TravelBass due its extreme portability to its cutted fingerboard that could be joined and divided easily and quickly, to be stored in less space. The two parts are are joined thanks to rigid core in the neck, made up of a T-bar specifically designed and shaped to slides into a dovetail slot on the end part of the fingerboard.
Together with the slolts carved on the body to house precisely the bridge feet
everytime, we invented the SafeBridge Tool: an extremely useful tool that keep
the bridge in the right position, perpendicular to the body, during the tuning.
When you tune your upright bass by turning the pegs, you basically are pulling the strings backwards while them are pushing down over the bridge: sliding on the bridge top, strings drag backwards the bridge itself moving it or, worst, bending it back, threatening to break it.
SafeBridge Tool is also available for your standard acoustic double bass.
In addition to the wheels on the bridge feet, TravelBass bass provide an additional adjustment system to get your favourite set up.
Two screws placed over the neck tail housing can be turned up or down, modifying the neck supporting area.
By lowering the screws equally, the neck tilt towards the front, while by raising them up, the neck tilt backwards.
Turning the screws unequally, you can get the neck slightly tilted to the left or to the right.
TravelBass is provided with two foldable wooden shoulders that exactly reproduce the double bass silhouette to give to musicians the same tactile references and the same feedbacks of a traditional double bass.
