Marleaux is proud to introduce their first semi-acoustic bass guitar, the Contra.
The Contra is made with the same materials as fine violins and bass viols. The result is a dynamic, responsive, and harmonically rich instrument. Hear the true voice of this bass in passive mode – woody and acoustic.
In active mode this inherent voice is enhanced and taken to a new level. The ergonomic design works well on a strap or in your lap.
