What a beast!

Leon G., 02.11.2009
When I connected the Epiphone Thunderbird-IV Gothic for the first time to my amplifier, I just thought: Wow!

I really can not understand why so many people criticize Epiphone. I have not had a single processing problem with this part since I bought the bass. The processing is really for this price class very fine cream. And he looks cool, too! The matte black creates a real rock n roll look and is easy to remove from greasy spots and the like.

The sound of the Thunderbird is made clear and clear for hard stuff. The pickups drift to your ears and ensure a decent bass, so that even in the Higain solo storm of the gitarrespielende band colleague does not go down. Unfortunately the Thunderbird is not very variable in this regard, because the pickups sound almost the same, the difference is too minimal. Many people also complain about the incredible headlights of the Thunderbird models.
Personally it did not really bother me, because I only fingerstyle and with Plectron play and thus my arm on the body can support. I believe, however, that there could be serious problems with the headlift when working.

The only thing that really bothered me with the bass is the bridge. It is not a fixed bridge, but it is held by the string of the strings. That's why she makes a string change quite annoying, because the string riders like to drop out of the bridge.

This is my only point of criticism and in my opinion is for such a small price quite manageable.

Epiphone thunderbird

Guillaume423, 18.06.2011
Here is a bass with good value for money.
First, the ergonomics of the bass is rather good with a body that allows sitting seamlessly. The handle is nice to play, only the last 3 boxes are a little harder to access. However the bass tends to be severely bent at the level of the head.

As for the sound, humbuckers play their role well and are relatively aggressive which tends to more oriented towards a rock / hardrock / metal register.
One senses the difference of sound between the 2 microphones when one uses only one. A rather warm and round sound is obtained quite easily.
