Here's a unique bass. It has been made by the hands of Kostadin Dimitrov luthier in Sofia, Bulgaria.We want to stress the fact that is has been handmade as Kostadin doesn't use any CNC machine or big tools. All his instruments are created by hand using only small tools and a lot of elbow grease. This allows him to control the building process thoroughout. The result is a bass that is just about perfect.
This is the Phen Chabby model and as you can see it is a very compact and attractive design that is really well balanced as well as lightweight.
The body in this bass has been made from air dried sycamore that has been treated by artist Jeff Stratton to create this amazing look without the use of chemicals that might alter the structure of the wood. Amazin!
Apart from being comfortable and easy to play, of course it sounds just great. Two Häussel Sbs pickups yield a traditional sound with absolutely no noise. The bass sounds beautiful in passive mode so you might find yourself using it in that mode most of the time. Of course the active preamp (simple Bass and Treble) is clean and effective so this comes in handy in case you need a bigger sound or some different type of tones. There's a Parallel/Series switch that connects both pickups in that mode giving a fuller and louder sound that's really useful on stage.
To sum up: an amazing bass that's 100% handmade from top notch woods and parts and perfect workmanship. A true work of art that just begs to be played.
