The foundation of sound
The wood and it's sonic characteristics are the key element in the sound of our bass guitars (and every type of wood has it's own complex tonal attributes). What isn't in the wood will not be found in the instrument. We apply all our knowledge about tone woods and how to combine them in order to fulfill our customers notion of a certain sound. To reach that level to be able to do this it takes years of experience along with both trial and error. Eventhough nobody can predict the final outcome to 100%, a huge number of satisfied customers all over the world is proof that we actually come very close to the desired result.
The more than 30 types of tone wood we use include beautiful and rare pieces from all over the world as well as regional tone wood. Every single piece is hand selected to make sure we use just the best to become the foundation of your instrument. Our woods are stored properly under best climatic conditions for an extended period of time to ensure it is in a ready-to-use condition when taken off of the shelf for you. The majority of it is stored for more than 15 years, some extraordinary pieces are even over 100 years old, passed on from one generation to the next one. By the time we choose it to become a part of your bass guitar it already has a history.
