Mr Robert Barton16th Dec 2023

Genuine bass sound and feel. Lovely finish and good looks. Needed to lower the action. Getting use to smaller fret spacing after playing a full size bass. The nut gap may be grabbing the strings as I'm tuning. The strings feel a bit rough on my fingers but what can I expect in this price range. Overall, I love it.

Mr Greg M Lisk3rd Nov 2023

This summer a motorcycle crash tore my left shoulder preventing me from reaching above the 5th fret. I thought my Bass playing days were over untill I discovered the Blackstar Carry-on. I love this bass, it feels and sounds great and is certainly up to gigging until I can have my shoulder surgically repaired and quite possibly long after as I do not have the long fingers that seem a prerequisit for playing bass. I love being able to span 4 frets like those freaks on youtube.

For the price the build quality is excellent. I had to adjust the pickup height to balance the sound. Very happy with set up and overall finish. Punches above its price. I play in ukulele groups where a normal size bass would look out of place.
