When I bought this bass I had no idea what I was buying, I used to have a big and heavy Peavey bass. So since I am a girl and all I looked for some lighter bass. I chose the Hohner because it looks lovely and is very neat for a girl, light and easy to play on. I am thinking of maybe changing pickups to get a better sound but some how I still want to keep the original sound, even though I don't really like it. I'm getting a new one, but I'm not selling the Hohner. I think he will stick with me forever.....
Price: $799.00 GB pounds (new)
Where Obtained: A music store somewhere in London
It is a beautiful looking 4 string bass, maple and natural looking, neck through, 25 frets.
It has two Hohner select/EMG pickups and has active electronics. The controls are volume for each pickup, bass and trebble plus there is a switch.
The tuners are very good all gold covered.
I have used the Hohner for playing at church. It has been very usefull and a very good friend of mine. I know that this isn't really an excellent bass...but it does it's use.
It suits me very well because it's light and the neck is very easy to play on.
I use a Musicman as well, and if I compaire these two basses I have to say that the Musicman is a pretty Benz and the Hohner is a Scoda. But still thought it isn't a top bass, I like it!
I have been using Marshall, ESB and Peavey amps. It sounds best with the ESB. The sound isn't as good as I wish it were, but still, you can get some nice smooth, full and very cool sound.
But I would not buy this bass now, when I have learned much more about bassed.
It is in good form and can last well tuned for a long time.....
