new one it would be a Thomann again.

Great value for money - highly recommended!
Alan9751, 11.08.2014
At the price it is really difficult to criticise this instrument and I would recommend it highly to anyone starting out on Rockabilly slap bass. Great service & delivery from Thomann too. Will definitely shop with Thomann again.

Great for begginers

Great value for beginners like me. It doesn't break, sounds good with a set of new strings like D'Addario or Pirastro. All around good doublebass.
