Krutz 500-Series Bass
Advanced construction, higher flame.
Krutz 500-series instruments raise the bar for step-up level instruments. They are carefully constructed to Krutz's specifications in their affiliated shop in Beijing and all set-up in their Kansas City workshop. Krutz craftsmen travel to Beijing regularly to control quality. This ensures a fine appearance, warm sound and easy playability, even in fractional sizes. Upon arrival at Krutz's Kansas City workshop, they are given a professional set-up by their craftsmen. Krutz 500-series instruments produce a higher tonal quality at a more competitive price.
