Travis Bean TB2000Published on 02/05/09 at 12:02
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in the USA in the 70's (roughly between 1974 and 1978). About 1020 copies produced.
Mine has the n879, which would indicate, for pif, a factory around 1977 records of APRS.
20 frets (a'll be fine as a), 2 Bartolini humbuckers, a serious level with the handle, a slightly more acute prs the bridge a split coil Precision, but that produces so many mediums that a Music Man Stingray.
Simple bridge in tthe kind Fender bent steel but far more pais, equipped with adjustable screw massive bridges BTR.
Rglages standards: a volume and a tone with a microphone + slecteur 3 positions.
No active electronics (we will not complain).
Koa body, walnut varieties of Hawa.
The neck ... ah!...…

The neck ... ah! the handle ... We hear about APRS ...
Well ... Tourn size in a fresh raw aluminum. Driver and dmontable, traversing ropes, empty head, Schaller: Mechanical king size bed. The beefy all points of view.

UTILIZATION

At first sight, it is said that the handle parat pais, much like that of a PB. But the surprise action is very smooth. It must be said that the profile of the handle, virtually inaltrable (less than a run over 38t), allows a complete lack of compromise on the cart between the ropes and down the entire length of the pitch. So, has not frieze nowhere, unless you pull the strings like a nag. Ms. Racho with hands, the neck is very, very very see, easy. Moreover, it is like no other agreement. A small contrle harmonics before playing, just to reassure, weed ... no ... give nothing, has never moves.
Vingtime the box is the junction sleeve / case, like a Rickenbacker: ACCS to acute Royal.
No comment on ergonomics, has still a low 70s. In the era, fortunately, we did not draw even instruments like godasses Scholl.
However, I would not even said that PSE as an anvil, but close.
I think I can put a left clavicle in titanium with carbon reinforcements branchs on ctes to compensate a little. Go! We made it ...

SOUNDS

The Travis Bean can agree a lot of styles of music as long as we forced himself to look good on his amp. The bug is delicate and fawn any sort of sound Travis Bean. Whether on an Ampeg, Bassman or a Trace, the sound is standard. Lots of bass, medium rather galvanized, treble mtalliques that really make one think Ricken, 4001 in a tad more aggressive when playing mdiator. Sustain impressive. One might think that TB size for 2000 is the slap (Yeah, not fond of this kind of thing ...) with its aluminum handle, but beware: not in the hands of bcherons. Ds that hits a bit strong, it seems that the wallpaper will debonding walls as adpots.
More intressant, she released an amazing bass sound in Config neck pickup alone. Please note that TB does not support all brands of strings, even the most rputes. I climb of D'Addario 45-100 or 105 since it always seems to be the best package.
I play on a Trace Elliot Gnrale without effects most often and find I get the sound palette that suits me in the styles m'intressent (darn specific on a). Good will and Pop Rock Soul overall in my case.
In short, the Travis Bean has a `sound so personal that it is unrealistic to see a five-legged sheep who can do everything.

OVERALL OPINION

24 years of service with cherries, my shovel.
What I like most? Well, all ...
What I like least? Sometimes she is so kind, the carne ... Anyway, has, I also like.
I tried and played on a lot of stuff humble or sublime, but it is the only one I keep in almost thirty years. I fell in love with ds I put hands on while I did not have the money to buy. Stroke of luck, she is still at least two years of trans Paul Beuscher and nobody jumps on it (the sausages!).
Impossible to judge the relative quality price I'd pay 4500 francs in 1985 what we did today in Euro 1130 constant value. Had I bought today at market prices (a very nice clean as any TB mine is about 3000 roros) with the same calculation in constant euros, rose 5,000 euros . Of anything. In short, impossible Determines the cluck of the craft. Stick to know that less than 3000 euros, we do not find much ... and that any rate, for the quality workmanship of this bass is frankly not theft.
And with the exprience, yes I would sign with both hands and I think I could carrment a palette of 12.
