Can't Put It Down!
TomBob, 06.09.2014
Ok, lets start with the build quality; lovely selection of woods used to make a visually pleasing instrument with great tone and resonance. Normally when you buy an instrument of any value it will need to be set up as intonation will be off, or it will have a buzzy fret or that action is just slightly too high or low for your own personal tastes, this is only the second instrument I've bought that has been perfect and ready to play instantly (which is just as well as with that lovely rose on the sound hole, i'm not sure how I wold get to the truss rod if i needed to).

acoustic sound is fantastic for the money, bright and resonates well, this is strung with octave drinks on the G and the D, and really adds a sweetness to the sound. The pickup element is very gain, Once i managed to get the mid frequencies eq'd on my preamp I was ok, but the sound did drive to start with, much more than i expected.

Overall I would question spending more money on another bouzouki when this one is so good for the price I paid, my only real criticism is the case it came with is perfect for transporting and of better quality than the photos show, the front pocket on the one that arrived has no zip head on it so the pocket can't be opened or closed. In other words its worth buying and enjoyable enough that you'll want to splash out on a hard case for it after.

Great quality for the price
Richard2288, 03.04.2015
Here in the UK we can find similar models to Thomann's M1089-P, but they are twice the price of Thomann. After that, there's not a lot available until you're spending at least £6-700 for an Irish Bouzouki with a pickup.

The Thomann's PU model I received is very well-built of good-looking, even-grained wood front and back; the varnish and polish is very even and covers all joints and crannies (something cheaper instruments used to fall down on). It is maybe a little boring in design (the headstock is very plain and I don't personally like the stuck-on carved soundhole that much), but overall it has a very honest, workmanlike design that carries through to the sound. I'd rather have a plain instrument than one covered in tatty bling.

Most importantly for a fixed bridge instrument, the intonation and the setup is excellent and the sound across the fingerboard is very even and lively. The pickup with 3-band EQ is fair, and considering this was the main reason I was looking for this type of instrument I'm more than pleased. I may well restring it with unisons on the lower two (it comes in octaves), which will mean a little fettling with the nut, but other than that I could tune and play this straight out of the box - which is exactly what I did, for most of the evening. :-)

A £1,000 bouzouki will have more depth of tone, but this instrument cost me £180 and I'm very pleased with it. Thanks, Thomann.
