Intoxicating bass for the sky and hell

Technotel Cassandra Esspresso, 10.08.2018
Summary
The bass is perfectly processed and sounds great in every situation.
And he is a (design) classic on top of that.
The price / performance ratio is excellent - so: clear purchase recommendation.

processing
The workmanship is first class. Paint, pickguard, cover on the back - everything perfectly.
The open tuners (Willkinson) work without any play. The bass is perfect.
Fretboard and frets are very neat. No edges are noticeable.
The lacquered neck is pleasant to the touch. The playability is great.

The electrical system is passive, which in my view is an absolute plus. The output power is more than sufficient.
The pickups are connected in series and can be mixed together with one poti each.
The only tone control thus acts on both pickups together.
The pots afford a light, even rotation resistance. Very pleasant.

Optics and shape
The look of the Thunderbird is of course a matter of taste - as with all designer pieces.
And that's the Thunderbird after all. The shape is in any case very good to the player.
The bass is very well balanced.
Particularly noteworthy is the theme? Bicolor? in mechanics, writing and poti buttons.
That too is always such a thing. What does not come out so well in the pictures: The color of the metal parts is not easy? Silver? But have a slight nuance to bronze. Thus, the bicolor contrast is mitigated and looks very harmonious. Great.

sound
The bass is for studio purposes only? used.
He was tested with Two Notes Le Bass or SPL Frontliner - and then off to the DAW.
The bass sounds clean (Le Bass or Frontliner) just great and crisp. In my view, a bass must be just like that.
If you want less heights, then you simply turn them out or take a different mixing ratio of the pickups. And the sound gets warmer and softer.
With distortion (Le Bass) he is also great and absolutely heavy-suited.
Best listen, antesten.

Great price / performance ratio and clear purchase recommendation.

Good looking and good

Grundstrm, 27.12.2018
Sounds, plays and looks like a thunderbird should, in my opinion. Awesome good picks, resonant wood and easy-to-play neck. What reveals that after all it is a cheaper base is the tuning screws and the thick lacquer.

Sound-wise, it has everything you could wish for. Halsmicken alone gives a great sound with grainy middle register. With both buckets, the sound becomes tighter and a slightly retracted middle register. Just as it should be. Stallmicken alone sounds hard middle register without so much bass, which is also as expected.

Nice neck profile, a bit to jazz base. The balance is not the best, but that is not why you buy such a base.

The strings that were mounted were very subtle and basic. So they had to be replaced and the pickers had to be lowered a bit before it became as I wanted.
