Perfect

AliD, 18.05.2016
In my Coverrock-Classicrock-Band, we played more and more pieces, which actually required a 5 string.
The quality requirements were set: a new bass had to be better than my old 5 string from Yamaha (no art piece) and he has to play in the league like my Fender Jazz Bass Custom Shop Relic 64. The air is already thinner.
To go to Thomann was the time too short and the way too far (about 300 km), so I decided to put the "order joker".
I was determined to leave the bass back and order the next one. It did not happen. Unpacked, played, kept.
Meanwhile, I have some performances and a lot of band tests with the bass behind me. I am very pleased with my decision, my bandmates as well.
Equipment: volume control, crossover control for the pickup with lockable center position, tone control, this button can be pulled out to switch off the active electronics, double control for treble and depth, goes only when the active electronics, battery is switched on.
The bass is also passive to play.
A "user manual" in the form of a DIN A 4 sheet is included.
Processing, varnish and hardware are of the finest, but were also expected at nearly 3,000, - Euro.
There are hardly any limits to sound, the bass can do everything. Remarkable is the regularity and regularity of the notes, even with the deep empty H string, no diminution of sound and pressure, everything as it is. Also no unpleasant hubbing of individual tones, no matter in which situation one is currently.
He has to play with a pleasant ease, I have not yet had to turn on any screw for adjusting the neck, string position or octave purity.
A bag is supplied (backpack carrier and handle, 3 side pockets), several times upholstered, especially at critical points. Even the quality of the bag surprised me. Nevertheless, I have ordered a hard case. There is now no longer synonymous.

I would buy this bass again at this price.
Why I took it in red? Because.
