Hofner Model 182 Professional Series Bass

Sound Quality

Basically Sounds a Lot like a Beatle Bass.....Warm and Thumpy. I had a Look under the Pickguard and there is a Lot of Cavity Routed Out, Hence the Partial Beatle Bass Sound. Rich, Full, Warm Sound........Very Hot Blade Pickups, Lots of Power ! Still has the Original Hofner / Pyramid Flatwounds Strung on the Bass.


Already have used it Live. Replaced Buttons with Locks. Have used it Without Backup Live.

General Comments

Playing just about 40 Years.


Also Own a 1961 Hofner 182/E1 Single-Pickup Bass and a Galveston Beatle Bass Copy.
