My concept for this instrument was to design a modern bass with a vintage vibe.
The TR-5 5-string bass is lightweight and balanced for standing or seated positions. The integrated thumbrest is totally functional and brilliant.
The design is beautiful and elegant yet somewhat unassuming. But when you play it, you immediately notice the fast response for any style and the super low action.
