    Acoustically they are not loud enough to play along with even a quiet acoustic guitar. Also no bottom end. They're meant to be played amplified. They sound pretty good through a good amp. Plenty of sustain and lots of midrange. They don't feed back even at high volume levels. Different strings can change the sound a lot. On mine I like flatwounds.

    All in all a pretty good bass and very nicely made.

    I agree with all the above. I'm happy with mine.
