An Excellent Bass !!

One Again, 16.01.2017
My Bass Sandberg California 2 TM5 RW TS HG received 15 days ago by Thomann in perfect condition, is really my favorite Bass.

I love the sunburst which is really beautiful and its ease of play that I have found on any other Bass 5 strings.

The handle is quite thin, which allows to play effortlessly, and after a small adjustment by a Luthier, and the GHS 45/130 string set is nirvana !!

The sound is quite versatile and really excellent in each of its possibilities, for my part I play Blues, Blues-Rock, Blues-Funk and Soul. I play only on the bass microphone, adjusting all the buttons in the middle and the small switch backwards to enjoy the bridge pickup entirely. The big sound is there !!

The sound is a bit closer to a Music Man and it's really nice, but you can also have other kind of sound, with all possible settings.

I play with this bass especially in active mode, because the dynamics is impressive; It does not necessarily need more compression, and all the notes on the stick sound good.

I just added a VT Bass Tech 21 effect pedal to get the Ampeg sound with my Markbass amp that is very neutral.

In conclusion: A really Excellent Bass !! Yihahh !!
