A large 3/4small 7/8 sized bass with a strong, even sound
and excellent playability.
after a highly sought-after American-made bass which is no
longer available, the New Standard ClevelandTM
fills the gap between inexpensive student basses and premium
but fragile carved instruments. Truly a professional bass,
it responds equally well both pizzicato and arco. The string
length is reasonable (42"), the construction is strong,
and the body design produces a punchy, deep tone.
neck joint has been standardized and strengthened, the string
length made more manageable, and the neck has been mounted
to allow better access to the upper register.
huge hit with jazz, slap and Broadway theater bassists, it
has a deep, punchy tone with a lot of "puff". It
is a large 3/4 (or small 7/8) size with round back and gamba
of poplar-core laminates, which are light and resonant
spruce and maple exterior veneers
ebony fingerboard, nut, saddle and endpin (10mm with screw-on
oil finish (no tone-robbing polyester, lacquer or heavy conversion

in a fine European maple bridge
inlaid purfling, top and back, which adds to the beauty and helps
prevent edge degradation

neck-set angle for arco playing
models include a fully carved European spruce top.
