Mo'B Bass

“The tone of an instrument originates with the string, and the primary factor that controls string tone is scale length.” — From Scale Length and Tone by Ralph Novak.

Bass players that are looking for a B-string that is fat, rich and full will find it on the Novax® Mo’B Bass. With a 36” scale length, this B-string has voice definition impossible on a “short scale” 35” 5-string. The G string is sweeter too, because of its shorter scale. In fact, the Mo’B Bass has 5 scale lengths so each string sings with its own ideal voice giving the instrument intonation you can put up against a grand piano. Using his patented Fanned-Fret® system, Ralph Novak hand builds every Mo’B bass to have beautifully balanced tone and string tension not available by design on any conventionally fretted bass.
