This Sandberg California TT4 is an impressive bass. Classic design, color and beautiful Soft Aged finish complete with MOP block inlays and tortoise guard, J/J pickup arrangement, etc. You get a perfect classic tone in passive mode thanks to the great Delano pickups as well as a powerful modern J sound in active mode.
The 2 band EQ is great for adding punch and definition and the good news is that in Passive mode the Treble pot acts like a Passive Tone control. We love that.
This is actually one of the few basses that actually sounds vintage in passive mode and modern/punchy but still quite 70's in active mode. Test it and you'll be hooked.
To sum up: a bass with THE looks, THE sound and THE performance. Made in Germany with a susprisingly low price tag
