the Purist bass

t h e  P u r i s t  b a s s

combining the best of the past and the future

The all new bass, the Purist, has been a three year work in progress combining the lightness, resonance and growl from those classic 60´s basses but with more definition and better bottom en but still that "analogue" sweetness. If you have searched for the right custom made bass but often have striked out because of that often "stiff" feel and sound, this bass is THE ONE you must check out! The neck has that classic feel, not too thin, 41 mm wide at nut giving it a slightly "chunky" but still fast feel. Really simple controls on the single pickup model: stacked vol/tone and a three way switch for the QUAD pickup. No battery, no preamp, just high end passive electronics giving you THAT sound and feel you have been looking for…

Much development made with the right density and stiffness of the Khaya body with chambered compartments, and to the right thickness of the bookmatched mahogany top to get that perfect balance between clarity and definition against that soft plush core sounds. Making sure your sound gets in the mix in that magical way but never get mushy in the bottom end department.. Better images and soundclips coming soon!
