Marleaux Soprano

Puts the fun into playing!

An unusual fun way to play is what you get from this boutique super-short scale bass with a 57 cm (22.44″) scale. The sound radiates a powerful piano string likeness – ever responsive to the nuances of a Player, punches through with a rich sustain to stand in front of the mix.
An octaver helps when necessary for filling out the sound in an ensemble. Despite the diminutive appearance, you can really pull out a depth of sound without dirtying the bass’s natural clarity.
