Product Description

Full Description

Expertly crafted

A sparkling spruce top. You can't get a more exquisitely articulate tonewood. It releases pure excellence in the form of crisp clarity and an astoundingly broad dynamic range - the perfect combination for an unforgettable gig. And thanks to its balanced sonic nature, it has heaps of versatility to accommodate a range of playing styles. You'll never be limited; explore new genres or try out new techniques and get ready for your best sound yet.


The flamed maple back and sides then ensure you have a sound that is tight and focused. Even when you're playing with incredible dynamics, you can be sure to have glistening clarity on your side. Every note will blaze through the mix. And going one step further, the HCT 5001 Violin Bass includes a centre block which will enhance your sound with magical levels of sustain and resonance.

Smooth playability

A sumptuous rosewood fretboard allows for a divine playing experience. And thanks to the short scale of 30", you can fret with ease and still deliver excellent sound. Let your fingers slide over the silky-smooth 22 frets at rocket speed, such an exquisitely crafted fretboard and neck lend themselves to intricate fretting techniques. Rosewood evens out any harsh frequencies, giving you a wonderfully balanced tone, whilst the maple and beech neck provide tremendous strength and durability.

Back to the '60s

They're a Hofner staple, so you know you can rely on them. Hofner Staple Nickel pickups are loaded at the neck and bridge for a '60s-inspired sound. Prepare for a massive, classic, and beautifully vintage tone. And thanks to the famous Hofner control panel, which includes EQ controls and a volume dial for each pickup, you can be sure to be instantly recognisable. Sculpt your sound with precision and adjust it quickly and easily without ever disrupting your performance. You'll have a premium bass tone at an affordable price.
