The Sigma BMC-15E+ is a jumbo-size, all-mahogany acoustic bass that's great for playing both unplugged or through an amp thanks to the built in Fishman preamp.
Acoustic bass guitars are unique instruments and a great addition to any bass player's arsenal. Acoustic basses have an organic, earthier sound, offering tones that approach upright bass territory. This is helped by the all-mahogany construction of this bass as this classic wood is known for providing acoustics with a warm, smooth tone.
The jumbo body size of this guitar helps balance the 34" scale length instrument and also helps it project greater volume, an important factor due to the lower sound frequencies basses produce. Volume definitely won't be an issue on stage thanks to the built in Fishman Presys II electronics. With Fishman Presys II electronics you can plug right in and play - the preamp offers some simple tone shaping controls and even has a built in tuner!
For bassists looking for a new sound the BMC-15E is a great option.
