Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A beautiful bass at a beautiful price. "
Overall: I have been using a fender aerodyne jazz bass for a while and recently got involved in a ska project that, while it works for some of the more upbeat stuff, the j bass just didn't have the ability to tweak it's sound enough to suit all of my needs. This thing has a beautiful round, warm tone that fits seamlessly into the more trad/reggae heavy stuff. This thing is also light as a feather. The only issues i could see are 1) floating bridge. Out of the box it did take some setup to get the action right and I had to lower the pickups to keep the strings from making contact with the pickups. 2) the tailpiece has those metal attachments that run loose through a crossbar, so there is a buzzing you get, but it doesn't affect the sound when you have it plugged in. And 3) a minor cosmetic detail. I got it in cherry and the pickguard isn't black like it's shown in the picture, it's a white tortoise shell. Not a major issue, but definitely not what I was expecting.
Style of Music: Rock, ska, reggae.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Hofner HCT5007 Verythin Electric Bass"
Overall: Very nice instrument. Plays well, sounds good, and looks great. Good finish work. All I did was to change the strings to some nice flat-wounds and tweaked the truss-rod a bit and this bass plays and sound great. Nice for the fat warm thumping retro sound.
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Blues, and Surf.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
