Caparison Announces the Dellinger Bass
A boutique 4-string loaded with Fishman Fluence pickups.
Japan (June 26, 2019) -- The new Caparison 2019 Dellinger Bass is instantly familiar but at the same time much improved. Now complete with the revolutionary Fishman Fluence Multi-Voiced pickup system this means that as well as giving you the legendary and unsurpassed rock performance that the Dellinger is famous for, it can now also deliver genuine and effortless jazz and funk tones – plus any other mood or any other style that you care to dial in!
The Fishman Fluence Bass Soapbar pickup system produces multiple timbres and sounds, each untethered from the other. Original and totally re-imagined, Fluence Multi-Voice pickups for electric bass are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups, revealing pure, uncorrupted bass tone. Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups can be split for single coil operation with a Jazz Bass string window. Also, the included Treble and Bass controls can be used to further expand the tonal palette. Voicings for the Fluence Bass pickups were created to offer players a wide palette of sounds that cover all playing styles. Plus, of course, Caparison has fitted the Fishman USB rechargeable battery pack as standard.
Added to this we have also included the option of through body or bridge stringing, and talking of bridges, the Dellinger Bass has an improved Gotoh 303SJ-4 fitted – to give more sustain and resonance to your sound.
The neck is faster and more playable than ever, the ebony fret board is sheer perfection and the action super, super low. The addition of titanium rods within the length of the neck ensures that the Dellinger Bass has a stability that can be relied upon night after night whatever the conditions.
The Dellinger Bass is the culmination of years of research, improvements and upgrades. The Caparison mantra of ultimate playability, functional simplicity and the quest for perfection are very self-evident in this new version of the classic Dellinger bass. It is so much more than the sum of its parts, it is built to inspire.
The 4 string Caparison Dellinger Bass is priced at $3,199 (Europe €3,339).
