Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Everything for the budding bassist - all in one box. The bass is a smaller scale, which makes it the ideal instrument on which to develop proper bass guitar skills. Especially so for youngsters or people with smaller hands who may not yet be able to cope with the larger finger stretches required on the daunting dimensions of a full size bass guitar.

The amplifier is capable of handling bass frequencies at a good volume, but also also has a headphone input for silent practice.

The box also contains an easy-to-use chromatic tuner and all other accessories needed to kick start your bass playing.

I brought this as I have just started to learn bass, this is half the price I expected to pay for a guitar and amp (this came with a case, leads, stand, amp, CD's and tuner)

I did find a few problems with it though on arrival (just me being unlucky)1 of the strings had snapped and the plug on the amp was bent beyond repair.

I have had no trouble getting it replaced and the new one works perfect.

The other guitar I purchased, same package but with an electric guitar, was fine.

Bought this for my son's 12th birthday. Not only does it come with all the basics its also quite a nice bass to play and sounds fine through the little practice amp supplied. I probably play it as much as the lad and have used it to record bass lines direct onto my pc's studio software. The action is fine and the tone far better than I expected. Admittedly I'm a six string player normally but used to sell guitars so have played many 'cheap' basses. This one stands up very well compared to the ones I remember. Arrived within the stated time and came with packaging intact and all parts present and correct.

Verified Purchase
I bought my 11 year old son one of these for Christmas. Neither of us can play the bass so we were not looking for anything too sophisticated. The package arrived quickly and everything was in the box and in good working order. Well amost, the volume control on the bass was loose, but all I had to do was take off the chrome knob and tighten a nut at the base of the spindle.

It has hardly left his side since he opened it. We are both very pleased with it. The instrument looks great. The amp is basic, but what else do you expect at this price, and needs to be turned up to get a half reasonable sound from it.

All in all this is great value formoney.

16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Howard Long on 6 July 2009
Arrived on time with Express Saturday delivery. On opening the large box, it was apparent that the guitar box inside had suffered due to other contents shaking about loosely in the outer box around it. I was missing a pick and the cable between the instrument and the amp. The amp showed no sign of life when powered up. Being an electonic engineer, I opened it up (eight screws) to find a failed fuse that I replaced with one I had in stock, and it was fixed within ten minutes.

Like the fuse, I had spare picks and a cable, but I would have been rather frustrated had I not been in this position.

The tuner provided is rather bargain basement.

The kit now works fine, and I consider it to be very good value despite the initial annoyances.

I was very pleased with this product. The price is brilliant for everything to get with it. It even arrived much earlier than stated, Amazon said it would take 1-3 months to get to me, I ordered it on the 7th Dec, it arrived on the 17th Dec. So much earlier than stated.

When I opened up the main box, I could see that the box the guitar was in had a rather large hole in it, although luckily the guitar was not damaged. The other bits were well packaged, although the pick and tuner looked as if they had just been thrown in the main box. This wasn't that bad.

The only bad thing about this is that my tuner was not the digital plug in one pictured in the stock photos, it's rather basic and crap for what I paid, even though the packaging states it is a 'professional' tuner. It doesn't even work properly! It doesn't pick up the E or A string and seems to want to tune the D and G strings to a high E, which is extremely annoying. Because of this, as I'm not that good at tuning guitars by ear, I have not been able to play my guitar as of yet.

My daughter bought this with her own money for her birthday. It is very good value for money compared with many more checked and the sound is really good. It arrived extremely quickly, and the only thing we need is a longer amp lead as its a little short but thats just as she likes to walk around with the guitar.

basically great service and a great deal

This was fantastic value for money. I would easily have paid an extra £100 for this. It was a present for my partners son for Christmas. He loves it and the extra's that come with this are fantastic. I would say the only downfall is the packaging. This was a bit damaged when delivered but we checked everything and it all was in great working order.
I would reccomend this to anyone.

very good buy, i would recommend it for anyone who wants to learn bass. Amp is louder than i thought, produces good quality sound. First item came to my house with a fault (one of the tuning bits was broken) and called for a replacement, which came very quickly, and they collect the faulty item for you. Very impressed with the service. ;-)
