Travel bass practice board?

No, mine does not. In fact, I didn’t realize how bad my VOX headphone amp was until I tried the built in amp on the Traveler.

No not always but I did find this one annoying.

“I can’t play this” whilst trying to balance the tiny travel bass on his knee in his pyjamas without a strap.

Seriously, just go get a strap and put on some pants! :joy:

Now HIS schtick got old after 2 videos.
It’s a rubber claw dude, and now your hand is gross and sweaty. Just hang it on the wall and be done with it. Leave the prop comedy to Carrot Top

if it were 1992, Lobster would totally have a Cable Access TV show. And it would be exactly the same as his youtube channel.

Lobster’s okay. Hey’s out there doing his thing and being himself. I mostly ignore him, and listen to the bass playing. He gets a lot of that in.

I’m just getting back on grid after being in the Montana backwoods for two weeks. We did have a tiny generator that we ran occasionally to charge stuff. I took my JBL Eon One powered speaker (12 hour battery life) and an Ibanez Mikro (restrung with D’Addario tape wounds).

I specifically bought the Mikro for this trip and I loved how it performed :sunglasses:

Short of visiting Japan, Reverb is your best bet.

@Ben, I have been thinking of picking up a Mikro (or similar Affinity Mini) as a travel bass. How did that work out for you?

@david.addis Sorry for the delayed response. Took the Mikro (and a Mustang) on my off grid vacation. The Mikro exceeded my expectations…. I received it ($176@sweetwater) and the tapewounds (D’Addario direct)on the same day and was traveling 2 days later. It’s a fantastic value, plays nice, featherweight. I sniffed around Taylor and Guild acoustics for a while (couldn’t trigger). This is a nice alternative and I love having it in the family room with a nearby powered speaker. 100% sweetness when working a song/chart… or just feeling the need to play ;))

Jerry (who is an extended travel / stays user) noted that it didn’t work for him. I totally get that ( its a super short scale). But wow, it’s pretty cool for $200

I found the Traveler Guitar TB-4P worked well for me, I had it at work in the office and every day during lunch time would eat my lunch and then go through my playlist, it has a built in amp to plug in your earbuds or headphones, and an Aux. jack for my phone which had all my itunes playlist to play along. The neck has a good feel with it, and is well built, they’re $500 new or less if you shop around and probably even less if you go used. I took it on a 12 day cruise to Hawaii, brought it up to a lounge deck and plunked away without out disturbing anyone, you don’t need to drag an amp with it, comes with a nice gig bag, I think it was the ticket for me. I think it’s cool with the headless and tuning gears in the body, kinda unique. Test drive one if you can, I think you’d be sold…

Absolutely, I am totally on your side, that happens to me all the time.
