Bass Club Chicago spent some serious time seeking out an affordable yet high quality Acoustic bass to offer to our customers, once we came across Boulder Creek the decision was easy. These basses are well built and have several great features. The sound is rich and full when unplugged and very powerful and clear when plugged in. Also for the price point, I dont think there is a better Acoustic/Electric bass out there. Below are some specs
The tops, sides, backs, and necks are selected from high quality woods from all over the world. Both solid spruce and solid cedar tops are available. Backs and sides are available in both mahogany and rosewood.
Features and Specifications
The “Solitaire” Series uses the same “SBS” bracing system as the “Stage & Studio Series” guitars. The “Solitaire” was designed for the player, not the audience. Rather than a front port to project the sound outward, the “Solitaire” features a port on the top side of the guitar to direct the sound to the player. Since guitar players spend over 90% of the time playing with just themselves and their guitar, the “Solitaire” is the perfect choice for your second guitar.
There were some interesting results when the first “Solitaire” samples arrived. Even though the guitars were designed for the player and not the audience, the front sound projection was incredible. Since the soundboard increased in size due to not cutting a hole in the front, it produced more treble, midrange, and overall volume. The sound port on the top of the guitar produced enhanced low range frequencies which could be heard all around the room as low frequencies are omni-directional. In other words, this guitar sounds incredible out front also! When partnered with the AB4-T Preamp system, it makes the perfect guitar for stage, professional recording, and home studio applications. With the “Solitaire’s great playability and tone, it’s the perfect choice for any working musician. (And it also looks really, really cool.)
