The 30”-scale 4-string bass is downsized enough to be comfortable to play for children and women while still providing a good focused tone that will work in virtually any playing context. The simple volume and tone electronics layout with a soapbar pickup in the bridge position allows the player to focus on playing the music instead of being distracted by too many sound choices. While not common, the 30” short scale basses have been popular with even pro-level bass players since the 60’s due to their ease of playability as well as improved portability.
