Excellent 5 string acoustic bass.
It is louder than most other basses we've ever tried and is also really comfortable and easy to play. For some reason bronze strngs on this bass sound warmer than in most acoustics. Of course we can also install flats or black nylon strings if you prefer but the stock strings actually sound good.
There's a piezo element under the bridge as well as a hidden volume control in the soundhole. Good news also about the plugged in performance: it sounds big and warm, just like it should be. This bass outperforms many of its competitors in this department too.
The low B is surprisingly strng and clear. Of course unplugged that string is a bit weaker but plugged in it is just perfect.
To sum up, a top notch acoustic bass with a really nice price tag.
