What We Think

Versatility and playability are just about all that needs to be said about Sandberg basses and this one is no exception. Sitting down to play this TM4 you'll notice the neck is slim, fast, but substantial enough to still dig into. This pickup combination is full of round, punchy tones that will hold down the bottom end, while still producing tons of clarity. Not to mention, the humbucker in the bridge has a very conveniently located coil split switch for more traditional J-style tones on tap as well! Finished in this eye-catching Marley Blue high gloss, and weighing under 8 pounds, this bass is ready to work and cover all the basses.

About Manufacturer

Sandberg Guitars is a German-based company that was founded in 1986 by friends Holger Stonjek and Gerd Gorzelke. In the humble beginnings, Holger was training as a piano maker in Braunschweig, Germany (Wilhelm Schimmel Pianofortefabrik GmbH) and found his passion in building and repairing bass guitars at their small factory located in an old farm building near Wolfsburg — eventually naming the company after the street this factory was located, Am Sandberg. 

After many years of innovation and building custom instruments upon request, the company moved to a larger facility in Braunschweig, expanding their line from stunning 5/6-string exotic basses to a wider selection with a wider market appeal. It was in this time when they attracted the attention of legendary session bassist Ken Taylor, built a signature model for him, and gained significant international appeal for years to come. 

Since 1986, every Sandberg instrument has received individual care and attention; the hand-shaping of each neck, the precise fretwork (which also sees a PLEK!), hand contoured bodies, remarkable finish work, fine sanding, and unique aging processes have formed the company into a powerhouse among string players. 

Special features on select Sandberg instruments will include Vibration Treatment and Thermo Treatment (each designed to increase sustain and emphasize the instruments natural frequency range), and the new In-House Roasting process to maple.
