MB RB KILIMANJARO F1 5 OLIV

Product code: MBB146072I

Know as the highest peak in Africa, the Kilimanjaro was designed and improved step by step with Richard Bonauntil we came to the final result that satisfied at 100% Richard, Marco and any bass player who had the chance to try the very first samples we made. We’re really proud of this amazing instrument, a lute manufactured bass that includes all our passion and experience.

Our attitude of exploring new solutions led us to select native wood such as the Val di Fiemme Spruce, which was used for centuries by master luthiers to produce classical bowed instruments thanks to its elasticity and unique resonance and then combined it with a beautiful Abruzzo Olive top*.

 

 

MADE IN ITALY

NOTE:
OUR BASSES ARE UNIQUE PIECES, SO WOOD ESSENCE CHOICE AND ANY OTHER DIFFERENCE IS DUE TO OUR ARTISAN PROCESS WHICH REFERS TO ITALIAN LUTEMAKING TRADITION AND TO THE CONSTANT IMPROVEMENTS WE BRING TO OUR PRODUCTS.

ELECTRONIC

All Marco’s and Markbass experience on bass TONE has been condensed on this outstanding electronic circuit, simple, intuitive and effective even on extreme settings. Controls are VOLUME/VOLUME/TONE (with an active/passive switch on Tone) letting an incredible pickups blending capability compared to a regular Blend control and with active BASS/MID/TREBLE…so you’re not gonna have resounding bass or blowing treble. The frequency values have been chosen to offer a wide range of tones that you can use on any setting. The TONE control (working also in the passive mode) has been defined by Richard as the “G Point” because of its accurate efficacy letting to move from smooth and warm tones to bright and hi-fi ones, everything in a one of a kind “sensual” way.
