The MüB Miezo
The Miezo completes our Über-Compact range. 'Miezo' means 'half' in Maurizio's Southern Italian dialect and the Miezo is just that: two full octaves in half the scale length. Basically, think of the Miezo's zero fret as the 12th fret of a standard bass so standard tuning is one octave higher than your long scale bass. Miezo is designed to fit within airline size allowance for hand carry baggage and it comes with a slick, handy gig bag.
You can use your standard strings and clip the excess at the anchor behind the mini-headstock. And it's very easy to do.
Ergonomics. This is one of the features that sets the Miezo apart from competition, as it was designed to recreate the authentic feel of a standard bass. Full body size, contours, contact points, balance, left and right hand feel - either strapped on or sit, the Miezo instantly feels right. What works on your full scale bass works on your Miezo and vice versa. After all, the best instrument is one that adapts to the player and not the other way around.
Tone. The Miezo features a unique voice, with amazing resonance and bell-like clarity that's perfect for chords and arpeggio. The added string tightness also lends itself well to experimenting with open tuning and string gauge. You could drop the tuning by one whole step strings still feels tight enough.
Looks. When design focuses on human qualities, like ergonomics and playability, something beautiful happens: shapes become organic, look familiar, inviting, almost an extension of our body. This principle has guided our design this far. The Miezo is simply its latest incarnation.
MüB's own string anchor design is machined out of bell quality brass and it's the same we use on our high end headless Custom-Fit basses. Brass bridge and tuner are made in Germany by ETS.
