The Acoustic Bass Redefined. The Standard Has Been Raised.

One of the most acoustically powerful basses ever made, the Balor bass will challenge everything you thought you knew about acoustic basses. The Balor bass is “thunderous” enough to be heard in an unplugged jam session, yet lightweight and ergonomic enough to be your favorite instrument ever. Extensive ergonomic contouring allows the Balor bass to feel like an instrument half its size. With an arm bevel, rib bevel, angled side and a heel-less neck design that gives effortless access to the 24th fret, you may never put it down.

This Balor bass (5-string bass with a high C) is part of the May 2019 Select Series — a collection of instruments with custom features hand selected each month by Alistair Hay. This guitar features a unique black dyed Birdseye Maple veneer with matching black carbon back and sides.

All the guitars in this month’s select series feature Gotoh 510 tuners and the LR-Baggs Element pickup system.

Description

After 15 years of developing the art of acoustic basses, we set out to not only redesign, but reimagine what an acoustic bass guitar should be. We are proud to finally introduce the Balor.

Physics implies acoustic basses need to be large in order to create low frequencies loud enough to be heard at a useable acoustic volume, so we developed a completely new ergonomic shape that is 30 percent larger than our previous model, yet feels more comfortable to play.

We have finally created the first acoustic bass with enough low, thunderous volume and projection to excel as an acoustic instrument, loud enough to be heard in an unplugged jam session, yet lightweight and ergonomic enough to be your favorite instrument ever.

This 5-string fretless Balor bass with a high C is part of the monthly edition of the Emerald Custom Shop Select Series — a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a unique black dyed Birdseye Maple veneer with a matching black carbon back and sides.

The Balor Select Series has full gloss finish on all surfaces, cosmic black Gotoh 510 tuners, and an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up, and comes with a custom-padded Emerald Guitars gig bag.

NOTE: B to G bass tuning setup is available
