Love at second sight

Michael B, G., 29.01.2015
After I started playing bass on an IBANEZ shortshell model just over two years ago, I was ready for an "adult" bass.
When reading the reviews, the Basic Ken Taylor model from Sandberg of the versatility and quality seemed best suited to me. Sandberg offers on his homepage a configurator, with which one can create his wish bass. I would have been able to order this from Thomann, but without any feedback. Since I also wanted to test the playability, I let the stock in stock 3-tone sunburst model come to try.

After I had unpacked the instrument I liked the bass quite well and I could even imagine to keep it. But first I had to test now whether I would be right at all. I was surprised how smoothly the game worked, although I was used to Shortscale.

The instrument came perfectly set and is processed without blemish. Only the H-string sounded somewhat dull and undifferentiated. By pressing on the string rider, I could help the string to be more clear, ie the problem was related to the string and not to the instrument. In the meantime, I have re-recorded a 110s by d'Addario as a H-string, which has less tension, but it sounds clear and differentiated.

Due to the adjustment possibilities on the sound control and the possibility of switching the two humbuckers to singlecoil, the bass offers a comprehensive range of sounds even in the passive mode and is therefore suitable for every music style and application purpose.

Now the 30-day test phase runs out and I like the timeless 3-tone-sunburst finish with each day better. I will keep this bass as a partner for life.

A suggestion to Thomann for the dispatch I would have: In the area of ??the mechanics the Gigbag inside probably by the string ends at the dispatch shards and a (tiny) hole got. Such damage is likely to be avoided if this area of ??the instrument is wrapped with napkin.

Price / performance ratio outstanding

Thomas630, 30.12.2010
I've been playing the bass for 9 months now and am still thrilled. The bass is noticeable to me when testing about 15 basses of different brands and price categories with its very clear, defined and powerful sound. Due to its two MM-Style PU's, the possibility of splitting on single coils, as well as its three-tone sound control, it offers a lot of sound possibilities. From restrained, gently overpiped to growl, everything is possible here. It is comfortable to wear with about 4 kg.

In addition to this, it should be noted that inquiries at Sandberg - no matter what - were answered quickly and very helpfully. Here a personal customer service is still genuine.
