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.
The new Premier Guitar issue is on the stands right now. We’re very thankful to the magazine and reviewer Steve Cook for including the Super P 4 in their picks for “Best Gear of 2013″, saying the sonic capabilities are “downright incredible”.
These long awaited nickel strings sound and feel amazing. They have the best tension balance and greatest clarity and harmonic purity of any string we’ve tried. The tension is slightly heavier than our old Stainless strings so that you can dig in more too. Available now in our webstore.
FD3 pickups are a big part of our sound and success. Carey Nordstrand and his team have been working with us to make them available in sizes and string spacings that will fit standard basses. We’ve tested the prototype and it ROCKS!
Alessandro Stellano’s a gifted Jazz player but obviously likes to rock too! Here’s a video of their new single “Through Space and Time”. It’s a great song. I’m going to be humming the hooks all day now.
If you’re in London you can check them out at and Nambucca and The Roundhouse (ironically, at least to me – just down the road from the club called Dingwall’s . Both gigs are on Nov 17th.
This Super P was custom spec’d by our good friend and customer Mark Lumpkin down in Tyler, Texas. What I like about this bass is that it flat-out grabs your attention. Like it or not, most of the people in an audience are not musicians and couldn’t care less if your bass is older than their date or a relic job made to look that way. I’m pretty sure they’ll care about this bass though.
