Crafting high-quality bass guitars since 1989, Atelier Z has established quite a popular reputation among bass players around the world. Using a combination of expertly-cured ash and maple, Atelier Z constructs basses that are ergonomic, well-balanced, lightweight and articulate. 

The tonal palette of these basses spans the entire spectrum, and, regardless of genre, you’ll find them versatile enough to dial in the appropriate tone. That’s due, in no small part, to Atelier Z’s Original preamp, which comes standard on their instruments.
