So I got my Aria SWB lite oak (direct from Thoman) very well packed, nickel.

First grip, already is a real tune. Not 1 / 2 or 3 / 4.
It seems very solid. Very reliable. More positive first impression.
The classic mechanical and tuning there is no play, no movement of the screw. Impeccable.
In my case (1m72), the pic is ok, and I found it solid. I even tried to rely on it to bend, and well, it's not much curve.

Sensation play:

Very pleasantly surprised. The sensation is really close to the bass. To play, you must get into it, it's really interesting. And it's a pleasure to play at 0:30 in five returning much in the instrument without disturbing the five floors below.

100% agree with the previous opinion, the absence of body is obvious and clear it sounds piezo.
But to be honest, I tried the NS and it sounded fretless Steinberger. Here, with the SWB, we are in the double bass, electric of course, no doubt, but it sounds upright anyway.


I wanted to go play an instrument without restrictions with the airlines and other travel, and I found my happiness. To move and go to concerts, the contract is completed. After that, I do not think I should be a record with. But to live, what happiness.

Finally, I will give this phrase the previous opinion that sums up the instrument:
"We are far above the competition, and much closer to the feel of a game with a bass instrument so Steinberger NS (good in itself, but nothing to do with a CB)"
