The Little Thumper Nylon Bass is the latest invention by the makers of the original travel guitar. SoloEtte has been providing high quality travel guitars for 20 years. This featherweight is the answer to a long sought, shorty/sidekick for the bass player on the go. The Little Thumper is a nylon four-string, 27 inch scale, electric bass that weighs 3.5 pounds. The Little Thumper is now available to purchase factory direct from the company's website as well as through select SoloEtte Dealers. The company offers both a Fretted and Fretless Little Thumper for $925 plus shipping within the USA or internationally. The price includes an extra set of LaBella nylon strings and a soft carrying case.
The magic here is the symbiotic relationship of the big, octave lower, nylon classical guitar style strings in concert with the mysterious pickup. The SoloEtte pickup is the company's our own invention that has been used on thousands of guitars. This combination enables a well-muscled, sweet, deep warmth that growls and thumps. All this comes in a light weight, easy to carry, and virtually unbreakable format. The Little Thumper is instantly playable by seasoned 34 inch scale length devotees as well as guitar players.
The sound in headphones is not just a secondary feature for the Little Thumper. The superb stage voice of this performance instrument is almost eclipsed by the deep stereo sound in the headphones. A player will use their headphones the majority of the time for practice and composition while retaining the luxury of walking it right on stage for a performance. All of this and the added advantage of a disassembling frame that fits in a compact soft case that is widely accepted by airlines as carry-on luggage.
SoloEtte uses its SongBird body design to provide a solid, stable bass that is one solid piece of Hard Rock Maple. This design will allow stability during travel across climates. The frame is solid aluminum rod covered w/ black polyurethane tubing. The electronics use a 9 volt battery with an easy access battery door. There are two output jacks as well as volume and tone controls.
The Little Thumper Nylon Bass is currently available factory direct and at Play Away Guitars.
