Hoffmann v. Shen 1/8 Basses
A while ago I ranted about Shar’s Hoffmann bass and their awful customer service. I also praised the Shen line of basses. See that rant here. My school has a 1/8 size of each. I stand by that rant now more than ever. The Hoffmann fingerboard has warped unbelievably so. The Shen is a rock. We bought our Shen from Classic Contrabass and Michelle does her own bridges.
Anyway.. I took some snapshots today of each bass. Take a look.
The first six are the Hoffmann and the last six the Shen.
