Acoustibass

Electric Bass

All our bass necks are made of laminate and maple wings. Necks are one of our original tone recipe to get the most from a passive sound, punchy and with perfect attack.

This is a semi-hollow instrument, with an acoustic chamber under the bridge. The strings pass through the body and then over a saddle with a Piezo element. Then we added a magnetic pick-up in the bridge position that adds a new mellow tone. A very simple circuit, volume balance and tone, gives a broad spectrum of sounds, going from a dark, woody double bass sound, to a crisp biting sound. An unusual Bass response with character and originality.

There is a simple beauty about this bass that is difficult to fully appreciate until you see it in the flesh. The swallow neck profile is both comfortable and pratical for this five-stringer and the fretboard feels extra smooth beneath the fingers. The Acoustibass covers the Pino Palladino and Jaco Pastorius distinctive sounds well and a lot more besides thanks to the almost double bass-sounding acoustic tone wich, of course, isn’t usually associated with a solid body bass. If you want something a little out of the ordinary, this bass has an elegance and beauty that almost defines it as an art form…. This Acoustibass boasts a gloriously rich range of tones from pleasingly simple layout.

L’ Acoustibass Manne è veramente quello che dice il suo nome: il carattere è molto acustico, però con il doppio sistema di pickup si puo avere sia suoni tipo contrabasso sia il suono tipo nathan East distinto rotondo e asciutto.
Se pensate di comprare una fretless dovete assolutamente considerare questo basso italiano. L’ Acoustibass ha un suono perfetto anche per il suono staccato a la jaco pastorius! Manne Acostibass e un basso interessantissimo. Sembra veramente essere nato fretless per le sue qualità acustiche definite! La dinamicha dell acoustibass e incredibile! Non ho mai sentito un suono cosi vivo da un basso elettrico!
