Superior Design, Superior Sound!
The TrueTapper provides sound quality suitable for pro-level studio recording gigs.
Features: Full string set of six bass and six melody. Blonde instrument, with neck-through construction of bright-sounding maple, and alder wings. The neck is of 'seven-part' construction for strength and stability. The maple and alder woods produce a clear and lively sound --
- 'Eclipse' Crafted with superior design for superior sound, the Eclipse uses two custom ‘flat-top’ dual-rail pickups to produce a powerful and clear tone. If a more mellow sound is desired, wide-sweep tone controls roll off high frequency content. Choice of Creme or Black pickguard. (See Video Demonstration of the Truetapper Eclipse.)
Only $1600 US
- 'Dragon' Warmly exotic, Dragon has pickups of our 'TwoGold' design, giving you matched gold-case wide-coil pickups with adjustable pole pieces for fine-tuning each string's sound. The TwoGold array creates a warm, mellow, and rich tone. (See photo on the right, and huge photo link above.)
Only $1700 US
- 'Storm' Atmospheric disturbance. To the inherent clean tone of TrueTapper maple and alder, Storm adds powerful Bartolini pickups. Bartolini's legendary tone yields a surprising clarity, with more of the thundering bass you crave, and a lightning clarity of melody expression. Magnificent sound. (See huge photo link above.)
Only $1900 US
All TrueTapper models feature the Buzz Feiten Intonation System so you can play in tune anywhere on the fretboard, plus deep-set dual truss-rods for precision play, and tilt-back headstock for long sustain.
Included free: 3-meter stereo output cord, adjustable MegStrap, and both the Easy Touch-Style Bassics and Easy Touch-Style Rhythm method books.
"Gold" Models: The "Eclipse Gold", "Dragon Gold", and "Storm Gold" models are equipped with custom Graph Tech ivory-colored 'Tusq' nut and saddles to enhance character and depth in bass, brighten melody tone, and create even greater sustain for held notes.
"Onyx" Models: The "Eclipse Onyx", "Dragon Onyx", and "Storm Onyx" models are equipped with Graph Tech charcoal-colored StringSaver' nut and saddles to enrich character and depth in bass, sweeten melody tone, boost sustain, reduce string breakage, and let strings remain in tune longer on the gig.
"Dark" Models: Prefer dark wood, and a darker sound? Customize your TrueTapper instrument with premium dark wood, to create a ‘Dark Eclipse,’ ‘Dark Dragon,’ or ‘Dark Storm.’
Purpose: The TrueTapper brings superior design and superior sound for touch-style music. Its array of tonal choices make it powerful for classical players, country-music fans, and for those who play ballads and show tunes. With common effects, sound the blues or rock steady.
