Bang for Buck you said?

Kristian J, 06.12.2018
This bass is ridiculously cheap. By cheap i mean price-wise. This bass doesn't cost a lot, but for your money you get a whole lot of bass (although they forgot to install frets).

People like lists, so here you go:

Pros:

...Affordable
Affordable!
AFFORDABLE!!!
A whole lot of instrument the price considered

Cons:

Comes with round-wounds (I don't want my fingerboard torn to shreds in the nearest future)
Sharp "fret"-ends. The wooden inserts are quite protruding and will tear your hand up if you slide around as if a giddy child who just got a fretless to play with.

This is my fourth bass, but first fretless. It's easy to play, it sounds all right, a great learning tool, and sufficient enough for me when i desire to record some fretless noodlery. For that application (seeing if a fretless is for you and learning) I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Jannis Vl., 08.01.2019
Pros: Great colours, great sound, good wood, great feel in the hands, easily playable, good electronics, looks sturdy, knobs really work and they do it well, great price, absolutely beautiful!
I would surely use it in recording, playing in the street, playing live, jamming... Currently, I mostly use it for learning and jamming.
Cons: The heaviest bass I have played on - Who cares?
If you're older than 16 y.o. you surely can handle it, male or female.
I personally, like its weight.

Packaging was perfect and delivery time went according to plan.

Sadly or not, Thomann becoming a monopoly in most musical instruments is unavoidable. I only hope every working person is well-paid, because I believe I paid a very reasonable price for the value of the product I now use.
And I will buy from Thomann again.
