Tanglewood TW155 A/Bass
- Solid Spruce selected
- Mahogany back and sides
- One piece mahogany neck, 20 frets.
- Marks abalone fingerboard
- Grover
- Satin finish
- Equipped with a B-Band EQ A3TY (integrated tuner), tuning the bass, mid, treble and presence.

All assembled in China (for that price, do not dream!)

The build quality is quite good, the finishes are more than adequate. More for the quality of the wood is not really gross. I put 7/10 because it's still made in China.


The handle is really excellent, everything on its bearings. A slight downside regarding access the last two frets that require a slight twist of the hand, but it's still playable.

The interface is excellent, the body may seem imposing at first, but remains comfortable during the game


Its main strength lies in its powerful sound, unlike many of the same low price where one is obliged to attack as a porcasse plectrum to be heard, this bass sounds live, either fingers or plectrum.
In acoustics, the sound is very clear, very defined highs, they do not drown in a sea of ​​low frequencies. Serious sound great, this is due to the size of the soundboard. Level mediums that a little fishing, bass frequencies are too top for my taste.
Sound power level can easily play with two acoustic guitars side and still be heard.

As soon as one branch, it sounds too. Be careful to lower the bass, it vibrates very fast and very loud! The electronics is friendly and does a good job. But I much prefer the acoustic sound.


I use it for 4 years now, and I'm still satisfied.

I tried other low almost the same price, it remains well above the other!

What I like most: The look, sound serious very round and well defined.
What I like least: Not much can be its lack of mediums, but it remains a personal taste.

With hindsight I would do this choice without hesitation. Among all of its low price it is the best, almost no other sound, and sends this one!

Tanglewood TW155 A/Bass
Same information that vsoleil
Elixir strings are round = good


Channel pleasant
The head is not heavy unlike the Fender Jazz bass head which tends to tilt to the left in a sitting position
General impression of sweetness of sound, heat,
Yet powerful


Very good acoustics for jazz to country, bluegrass, etc.
The volume of the box and the quality of wood (solid) are found completely
The mechanics are still soft and reliable
- Try other strings, and even La Bella black nylon, but the seller is not hot
Council to play bass way, 2 fingers closed
- Project to defretter to get even closer to the bass. But apparently disproportionate cost at cost (at least 50% of the red instrument) with an uncertainty on the final result ...
Suggestions audio fanzine welcome ...


Finally seldom used because I play several other instruments (guitar, mandolin ....)
But each return to this bass is a pleasure whenever found
No experience scene, I bought a small audience use, walking, friends circle ..
But with the preamp and microphone in front of where (secure my sm57) why not the scene?

Tanglewood TW155 A/Bass
Made in China

- Solid Spruce selected
- Mahogany back and sides
- Solid one piece Neck
- INLAYS in abalone
- Grover
- Satin finish

- Equipped with a B-Band EQ A3TY (tuner)


Used the time for a weekend for the holidays ... my first impression was very good.
She is beautiful, well finished ... the handle is very nice, not too fine, not too thick ... it is right now its bearings.

the ergonomics are very good, well balanced on the thigh to play sitting ... the body is massive but it's a sound ... and this improves the rendering of sound.


I really liked the sound ...
climbing with ropes nets semi flat (brand unknown) I liked the sound too serious but still very accurate. the size of the box has a lot to its shape Jumbo smassive rained most of the acoustic electric bass is a real plus.
You know when you started playing, you know when you t'arettes.

The music style is undefined, but I play pop rock, electro, buddy reggae and jazz ... and a bit of Soul ...

we found it both very well.

Connected not played ... I guess the 3-band equalizer must do its taf.
using the tuner to be sure we are well-tuned ...


Very good impression for this model are all very accessible.

Its big (beautiful) ass gives her a really nice, comfort is very good, and the bass is well finished ... that demand bassist?
the sound is really very very very nice.

I already have a low electro-acoustic in the same price ... it (the Tanglewood) is (a point of view of sound) much better.

I am very objective, I did not intend to buy it as a test store, the bass came to me naturally.

If you are looking for an acoustic electric bass, try it, well worth the detour!
