Base sound with pickup and circuit

< base

There is a neck of various lengths even if saying "scale" of the neck in one word. And what is the scale of the base? Listen to the question. Here are four typical base scales α I would like to introduce the spot♪

Long scale (about 864 mm / 34 inches)

Bass scale! It is the standard scale of the base.

JB here Pb here

Based on the standard Jazz base and Precision Bass, most bases are based on long scale. There is a side that cannot be long, and the tension and sound of the string are clear, and the sound comes out to the sound. By the way, even if it says "long scale", the Rickenbacker is about 845 mm (33 1 / 4 inch), and Gibson is about 870 mm (34 1 / 4 inch), and there is a difference in length by the manufacturer.

Short scale (762 mm / 30 inches)

Main product / brand

Fender Mustang, Gibson EB, albic, HOFNER horizon bass, ferries pi-zo, pignose

Because the scale is small, the tension is slightly weak, and the bass becomes weak and blurry, and the tuning becomes unstable, but the scale becomes shorter because the interval of the FRET becomes narrow, and the fingering (FRET movement) becomes easy The play ability is high, and there is charm of the short scale. It is recommended for the base / the vocal, the guitarist's residence, the woman and the child♪

Medium scale (814 mm / 32 inches)

Main product / brand

Yamaha movement B, fender Japan jb62m, albic IC etc

Long scale / scale scale scale. In the bassist of the technical system, the feeling of the FRET is narrow compared with long, and the movement is important, and it is the scale which many choice is chosen. Although it is possible to have a thick bass and a short scale of the short scale are improved slightly, it may be still more than the long scale, but the scale is shortened as well as the short scale, and the fingering (FRET movement) becomes easy There are also Merritt's ability to play! At present, it is adopted as a base for beginners, etc., and the scale as a beginning is spreading. It is recommended for the woman, the child, the guitarist♪
