Marleaux Bass Review in Guitar & Bass Magazine

Marleaux Bass Review in Guitar & Bass Magazine
Great review from Guitar & Bass Magazine for Marleaux Consat Custom Bass

We at Promenade Music have been supplying the excellent handmade in Germany basses by Marleaux for nearly 3 years now. Our resident bass guru, Gary has long been an avid fan of them, and has even been to Germany to visit Gerald Marleaux at his workshop and see them being made. More importantly, he's played 'em all!

Guitar & Bass Magazine have just reviewed the Marleux Consat Custom 4-String bass in the March 2009 (Vol 20 No 4) and given it a great review, including 19 out of 20 for both Build Quality and Playability.

Here's a couple of choice quotes from the review:

'The Marleaux's top is a simply beautiful slab of olive ash with a rich grain pattern that's all crashing waves and eddies'

'The neck pickup has a joyously rabid snarl that makes the Consat superb for aggressive rock, old-school soul or funk'
