Fantastic Bass for stage, not so for much for silent practice
RBass, 20.07.2020
The SLB 300 silent Bass has new electronics which better match a real double bass.. at least thats what the hype is saying. I bought one and this is what I found.

Pros. I had seen the few youtube clips with the SLB 300. I was really keen to get a better sounding Electric upright bass. I play rockabilly / Rocknroll and had been practicing with the SLB100 and The Stagg EDB over the last 15 years. Both these electric uprights sound Ok ish but nothing like a proper Upright bass. In the youtube clips everyone was saying how good the SLB 300 sounds. Well, I can confirm that the sound is really as good as they say. If you are looking for an electric upright, you must at least test a SLB 300. Although very expensive, they sound really great. Very like the real thing.
Cons. I have the SLB 100 for some years but was always disappointed with the sound. The SLB 100 was great for silent practice so that neighbours wouldn't be disturbed. The reason why the SLB 100 is so practical, you can plug headphones direct into the instrument. In the new SLB 300 you cant. This for me was not impossible to get around, but it means that I will always need extra things in order to practice with headphones. Its just disappointing.

Alternativ zum Kontrabass
Sven bass, 24.01.2021
Kontrabassist, E-Bassist.
Vorweg, suchte Alternative zum echten Kontrabass aus zwei Gründen.
1. Transport.
2. Klang beim Verstärken.

Zu 1.
So ganz leicht ist der Yamaha nicht. Ist auch klar, da das Hauptgewicht beim Hals liegt.
Wem schon mal beim richtigen Kontrabass der Hals abgeleimt ist, wird wissen, wie leicht der Korpus im Vergleich zum Hals ist. ;-)
Die Lösung, die Yamaha hier gefunden hat, ist praktikabel. Im gigbag durchaus machbar.

Zu 2.
Das ist erstaunlich!
Hier muss ich aber gleich beifügen, dass ich leider noch nicht auf der Bühne testen konnte.
Zu größeren Events fehlt leider aktuell die Möglichkeit.
Dennoch macht er klanglich im "Homeoffice" ;-) eine hervorragende Figur.
Im Proberaum mit Amp, so gut klingt mein echter Kontrabass mit Piezo nicht. Oha
Mit den Werksaiten (d'Addario) sogar ein wenig nach "Darm“.
Volle Punktzahl beim Bogen. So natürlich habe noch nicht mal eine Mikrophon Einstellung mit echtem KB gehört.
Das gilt auch für üben im Wohnzimmer akustisch.
Zwischen Fazit, super.

3. Handling
Nun, da gibt's Schwächen. Da ich groß bin, muss ich den Stachel sehr weit aus fahren.
Somit fehlt mir die Zentriertheit. Spürbar beim Bogen.
Der Bügel, der den körpernahen Korpus in der Leistengegend imitiert, ist mir persönlich beim stehenden Spielen zu glatt. Damit rutscht das Instrument vor allem bei arco aus der gewählten Position, was ich sehr nervig finde.

Den verstellbaren Steg find ich für Einsteiger gut. Ist mir allerdings zu wackelig und werde ihn wohl beim Fachmann durch einen stabilen Steg ersetzen lassen.

FAZIT. die beste Alternative zum Kontrabass, die ich kenne. Klanglich.
