Breedlove Pursuit Bass

Bend, OR (May 6, 2014) -- Breedlove Stringed Instruments is proud to present the Pursuit Bass – designed and quality checked in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A.

The aptly named Pursuit Series was created for players who are newly committed to pursuing their music career and are ready to share their music with the world. The Pursuit models offer Breedlove’s distinctively crafted sound and are ready for amplification with Fishman ISYS+ electronics, and feature built-in USB ports, so laying down tracks on your laptop or computer is easy and convenient.

The Pursuit Bass is a concert body shape with a 32” scale, which makes it easier to play. The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never muddy. The Breedlove Bridge Truss reduces tension on the soundboard of the bass, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the bass, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT- equipped basses is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

Breedlove Solo Bass

Breedlove Stringed Instruments is proud to present the Solo Bass – designed and quality checked in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A.

If you’ve ever tried to write a song in a noisy room or on a rambunctious tour bus, you know how hard it can be to really hear your own instrument. The Solo Series models have a side sound hole monitor to allow you to hear your music as if you were standing in front of the instrument. It’s a pretty amazing innovation, since the Solo models offer the same volume and distinctively crafted sound you’d expect from a Breedlove – the sound hole monitor doesn’t diminish the power or tone of the instrument, it simply allows you to hear every nuance of your performance as your audience hears it.

The Solo Bass is a jumbo body shape with a 34” scale. Sound from the Solo Bass feels sonically propelled by the movement of so much air inside the body. The Solo Bass is also equipped with a Breedlove Bridge Truss which reduces tension on the soundboard of the bass, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the bass, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT- equipped basses is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

Breedlove Studio Bass

Breedlove Stringed Instruments is proud to present the Studio Bass – designed and quality checked in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A.

When you’re ready to capture your music in the recording environment, whether in a home studio or a professional studio, the Studio Series delivers. These models were designed to fill the complete tonal range. The Bass offers equal balance and warmth thanks to the sapele back and sides. The jumbo body delivers big acoustic depth and presence.

“I’ve been looking for years to find an acoustic bass that sounds great - and by that I mean with controllable eq so it’s full but not too boomy - but also feels and plays great. My Breedlove has it all and I couldn’t be happier!” – Jeff Pilson, Foreigner - Studio Bass
