Dingwall bass guitars are perfect for on stage and in the studio. They are at the cutting edge of contemporary bass design. These bass guitars are crafted by master luthier Sheldon Dingwall in ‎Saskatchewan, Canada and Dingwall is considered to be among the most respected bass guitar builders of today.

Although now made in 4 and 6 string variations, Dingwall's reputation is built on their phenomenal 5 string basses. Described as having ‘the best B in the business’, Dingwall basses bring power and definition to the low B that’s not been heard before. This is thanks to their multiscale or ‘fan-fret’ system. Modelled after a grand piano, the string length changes depending on the note. This means that each string is the right length to ring true and authoritatively.

Dingwall use the finest woods and components. Several models feature Hipshot bridges and Darkglass preamps.
