I played a rented Knilling (brand new) from a music store while my regular bass was in rehab at Betty Ford for about two months.
It wasn't a horrible bass "off the rack", but I would say of any "production" bass, take it to an experienced bass luthier and get it set up right, including adding the right strings for the kind of playing you'll do. That will cost you a few bucks, but it will make the bass much easier to play and better sounding. Had I been able to do that, I think I would have considered the Knilling okay for the price.
: I am thinking of buying a Knilling all solid carved wood 3/4 size bass. Its the Bucharest 1308TP model. It was made in Romania. Does anyone own one of these and are they any good.... I would only be paying around $1700.for it It has never been damaged and is 10 years old. I am playing a 1951 Kay C-1. It sounds good for a ply bass.(thump thump thump), but I want that nice tone you can only get from a solid carved bass. What do you think?????
