The Ohana Bass is a short-scale acoustic bass with phosphor bronze strings and on-board amplification that is ideal for recording and performing. The OBU-22 measures 36” long, weighs 3 lb. 8 oz. with a lower-bout width of 12-1/2”
Ohana Bass Design
The larger body chamber, along with its arched back design, makes it truly an acoustic bass instrument that can be heard without plug-in. The combination of a solid Spruce top and a laminated Mahogany back, along with a sonically designed arch back, results in an instrument with bright and warm tones that have volume and punch. When plugged in, the on-board Fishman Presys+ bass pre-amp and built-in tuner provide ample control for bass, mid, treble, and volume, as well as feedback and brilliance adjustment for tone-shaping and phase switching.
With properly positioned frets, a player can apply just enough pressure on the fret to create a note that is perfectly in tune, on a perfectly tuned and adjusted bass. The Ohana Bass also comes in a fretless, and fretless with lines versions, along with custom phosphor bronze strings and a premium Fishman Presys+ onboard equalizer. Unlike its fretless counter part, the fretted OBU-22 requires less precision on finger placing than on a fretless instrument, and enables a player to play very fast notes with more ease and tone clarity.
