This is our most popular instrument.
The back, sides, and neck are made from beautifully flamed Big Leaf maple, the top is select spruce, and the fingerboard as well as other trim is made from ebony processed in Germany.
German-made tuning machines, a rich, dark varnish, and a padded cover complete the package for a professional looking instrument that is appropriate for high school and college students as well as working musicians needing a good bass at a great price. <br><br>
The sound is something to brag about too, with more sound in the low register than good laminated basses, and a more sophisticated midrange sound, characteristic of a well-graduated spruce top. May be either gamba shaped or violin cornered.
Setup is key to making each bass play easily and sound its best. Lemur Music’s painstaking setup requires 12 to 15 hours of undivided attention in our dedicated workshop. There are also over $400 of parts replaced with top quality stock. It is easy to see that bass setup requires a specialist like Lemur Music, and that this work is conservatively valued at $700. Currently all of this is included in the price of the instrument. <br>
