    Obtain The Tone That Made Popular Music In The 1960s - The Hofner CT Violin Bass In Sunburst

    The sound of a violin bass differs significantly from any other bass. When played with flatwound strings, it produces a deep and penetrating thump, not unlike a double bass. So you can perfectly reproduce the sound of the 60s pop songs or - with a little distortion - push a modern rock band. Many studios like to use it today for the fat bass lines of dance mixes. Also in reggae it delivers a convincing deep driving bass sound. Although the 500/1 is one of the most delicate basses on the market, it produces an incredibly massive sound and is remarkably versatile. 

    The contemporary version of the violin bass is one of Hofner's bestseller. The sustain block inside the body allows for modern, low-reaching bass sounds, while preserving the basic character of the Hofner bass sound. Comes equipped with original Hofner 'Staple' pickup.
