Description Technical Specs
The design concept for the YM Pre-Bass™ originated from a certified Suzuki Bass Clinician. Those in the bass community teaching young students are overjoyed now there is finally something to meet the needs of the pre-twinkle bass student. There is nothing else like it in the world! It features a real maple neck with ebony fingerboard and nut (unfinished). Along with that it come with the popular "Whisper Bridge" (TM) and a 12 wooden endpin dowel that is tapered as to easily slip into position. For endpin adjustment the teacher or parent can simply cut the dowel to the the desired length, gently taper it with sand paper and you are good to go.

The YM Pre-Bass™ is shipped to you unassembled. The only tool you will need is a standard Phillips screwdriver to install two screws into the pre drilled holes.
The genius "Whisper Bridge™" allows the student to properly learn early bow handling. It is perfect for your pre-twinkle bass students as they graduate to a "real" instrument.

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

You can:
1. Size young students to determine what bass they should be on.
2. Teach early finger patterns.
3. Teach correct bowing.
4. Teach correct body posture.
5. Instruct the young student about the bass without the fear of damaging a real instrument and prepare them for the time they will receive a real instrument!

The YM Pre-Bass™ is NOT A TOY and should only be used under adult supervision.
