Great sounding bass that can take a beating
azureharri 04.11.2020
Pros:
-Has survived 5 years of being thrown around, knocked over, carried all over the country and generally mistreated. Still plays exactly as well as it did when it came out of the box (which is to say: well).
-Sounds generally very good for such a cheap instrument.
-Eye-catching design.
-The included bow is of pretty good quality.
-Low action allows some pretty quick movement. Used it for some very fast syncopated mathcore stuff and had no problems.
Cons:
-The bridge buzzed a little out of the box. Some filing fixed this, although I later replaced it with an adjustable one.
-The strings are a little harsh, so I'd recommend shelling out for some decent ones as they last for years.
-The E string is quite quiet compared to the others, which has caused issues for me when recording it.

Required 20 minutes of love to shine.

After I received it, unboxed, it required some time to be spent to clean it from factory dust and some glue that was left. It's much better then expected, solid, sturdy, great sounding. The fretboard is ebony, which you wouldn't expect on entry level instrument. Price to quality ratio is very, very good. It's easy to play, good sounding, classy looking, inexpensive bass. I use mine to slap - just like the old style DJ Fontana or Willie Dixon did. The finish is pretty good (I've seen more expensive basses with worse paint job than that).

Great starter

This Bass is a great bass if you are just starting out on Double bass or making the leap from E-bass. I've upgraded the bridge, strings and bought a pick up and it's great now. I gig with it every weekend and it never lets me down. It's also survived a few bangs and knocks.

Very good doublebass!

It looks very good and sounds good too. No notches on the steeple, so it can during the game to move downward. You have to do it yourself, with a file.
