Crafter BA 500
Low-made in Korea.
Easel-folk kind.
Channel-a pitch of 32 'with 22 frets.
-Mahogany body.
-Rosewood fingerboard.
The all-black lacquer paint.

-The pre-amp settings:

-A mute button to mute the sound.
-A button battery check.
-A volume knob.
An equalizer-style horizontal bars, Bass, Middle, Treble, Pésence.


-The handle slides, but I'd rather it not be painted, matter of personal feeling.

-The weight is light enough, but the shape is by playing sitting, bass tends to slip backwards.

- Access to acute is easy at least until the 20 key, then you have to contort your fingers, especially on the mid rope, not necessarily for its stylish.

For sound, acoustic, strings are round net wrapped, thus you lose a lot in the medium, this is even more true with Mi rope rings with less sustain and power than the other, all accented a pitch of 32 '. But it is more precise ... That said a good research on a more versatile set of rope should settle the matter. We can reduce these defects by using the pre-amp, but without completely erase ... on this point I am a little disappointed with the sound.

I'll put some audio files to support my statements.


-In the sense that I was looking for a small acoustic bass, to avoid leaving the amp and my bass guitar when I'm at home in front of my computer, it suits me well.

-The type of sound is quite heavy, fat, lack of sustain, as mentioned above and especially medium!

-I bought it mainly to play without an amp, but I tried plugging it Montarbo B100 amp, I have not tried different setting, but it happens to have a proper sound with all the defects mentioned .


- I use it for one month
- I bought a buddy he had 5-6 years, so I have not compared to other models before buying.
- What I like the most is despite the impact on the sound, strings and sheathed flat net are very pleasant to the touch, it glides easily and strings age much slower.
-The price / quality level, given that I bought used € 150 and the average sale is € 300, instead I got a good deal.
-For use as I do, I would do this choice.
