Really nice acoustic bass

HermannL, 08.04.2017
After 15 years I have once again made a new acoustic bass and the Ortega it should be! So ordered, on the third day really fast already there (Austria)!
After unpacking: the instrument is impeccably processed, at least I have so far not been able to discover anything that would have given rise to criticism, optically an eyewitness and makes after small adjustments much joy.
I have also the factory adjusted far backwards (convex) adjusted neck forwards adjusted, with the included Allen key done fast, the slightly high side position I have left. Without amplification the volume is clearly not comparable with a double bass, which I did not expect synonymous.
Instead of the original strings (sound somewhat dull for my taste) I have Elixir Nanoweb Light wound up, which gives the part a brighter, more silky sound, which comes across our PA also well. Also over bass amplifiers the acoustic bass differs in the sound clearly from my feet, even if some of the singing sound is lost.
I use the bass especially when the whole band plays on acoustic instruments, as an alternative to the double bass.
I would particularly like to mention the comfortable armrest, which is the hammer! Why has not anyone come to this?
In short, an interesting instrument at a fair price, as I mean!

Good, but expandable

The Ortega StripeDSU-ACB is actually a good acoustic bass, sounds good with and without amplifiers, is mostly well processed, also looks good .... but:
In the form supplied to me hardly playable. It must be improved:
1. The orginal strings are not acceptable for me, sound miserable and make unnecessary "noises". I exchanged them at the same time against ELIXIR Nanoweb Light. This sounds like the guitar as I imagine.
2. The neck is set far too far convex, so for "rear" set ... this rattles and crashes both with the original strings, as well as with the Elixir Nanoweb. So first adjust the neck carefully. This is thanks to the included imbus with patience and feeling relatively easy.
3. The holes on the bridge are too big for the included plastic pins, which means that the pins do not pinch properly and the strings are not tight enough. Ortega would have made more points with high-quality pins and more precise drilling.
4. The built-in pickup system is ok for this price class, but also a more careful installation would be desirable - the pickup and the strings should not be installed "jammed" when delivered. This leads to unequal volume in the strings. Mention is also given to the tune function - it works satisfactorily with all strings.
Conclusion: First of all to the work or the guitar builder, then you have a lot of fun on this instrument
