OVERVIEW

Packed with innovations to lead adventurous players on their music journey.

The Boden Bass Prog model was developed for bass players who seek a more modern and aggressive sound that can be fine-tuned with the utmost precision. Featuring a lightweight chambered Swamp Ash body with solid Flame Maple top and Roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard, the natural acoustic sound is balanced with plenty of girth but with a bright cutting edge when needed with the bass’s onboard preamp equalization well as the controls on the amplifier. The Ebony fretboard is slick and fast to play, while also providing a lot of highs that help you cut through the mix. 

The natural acoustic character of the Boden Bass Prog is perfectly matched with Nordstrand Big Rig dual coil pickups with offset pole pieces that result in a big multidimensional sound and the onboard Darkglass Tone Capsule preamplifier that exponentially expands the instrument’s tonal possibilities. Although superbly versatile and well-rounded, the Prog 4 and 5 excels the most in a dense mix of aggressive and expansive sounds, whether you are filling up a certain frequency range as part of a bigger whole or when you want to cut through to make your individual musical statement.

What makes it special?
The Boden Bass Original was designed to provide exceptional comfort, ergonomics and playability with its lightweight headless construction, multi-scale neck, and the patented EndurNeck neck profile. For the bass player, this is especially important knowing how much a solidbody bass can weigh.

The proprietary hardware is constructed of aircraft grade aluminum that plays a major part in the instrument’s unique woody and organic acoustic character besides reducing the overall weight. Premium materials such as Swamp Ash for the body with solid ¼” Flame Maple top and roasted Maple for the neck and Birdseye Maple for the fretboard and proprietary components along with world class manufacturing processes and techniques are used to produce these instruments of exceptional build quality, workmanship, and reliability.

What does it do?
Besides the striking visual design aesthetics and unmatched ergonomic features, the very best materials, components and craftsmanship combine to provide a bass that is easy to play, reduces fatigue for your hands as well as your back, and which produces stunningly clear yet warm organic sounds that will suit virtually any musical genre and style.

Acoustically, the Boden Bass Prog is powerful, articulate, punchy and balanced with just the right amount of high-end to cut through the mix and these characteristics are further enhanced and complemented by the highly acclaimed Nordstrand Big Rig dual coil humbucking pickups and the highly-touted and exceptionally versatile Darkglass Tone Capsule 3-band EQ preamp.

Who is it for?
The Boden Bass Prog models are for advanced professional bassists who seek the utmost in playing comfort as well as a wide range of great modern bass sounds that can be used in a variety of professional musical environments, whether that’s a critical time-sensitive recording session or the largest of concert stages in which there is no room for errors.

All of the features on the Boden Bass Prog were thoughtfully designed, engineered and implemented with such players in mind – from the premium materials to the scale length of each string and from each component of the hardware to the layout of the controls. The Boden Bass Prog is for the serious bassist who requires a powerful and flexible instrument that sits well in a dense mix and complements heavily overdriven guitar tones as well as expansive keyboard sounds.
