ARIA Sinsonido AS691B
Witness evolution in action. The Sinsonido fretted 4 bass is a very original concept and it comes with stunning good looks as standard too.
This bass is not just a great performer on stage or in the studio but it does a stunning job as a light weight, compact but sturdy travel guitar and for late night practice it is superb (Sinsonido is the Spanish word for silence).
The mahogany body and removable frame provide comfortable playability for bassists whether seated or standing. You can even remove the frame whilst standing to create a unique looking, light weight and supremely comfortable instrument on stage. Not only that but with its integrated headphone pre-amp you can also use this bass wherever and whenever you like and any time of the day or night!
The Sinsonido bass features a bolt on maple neck with adjustable trussrod and a rosewood fingerboard. The special stereo condenser microphone pick-up, made by Wright Guitar Technology in the U.S. produces remarkable tones when compared to most commonly usedpiezo units and the guitar also features a built-in stereo preamp for headphones. The pick-up forms part of the bridge which is also height adjustable.
In fact, the secret of the natural acoustic sound lies in the innovative pick-up with its two internal condenser microphones. These sense the string vibrations in stereo and thus are able to produce the more natural, 3-dimensional sounds of a real acoustic guitar rather than a flat-sounding sound associated with many piezo pick-ups.
