Learning a new instrument can be difficult. If you've never played before, or have minimal experience, it can be frustrating trying to hone your skills, only to feel that you're getting nowhere. One of the biggest reasons why budding musicians give up is that they've got instruments that are clunky and, ultimately, difficult to play.
Ibanez have solved this issue with the TMB30 Talman. Because it's the ultimate bass to help you improve your bass playing ability. It comes with a 30" scale length, shorter than that of a regular bass. This is much easier for your hands to get to grips with, making basslines and sequences easier to play. You'll find your skills improving by the second with the Talman in your hands.
And you'll be able to play at speed easier, too. The TMB30's maple neck is incredibly sleek, making it super-simple to move your hand up and down the scale at pace. So you'll quickly be able to perform up-tempo basslines. This is the perfect bass to set you on your way to becoming a master.
Play your way. The TMB30 is loaded with a pair of awesome, wide-reaching pickups that'll let you play any genre or style you want. At the neck position is a Dynamix P pickup. This humbucking pickup eliminates noise interference, ensuring that everything you play sounds pure and untainted by feedback. A Dynamix J pickup at the bridge adds brightness to your tone, ensuring that your music sounds full and rich - even at the top of the scale. This versatile mix of electronics means that whether you're looking to play jazz, metal, pop, funk, or good old fashioned rock 'n' roll, you've got the right bass to use.
The Ibanez story is an intriguing one. The first historical mentions of Ibanez guitars come from the 1930s, when the instrument sales division of a Japanese bookstore chain began manufacturing Spanish acoustic guitars. Their strange start to life was a sign of things to come: Ibanez regularly got into legal trouble in the mid-20th century for copying the designs of Western guitar manufacturers.
After a particularly costly lawsuit in the 1970s, Ibanez abandoned their strategy of using other established models as the basis for their own instruments. Instead, they began crafting their own, unique guitars in the hope of establishing themselves in the guitar-making world. This was a move that paid off massively - the individual style and sound of Ibanez's instruments set them apart from everything else available on the market, and the company quickly became a gigantic success story.
In the intervening years, a wide selection of some of the music industry's biggest and best artists have used Ibanez instruments in their music. Their bass guitars have gained particularly legendary status for their unique, wide-reaching sound. They've been used in the music of many well-known artists from a plethora of genres, ranging from U2 to Slipknot, Earth, Wind, & Fire to Carrie Underwood, and Al Green to Snoop Dogg.
