'Oi 0B 5 String Compact Acoustic Bass
A compact 5 string acoustic bass with a full sound? Just about impossible you say?
Almost, but here it is...
The 'Oi 0 bass will blow you way acoustically. With the 5th high C string it gets well into the range of the acoustic guitar and human voice so it's easier to pick out tunes. Plugged in with a K&K Bass4 pickup, the sound is full and rich all the way to the bottom. At only a 24" scale, 13" width and a mere 4#, it's easy to carry and play as an unplugged or plugged travel bass. The 0B5 with 5 strings ranging from .036 to .11 has a string spacing closer to a guitar.
'Oi Basses are built standard with a Sitka Spruce top and Myrtle body for strong but warm fundamentals with pure tones. Contact me for alternate wood combinations, including the all walnut "black beauty".
