Brilliant!
01.10.2016
I was looking for a bass that wasn't as big and clunky as others, but also had enough pickups to really be able to play with the tone, and this does that brilliantly!
There wasn't a lot of stuff online about this bass, but if you're looking for a smaller bass that sounds and plays just as good as bigger ones, then this is for you. It seem quite underrated, honestly.
It also keeps tune. Like, it just keeps tunes. What more can you ask for?
Would recommend for beginners to intermediates, as by the time you get to pro you'll already know what you want and have bigger better basses to play with, but until then, this will satisfy the funk perfectly.

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.

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.

Home recording bass
Axe71, 16.07.2019
After relocating I was looking for a short scale bass for my home recordings. You cannot go wrong with buying a brand like Ibanez. I have already recorded with it and being a guitarist I prefer the short scale both play wise and space wise. Maybe the headstock with the heads could have been better positioned, D string is so far from the rest, comes to a bit of a stretch when I tune it before recordings

short scale large fun
Andy101, 28.12.2018
This is a terrific little instrument. Plays fine, well set up, decent pickups and tuning heads. For the money, if you're after a short scale bass then you can't go wrong really with this one. It punches way above its weight.
The only thing I'm less keen on is the shape of the head, but whatever, not a big deal.
