Tino Tedesco Basses - Instrumentdesign


I sincerely appreciate your interest in TinoTedesco basses!


Our efforts in the last couple of years have been directed towards experimenting with neck – body wood combinations, various scales, headstock sizes, overall weight of the instruments, electronics, pickups, fret size and string size. In my honest opinion, I think that with our instruments we have achieved a level of precision, playability, comfort and sound concept that is unseen in other comparable instruments.

We are extremely proud of our 5 string basses in particular as they have a great tonal authority right down to the low B without compromising pitch, clarity and punch. We use only the absolute best quality components to build our instruments and are convinced that, if well cared for, they will last a lifetime.

We have always strived to build a tool for the dedicated musician that makes him or her immediately feel at ease. Our instruments are “ready for work” so to say...
