Come promesso le novità non mancano. Dopo le nuove finiture disponibili è la volta della nuova linea di bassi Supertone disponibile a 4 o 5 corde nata in stretta collaborazione con uno dei più talentuosi bassisti italiani, Lello Somma. Due le versioni, la standard e la “Lello Somma signature”, un basso che racchiude in se di base tre suoni famosi accuratamente riprodotti ma le sfumature in mezzo sono davvero tante. Un anno e mezzo di lavoro tra prototipizzazione e customizzazione ma vi assicuro che vale la pena provarlo, tutto questo sempre al Guitar Show di Padova il prossimo 20 maggio! Non mancate!!!

A qualcuno piace “plekkato”?

Da oggi su tutti i bassi Camarota sarà implementato il servizio di rettifica dei tasti computerizzata mediante il sistema Plek.

Cos’è Plek: Plek è un rivoluzionario sistema per ottenere il più alto grado di suonabilità e di customizzazione del vostro strumento, un formidabile strumento di analisi e diagnostica. Oltre alla precisione al centesimo di millimetro, Plek è unico per la possibilità di analizzare lo strumento con le corde montate e fornire informazioni sul reale assetto del basso consentendo precisione e tolleranze difficili da eguagliare manualmente.
L’utilizzo di Plek è determinante in tutti gli aspetti di un set-up. I notevoli vantaggi sono tanti, tra cui suonabilità perfetta, intonazione perfetta per tutti i tasti, aumento sonoro e ricchezza di armoniche dello strumento, allungamento della vita dei tasti.

Tutto questo e molte altre novità in cantiere prendono vita al laboratorio Camarota!
