New Gear: The BITE Booster Bass

Austrian custom bass builder BITE Guitars presents another eye-catching customer bass, the BITE Booster Bass.

How the BITE Booster Bass came to be… “This customer wanted his boost badly, and we’re not talking about the funny leaves. It’s the pickup, folks!”

The Booster Bass features a BITE 2x1000mV humbucker, a humbucker splitter and a 3-way rotary selector for humbucking (series) mode – parallel mode – single coil.

BITE quotes their customer, a proud owner of 20+ basses, writing in, “Our drummer said this was the first time he could clearly hear the bass. I love it!! The pickup output is monstrous. Should have put an 11 on the volume knob! Everyone in my band is really impressed with this bass.”

EU price: 1.300€ with digital artwork, incl. VAT, excl. shipping
US price: ca. 1,740$ with US-eligible spraypainted artwork, incl. shipping (VAT not applicable)
