Boulder Creek Unveils the Travel Bass

The Dual Port System lets you hear more of what you are playing while the increased soundboard area produces greater projection.

San Jose, CA (December 8, 2015) -- When you need big bass sound in a small package, think of the Boulder Creek Travel Bass. Boulder Creek’s Suspended Bracing System makes it possible for the bass to product fat, full sustain, richness of tone and addictive playability.

The Dual Port System lets you hear more of what you are playing while the increased soundboard area produces greater projection. The absence of a center soundhole reduces or cancels out feedback issues while still maintaining a fat, warm, bass sound.

It is very versatile with its longer scale which is the most popular feature that bassists point out. “It is fun and easy to play because you don’t feel cramped, and the sound will surprise you” - Chris Donohue (Tom Jones).

It comes with Aquila Thunder Gut strings. Tone woods consist of a solid Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. The bass comes configured with Boulder Creek’s UK-300T Preamp and Tuner.

The late Eddie Van Halen spent much of his early career in search of what’s now known as the “brown sound.” Years after cracking the code, he helped bottle various versions of the recipe into the 5150 line of amps. Various iterations of these amps are now studio and stage staples, and are often used in heavy genres that transcend Van Halen’s vision.
