An excellent instrument by any standard, left hand, too!.
06.12.2015
It's well made, feels right, sounds great, looks great (better than the photos suggested) and it plays in tune too. That isn't always the case with inexpensive instruments - I check them out at the octave harmonics as well as using those handy clip-on tuners. It's not perfect above the octave, but very close. Close enough!
The finish and fit is excellent quality for the price. This is not a hand-made instrument, but it looks good and is fair value. The neck is well done and ours were straight and not twisted.
This was bought as a gift, but you can be sure that it was very thoroughly checked out before being handed over. And yes, I now own a right-hand one.
Playing a 'lefty' can be a hoot!
The B-Band pickup isn't a piezo - it's a contact cousin to those inexpensive electret microphones that have been around forever.
B-Band warn you that they take a bit of settling in, and I agree. The sound does improve after about a week of regular use, and it's pretty darn good to start with.
Like any bridge saddle contact pickup, the string-to-string balance is fixed. You can't "tilt the pickup" to even up the string response as on a bass guitar - so I'd recommend a compressor to help balance the string-to-string response - which will also vary with your tone selection. It also feels right and improves the feel in our view.
So whilst plugging it into a PA (or whatever) will sound good (even compared to my beloved Yamaha SB) it sounds/feels best if you use a compressor.
The Behringer Xenyx mixer compressor works fine, but the best one used to date was the Laney Richter RB3 bass combo amp compressor.
The built-in tone control is excellent!
A dramatic change in contour that goes from thin to PHATT with a very mellow tone in the middle. We do like it.
We liked pretty much everything, in fact.
The Aquila strings are unusual, if you're coming from a traditional bass or bass guitar, but they do work well. After a fortnight of play they feel great, a little string lube can help one get used to them. Hair oil or body lotion is a good substitute!
If you're coming from a guitar-bass or a traditional bass this one will feel very light and (almost) too easy to play - but if this is your first bass it's an excellent place to start.
And it is Left-Hand at a fair price!
Well done Thomann.
Left handed players of the world salute you.
Recommended for left-handed bassists.

Great value for money and easy to play
Cyprus Andrew, 16.04.2018
This is my second bass uke. My first is much smaller - around the size of tenor uke - this is more of a small guitar. However, the larger size means the strings have more tension and make it easier to play.

The built-in tuner is a bit disappointing - it cost it a "star" in the rating! - it switches to tuner mode automatically when you plug the uke in; so until you get used to that, you wonder why there's no sound coming out. And the tuner is a bit slow reporting if it's in tune.
