Great value for beginners and experienced musicians

Jateca , 05.08.2017
As a long-time electric bass player, this was my first foray into Double Bass. Based on positive reviews for this bass I took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised at how good this is for the price.

I bought this to be a learning and gigging instrument and it is performing superbly on both counts. I have developed my technique and upgraded certain parts of the hardware as I've become more confident and able. I've played my share of shoddy beginner instruments and this certainly isn't one of those

The instrument arrived well packaged on a pallet with all its accessories. A word on them... the gig bag is very useful. It offers almost no protection but makes transporting this beast much easier and practical... many gigs, festivals and train rides later and I don't even have a scratch. The cleaning kit is fine. The bow is useless junk... the synthetic hair wouldn't take any rosin whatsoever. I bought a cheap wooden bow with real horse hair and that is much better.

I could find nothing wrong with the build quality. There are a few parts where the finish and carving is a little rough around the edges, but nothing that affects the playing experience. The bridge was well set up and easy to install, and the string as perfectly fine to begin with. The tuning machines and endpin were a little stiff, but nothing a bit of WD40 couldn't fix.

Sound wise the tone out of the box is good and surprisingly loud. My bandmates were enamoured straight away. It was full and deep, and the bowed sound growls. A seasoned classical bassist might be able to point out many flaws in it, but for a jobbing musician it is perfectly serviceable.

Since buying this bass I have upgraded it with an adjustable bridge, a set of Innovation Honeys and a Gage Realist pickup, which have all taken it to the next level and it is now my main gigging instrument. I'm getting no end of compliments from sound engineers and audience members and I couldn't be happier with it! If you're looking to take up upright bass then I don't think you could find a better place to start.

A Lovely"Upright"

20.01.2015
Am very pleased with this 3/4 Thomann 111E DB after owning a Thomann DB over 30years ago I wanted to get back into playing Double bass Both Arco & Pizzicto I Found Musikhaus Thomann a pleasure to Deal with Very efficient I got it set up for Jazz & classical playing "Flat"Nickel"Wound strings The Bridge setting Markings are on the Body between the "F"Sound holes The sound is Great! Perfect Low & High note Intonations Its up there with far more expensive Uprights..Its Only Achilles Heel i found was the "adjustable height Floor pin"I noticed it slipping down whilst playing, the"Wingspade adjusting screw is not up to the job of holding/securing the basses weight(It doesnt grip the pin properly under weight pressure) But I resolved this problem very easily I put a small clamp(jubilee clip) onto the pin under the adjuster & jobs sorted! The Bass itself is very well finished..Just one more tip! I suggest lightly scratching the surface of the "Rosin"cube with mild sand paper to get the rosin going for the bow as it takes a long time otherwise to"Rosinate the new Bow.
