Double Bass

This solid wood 3/4 double bass, made in Europe, has a blackwood fingerboard, a great alternative to ebony in terms of sound, look and feel.

The blackwood, harvested from plantation pinewood (Pinus radiata), is used to preserve natural ebony resources and protect rainforests.

  • Size: 3/4
  • Top: Solid spruce
  • Bottom and sides: Solid maple
  • Fingerboard: Blackwood
  • Single machine heads
  • With D'Addario Helicore strings
  • Wash finish: Shaded, slightly antique-looking lacquer finish
  • Includes Bellacura care set consisting of microfibre cloth and 20 ml Bellacura
  • Made in Europe
  • Made ready to play in Germany in the Thomann specialist string-instrument workshop

Please note:

All acoustic double basses are adjusted and set up individually in our workshop for the desired playing situation/style (jazz, classical, rockabilly, ...). For online orders, please use the "Comment" text field to specify the desired action. We ask for your understanding that shipping will be delayed by approx. two to three days due to these finishing and setting operations. Double basses are delivered by freight carrier.

A lovely well made double bass

14.02.2015
I've had this double bass for about 4 months now, I chose it after checking out all sorts of reviews and was a little concerned over buying an instrument I couldn't try out first. It came quickly and was easy enough to setup (install the bridge and tune it up).

The first thing I did was to arrange for my luthier to set it up. I had asked Thomann for a jazz setup though I would guess it was closer to an orchestral setup if anything and strung with D'Addario Helicore Orchestra strings which are best for bowing and not very good for pizz. I think it's fair to expect a setup to be done after purchase though it would be ideal if Thomann offered a choice of strings without extra charge (e.g. Helicore Hybrids or Pizzicato or Orchestras depending on customer preferences and which are all in the same price range).

My luthier so far has lowered the bridge, dressed the fingerboard and also filed the nut to get the strings closer to the fingerboard as well (the nut was way to high). I'm changing the endpin as well to carbon fibre just to try something different. Nothing wrong with the existing one quality wise, just a couple of comments though: the plug is protruding about 1cm off the body so not in all the way (replaced it with carbon fibre for lightness). Good strings cost £100+ and I replaced them with Thomastic Spirocores).

I was not 100% sure at first though the more I play it I appreciate it for being a very nicely made instrument, both to look at and to play. With the setup and Thomastic Spirocore (Weich) strings its starting to make a lovely sound with many nuances and nice overtones. It's still new so I'm expecting some of the tightness to give way to a more open sound in the coming months and years.

Overall I am very happy. Could I have bought something better for the money? Maybe, maybe not. (I was looking at Shens and Christophers though these are quite a bit more expensive. The Thomann 33 is also a very decent instrument and cheaper, though the 3W might have a slightly better build quality.) A satisfied customer!

Lovely piece of wood, metalwork could be better.

12.05.2014
I have owned my bass for about four years now. You can't review a double bass straight out of the box, they improve with age, you need to let it become the instrument it is going to be. It is like having a child, but with fewer nappies.

When the bass arrived, it was beautifully set up. Well, actually, it wasn't set up at all: it arrived in a cardboard box attached to a miniature pallet, very robust, the bridge was taped to the top of the instrument, but the position for the feet was marked in pencil. It was easy to set up, ready to play. Once it was set up, with the OEM strings the action was right for classical playing, there were no wolf tones, no dead spots, it played beautifully both arco and pizzicato. I have since replaced the strings with Evah Pirazzis. I would recommend that.

Downsides: the tailpiece wire broke within 24 hours of setting up the instrument. To be fair, Thomann sorted out a replacement very quickly, I cannot fault them at all. The endpin is atrocious. It is a very lightweight hollow tube, and it is not very long (I am about 2.00m / 6'8" tall - I need a long endpin). I replaced the endpin with a carbon fibre one I bought on eBay and the volume and bottom end of the instrument doubled at a stroke. I would recommend that too. Also, after four years the tuning machine heads are getting a bit corroded. They are next on the list for an upgrade.

Don't get me wrong, I love my bass. It has / had some shortcomings, which I have addressed. But then any instrument will. I would buy another one tomorrow if I had to. But I don't have to - I am very happy with the one I have.
