Maruszczyk is one of the brands that we've been exclusive dealers for in Spain for a longer time. We've always loved these instruments and it is great to see that they do not just sit on their laurels but keep improving and growing. Every year we get a lot of new Maruszczyk basses and it is great to see that the quality and number of options just keep improving but the price tag remains incredibly affordable.
Adrian Maruszczyk is a professional bassplayer and a true visionary when it comes to bass designing. The headquarters of his brand are in Aldenhoven, Germany. Maruszczyk's moto is "From Player to Player" and it basically means that they are bassplayers who really understand what bassplayers need and can react to those needs really fast. Just check Public Peace's Youtube channel and you'll find Adrian himself doing most of the demos of his basses. We love this personal approach.
The basses are built in a small factory in Poland and Adrian Maruszczyk is really on top of the whole production system. For him it is simple: "if my name is on the bass, it has to be good".
Right now these instruments are already considered as some of the best European made basses.
What other brands call "Custom Shop", "Custom Built", "Masterbuilt", etc., means just standard at Maruszczyk basses. This means you won't be charged extra money just because a paticular component of piece of wood is a bit different. You just pay what you get for, We love this honest attitude. Also each bass is made to order, meaning they are actually all Custom Shop Basses. No standard series here or runds of dozens of similar instruments. In short: these are Custom Shop basses at Standard series pricing.
PLEASE NOTE: When you order a new Maruszczyk bass you have two options:
1.- Order the instrument you see in our webshop (immediate delivery)
2.- Order a custom bass from us. We'll guide you through the whole process and will give you a quote of the bass with the specs you need. We ask for a 30% downpayment to start the building process. The balance due needs to be paid when the bass is finished and prior to shipping it to you. You can use Public Peace's configurator to get an idea of the options and pricing of your bass but this configurator doesn't show all the options so we recommend you contact us for advice. Also we've ordered dozens of Maruszczyk basses over the last few years so we are well acquainted with the different options and you can benefit from our professional advice. Just send us an email and we'll help you out. Lead time is 10-12 weeks once the firm is order.
This is the Frog model (5 string). It is an original design and in this case it comes with a set neck so you get great sustain as well as unrestricted access up to te 24th fret.
We ordered it with two Delano SBC5 pickups and they sound just great. Full bodied and clear with zero noise. There are two Single-Series-Parallel switches as well as an excellent Delano 3 band preamp so the number of great sounds on tap is just awesome.
The gorgeous laurel top with matching headstock and ebony fingerboard complete this great looking, playing and sounding bass.
The low B is a clear example of how they should always be: plenty of volume and definition. This is actually the norm in 5 string Maruszczyk basses.
Beieve us, you are not going to find a better bass in this price range.
Test it and you'll be hooked. Order it today and you won't look back.
