Marleaux Betra

Direct tone, multi-faceted sound, best playability.

With the Marleaux Betra the first thing you notice is the ergonomic design. No two basses are the same. The customer selects the type of wood. From these beginnings, a boutique and unique instrument is made with the finest craftsmanship and provides a multi-faceted sound and the
best playability.

The bass cuts through with a direct tone that can be pulled from every position of the fretboard. From the thundering bottom to the crystal clear highs.
