All About The Bass - New Chowny SWB Pro & Bass-Mosphere Pedal

Construction

Using a mixture of premium tonewoods, including a gorgeous Ash/Walnut body and 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck, this bass has exotic aesthetics and boasts beautiful tones.

With the Ash from the body keeping the low-end balanced and punchy, the Maple pieces that form the neck will add in some snappy and vibrant brightness, giving notes plenty of pop and sizzle to cut through a mix. Adorned with a sleek Ebony fretboard, the SWB Pro's neck also has a smooth satin finish that guarantees optimal playability in all conditions. 

Electronics

The SWB Pro is powered by a potent pair of active EMG Jazz pickups, a tried and tested combination that ensures excellent tonal clarity and pronounced note definition. Whether you play finger-style or with a pick, these pickups have great dynamic range, letting all of your playing articulation shine through.

The 2-band active EMG preamp allows you to get the absolute most out of the pickups, letting you tame any brittle top-end or bellowing low-end with the dedicated treble and bass controls.

Here's what Chowny say about the SWB Pro Scott Whitley 4 String Bass in Ash/Walnut:

Traditionally ‘short scale bass’ has largely been associated with student basses and limited, muddy tones – not any more! The SWB Pro professional, modern-sounding short scale bass affordable to everyone.

The SWB range are incredibly flexible basses to suit any style of playing – from growly traditional through to scooped, hi-fi slap tones and everything in between.

Now the SWB Pro takes this to the next level with boutique finishes and a number of significant upgrades. With a matched EMG Jazz Pickup pair and EMG Pre-Amp as standard, this bass features a 5 piece satin walnut and maple neck, wilkinson tuners and ebony fretboard.
