Coming soon...A six-string addition to the Dulake series (On sale from October 2019)

 

Our original "Dulake Series" instruments are modern basses that fit well into a broad range of genres and playing styles.

The outstanding feature of the new six-string is that it sounds extremely well balanced from the lowest bass to the highest treble notes - all the while retaining great playability.  Due to the shape of the neck and the good body balance, this is an instrument that will be easy to play even for bassists who mainly play on 4-string instruments.


*The image shown above is from a prototype. The finished design and specification may differ slightly.

 

BODY & NECK
● To obtain a rich and clear sonic response, we use mahogany in both the body and the neck of this bass. This material also has the appropriate characteristics to give the bass a good balance for comfortable playing.

● The neck is reinforced with KTS (titanium) bars in the upper register to enhance stability, and to further bring out the sound of the bass.

● An updated design of both the body and headstock, to accommodate the 6th string. 

 

STRING SPACING
The string spacing at the bridge is 18mm, and the bridge is made by Gotoh (model number 303BO6). We have adopted this spacing to make the 6-string instrument easily playable for 4- and 5-string players.


CONTROL
We have designed an original 3-band EQ (Treble/ Mid/ Bass) to allow for on-board tone shaping, and adjustment of balance between high and low pitched strings. 

 

 PICKUPS
We have developed a custom humbucker pickup for this model, with the specific aim to give an even response from across all the strings, from low-B up to high-C.
