It's the attack of the killer-looking, sweet-sounding 4-string bass!
The Traben Array Attack 4 is remarkably affordable and it sounds great too. With its royal paulownia wood body and gorgeous burled maple top, this lightweight yet sturdy 4-stringer is a sight to behold. Adding to its aesthetic charm is a large, chrome Traben Tribal Flame bridge and chrome hardware. The pinched-in curves of the body, the flame bridge, the angled-back single-coil pickup and Rockfield humbucker with active preamp deliver all the growl you lust after. The fretboard inlays and the accentuated points of the headstock give this bass a unique and very sleek look.

First off, this was my first "High End" bass, and considering I don't have much to compare it to with regard to how is stands up against other more expensive basses, I can tell you what I see from a non-biased point of view!First off, it's super lightweight without sacrificing comfort! Even my fellow musicians who have played it, this was always the first comment made "man it's light!". The next thing is it's sustain! Between the large bridge (the tribal design is actually the base for the bridge) that Traben is known for, you can say goodbye to having to mash the hell out of the stings through a note to get it to last. Between the bridge and the active pickups, you play it and forget it. Nothing sounds worse than your note tone dropping off and fading during rests or open measures, you don't have to worry about that on this bass!The looks are mean and in your face, the finish is beautiful (although more susceptible to scratches considering it's not a coated finish (be careful with the belt buckles and the pics!)The pick-ups are amazing! And the fade between the two is HUGE, not to mention the on-board EQ with makes on the fly adjustments a breeze mid-song. I would avoid depending on the EQ on the bass as your primary EQ though. Neutralize it and you your head/pedal EQ instead, you don't want to take away from the digital controls of the head or pedals by "dulling" the output of the pickups.There were only two negatives to the bass overall. One I know most basses require set-up after purchase, but Traben was known for being almost perfect out of the box. Now I picked mine up from a small shop, the owner didn't even know what he had... I walked in with a custom EP Les Paul, traded it in and 89 bucks and walked out with this beast. So I can't be two upset that I had to set it up after I got it.The other issue I've had is the receptacle for your cable started to get a little loose pretty fast. However, I use a wireless bug from Samson which has a little more weight than a cable does since it hangs from the port. I've had to re-bend the contacts on the receptacle a few times to maintain contact. But again this will prob only be a concern is your using something similar. Cords will probably be of no concern here.There was also a concern about the strap studs considering the angles that they are mounted. I had one close call and immediately switched to longer screw, locking strap studs for 20 bucks, no more slipping, but that's a pretty standard upgrade regardless of the bass.Again, this bass is INSANE! Not only am I a fan of this particular bass, but I'm now a huge supporter of Traben in general and my new 5-sting purchase will also be a Traben!
When I was out shopping for this bass, I couldn't decide whether to get this or a Thunderbird.. They both are good basses, but I think I made the right choice on my purchase...
My younger brother has a Traben Pheonix 4 and I was pleased on the way it sounded and played, so I just HAD to have my own Traben..
If you have the money in your budget, I suggest this bass. Good deep low-end sound to a nice bright clean sound..
I just got mine today in black burl. It looks way better in person. The action is orgasmic, and I barely have to press when I play it. The toe varieties range from grindcore metal to funk, and I haven't even experimented that much yet. Overall, this bass is a must for any musician.
this s the first guitar i have ever played, and as far as im concerned it will be the only guitar i will play. when i picked it up i the store and plugged it in to take it for a "test drive". i didnt know what i was doing and it still sounded good. if u wanna play bass i strongly suggest you buy this guitar
I just got this bass for Christmas. I tried it out in the store and loved it. Huge sound with huge bridge and humbucker. Super light. One of the best things about this is the huge sound but not the huge weight. A lot lighter than some guitars and lighter than most basses. Super fast neck and you hands don't stick. I love it.
I have been playing bass for 30+ years,This one of the best I have ever played.The factory set up was almost perfect,the best I have seen!Looks great in person,The rockfield sound is amazing,You can get any tone You want,The d'addario strings are a plus,it is very light and well balanced,The neck is slim and fast,Don't waste Your Money on a expensive Bass.
I was truly amazed when I tried this bass at a local store. Once plugging it in, I was completely ecstatic. I looked at the price tag and thought someone messed up because of how nice sounding this bass was. It has a really nice feel, looks a bit weird though. Traben gloats on its special bridge designs, and I'm not sure whther it actually makes a difference, but it might be true.This bass rocks.
The bass is awesome, it looks even better in person, the pickups rock, and it's great to play. The extra-big bridge definitely is a bonus, and it looks awesome. I currently have it through a Behringer Ultrabass 900. This bass s definitely worth the money. Just make sure you get a good case for this beautiful thing.
This bass is amazing! the only thing is that it looks really hardcore. its great if your playing really hard rock and it plays amazing. but just make sure it fits your style.
I played one of these in a local store and compared it with Fenders and other top basses that were selling for at least $300 more, yet this is the one I wanted most. Besides an amazing price, the guitar has amazing sound quality and sound flexibility, it has great looks, and it was much lighter than all the others. I loved how light it was on my shoulders!My only regret is that it is impossibly hard to get it in the Granite color right now.
Well I went to an authorized local Traben Dealer and purchased this bass not too long ago, got it for like 350 new (talked the guy down) and I am extremely happy with my purchase. I was undecided between an Aria, Ibanez, and this, but for the price this just came out on top, It gets both high and low end with ease and the tone! it's awesome, a steal at 400 bucks
I just received this bass today and I gotta say, I love it. Just from the little playing around I've done with it so far, I have to say, it sounds better than some basses I've tried that cost hundreds more. The 3 band EQ really is useful for shaping your tone to fit what you like to play. I play everything from blues to metal and I can tell so far that this instrument is more than capable of delivering the tones needed for all styles. From a growling, seething metal tone to a mellow, smooth blues sound, it can do it. The neck is very playable and the out of the box set up was very good. Exceptional value.
