Aquilina 5-String Bass at The Monterey Music Store

Posted on January 29th, 2019 by The Monterey Music Store

This just arrived at The Monterey Music Store directly from France: an Aquilina 5-string bass! Visit us at 425 Alvarado Street in Old Monterey and check it out.

Each model of Aquilina bass has been crafted according to a specific sound experience - from the most “vintage” to the most sophisticated design - with a desire to optimize the instrument and its sound. Homemade truss rod using steel and carbon, acoustic chamber under the bridge, special finish of the keys to homogenize the spectrum and eliminate ghost notes, ergonomics analysis to determine neck and body assembly, angle, etc. These small details make all the difference and give the Aquilina bass an exceptional playability and harmonic richness.
