Upright Bass STILO

The STILO Bass is suitable for Pop/Rock music due to its decisive and powerful sound.

Also playable with the bow thanks to an appropriate curvature of the bridge, it shows its maximum performance in pizzicato.

The soundboard setting provides a string action similar to that of an electric bass, which makes it particularly easy to play.

Furthermore, the bridge height can be adjusted from the back of the instrument.

Even more than the RES bass, the STILO is versatile in terms of its range of accessories. It can be played on a tripod (light or heavy). Its neck can be smooth or have the 4th-position reference. It can also be played with the endpin in double bassmode. It can be played with adjustable right and left shoulders (see RES).

All components are modular and can be purchased separately at any time.
