About This Item

Franz Hoffmann Prelude Bass

The perfect bass for that serious student in your household - excellent performance, easy playability, and a bright sounding tone - at a value price! This bass is made of fine laminates which have been carefully dried and aged. This process ensures durability which is critical in a large instrument. A beautiful veneer is then applied over the surface of the wood. Unlike many lesser basses, the Prelude has a sturdy ebony fingerboard, an adjustable bridge, and is set-up with Helicore strings. Made in China and set-up in Ann Arbor.
