Marleaux Contra



dynamic. responsive. harmonically rich.



We are proud to introduce our first semi-acoustic bass guitar, the Contra.  The Contra is made with the same materials as fine violins and bass viols. The result is a dynamic, responsive, and harmonically rich instrument.

Hear the true voice of this bass in passive mode - woody and acoustic.  In active mode this inherent voice is enhanced and taken to a new level. The ergonomic design works well on a strap or in your lap.
