Whenever we go to island festivals one rarely sees a standup double bass, but often an oversize guitar looking bass. I own an Ibanez AEB100E. It does not have a lot of acoustic output, but enough for a couple of acoustical jammers. The AEB100E's Fishman Sonicore pickup and SST preamp adjust for a natural bass sound through all types of bass amplification and P.A. systems I've tried. The SST pream has controls for volume, shape, bass, middle, treble and phase. There's also an onboard chromatic tuner. The action is like butter and makes for fast movement with the rosewood fretboard. One has to make sure and keep their hands on the strings between songs, or a howling acoustical feedback will result. The visual of an acoustic bass goes a long way with island acoustic music, too.

I do not recommend using one without amplification, except in up close jamming situations. It works well with my Roland Microcube Bass RX on the B Man setting with compression on. Ric


It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission!

i have a Tacoma Thunderchief acoustic bass that sounds pretty good acoustically and is even better using the built in pick up. there is a cheaper version made by Olympia OB3CE but i agree like ricdoug says best played through an amp or PA.

I have one of the Olympia basses. Not bad, not quite as nice as the Tacoma version but pretty good. I should play it more than I do. So many instruments, so little time....

I agree that it has to be plugged in for anything more than practice in the living room.
