Musicians, check this out! The Monterey Music Store now has in stock a 5-string Wing Bass. Come and visit us at 425 Alvarado Street in Old Monterey.
The 5-string Wing Bass is extremely light and portable. The instrument was born from the idea that you don’t really need the first 11 frets of a bass in order to practice or play when you travel. The only differences between this instrument and a full sized bass are portability and tuning (the Wing is tuned one octave higher – the equivalent of playing the twelfth fret and above). The Wing Bass uses standard strings and gauges as well as standard string spacing so your technique-building exercises can be retained when you return to your main bass.
