Traben is releasing the traditional-looking Chaos International Bigger Bridge system
Chaos Internal Bigger Bridge system
Traben Bass Company is committed to maximizing a bass’ sound and performance by using bridges that have more mass and bridge to body contact. The new design came about after players requested a slightly more traditional appearance with that bigger bridge performance (most Traben bridges are larger than industry standards).
The Chaos is smaller than a typical Traben bridge, but still provides the same mass as the Phoenix series (Traben’s biggest big bridge version). A portion of the mass is recessed under the top mounted bridge. Traben designed a special Internal Bridge to provide added mass and bridge to body contact. The external and internal bridges are tightly connected to each other as well as the body to maximize performance.
The Chaos bridge system has carefully selected metal combinations. While the external bridge is cast from stee,l the internal bridge is made out of aluminum. The aluminum''s purpose is to enhances the low end for a sonic performance.
The system features locking saddles for added tuning stability and better sonic performance. Strings can be mounted from the external bridge or through the body. The added length of the strings when run through the body gives the bass a tighter feel. The length can be used for just the low B string on a 5 string to balance out string-to-string feel.
The Chaos Internal Bigger Bridge is available on the new Chaos Series basses, the John Moyer (Disturbed) Signature Series Havoc and Greg Weeks (The Red Chord) Signature Series Bass.
