Great sounding acoustic bass

BladeRunner, 13.03.2018
I bought this bass because I needed it for an acoustic project, and Steve Harris played Ovation basses live so I was hooked immediately, because I'm a big Maiden fan.
The sound is crystal clear and sharp + it doesn't loos the bottom end because of his big round body so it sounds huge. You wont be disappointed with the electronics and the tone. Listen to the intro of "Blood on the worlds hand" from X factor and you'll get the idea.
The only thing I would like to point out that its very unbalanced when you stand up or sit down, and you have to get used to it's round body, its very different from standard acoustic body's. I would recommend trying it first If you have the possibility, but if you're familiar with the Ovation body's and they fit you, you will have no problem.

Good instrument

Gérard960, 19.04.2013
Aesthetic very successful, overall finish very satisfactory, nice handle, but serious problem of shrinking: the ground rope is unplayable from the 15th to the 17th case, it is the freight of 17 ° which touches, although it is in Post-manufacturing principle.
By raising the bridge at best it frizes unpleasantly with an action too high anyway.
Great thanks to Thomann customer service for their responsiveness and diligence: return of the instrument and standard exchange. This time the bass is perfect, excellent sound projection in acoustics, even surprising given the volume of the case. Good amplification efficiency and equalization. Overall this time very satisfied
