Unbeatable value!

Steve619, 04.08.2014
Very impressed with this! The build quality is simply amazing on both the neck and body. It doesn't feel like an entry level instrument. This is a quality item.

The only reservation I have (which would be simply remedied) is that the pots don't feel perfectly smooth in use. They don't crackle though, they sound smooth, but I'd probably want to upgrade them at some time, maybe.

The other hardware is decent enough. The tuners and bridge pieces are smooth to operate and the pick-ups seem fine. The battery box is much better than the one on my Ibanez SR500. The modern D-shape neck is comfortable and encouraging to play. Its a little wider at the nut than my SR-500 (which is more of a jazz style profile), but its still easy to get around.

As a playing instrument, this bass is amazing. It also has a really good tone range. You could pretty much play any style of music with this.

Well done for Thomann for package and delivery too. Came well packed and reached me in the UK in less than four days. Excellent service.

Surprising sound for a cheap bass

Klaar, 10.08.2018
I was doubtful before buy this fretless because the low price. When I received the bass I forthwith noticed a very long and lovely sustain playing the strings without connect it to the amp, so I watched better the body and the neck and I thought that it's build very well for a so entry level gear. The strings though are not that good, give an idea about the bass power. Then I connect it on an Warwick Combo Sweet 15.2 and I tasted a surprising good sound from the pickups. After an hour of testing I changed the strings with D'Addario ECB81 flatwound that obviously give a more warm but a less brilliant sound, anyway the HB B-450FL returned an honest good sound. I think the B-450FL is a very deal for who want start to play a fretless and a battle or double for who just get a more professional fretless. I mean that the price/quality balance is WINNER!!!!
