Great bass to play live - So happy!

16.02.2016
When I ordered this bass I wasn't really sure what it would be like - just a pretty toy or a real jobbing instrument.

I needed to replace my usual acoustic jumbo bass which is difficult to use in a live situation where amplification caused feedback issues and it just didn't quite cut it. So I looked around for another acoustic instrument and this beauty caught my eye.

So I bought this without knowing anything other than it's pretty and really had no expectations - risky!

Anyway - it arrived and I unpacked it, removed the foam protection from under the floating wooden bridge and reset the intonation (a bit tricky - use a good tuner!). I played it and all appeared good - easy to play, quiet unplugged but pickups work well with a good choice of tone from the 3 way selector and tone controls. It has a good woody tone that nicely reflects an acoustic instrument rather than an "acoustic looking" electric bass. I guess this is down to it being a real hollow bodied guitar.

The big test was to play live....

Amazing! Absolutely blown away at the sound quality, how easy it was to EQ and the power and response you can feel & hear through the whole thing when played live.

As a bass player I'm not used to much audience feedback - but in this case I had amazing comments from people, both about the sound and the look of the instrument.

I took a risk because it's new and I could find no reviews etc, so my opinion is I would recommend this to anyone needing an acoustic bass to play live & amplified.

Nice player

10.03.2016
I have approached the AFBV because of the vintage finishes.
The look is authentically made on "old", the processing 1a, the frets are neatly dressed (with binding). The neck super to play.

When I looked at the pictures, the very practical, but "modern" trussrod cover on the headstock disturbed me. I was all the more surprised that I found in the box a replaceable cover, which consists of the material of the pick-guards and optically (I think) much better to the vintage charm fits. This speaks for the loving overall design of this bass.

The sound is surprisingly audible and can be compared with the other acoustic bass (not for a double bass) (enough for the sofa). Electric is also good. The lower layers on the front PU sound almost like a double bass. With Flatwounds is certainly even better (but I did not try).

The only thing that bother me is that the upper layers are only conditionally applicable. The E-string is almost no longer to be used really from the 10th Bund onwards, the A- and D-string from 12/15. Federation. Only the G-string also sounds up to the 22nd Bund. Unfortunately, I have too little experience to be able to judge whether the "design-typical" or a characteristic of this bass is. It is also questionable whether you really need these layers in the music where you use this bass. If you move anyway in the lower layers is all good.

Processing is in terms of price / performance top and optically this bass is anyway on the stage DER Reisser :)
