Incredible quality-price ratio

Jean-Christophe318, 23.01.2018
At the aesthetic level, everything is always a question of taste ... I love this bass: sober and clean lines. Then, it is of a completely correct weight and is perfectly balanced. A small flat (but I quibble) would be that it comes with standard straps buttons, I would have preferred it to be original with Dunlop or Schaller.
On the sound side, it's very interesting. First, it sounds in all positions. A friend, bass teacher and excellent bass player himself (of course ...) also tried it. We were all amazed by the fact that by switching from one microphone to another, putting it active or passive, and whatever the EQ chosen, it sounds beautifully, with a constant volume and demonstrates extraordinary versatility. She goes from an accuracy to a musicman, through a host of other possibilities.
I ask myself the question of the asset / liability: by putting it passive, the setting of the EQ remains present ... in my opinion, it ate the pile a little anyway but it is a detail; I prefer to keep this possibility anyway, especially since the difference between the 2 modes is really interesting!
The substain is also very good.
The original strings are a little thin and soft, you should plan to change them quickly (and suddenly a small adjustment of the handle).
For the rest, it can suit a lot of music styles. I play mostly rock and I'm not disappointed.

Great

02.12.2016
First, thank you Thomann for his service always on top!

After a few weeks of use here is what I can say in summary:

Very versatile bass with an impeccable finish. Easy to use, it takes a little time to use all the nuances of settings.

The handle is very nice. For information, I have an Ibanez SDGR whose handle is very thin. Well, the handle of the Sandberg is, for me, even better than wider.

Slap is a feast of ease.

I had hesitated with Sire Marcus Miller. I tried both. The choice was obvious to me even considering the price difference.

In short, for me the perfect bass that I will keep for life.
