The last decade has seen many bass players take on the responsibility of a lead player. The design challenge for the Delta project was to maintain the rich full bottom that forms the band’s foundation and to also cut through without sounding harsh or synthetic. The key to tone and mechanical efficiency is met through construction. The 5 piece Maple and Rosewood neck creates a super rigid platform that refuses to rob the string of its energy. The result is an amazing combination of power, warmth, and articulation. This technique also allows the whole fingerboard to be exposed for easy access. The long top horn and compact headstock make the neck featherlike and energy efficient. For the body, the combination of mahogany sandwiched between figured walnut produces clarity with warmth. This is truly one of the great bass guitars on the market today.
