No Treble: Breedlove Bass Review

No Treble: Breedlove Bass Review

From www.notreble.com Breedlove Stringed Instruments has revamped their line of acoustic-electric bass guitars with three models including the Pursuit, the Solo, and the Studio basses. Breedlove Pursuit Bass The Pursuit is 32-inch scale bass built around the company’s Concert body shape that first appeared in 1992. The bass is built with a solid sitka spruce top and sapele laminate back and sides, but the lead feature of the bass is its Fishman ISYS+ electronics. The preamp is fitted with a USB port for interfacing with DAWs like GarageBand. The Pursuit’s Breedlove Bridge Truss reduces tension on the bass’s sound board to allow the top to vibrate for more freely. Breedlove says this produces more sustain, balance, and clarity. Other features include a pinless bridge, a bone nut, and mini 15:1 chrome tuners. See full instrument profile here. Breedlove Solo Bass The Solo features a Jumbo body with a solid cedar top and nato neck. The bass is set apart with an additional side mounted sound hole that lets you hear the bass...

Premier Guitar Review: Pursuit 12-String Guitar

Premier Guitar Review: Pursuit 12-String Guitar

From PremierGuitar.com Breedlove Pursuit 12-String Breedlove is known for an innovative and original approach to flattop design, and 12-strings have been part of the company’s offerings since its inception in the early ’90s. Breedlove was synonymous with high-end instruments for years, but for the last decade or so, Breedlove has also offered affordable imported guitars, including the Chinese-made Pursuit series. The Pursuit 12-String is instantly recognizable as a Breedlove, thanks to its distinctive headstock and cutaway shapes. The guitar also distinguishes itself from the majority of affordable 12s with a concert-size body that measures 15.5" across the lower bout. Many guitar makers would shy away from building a 12-string with a small body like this for fear of losing power and bass response. But Breedlove’s internal bridge truss system (which uses a wooden dowel to connect the bridge with the end-block to transfer energy to the sides), is designed, in part, to help generate extra bottom-end. So if anyone can pull off...

Bend, OR (April 15, 2014) -- Breedlove Stringed Instruments is proud to present the 2014 Discovery Series – designed and quality checked in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A. The Discovery models are exceptionally well-designed and easy to play, and were created specifically to support newcomers to the instrument.

The Discovery models will inspire you to dabble, to dream, and to explore the guitar in a way that most entry-level models simply can’t.

Premier Guitar Reviews the Premier Auditorium Rosewood

Premier Guitar Reviews the Premier Auditorium Rosewood

From Premierguitar.com Breedlove is one of the most original makers of acoustic guitars to emerge in the last few decades. Now owned by Two Old Hippies (which also owns the Bedell and Weber brands), the Bend, Oregon, outfit’s offerings include instruments that range from quality, affordable import models to extravagant, one-of-a-kind instruments built in the spirit of Breedlove’s original vision as a bespoke custom shop. The new U.S.-built Premier series sits somewhere in between the most affordable Breedloves and the most exclusive ones—although the Premier Auditorium Rosewood reviewed here often manages to sound custom-shop luxurious at a much more accessible price. Understated Beauty With its distinctive, asymmetrical headstock and unique take on the auditorium profile, the Premier Auditorium Rosewood is instantly recognizable as a Breedlove. Appointments are simple and unfussy: a single ring of abalone for a rosette, basic white body binding with black-and-white purfling around the top, and no back strip. Rather than...
