Tanglewood Evolution TAB-1 CE reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the December issue of the magazine features a review of the Evolution TAB-1 CE acoustic bass guitar from Tanglewood. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“Tanglewood instruments got an opinion of a good, yet still a budget proposition for beginners and intermediate players and it has to be admitted, that they stand up to the role and pay back with interest.”

“Employing the on-board preset EQ (Contour) you can get a kind of nasal tone, encouraging you to funky technical playing and soloing. On the other hand, there is still some rock “beef” present that sounds natural and organic. And you can feel the whole instrument resonate at the same time.”

“Tanglewood TAB-1 CE left a very good impression. Its sound – both acoustic and electric – meets all the basic requirements of studio and stage environments, especially when you spend some time with it and get to know its capabilities.”
