Marleaux Votan

Powerful. Detailed. Defined.

At first glance, a tradional bass – balanced in design and handling. The finest craftsmanship provides perfect playability.
The Delano Votan pickups – especially designed and manufactured for Marleaux – deliver a growling bottom, crystal clear highs, and punchy mids. The powerful, dynamic tone accents every style. This is the new definition of “power.”
