Adler SubContra Bass
The SubContra Bass is virtually a new breed of instrument. Created by Adler Guitars artist Jauqo III-X , this instrument allows a four-string player to obtain notes lower than most Extended Range Basses (ERB). With this kind of instrument there is one main advantage over the ERBs – you can get your extra range while keeping the feel of your 4-string!
Unfortunately, these strings require special electronics to reproduce their respective frequencies. Our fretted version has a specially voiced Bartolini pickup and preamp system to allow for the basses true sound to come through. Our fretless version has special prototype Villex pickups, which do a wonderful job of reproducing the strings passively. The hardware is made by Hipshot as the bridge is shaped in their "A”"style and the tuners are of their "Ultralite" variety.
