Mouse 30

Many studio pros know the secret of how unique short scale basses sound. The lower string tension provided by the short scale has several benefits - easy playabilty, sweet upper register tones and fat blooming low end, not to mention the added nuance that comes naturally when playing this type of bass. Unlike most short scale basses available, The Mouse 30 bass is hand crafted to the highest professional quality. And though it shares the same high quality materials as the MB-2 bass, you'll find the Mouse 30 definitely has a personality all its own.

Mouse 30f

The Mouse 30 is also available as a fretted model. The Mouse 30f features tiny mandolin sized frets and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Indian Rosewood, while certainly a hard wood, is less heavy and dense than the Ebony and Goncalo Alves used on fretless models. This “softer” wood helps to offset the addition of subtle brightness added by frets, and creates a beauiful full yet clear tone. The bridge is also made of the same material, and can be adjusted for intonation. The small frets make for a very comfortable feel, improve intonation due to their low profile, and will last practically forever as the nylon wrapped 760n strings cause very little wear.
