A wish has come true. We teamed up with our friend Tom Germann from Torillo Basses and designed a bass together. Tom came to me with the idea of a joint bass model in 2020 and in 2021 we started to put our project into action.

We had set ourselves the goal of designing a handmade instrument that in terms of craftsmanship, precision, sound and the quality of its components need not fear being compared with instruments of the high-end category.

 As bassists with years of live experience, we wanted to build a true „players“ instrument. Soundwise as universally applicable and reliable as possible. The challenge: The bass should be affordable for everyone. 

 After consistently focusing on the „elemental“ in the designs, we achieved our goal and are more than satisfied with the result.

As an expert Master Builder at international level, Tom builds each Element with precision craftsmanship. With his skill and eye for detail, each Element is a master instrument in tone and craftsmanship.

The Element is exactly the bass we envisioned. Completely made by hand – even pickups and the preamp were handbuilt in Germany, one by one. 

Features

Reliability of the individual parts is a major factor in the Element. We decided to use only those products that we have learned to appreciate in our years as musicians.

For us, this includes the durable neck made of Quartersawn Maple, as well as the bridge from Hipshot USA or the tuners from Gotoh Japan.

We were able to win over a small team of bass-playing electronics enthusiasts from Nuremberg for the electronics, who liked our project. They designed a preamp for us according to our ideas, which is now used in the Element. Handmade in Germany.

manufacturing

Whether already built or made to order, each element is unique. The production is always „on demand“, it is never produced on stock.  Due to this way of working, it is possible to perfectly monitor the construction process and ensure impeccable quality.

With the Element, we have designed and constructed an instrument that is new from the ground up. It is not another copy or remake, it is a unique model with its own new design and optimized construction.
