After 15 years of developing the art of acoustic bass we set about not just redesigning, but reimagining what an acoustic bass guitar should be and now we are proud to bring to you Balor.
Physics implies that an acoustic bass should be large to properly create low frequencies at a useable acoustic volume. So we have developed a completely new ergonomic shape that is 30 per cent larger than our previous model, yet feels more comfortable to play.
Finally, we have created an acoustic bass with gut-rumbling low frequencies produced at a volume loud enough to compete in any acoustic jam session.
