|The pleasure of a comfortable fretboard and a dynamically rich sound to emphasise every accent and inflection|
The exotic wood used, as well as the seasoning and varnishing, provide excellent acoustics. The neck, making up the central part of the body (neck-thru body), consists of 5 to 7 sections of highly selected types of wood, guaranteeing absolute non-deformability.
Strengthened by an inner graphite frame, Laurus necks are extremely easy to hold thanks to their craftwork and particular asymmetrical moulding. They also incorporate a new double-acting truss-rod system, allowing millimetric adjustment, both in convexity and concavity.
The electronic components fitted to Laurus bass guitars are always top quality, in order to faithfully reproduce all the sustain and the series of harmonics created by the instrument, with great timbre versatility of a high professional level. The absence of background noise and output impedance provide an excellent signal for amplifiers, mixers and recording.
Available with 4, 5 and 6 strings, fretted or fretless.
The two communicating tone chambers housed inside the body are intended to enhance mid and treble-mid frequencies, and to make the instrument increasingly sensitive to vibration, remarkably speeding up the sustain attack.
