Great part for small money, but a bit more improvement
Manfred216, 12.02.2011
Praise to the Thomann service-perfect procedure.

I had the HotRod 5 Bass for a long time irritated, for so little money that can be nothing, visually, it is an eye-catcher in beautiful vintage style.

Surely one should not be overly sensitive to the price, but on the whole really good.

The sound is surprisingly good and can easily be measured with more expensive basses.
The playability is conditional, the saddle was not deeply notched at the 1 bunch you had to push the strings very much, my files had to help somewhat (threeteenths, are a good value), collar was perfect, after the turn down of the strings no ring Or rattling the strings.

The neck width of 46mm at the saddle is still, he should not have been narrower, approx. 70mm at the last waist also lie nicely in the hand.

The only thing I did not like is the bridge, no guide the adjuster and the string space is at the bridge only 16mm, which is somewhat tight for fingered and popping while slapping. Since you could buy a better bridge, I have the HotRod 5 another bridge with a18mm String-Space donated, now the bass is perfect.

Warning: if you do not want to do this, do not use 18mm, otherwise the H and G strings go past the last fret, next to the fretboard. But you should already have craft skills.

I am totally satisfied after the small conversion and can only recommend the bass. I play bass since 1969, think you can allow a judgment.

For every 5-string
UweK, 06.02.2011
Hey, a cheap, colorful 5-string! As a guitarist, this was the reason for the purchase (you do not have to specify an instrument). The red is so transparent that one can see the grain very well (the paint shows only small blemishes, but nothing that is not caused by playing;)). The pickguard fits very well to the red and the potentiometers offer enough resistance, so as not to adjust. Apropro Poti Buttons: Off Metal! A nice feature. Many take only the plastic buttons.

The neck is full, and is very good in the hand, but only after some play is smooth enough for faster runs!

It offers a dry, balanced and very pleasant basic. But sound is always a matter of taste. At the amp, it does not sound .... the bass remains at home as a change to the guitar.

Only weak points:
The attitude was still not good enough for me. For an absolute bass beginner this is more than ideal!
The head is more of a modern Fender style head and very copulous, even on the belt. There will probably be a conversion due to me :) But do not disturb me.

A total of:
Who wants to call a nice 5-string its own or who simply wants to test times, whether it is one: ACCESS !!!! Here you can not go wrong. Only if you do not access. Have fun playing.
