B-Compact Acoustic Bass
The B-Compact acoustic 4 string bass is offered with the B-C full-size body and a short bass scale. It sounds amazingly full and punchy and is loud enough to play along with an acoustic guitar. With an acoustic pick-up installed it will definitely keep up with any other high-end acoustic bass, but it’s a lot easier to get to your gig with, especially if you have to fly!
Basically we can also offer a 5-string bass, but I would recommend going for a longer scale in that case. This will affect again the portability though as the neck is setting the length for the bag in the end… In other words, the 4-string version works really nice, the 5 string would be a bit of a compromise but doable.
All B-C Basses are built to order only and are also available as fretless.
