Marleaux Votan XS

Growling. Defined. Transparent

At first site this bass looks traditional with a balanced design. The excellent craftsmanship allows for a perfect playing experience on a thin and ‘fast’ neck. The instrument is build very light and has a dynamic style.

The Delano JSBC-Pickups produce growling bass frequencies, a powerful midrange and a clear high spectrum. The traditional placement of the pickups give the Votan XS a very unique and defined sound. We redefined the tradition in a brand new instrument!
