Last night we went to GC and Sam Ash to buy a new bass for Kimmi. Again we tried a bunch of basses and again we ended up deciding on another Talman. These basses are real sleepers. We both agreed they sounded better than all other basses they had at the stores for under a grand.

We got the short scale model this time so she will have both options. She named it "Snow White" (she names her basses after Disney princesses :lol: )

Nice! I am not personally a fan of the shape, but I have seen several bassists use these and their tone is great. For example, the bassist from Light the Torch uses one. He makes it sound awesome.

What length is the short scale?

It's 30". So it's not super short, but considerably different than the 34" on her other one.

Wow, that would be trippy to play on. The strings aren't too loose? I can feel a difference between 24.75" and 25.5" on my guitars, let alone a 4" difference.

Definitely looser than the 34" but not too loose. Probably not a bass for down tuning but in standard tuning it feels great.

Congrats and HNBD!!! :party:

That really is a cool looking shape.
Next time i'm out at GC or Sam Ash, I'ma be sure to try one. Still in the market for a 30" but, not in any hurry.

Very cool!

Congrats! You can never have too many instruments, and when you find one you like, no sense in getting much else. :idk: Curious about the sound differences between the two Talmans... :hmm:

Ibanez is really killing it these days. I have my eye on a BTB 5 string.

the main difference is the full scale has a humbucker in the bridge while the short scale is a PJ. So the long scale is a bit more aggressive in the low end.

I think the short scale gives the whole bass a smoother tone overall. I am curious to hear how both sound in a band mix at our next practice.
