    Hohner HP BassPublished on 12/21/11 at 00:00
    The Hohner HP Bass is essentially a copy of the popular Fender Precision Bass. I don’t know the exact years, but sometime in the 80’s Fender lost their patent for the P Bass and a slew of other companies started using the design. Of course when they got the patent back they sued everyone who stole the design, but many of these P Bass clones are still around under a variety of brands, including this one from Hohner. It’s got the same make up as a P Bass and has just a single pick up.



    UTILIZATION

    It’s super easy to play the Hohner HP Bass. It’s got the same fluid and tight feel that you get with a nice Fender P Bass. It’s a hard feeling to describe but those who have played …

    UTILIZATION

    It’s super easy to play the Hohner HP Bass. It’s got the same fluid and tight feel that you get with a nice Fender P Bass. It’s a hard feeling to describe but those who have played any decent P Bass understand what I’m talking about. I think it has to do with it’s round neck that makes it so easy to slither up and down the neck. For pick up control there is just a knob for volume and another one for tone so there should be no issues there.



    SOUNDS

    The sound of the Hohner HP Bass is absolutely reminiscent of that classic P Bass sound as it’s punchy and round. It has a very specific sound and even though this isn’t a Fender it’s definitely true to the P Bass tone. There isn’t much more to say about this as those who know what a P Bass sounds like will be happy to hear that this is the real deal.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Although somewhat rare, the Hohner HP Bass is an awesome way to get a true P Bass copy without having a spend a bunch of money. The one that I’ve used was purchased for a very small amount of money. I’m not sure if you need to get lucky for this to happen but it seems like this is a great deal if you can find one. After playing one of these I’m looking into getting one for myself for sure…

    Hohner HP BassPublished on 07/23/08 at 02:13
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Fender Precision Bass imitation, 4 strings (left-handed model in my case)
    Setup microphone: a PB in the heats and a JB in bridge
    Settings: a micro volume, a general tone
    Channel and maple fingerboard

    I put 9 considering the price range of this instrument

    UTILIZATION

    The jouablilité is impeccable in regard to race, we can find its bearings. In terms of setting each button filled his role well, no worries.

    Only downside: I think the bass is heavy enough

    SOUNDS

    The micro config allows you to play a few styles. The tone is effective. For an instrument of this range the sound is really not disgusting at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At the time of writing this opinion, this bass is no longer in the new one (I think) so you can find it certainly occasion.

    If you are new to the bass is the instrument for you. At least as well as entry-level home Squier, Cort, Ibanez, and others ...

    For the more experienced bass players, I think you will be more limited and you want to quickly move up the range. However, it's still a nice base for biloute a little (or other transformation fretless)

    In short, a cheap instrument, good quality and fits perfectly with what is asked in view of its price ...
