THE ASHBORY BASS
FROM THE BASS CENTRE • LONDON • ENGLAND
In 1985, Englishmen Alun Ashworth-Jones and Nigel Thornbory created the original Ashbory Bass, a revolutionary 18" scale, silicon-rubber strung instrument with a piezo-electric transducer that, when amplified, produced a low, resonant bass tone that emulated a plucked double bass with astonishing clarity and accuracy.
In its second incarnation, Ashbory worked with The Bass Centre to create a version with an ergonomic body shape influenced by the Steinberger 'stick' basses of the day. These instruments instantly found favour with international players and recording artists including Tony Levin and Doug Wimbish.
Now, 30 years on, The Bass Centre is pleased to announce a brand new generation of the Ashbory brand, featuring a travel-ready choice of solid body and bass uke style instruments - defiantly small in stature but built to deliver big crisp, expansive bass tone.
