We are using multi–chambered sycamore for the body, producing a sound quality unanimously described asfull-bodied, solid and warm. The shaped top is cut from our classic Italian poplar burl.
The body has a slightly redesigned asymmetrical shape for increased comfort.
The headstock is slightly bigger than previous models, giving a better harmonic design and balance.
The bass uses Manne mini–humbucker blade pickups for a fast, accurate dynamic response.
Having a bass that perform itself so nicely, with strong wood resonance and character, we decided to go back to go further, with the less–is–more concept, choosing a newly designed passive circuit with very unique features.
The circuit consists in two volume controls, a tone control with special features, and two three–position selectors. The two selectors allows the player to use the pickups in three different wiring configurations: series, parallel and split, with three well defined sound ranges. With the pickups in series, a hot, fat low midrange tone is achieved. Parallel gives a more balanced sound and split gives a V–shaped tone with lower basses and transparent trebles.
The two selector works independently, each controlling one of the two pickups, resulting in a very widerange of sound combinations and possibilities.
The new “TriTone” control system we have developed has a special feature.
In the center position (localized a central click dent) the tone is fully open with no effect on the sound. Turned back (counterclockwise) it will work exactly as a passive tone control. Turned forward (clockwise) it will act as a midrange filter, giving a strong apparent midrange for a growl effect.
