WAL 1979 BASS Pro 11E
Here an early WAL Bass Pro 11E, 4-string bass guitar. Made in the Electric Wood Co, custom, bass numbered WAL crafted by Wal / Electric Wood in 1979. The bass body and neck are made of Brazilian mahogany core, American walnut and Indian rose fretboard. The backplate has serial number engraved. Includes non original hard case
According to the History of Wal Basses website, the bass has “twin pickups with a powerful active circuit offering volume, pickup pan and separate tone controls for each pickup. The volume included a push/pull knob which also activated the ‘pick-attack’ feature. This adds a narrow band of high frequencies to the overall tone setting to provide a more dynamic, percussive attack – ideal for helping the bass cut through a muddy live mix. The tones are low-pass shelving controls governing each pickup. They also each have a push/pull switch which engages an active boost (quasi-parametric) giving a more distinctively ‘active’ tone. Bass has seen good use and has gigging marks, one pot knob is missinG. The bass is quite heavy, but balances well.
