Where others already fail the STOLL Acoustic Bass just gets into gear. Unusual volume and a well-designed interior life make this instrument a specialty in the realm of the acoustic bass.
A precise tone with a powerful force reminds the listener strongly of a double-bass. So it is sometimes affectionately called "the Double Bass to put on." With this bass you will be seen and heard!
With a body width of 530 mm, a depth of 142 mm (at the widest point) and a scale length of 864 mm, the Legendary Acoustic Bass stands out clearly from its competitors. Anyone considering the laws of acoustics, must come to the same conclusions as we did: Only a large sound box is able to effect a sonorous and vibrant sound. Consequently the Legendary Acoustic Bass can stand its ground unplugged in an acoustic ensemble.
Even small people can handle the bass by taking the recommended posture. When standing, the position can be easily adjusted by raising or lowering the neck. When sitting the body is placed between the legs, with the upper bout resting on the left knee.
In contrast to the large body the neck was designed extremely slim. Its width of 42mm (4-string) allows for comfortable handling. The Legendary Acoustic Bass is equipped with Elixir Nanoweb Medium Long Scale electric bass strings, which add up to the fat double-bass sound.
For interaction with amplified instruments we recommend the Element pickup by L.R. Baggs. This way, the Legendary Acoustic Bass will meet every demand, be it unplugged or plugged be it a Bossanova duo, Klezmer ensemble, bluegrass band, classical ensemble, jazz combo, folk band, be it at the campfire or in the studio with a microphone or wherever else reasonable acoustic bass sound is required.

1 thought on “The Legendary Acoustic Bass”
Everybody seriously interested in an acoustic bass guitar (AGB) should have a deeper look at this one. I own mine now for over 10 years and the already awesome sound develops from day to day like an old cello. By far one of the best or even the best AGBs on the market. Why?
Responsiveness: Huge dynamic range and fantastic responsiveness of the soundboard, the nitrocellulose finish allows the instrument to breath.
Volume: Volume is not everything, but it helps a lot to empower the low mid frequencies - you can feel the resonance.
Intonation: Changing from thick nylon wrapped strings to nylon core strings is not a problem with a floating bridge.
Lightweight: About 2.8 kg is less than the most smaller sized AGBs.
Balance: Take your hands off when the instrument is put on with a strap and the headstock will not dive down.
Thank you for such an amazing and elaborate instrument.
