Ein toller Bass
Tombass, 28.05.2018
Lange habe ich nach einem shortscale fretless Bass gesucht. Ich hatte die preiswerte Alternative von Harley Benton ausprobiert. Da ich aber bereits zwei Höfners besitze und weiß wie sie klingen, ist das keine wirkliche Alternative. Aus Verzweilung bin ich auf eine fretless Bass-Ukulele gekommen, das klingt zwar toll, sieht aber nicht wirklich seriös aus, halt wie ein Spielzeug. Der Supro Huntington fretless hat mir gut gefallen, aber der ist echt schwer und das Griffbrett relativ breit. Dagegen lässt sich das zierliche Griffbrett des Höfners wunderbar bespielen. Der Klang ist überragend. Schön weich und gewaltig in den tiefen Frequenzen. Dass man sich wie beim Original aus den 60ern auf nur einen Gurtpin am unteren Korpusende beschränkt, halte ich für übertrieben authentisch. Der zweite Gurtpin wird aber mitgeliefert, da muss man das Loch dafür selber bohren. Auf der oberen Seite des Griffbretts befinden sich Markierungen für Bünde, die sich als sehr hilfreich für die Intonation erweisen. Dadurch konnte ich den Bass ohne Eingewöhnunszeit sofort auf der Bühne einsetzen. Ich habe den Bass bereits bei etlichen Auftritten mit meinem akustischen Bluestrio, meiner New Orleans Jazzband und mit meinem Chanson-Projekt eingesetzt und bin sehr zufrieden mit dem wunderbaren Instrument.

Toller Sound, aber ein Denkfehler
Bluesy1905, 26.11.2018
Ein tolles Instrument, über den Sound muss ich hier nichts erzählen. Da ist sofort etwas von Paul McCartney zu hören ... und das meine ich nicht negativ! Der Bass hat etwas vollkommen Einzigartiges in seinem Klang.

Und vor allem ist dies der einzige halbakustische Bass ohne Bünde, den ich finden konnte. Zudem: Die Bundpositionen sind auf der Seite sehr sauber markiert. Toll!

Aber (und damit disqualifiziert sich der Bass für mich): Es sind nur die Bünde markiert, nicht jedoch die Hauptpositionen! Nicht einmal der 12. Bund. Was soll das? Ich möchte nicht erleben, dass ich auf hell erleuchteter Bühne einen Halbton höher greife. Das erspare ich mir. Ich weiß, dass es unter der Würde der meisten Fretless-Spieler ist, überhaupt Markierungen zu haben. Ich denke da anders.

Klanglich: großartig. Nur kann ich das Teil so nicht spielen. Ich werde mir wohl einen bundierten Halbakustischen kaufen, um dann die Bünde herauszureißen!
