The bass model of the studio 49 10000 range is perhaps the best model. Its big resonance box and long bars make for a rich and earthy sound whilst being reasonably light at about 8kg. Like all of the 1000 range models the resonance box is solid pine and the note bars are produced from fiberglass, which makes for a long lasting instrument with virtually no detectable fluctuations in tuning - as can sometimes be the case with solid wood note bars. The incorporated handles make the instrument extremely easy to move and store with great overall build quality. The model comes 2 x F# and 1 x Bb note bars which makes for a more versatile instrument. It can also be located with the 49-HBXG100
chromatic half model which creates a fully chromatic instrument.
