One Of A Kind.

In here you'll find instruments that are pretty unique. That's quite a feat for a MüB. Still, sometimes we build one instrument on a hunch or an order takes an unexpected turn and we found ourselves staring at a very unique instrument both aesthetically and tone-wise. We don't do this often or regularly. So, if you see something you like, go ahead and grab it. We might never build it again.

This  Special Edition X3M sports a neck-through construction and was entirely hand-painted and signed by Maurizio. The whole instrument is finished in satin lacquer. Optional MüB-B custom string set, discounted to $90.

"The name Helvo has a funny origin. When the all-blueish artwork was finished I felt that something was still missing and added a little red brush stroke. Almost immediately Iit reminded me of the painting Helvoetsluys by JMW Turner and the story behind - if you're not familiar with it just google the name of the painting. I suppose my subconscious wanted to pay homage to the great painter".               Maurizio

G5 Samarkand 2013-2023 $4300
 

I built the original G5 Samarkand in 2013. Last year I had the opportunity to buy it back and decided to upgrade it to the highest level of craft and creativity we have achieved in the ten years since it sold. The bass was disassembled, each part sanded back to bare wood, reshaped, modified, upgraded. We replaced the old ebony fretboard with a new one, added a Macassar ebony back laminate, replaced headstock plates with new ones, added oval MOP inlays, matching olive/wenge knobs. We designed custom parts specifically for the Samarkand, envisioned creative solutions where we had to. Replaced the old bridge with a new one, signed by me. The Samarkand is now at the very pinnacle of what we can offer and I am proud - albeit a bit sad - to offer it to you. yet again.

This bass sound tight, articulate, very slightly compressed, with big lows, even mids and a sparkling top end. It's a versatile, expressive instrument. We have yet to find a combination of playing style and preamp setting that didn't sound great. We can swap preamp if desired. 
ps: A coil tap would make this bass perfect.
