This Sandberg California VT4 is an impressive bass. Classic design, color and beautiful Hardcore Aged finish complete with tortoise guard.
The 2 band Delano 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.
Pickups are also Delano and we love them. The Split pickup sounds just great in passive mode, just like a good old P Bass. The bridge unit adds definition and bite. Blend both and you'll get a slightly scooped type of sound.
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
