An affordable starting point
The double bass is not only the largest of the bowed string instruments, it is also by far the most versatile. Classical, of course, but also Jazz, Rock & Roll, Rockabilly, Folk, and even Hip-Hop - a double bass cuts a fine figure and sounds great no matter what the occasion. No wonder that now and then you can see an electric bassist being seduced by the charm of a double bass. If only the price wasn't so dizzyingly high! With the Thomann 111SN 3/4 Double Bass, entry into the world of double basses is definitely budget-friendly. It offers everything a double bass has to provide at a high level - including an ebony fingerboard, a gig bag, a bow, and an individual setup in our stringed instrument workshop.
The Thomann 111SN 3/4 Double Bass belongs to the popular 3/4-sized bass family, a size that is particularly popular in smaller ensembles as well as in Jazz, Folk, and related styles. The bass features a laminated basswood body and maple neck, and is finished in a pleasing brown colour. The fingerboard - remaining faithful to its status - is made of ebony, and the Artino strings that come as standard can be tuned accurately using the four individual machine heads. Last but not least, the bass also comes with a stable, adjustable spike to allow the player to find the optimum playing position.
For many, maybe even for most buyers, the Thomann 111SN 3/4 Double Bass will be the first double bass ever, because its price is truly unbeatable - which makes it all the more important for a correct setup to be included in order to ensure a successful start on the instrument. However, it should be kept in mind that the day will come when a robust second or third bass is needed. Even advanced players up to the professional league will need a backup instrument that won't mind too much when things get a little rougher or damper on stage or during a gig in the street. What is more, a laminated wood bass is significantly less prone to feedback when amplified with a pickup.

Come rain or shine...
A few years of electric bass often lead to players wanting to go back to the roots, which is how many electric bass players end up getting their first double bass – an understandable step since both types of bass are tuned the same way. And of course, that second bass shouldn't be too expensive - after all, enough money has probably already gone into the player's electric equipment. Anyone who uses the Thomann 111SN 3/4 Double Bass on stage in combination with a pickup will be amazed at how little it tends to feed back - a clear advantage of its laminated construction. Another advantage is that it is largely immune to changing humidity levels. As long as it doesn't get thrown into the water, it can't come to much harm, no matter whether it is used for street music or around the campfire. That's exactly why even seasoned professionals tend to use this type of bass.
