A fretless bass is a different instrument. It is played differently, with more attention to nuances and subtleties, with fewer boundaries and a more creative mindset.
Which is exactly what the MüB-F wants to be, uncompromisingly designed to be only fretless.
Playing the MüB-F is something you might have never experienced before. Taking out of the equation the ever changing gap under the strings on a standard fretless bass, what's left is an even, consistent plucking feel. String tightness at the various plucking positions becomes the only feedback your right hand fingers receive from the bass. Every MüB is extremely responsive, its tone articulate, with shotgun attack and seemingly ∞ sustain. The MüB-F adds to that what a fretless needs - amazing resonance.
Quite a few little design (r)evolutions had to happen for all this to work. Click on the pictures below for more info and large pictures.
Standard tuners and bridge by Hipshot are also available and so is the MüB/ETS headless system.
Now, a MüB will always be exactly what you need it to be, so any other preamp can be installed with all the pots you need.
The MüB-F sports a set neck as default choice. Neck through construction is available as optional.
The lower horn design is available in different shapes to provide the best ergonomics for your playing style.
