This new brand has only two years old but already looks very promising. These are bass luthier
manufactured at competitive prices with respect to product quality.
Thierry Etienne was the last show of music and sound (September 2006) is the designer and creator of the brand, it sells directly to its intruments musicians. We were able at the salon testing these in all their splendid low variations (4, 5 or 6 strings, fretted or fretless). Beyond their undeniable aesthetic of these are easy to play bass and this in all areas, whether the game to fingers, slap or tapping. They sound terrible with their active electronics or Bartlolini Noll (or Bartolini pickups Bass Culture). A must to recommend to any musician wishing to take the plunge into the single instrument and craft quality without breaking the bank.

krishkou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Everything is already said on previous post except that I have a left handed version, the key is ebony and burl poplar body ..... superb!!
The mache is really fabulous.
The access to acute impecable, although it is not my cup of tea
The weight is light and super bass really well balanced on both knees once cinched.
When the sound ........... a treat, no need to bother it sounds regardless of the setting .... with a special mention for the electronic force that once activated with serious background gives a slight saturation of the most beautiful effect as soon as you attack the strings.
I think that all styles are playable on this instrument, I play things rather Rock and is the top (for my taste).
As for my favorite sonoritées I already said everything in the previous section.
I use it for one month, I regale o)
The report will be excellent value for money (2050 Euros including shipping) after 4 months of waiting (Normally it is 3 months, but there was a microphone problem noticed by Thierry Etienne before delivery .... problem solved since the low was in perfect working condition when I received it).
I would do this choice without any hesitation and I want to send a big thank you to Stephen for his disponibility Thierry, kindness and competence.
I want to say that I'm just a very satisfied customer and that brand really deserves its place in the world of low scale.
