Very good for the money
Kikki, 22.10.2020
I received my V9 yesterday and had the pleasure to make friends with it through the evening.
Not to surprising it needed a quick adjustment of a few things. At the 4th and 5th fret on the 1st string there were, and partly are, a deadspot. I have switched to a bit heavier La Bella nylon strings. With the increased tension the deadspt got a little less pronounced. I am going to adjust a little more when the materiels has adopted these adjustments more. I have a good feeiling about this.

There are a few things that are a bit odd about this bass.
This bass should, according to the listing at the webshop, have the heavy mass standard bridge. My bass however has the standard bridge with cylindrical stools.
Also it should have the rather cheap plastic knobs. Mine has the (very nice) aluminium-knobs that the V10 bass comes with.
So there's something about the quality-check that just does'nt add up. I am pleased alltogether so there is no big deal for me.

Pros: Insanely versatile pre-amp. Nicely crafted. Very good jazz-bass-ish sound. A lot better ergonomics compared to the V7.

Cons: Deadspot on the 1st string. Delivery not quite according to webshop. Need for adjustments. Intonation and trussrod (expected though).

Nur vom Feinsten
Goldmann, 03.08.2020
Ich benutze den V9 FL bei bestimmten Stücken, die den speziellen Sound eines bundlosen Basses benötigen. Als ich ihn ausgepackt hatte und erstmalig spielte, fiel mir sofort die sagenhafte Saitenlage und die besonders leichte Bespielbarkeit des Basses auf. Er ist sehr dünn und auch die Breite ist eher gering. Der Hals in mit Klarlack lackiert, was ihm ein besonders edles Aussehen verleiht. Doch erst wenn er verstärkt wird, zeigt er sich von der edelsten Seite. Schon im passiven Modus hat er eine große Klangfülle, die im aktiven Modus sprunghaft ansteigt. Sensationell, welche Klangvariation sich hier durch leichtes Verstellen der Potis erzielen lassen. Ich empfehle, sich die Stellung der Potis genau aufzuschreiben, damit die Sounds reproduzierbar werden. Zum schnellen Wechseln empfehle ich den oberen Teil des ersten Doppel-Potis oder auch im aktivem Modus den letzten Knopf, der als Bass-EQ fungiert. Da ich den Daumen zum Abstützen beim Zupfen benutze, kommt mir auch die Lage des halsnahen Tonabnehmers sehr gelegen. Für Bassisten, die ein Plektron benutzen, empfehle ich die Montage der mitgelieferten Abdeckung.

Absolut zufrieden
Lukas Faust, 01.04.2019
Nachdem ich zuerst ein Exemplar bekam, bei dem die A-Saite am Sattel stark schnarrte und der Bass sonst auch nicht gut eingestellt war, obwohl er ja angeblich durch die Qualitätskontrolle gegangen ist, habe ich bei Thomann angerufen und mir wurde angeboten das Gerät umzutauschen. Deshalb bin ich schnell zur Serviceannahme gefahren und habe ohne Probleme ein anderes Exemplar erhalten, welches perfekt eingestellt ist und keine Mängel aufweist. Der Bass lässt sich super spielen, ist komfortabel und hat einen guten Sound. Bin also nun doch mehr als zufrieden mit meinem ersten Fretless-Bass und kann ihn nur weiterempfehlen ;)
