Outstanding.
MattiasG, 09.06.2014
The instrument is a great practisetool, i can honestly say that its conveniant size has allowed me to practise more and has helped me to polish my fingertechnique. wich in effect has made me a better bassplayer.
It has a pretty high level of craftsmanship (for its pricerange) and it can take a fair amount of abuse before it fails you.
It might not have a top end clean tone for the big rig, but it takes you all the way there (and with a decent stomp/outboard effect you reach the finishline.

And to tip the scale from a great to an excellent deal, Thomann Musichaus was (as usual) outstanding.
I might live in another country, around 3000kilometers away, but Thoman still feels closer than my local musicstore.

Better than you might think of it
ProgBass, 02.07.2014
I play rock and heavy metal and tried the steinberger pedal as it is of wood and passive pickups, a typical constellation for rock music, as other bass brands take this combination, too. Take the cheap steinberger bass strings and you'll get the desired sound. It really is some kind of dry and produces a great passive rock tone

Tolles Instrument und sein Geld wert!
Thomas SC, 28.07.2012
Nach sagenhaft schneller Lieferung gleich ausgepackt. Der Bass macht einen sauber verarbeiteten Eindruck. Die dazugehörige Gigbag ist für den vorsichtigen Transport geieignet. Die seiliche Tasche ist etwas schlapperig.
Nach kurzer Inspektion sind keine Mängel sichtbar - alles in Ordnung.Seitenlageeinstellung und Bundreinheit mit dem mitgelieferten Werkzeug korrigiert dann das erste Anspielen über Kopfhörer (Proberaum kommt später) - der Hals lässt sich gut greifen, nichts kratzt. Die Saiten sind etwas grob. das Finish des Basses ist sehr gut

Der Sound ist von knochig trocken knurrig bis hin zu warm und voll - je nach Abnehmereinstellung.
Mich überzeugt der Klang - entspricht den im Netz zu findenden Soundbeispiele. Der Ausgangspegel der Abnehmer ist allerdings etwas schwach, stellt aber kein Problem dar. Die ausklappbare Stütze aus Metall ist für das Spielen im Sitzen wirklich praktisch. Ungewohnt ist allerdings der weit nach links reichende Hals - daran muß man sich gewöhnen. Umgehängt am Gurt kann ich keine merkbare Koplastigkeit erkennen. Das Stimmen am Korpus klappt prima auch wenn man aus Gewohnheit immer links ins Leere greift - Headless eben.

Coole Optik und geringe Abmessungen sowie niedrieges Gewicht sprechen für das Instrument von Steinberger. Mehr zum Sound nach der ersten Probe mit der Band.

---

So, die Bandprobe war mit demXT-2 ein voller Erfolg.
Die Gain-Einstellung am Amp musste um 25% erhoht werden und etwas mehr Bass rein - dann passte Alles. Der Sound aufgrund des harten Holzes eher knurrig hart (mit 2mm Plek gespielt) und sehr gutem Sustain!. Die Töne kamen sehr sauber und präzise - das fiel auch meinen Bandkollegen sofort auf.
Nach kurzer Eingewöhnung und Feintuning am Amp lief dann alles prima.
So hab' ich den Sound erwartet - etwas knurriger und irgendwie genauer als meine J und MM Bässe, d.h. auch Fehler fallen deutlicher auf.
Das geringe Gewicht ist dabei als sehr angenehm zu bewerten.
Meine Bandkollegen, und mich natürlich, hat der Steinberger XT-2 voll überzeugt und trifft unsere Vorstellung des Bassklanges.
So long !
