The company's first truly acoustic bass ever is the fraternal twin to their CL-3E acoustic 6-string.

Redlands, CA (March 26, 2019) -- Introducing the CL-3BE Acoustic Bass, the newest member of Traveler Guitar’s expanding hollow-body acoustic line. Traveler’s first truly acoustic bass ever, the CL-3BE, is the fraternal twin to their tremendously popular CL-3E acoustic 6-string.

Like its fraternal twin brother, the CL-3BE packs some serious punch for such a relatively small package. This head-turning, 3/4 size acoustic/electric bass features mahogany back and sides and a solid spruce top. It also has lower cutaway and upper beveled top to allow for maximum comfort and playability.

The CL-3BE is super portable, super fun to play, and perfect for practice or performance. The gig-bag is included, and like so many of Traveler’s other models, it fits in airline overhead bins.


  • Built-in headphone amp with aux-in for jamming along to backing tracks
  • Shadow Electronics NanoFlex pickup with custom preamp
  • Solid Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides
  • Striped ebony fingerboard
  • Weighs only 3 lbs. 9 oz.
  • Free gig-bag included

Traveler Guitar has been the industry’s leading manufacturer of travel-sized instruments for over 25 years. Their guitars fit in tiny spaces, play with giant sound and feature a variety of tuners, headphone amps, and EQs designed to let you practice, play or record wherever the road takes you.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.


Fender Dual Marine Layer


Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
