guitch84's review - Thomann Kontrabass 111

Value For Money : Excellent
Contra-plated against key rosewood nb: as my good luthier is better than rosewood mauvaus bne, regarding the key).

I use it for quite six months, and frankly, for the price, do not DCON, a can do, really. Should not that Ouli cons of study, in a low-end maker, is a large minimum 1600 euros. for Students or those who want to get started without having forcment 2000 euros to invest, it's a great plan.

the particular feature I like most? The price is a study of playable against the third of the price of one in a Chinese maker!

the particular feature I like least: a rest against a 400 euros, it said:

- The bass (E string) are not top (a little weaklings, but basses that are three times that price also have this problem);

The must-rgler, (but for me, I had asked the types of Thomann me rgler the bridge with an action "jazz": 8mm above the key to the string of low E and 6 for the G string, and the bridge has arrived nickel is frankly enjoyable to play with good strings)

-And especially to change the strings, but with the nylon strings of light presto in toto, was the fact carrment, even if the coup was a little less power in its sound ...

-Must tame mcaniques, sometimes a little hard ... but you get done.

it seems that with these basses on the internet is the lottery, some are playable, others are shit ... so I'm well TFW tomb but mine is really playable (I play funk, much of walks fast, and I have small hands), and expands correctly (I put a stat on it Schertler B ,) it's really not bad for this price you can play the group PPRE.

nb: I confess I do not have to test the bow, I do not play in pizz. ds that I Reue, I mount the nylon strings (the bow unplayable) ... I do not know at all how it can sound the bow.

I tried against a study of carbon on which I play in my conservatory (4 times the price of the 111), well, honestly, playing comfort, I mounted mine prfre with nylon strings (a sound issue sends less volume, but we are not obliged to force a beef to enter its chorus)

the price quality ratio is really not dgueu, I think it's the least I could CHRE trouver.J did it two dozen concerts, jazz-funk trio piano bass drums, with a solo against all the pieces, and has ben doing it.

is what I would do this choice? with a budget rev limit (I did not put more than 500 euros when bought: yes no hsiter ... there's no cheaper (cons + strings) and is widely exploited ...
Now, my wallet is now provided more, so I'll go for something more expensive, but for those who want to do their Premire weapons and do not afford too, it's a great plan .

I put 8 of 10 for the ratio quality price, but we need a change prvoir strings really s'clater, and amplification for group play.
