The Sheldon D'Silva Signature MüB-G6 Triquetra.
This absolute beauty is the result of over a year of creative brainstorm with bassist extraordinaire Sheldon D'Silva. A year spent redesigning the G Single Cut from the ground up, in the quest for the bass of a lifetime.
Sheldon's percussive approach to bass playing, his soulful finger style phrasing, rich chordal work, blistering fast slap technique inspired an instrument unlike any other. The MüB-G SDS is articulated, snappy, damn fast and heartbreaking beautiful. Its voice ranges from piano-like to visceral growl and everything in between.
Each and every detail in this bass is an aesthetic, ergonomic and tonal statement. The Triquetra is pretty light for a six stringer and very well balanced thanks to a compact headstock. The offset vertical center line of the bass makes this instrument very comfortable to play sitting. The two EMG single coil pick ups are positioned for extra bottom and snap.
In Sheldon's own words:
"The Triquetra is a symbol of the supreme trinity and the unity of the mind, body and spirit. Combining Intelligence, Fine Craftsmanship and Passion we build this instrument to bond and mature with the musician, to transcend a disciple into a master. Its transparency, translates your true sound and personality. Don't believe me? Play it and hear the sound of evolution!"
