This New Shen SB 150 hybrid 3/4 flatback (2020-7-48) is a good example of this brand new model for Shen. The SB 150 model 3/4 hybrid is a good choice for students and performers on a budget. The spruce top on this particular is especially nice, with a complex voice and the beauty of the “hazelfichte”, or bear claw figure. The flat back configuration gives a powerful quality to the pizz voice, familiar in the SB 190 Rogeri hybrid flatback models. The replacement Despiau bridge has been fit with anodized gold adjusters. The tailpiece has been upgraded to the Hill style tailpiece found standard on the SB 200 models. Strung with D’Addario Zyex strings, this bass has a strong jazz voice and good response to a bow for orchestral play. Dimension are: Top length 42 5/8″, Upper bout width 19 3/4″, Middle bout width 14 1/2″, Lower bout width 26 1/8″, Rib depth at tail 8 3/8″, Rib depth at upper bout corner 7 1/2″, Rib depth at neck 6″, String length 41 1/4″. This Shen SB 150 3/4 flatback bass has a particularly expressive voice. With cover.
