It's Here! The Acoustic 5-string Bass...
October 9, 2009
At last, it's done...and it was really worth the wait.
This bass is really making us happy. Low to high, the tone is big and solid, with lots of punch. The B-string is also very well-integrated with the rest of the strings, with a very even volume and tone transition through the low positions.
Our usual recipe of Honduran mahogany back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, and Pau Ferro fingerboard and bridge strike a nice balance: smooth warmth and nice, present 'growl'. This will sit beautifully in a mix - full and deep, but still well-defined and clear.
It's hard to put this bass down long enough to write this!
This beautiful bass is going to Sleek Elite in Japan. Coming up very soon is a 4-string fretless for our UK dealer, in some very fetching curly koa.
