Features We Love:
With its distinctive colour, jatoba gives a classic look but also adds some extra character. Tonally it partners perfectly with the neck, producing a strong mids and defined high end that blends together with those low, resonant notes.
AeroSilk Piezo Pickup
This custom pickup for upright bass brings out the full potential of this instrument. Regardless of whether you opt for playing with a bow or your fingers, this pickup has been designed to capture the vibrations then output them at an equalised level. Very impressive indeed!
Seeing as there is very little in the way of a body, keeping it as neck-through ensures that this instrument is still extremely resonant. The 5 piece maple/walnut also makes for a very stable instrument due to this method of construction.
- Full of style and great tones
- Suitable for a variety of styles including jazz, blues, pop and even rock
- Top quality components throughout
