The Contra from Gerald Marleaux is , in my opinion , an extraordinary bass.
- Maple body
- Spruce top
- Maple neck , 3 piece, 34″ scale, 24 frets
- Ebony fret board and tuner buttons
- Delano humbuckers
- Marleaux V2 two band preamp with active/passive and passive tone control
- Gig bag
I believe this bass’ voice comes from the semi-acoustic body construction and the unique pickup placement.
The tone is big and rich in passive mode – passive allows you to hear the bass’ inherent voice – active takes this great voice to another level.
If I say any more I might be accused of engaging in hype. Anyway, I would much prefer to hear what YOU think.
IF you are in the market for something special, IF you think this bass may be it , I urge you to play this bass. This is the only way to really “know” this instrument.
Please call to arrange your audition.
