Description Technical Specs
The latest generation of the FoamaBASS™ is now available. The design concept originated from a certified Suzuki Bass Clinician who travels far and wide. There is finally something to meet the needs of the young pre-twinkle bass student. It features a sculpted neck with fingerboard cut from MDF board. It also features the Whisper Bridge and a 12" wooden endpin dowel that screws into the lower body. For endpin adjustment the teacher or parent can simply cut / shorten the dowel to the the desired length.

The FoamaBASS™ is shipped un-assembled for shipping purposes. You will need a standard Phillips screwdriver to install two screws where the neck and body join.
The "Whisper Bridge™" allows the student to properly learn early bow handling and is perfect for your pre-twinkle bass student as they graduate to a "real" instrument. A "faux" bow is also included. Choose from a French or German/Butler style bow in the drop-down box.

Use this "faux" instrument trainer and your young students will grasp the early music principals faster than ever before. Currently the
Foam-a-BASS™ is available in 1/16 size (body length = 26")
