The Stentor Rockabilly is great for players who prefer an instrument that responds better to slap playing styles. The bridge is adjustable so you can adjust the string height to whichever suits your playing style best. The price and quality are perfect if you're looking for a bass which you can transport around to gigs. The bass comes with a good quality bow so you will be able to widen the palette of sounds available to you. A padded rayon bass cover is included as well for transport and storage.
This instrument is made out of the solid tonewoods, maple and spruce. These woods are selected specially for their tonal properties. The bass is made out of laminated spruce on the front and laminated maple on the back and sides. Maple is a traditional wood used in string instrument construction and is the same wood you'll find on top of the range and antique instruments. The coloured finish adds an aura of personality to this instrument making it well suited to the style of playing. The machine tuning heads are brass ensuring a precise and stable tuning.
Stentor are a well known and well regarded string instrument maker, especially amongst teachers and students. You can often find their instruments in school music departments or being recommended by teachers. This is due to their cheap price but good quality and durable construction, making them ideal for these settings. This is the explicit goal of Stentor who believe that every child should have an opportunity to play a musical instrument and that music should be a part of everyone's personal development in life.
