Love it
Waggs, 08.08.2019
Wanted a short scale bass for a while and decided to go for this one as I have other Ibanez guitars and like them a lot.
Had to set it up a bit, truss rod adjustment, bridge lowered and I also had to lower the pick ups as when I was playing hard the strings would hit the magnets and make a horrible bang.
Now it's a wonderful bass to play. I find it so easy to fly around the fret board. Really nice neck.
Only problem is the balance of the instrument, bit of neck dive when standing and playing. But I have to say when I am home and practicing this is the bass I always pick up.
Sounds like a large bass. very pleased with it and will never part with it.

A good budget bass
Michael W. 151, 23.05.2017
Due to neck problems, I needed a more manageable bass - short-scale was called for. I looked around, tried some and decided on the Talman.

Finish and quality are very good and it is a very good player with a similarly good sound - the pickups are fine and I don't feel the need to upgrade them.

However, especially given my reason for buying the bass, it is a neck diver in a big way. I've deducted a star from 'Quality' for this reason alone.

To alter the balance, I fitted Schaller Light heads (recommended but 2L+2R aren't sold by Thomann) and a Schaller 3D bridge (which is sold by Thomann). At ¤140 for the extras, that almost doubles the price of the bass - but it is now a very nicely balanced bass.

So, I now have an excellent short-scale bass that has a great, punchy sound but is not light on the bass end.

I can recommend the bass, no doubt, but buyers should be aware of the balance problem.

Separately, Thomann's usual amazing service made buying from them a pleasure.
