I know what you are thinking – this must be a toy!! Well, this instrument is made with the same care and materials as Marleaux’s “normal” bass guitars. The Soprano plays great, and if you add some effects, just tell your guitarist to take a break. I’ve been plugging into a Roland VGA 7 2×12 guitar combo and music I never thought of is coming out of me. It’s true, an instrument CAN inspire you.
Maybe it is a toy – toys are supposed to be fun. Supplied with a gig bag
