Our goal is simple: We want to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up every time you play a Dingwall
For our team of craftspeople, building instruments is the most fascinating and fulfilling experience imaginable. It is the meeting place between the technical world of physics and engineering and the emotional world of soul and passion. Instruments from centuries ago are today still cherished, passed on from generation to generation. We believe that the instruments we build will share the same legacy. Because of this, we build every instrument with passion and reverence.
I’ll admit, I’m stoked they did a nice review on our Super P in the current issue of ibass magazine. What really blows my mind though is the user experience ibass magazine provides. Tablet versions of magazines have improved a lot lately but ibass has taken things to a new level. They’ve done a brilliant job of enhancing traditional magazine style content with video.

The issues are very reasonably priced. The new issue has a great interview with Mark King. Check it out.

Musikmesse is this week. Barry and I will sadly not be in attendance but we made sure to send over some KICKING new basses. The Super P 4’s will be well represented with a 3-tone and a Fiesta Red. Both are passive and both feature the latest version of our tone-fusion circuit which is both smoother and quieter sounding. There’s a really nice Sklar 5 in Chrome Blue. A stunning Z3 (if I do say so myself) spalted maple top with a smokey trans Blackburst finish. There are two ABI 5’s with the 3X pickup array. Both have Wenge necks – one with a wenge fretboard and one with maple for a cool reverse look. The other ABI has a really deep Purple (no relation) to Blackburst finish that’s pretty mesmerizing. The final bass is unique. It’s an ABII with a double top combination similar to a Prima Artist. The walnut burl top and flame maple contrast layer are repeated on the back to make this bass even more special. This is a first for an ABII. It also features a wenge neck and fingerboard which really makes the ABII sing.
If you’re attending the show, please stop by the Ahead Music booth Hall 4.0 Booth H40 for a look.
Neil Murray is getting a killer tone out of his custom ABI 4-string in the new Snakecharmer video. If you’re a fan of classic rock, I think you’ll really enjoy what these guys are doing. With members of Whitesnake, Ozzy, Wishbone Ash and more its no wonder that they really know how to craft great songs.
