Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (96 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awsome bass,great depth and clarity!"
Sound: The Hofner Icon has amazing depth and clarity.After a set up, It's easy to play.It has good sustain.It sounds exacly like Paul's bass.I would not hesitate to play it live or record with it.I've played it thru a Carvin 1000 watt head at 2 ohms per side using 4 cabs at 2-18",1-15",and 2-12" and it sounds awsome! It also sounds great thru my small practice system. The bridge isn't adjustment friendly,but you can get it close and it sounds fine. I plan to install a Hofner bridge. The stock strings sound great, but I plan to buy La Bella strings. It is an amazing bass,and I would buy another. Feature: The Hofner Icon comes with an allen wrench for adjusting the truss rod. The neck is thin and easy to play and I have big hands. It's light and comfortable.It has a great deep and clear acoustical sound.The finish is glossy and the color is a brown/rustyelloworange.It looks great. Ease of Use: The Hofner Icon is very cmfortable and easy to play Quality: The Hofner Icons being made right now have improved in quality. The finish is great looking, the hardware is snug,no rattles. I belive the Icon is road worthy and will last. Value: The hofner Icon is well worth your money. I would buy another one. The Wow Factor: Everything about the Hofner Icon is pleasing. It's very nice to look at. I spent about an hour just looking at it.It's agreat addition to my musical tools. Overall: I plan to keep my Hofner Icon the rest of mt life,and at some point I might buy the Contemporary model.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Real or copy, you decide."
Sound: The sound of the Hofner is very full and throaty,a great hollowbody sound. I play it through a 30w amp and it sounds terrific. Very warm and Beatley. The bass also has great natural sustain. Play with a pick or without you won't be dissapointed. Feature: The bass came with a wrench and a cord but no paperwork about the guitar at all. Ease of Use: the bass is comfortable to play and the controls take a minute to get used to, but fairly easy. Quality: I was very pleased when I unwrapped it and found such a well made quality bass. The finish was beautiful, above expectations. The nut backed off on the jack but an easy repair. Value: The price of the bass was comparable to others, but I felt it was a better product for the money. The Wow Factor: Anybody who knows of Paul McCartney will recognize this bass right away and find it very appealing to the eye. Overall: I plan on keeping this bass in my collection for a long time, it's a staple for Beatle music.
Style of Music: Pop, blues, rock

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.
