Wal is Back – Thanks to no treble for the heads up. The UK Bass manufacturer, known for a very distinctive range of basses, had been working just on back log, but they are now taking new orders again for the first time in a few years. From Wal’s site:
After much activity we are thrilled to announce that Wal is now back in action, with the original specifications and fanatical attention to detail as before. Electric Wood, led by Paul Herman, who worked with Wal and Pete for over 18 years, brings you the quality, the playability, the exotic woods, and the sheer excitement of these beautiful instruments once again.
I’ve not owned a Wal myself, but have had the pleasure of playing quite a few of the models, both fretted and fretless. They are high class instruments with a sound all their own. The workshop is just a few miles down the road from the office here, so I hope to drop in for a visit and give you a fuller update.
