OVERVIEW

Easy to hold and fun to play.

The MicroBass25, or M-Bass25, is a 25" short-scaled acoustic/electric bass guitar that utilizes a dedicated synthetic string and a piezo transducer pickup. The extended scale length greatly improves intonation over similar models and allows for an acoustic volume loud enough to enjoy without plugging into an amplifier. The sloped ergo-glide top makes this instrument extremely comfortable to hold.

The MicroBass features a built-in transducer pickup with a master volume control as well as independent bass and treble tone controls. There is also a built-in electronic tuner with mute function that will aid in quick and accurate pitch adjustments. When the tuner is engaged, the instrument output is muted. When a 1/4" instrument cable is inserted into the output jack, the tuner is automatically engaged and the instrument is muted. By pressing the tuner button, the tuner is disengaged and the bass output will be audible.

MicroBass models feature an active pickup, which means that a battery is required for the pickup to function. The battery and can be accessed in the built-in preamp on the upper bout of the instrument. The MicroBass uses a 9v battery, which can be accessed under the plastic cover on the backside of the instrument opposite the volume and tone controls. A battery is included with all new MicroBasses.

The MicroBass includes a 5-year warranty to the original owner covering manufacturing defects.
Includes a gig bag.

    Comments about Gold Tone 25" Scale Acoustic-Electric MicroBass:

    The Microbass has a very mellow sound. It's great unplugged for practice, but not very loud. Plugged in it has a great, non-metallic sound. It is about the size of a parlor guitar, and is easy to hold and play. Tuning it is a bit tricky, but it is worth the trouble.

    Comments about Gold Tone 25" Scale Acoustic-Electric MicroBass:

    This little bass is a joy to play though the strings take a little time to get used to. It sounds good unplugged and like a stand up when amplified. It's much lighter than my electric bass guitar and easier on the shoulder.
    It's louder than a U-Bass or the smaller M-Bass. Volume wise it works well with one or two guitars but gets lost in a room full of dreadnoughts. Unless you plug it in.

      Comments about Gold Tone 25" Scale Acoustic-Electric MicroBass:

      I keep my Fender BG32 at the office for practicing when time permits.
      I bought MicroBass looking for something that would have some punch unplugged that I could noodle around on at home. A practice bass. Portable and small enough I could practice without knocking over the lamp.
      This is working well.
      I've had it a couple weeks. The strings are reaching their stretch equilibrium. Meaning I don't have to tune every time I pick it up. First few days I had to tune each time.
      The sound is good.
      I find the short neck inspires me to play the fretboard differently. Not in a bad way. It has opened up new sounds and improv directions.
      All in all I would recommend the MicroBass as an add on guitar.
