Dear Customers, dear Friends!

We have just uploaded the new NAMM Show instruments! Click here for pictures:


This year I'm very happy to present "The X-Men" Concept! A very long X-Men movie night last winter inspired me to create this bass! Beside other one of a kind instruments, you can see "The X-Men" at the upcoming NAMM Show in Anaheim California next week, from January 23rd to 26th.

Visit me in Hall C at Booth #4178.

I also want to introduce you to my new OMAKASE blind order possibility. Ever ordered an instrument without having an idea what you get at the end? Check out OMAKASE ordering here:


All the best and talk to you soon!
