Hi all.
One year I was looking for this low opportunity. Having briefly had 5 strings and amazed by its beauty and quality, I searched endlessly until the site to see in a small Irish ads via Google ... and fortunately, the seller m 'trusted ...
In a very acceptable cosmetic condition, pretty close to the new ... I immediately entrusted to my luthier after all disassembled for inspection.
A wire was désoudé .. making virtually ineffective tone, and with a shy volume.

However, back .... and for 20 euros .. lol satisfaction is total.

To start, cutting this bass is exceptional.
Is curved on the table.
It is not very heavy in relation to its size as it is quite impressive.

Hi all.
One year I was looking for this low opportunity. Having briefly had 5 strings and amazed by its beauty and quality, I searched endlessly until the site to see in a small Irish ads via Google ... and fortunately, the seller m 'trusted ...
In a very acceptable cosmetic condition, pretty close to the new ... I immediately entrusted to my luthier after all disassembled for inspection.
A wire was désoudé .. making virtually ineffective tone, and with a shy volume.

However, back .... and for 20 euros .. lol satisfaction is total.

To start, cutting this bass is exceptional.
Is curved on the table.
It is not very heavy in relation to its size as it is quite impressive.
The woods are all quality.
The bridge in two parts is very effective.
Head hints wood grain under the varnish, and the slight sparkle of the table is beautiful under the lights ...
The tuners are very reliable. These are not the oil baths, since I have also removed the .. I was surprised, but they do the job very well, since the bass is never out of tune!
The pickups are very well made, solid enough, and very heavy.
The knobs are formidable quality in my luthier.
So there is no a priori reason to distrust the value ...
I find the build quality further appointment with my Fender US ... (JB, PB and Jaguar)
It is for Chapter manufacturing.

Now connected, one might be disappointed, certainly not ben.
PB, Push mode, the sound is round at will despite the small noticeable shine new ropes.
The notes are very precise.
In JB mode, pull mode, the sound is brighter ... and highlights the lapping which is rather easy on this bass, which surprised me ...
So we are not at all in the Fender sound is more guts ... more goes into it ...
C'set an alternative to endless Fender, who wants the Rock with a look and sound to it ...


I had read that the push pull PBass / JBass was ineffective ...
Again, this is bullshit ... It is effective, but the guys before posting opinions on the stuff, you care about your amplification, because when you do not have a good amp .. . we do not perceive the actual sound of his bass ...


In summary, this bass is REAL-MENT a very good bass, but it requires sending .. that's the Rock ... Besides Duesenberg very well defined its range since I've rotes:
The Violin bass for sweet melodies.
The Starplayer Bass, goes everywhere, very soft to play .. really versatile, and can send the wood above a pick with the neck pickup ...
And so the D-Bass, scheduled for rock consigning, finger and a pick .. two, no problem ....
I use it for cover of Pop and Rock, frankly it happens everywhere, with preference for well-paced songs ...

Anyway, I have a clear preference for Duesenberg stuff ... (I'm Six) ... whatever the instrument is necessarily quality. The value price is QUITE the appointment since playing in the big leagues in terms of manufacturing quality. For sound is necessarily a matter of taste, but one thing is for sure, nothing is approximate with Duesenberg! I am conquered? and even to the guitar pedals ...

These are the kitties, if you could enlighten you in your quest for the Holy Grail Bassistique (or guitar)

The Violin D-Bass:

The violin is not bad. The handle is quite enjoyable and cir, navigating it quite easily. The button is rather Smouth, freight height relatively little lev. We do a screwed sleeve that is adjusted. The handle is flexible, you can have fun doing coma. But I venture myself not too too much when even the handle does possde no reinforcements !! The mcaniques and cls are prcises and original. Ct easel is too lightweight ... Indeed it does not stick fully and perfectly the table ... We observe one day ... It's a shame for an instrument that price. So I think we lose a little bit of sustain. Ct pulling strings I do not think this bass is made to accommodate many more than 100-45. The painting is done well, the blue Duesenberg Introduced in brochures and on the net is well respected. The originality of the color and the shape of the bass are clearly his strong point !!

The Electronic D-Bass:

The electronics is quite inefficient. The knob that serves Tone is not very progressive, it's almost all or nothing. Then the passage of P-Bass J-Bass mode gives the impression of a second false "Tone" limit a pseudo "bright". I do not know how you explained this, but do not imagine that you have a sound Accuracy and sound Jazz or a mix of the two as explained in catalogs, it is not for me that a commercial argument is vague kind arflichi to get a super low that it is too much, you have two in one. Although the series passage is understandable In parallel with the split. By pushing against the pots white plate everything because dfonce is not deep enough ... The installs microphones on the bass are not very efficient uptake MI is not famous. I modified micro heights just to see if it changed something ... Unfortunately not ...

USE

What happens when we play on the D-bass:

The bass is well balanced. The access to acute is correct. When playing seated without the bass tend strap slip out of the bass horn. So prvoir to play with a sitting even strap. Standing it holds in place. As above the handle screaming is quite pleasant. The string action can be quite low rgle. A vacuum bass vibrate properly, the rumbling inside.

SONORITS

Law rglage (12h) or neutral:
On a monitor speaker on POD: Very honestly I would say that this is not convincing.
On a Vox T-15: It's nice but nothing more.
On a Ampeg SVT2 PRO: Well it's not either revolution in sound.

The D-bass out of its micro Toaster sound toast !! It not grow !! And that quite a few character !!

Redoing my tests but this time making rglages, so the sound pleases me. I russis get something nice. But the lowest frequencies are a bit confusing.

NOTICE GLOBAL

For my part I find the quality report is not there. I play in a band where there adj two Duesenberg guitars, 49 and Outlaw, well see. The quality is the appointment with the concerned, besides the guitars are sold with holsters that is not the case for bass. Low in Duesenberg really the poor relations of the brand. This is unfortunate and regrettable !!!
This is a bass that is pleasant by its look, a color, and its handle. But I think it is much better to make purchases in this price range !!

So that everyone can do what an idea here are some pictures:
