Ovation’s 4-string bass features a solid-spruce top with scalloped X-bracing for superior note definition, and its classic Mid-Depth cutaway composite body delivers balanced acoustic tone and is comfortable to hold and play.
Sound holes on the bass-string side of the instrument enhance lower-frequency projection. The bass also features a satin-finished maple neck and a black-stained rosewood fretboard. A full 34” scale delivers harmonically rich timbres across the instrument’s entire range. With its onboard compressor, both the OP-Pro preamp and the OCP-1K pickup provide control over the attack and sustain of every note.
