1.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm....., 3 Jan 2014
Something perhaps worthy of note is the fact that the two most recent reviews of this package are the two who gave it bottom marks. I received this as a Christmas present (good ol' Santa...) as I'd been considering a bass for ages. (I normally play a Gibson 6-string which may be relevant). The first thing I noticed on starting to play it was the fact that the strings do indeed slap the frets. As mentioned elsewhere.

Probably great shoes. The only thing is - they didn't fit me. Yes, they were my size, (UK-9), but no, they didn't fit. They are a victim of the current fashion trend for 'stylish' mens shoes.

This naturally significantly reduces the space the third, fourth and fifth toes have to live in, but hey!, Form before Function. They may well be perfect for those with thinner than average feet, the rest of us should stock up on Toe-Foam or visit a Podiatrist.
