The ultimate pocket doubleBass.

Kata, 13.02.2019
I loved the design, and even if I could not try the feel or hear the sound of such a strange instrument before buying it, i just ordered without any hesitation. It's lovely. It's tiny and it sounds nice.

The rubber strings are awkward for sure, playing in tune is difficult, the sound is only similar to a real doublebass sound, but hey... you have a violin sized, zero weight bass instrument. It is awesome.

I use it in small gigs with a world music group and rehearsals mostly, people just love it's look, and sound. Sometimes even musicians wonder, wow that doubleBass (like) sound really comes from that tiny instrument?

And it does. I use the Trace Elliot Elf head with the 1x10 cab, and for a small gig it works like charm. One easy walk from the car to the area, quick setup and ready to gig. The sound is awesome, doubleBass-ish, and loud enough for 40-50ppl sized areas.

I changed the white strings to the red one, more accurate feel and more precise in tune, but it's still just a rubber thing.

Superb sound in small package

netcarlos, 13.01.2019
I was very nicely surprised by quality of this instrument. Although China made, it is well made with good craftsmanship and great finish. It even has reinforced neck!

It plays nicely and has surprisingly rich warm acoustic-like sound. It is not that loud to play along with say acoustic guitar, but playing along with piano works very well.

It is great that you can finally have so small instrument with real bass register next to you at home when you got some idea and want to play it or on a trip. That makes you play more!

Built-in tuner is great tool and comes really handy.

Haven't found any cons yet.
