NBE Corp. of the Czech Republic, owner and manufacturer of Esh bass guitars, has relaunched this iconic European brand and has now opened a North American sales channel.
The Esh bass guitar brand is known for its innovative EshtronicsTM on-board electronics package as well as edgy and unique body stylings. Esh models available are the Stinger, Various, Sovereign and Poseidon. Models are available in both bolt on and neck thru. North American basses will have a choice of maple or ebony fingerboards. All models are available in 4 string and 5 string configurations.
Esh basses will especially appeal to hard rock/metal bassists. The late Peter Steele of the band Type O Negative was a long time endorser and exclusive user of the Stinger I bass. The Stinger II with its neck-thru construction and EshtronicsTM package will also appeal to slap style bassists looking for clean, clear, percussive tones.
“Esh has been an iconic European brand for over 20 years. The quality of the new Esh basses and the innovative electronics package not found on any other instrument truly set them apart,” says Tom Richards, North American director for NBE Corp. and 35 year professional and touring bassist. “The tonal capability and smooth, fast, easy playability of all the Esh basses are truly something new to the bass community in the US and Canada.”
