“Tonal complexity and raw power… extremely comfortable… I won my audition with your bass… your instrument is a joy to play…”

I chose a Nick Lloyd bass because I needed something that I could fly with and be practical to play with ease in the high register… as I love to play solo contemporary repertoire. The 40.5″ string length and sloped-shoulder model works wonders for me. I was immediately satisfied with the sound when I first picked up the bass, and now that the instrument is a little over a year old the sound has really opened up and the bass resonates beautifully. – Kathryn Schulmeister
