OVERVIEW

Reflecting a classic Ibanez body style, the Talman TMB30 sports a 30" short scale, cool retro look and delivers a sound that inspires.

While Talman basses normally have the more common 34” “long-scale” neck, the TMB30 offers a “short-scale” 30” neck. The shorter neck is often preferred by players of smaller stature who find a long-scale instrument to be unwieldy. It is also a favorite of guitarists who double on bass— the shorter scale having a feel closer to that of an electric guitar.

The TMB30 features include a Mahogany body for a warm, punchy tone, a Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard, a Standard bridge, and a black pickguard to complete the classic vibe. Electronics consist of an Ibanez Dynamix P neck pickup and a Dynamix J bridge pickup for that rich, vintage sound.

Comments about Ibanez TMB30 Electric Bass:

Use this at practice and playing out on gigs. Love the 30 inch neck. Makes riffs and runs just effortless. Also have an Ibanez Artcore semi hollow bass with 30 inch neck but the TMB 30 is a harder rocker which is more where my band leans.

    Comments about Ibanez TMB30 Electric Bass:

    I needed a bass guitar for recording music. I'm not a bassist by any stretch of the imagination, but a guitarist rather. But this bass has been great so far. It shipped and arrived quickly, and after unboxing and tuning it up it was ready to go from the start. It came set up very well, I didn't have to make any adjustments to the action or the intonation. And it's very easy to play, which is a plus if you're like me and have rather small hands. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this bass, especially if you're just starting out.

      Comments about Ibanez TMB30 Electric Bass:

      Overall, the TMB30 looks and plays really good considering it's just an inexpensive, entry-level, Indonesian made model. As a guitarist needing a bass for my jam room, I'm very pleased with mine.
