Hi, I own a Hohner B2A headless bass. Unfortunately, the battery compartment shows some corrosion, also some parts of the plastic housing, which is extremely brittle, broke off. Is there any other source for parts known? Is there a replacement for the active pre-amp in the shape of a 9V battery that sits in the comartment alongside the battery? One more thing: The serial number of this bass is Can I get some more information on the bass, i.
Your serial number indicates that it was made in Great to hear that you already checked the C-Shop. All the parts that we can provide are listed there.
Maybe a specialized guitar shop or a second hand guitar shop can help? Thanks for your understanding. Hi Kristin, thanks a lot for the information anyway.
Very helpful service, and super fast, too. Is it right that the B2A generally is not an active bass, i. If you can get at leads that connect to battery is it pp3 9v a connector can be bought cheaply and replaced.

I made a plan for a different solution now. Will keep you posted if it works. If not: the bass can be used without the pre-amp as a standard passive instrument with two volume and one tone pot. Parts have broken off, the lid is lost. A replacement part could not be found.

Great little instrument brought back to life. I love playing it. The battery contact cable was the part i mentioned if running on nine volts i understand you mean the size of circuit amp.

Hohner B2 Headless Bass
In , New Yorker Ned Steinberger launched a revolution in bass guitar design when he unveiled what has since become dubbed By the time the s got under way, the all-synthetic Steinberger bass sharply divided opinion. It was light in weight, easy to play though our editor insists that everyone at the time grumbled that your hand always fell two frets higher than you thought it was! It was also, in its plastic incarnation, more or less indestructible. This review isn't about the Steinberger, but clearly the Hohner B2 that we are reviewing here gets its general idea from Ned Steinberger's original, so it would be impossible to review it without a nod to the originator of the headless concept.
