"The neck is smooth, the small size unavoidably charming... you'll find yourself grinning as soon as you pick it up"

Joel McIver | Bass Guitar Magazine | June 2012

Small, but perfectly formed.... and constructed to a seriously high standard, the new Mahogany Ortega D-Walker is a welcome addition to the growing ranks of travel-sized acoustic basses on the market.

With its ultra-short custom scale, lightweight construction, cool, modern cutaway design, smooth neck finish and expertly fretted fingerboard, the D-Walker is ready to travel, pleasing on the eye and comfortable, fun and expressive in action, with a full range of tone and versatility.

  • Custom Short Scale - 24.6" (625mm)
  • 19 Frets
  • Cutaway Mahogany Body
  • Mahogany Neck, Sonokelin Fingerboard & Bridge

Ortega Custom Wound ODW-4 Strings 

The D-Walker range is fitted with Ortega's own proprietary, short scale bass strings. Custom made in Germany, the balanced set (.043 - .059 - .071 - 080) features silver-plated windings on nylon silk, with the strings and tension specially designed for bass instruments with a maximum scale length of 630mm/24.8"'.

B-Band A1.2 Pickup System

B-Band's R-Series Under Saddle Transducer, constructed from super-durable, ribbed Emfit® film, delivers unparalleled sound quality, true transparent acoustic reproduction and enhanced string-to-string balance. Its flexible, contiguous structure ends in a socket connector that provides a neat, solder-free connection to the onboard active electronics. 

The discrete and exceptionally light-weight single input A1.2 preamp has a direct frequency response with 24dB of gain, making it a perfect fit with the B-Band UST. The A1.2's active electronics are mounted in a compact tube coupled directly to a high quality endpin jack with an easy access 9V battery holder and single volume control.

The A1.2 now features B-Band's patented HZZZLess™ preamp circuitry which integrates with B-Band pickups more closely, significantly reducing signal noise and also increasing the signal output for a clean and loud, tonally pure response.

  • R-Series Emfit® film Under-Saddle Pickup
  • Lightweight A1.2 Jack Mounted Preamp
  • Sound Hole Mounted Volume Control
  • Box-Tight Battery Holder
  • HZZLess Low Noise / High Output Circuit
