A simple but effective bass

Florence L., 24.02.2014
A fretless 5 strings acoustic without unnecessary frills, minimal electronic (desired) and a sleeve that I adopted in a few minutes.

The Thomann philosophy: the case originally included was no longer on the German pages of the site, but was still on the French pages, the only ones I consulted. Thomann offered me a superb one. Thank you!!!

Beautiful acoustics bass

14.12.2015
For unplugged sessions, I needed an acoustic bass, and that was also fretless and 5-string. After some basses were tested and sent back at the lower price level, I realized that I should spend a few more euros.

Finally, I discovered this 5-string Warwick Rockbass Alien-fretless at Thomann. Visually for me already times very appealing. Then ordered, as always great Thomann service within a short time!

Unpacked ... and frankly almost packed and returned:

Strings: an impertinence! Far too high, not exactly favored by thick finished strings.

The pickup controllers I had to look for, which are hidden and can be operated through the soundhole, also the very economical and for me not understandable, why Warwick at this point has saved. There is a sound and a volume regulator available, ok by Fishmann, but in this price class you can expect different! There are far more favorable acoustic basses with a better sound control.

Another (included) belt pin I had to screw on the neck itself, not comprehensible, not everyone plays sitting.

Enough enough: other strings on it (Rotosound 35er), thanks to the (ingenious) adjustable saddle was then also a very good string position adjustable. Now the part is fun to play.
Then I still needed a Boss Bass EQ GEB7 acquired, and now the sun rises, am completely satisfied.

Conclusion: meanwhile with some own performance a great bass. Sounds good, looks good.
