Normandy Archtop Aluminum Bass

The Normandy Archtop bass is a unique creation. It plays and feels very similar to any other well made archtop bass.Normandy Archtop Aluminum Bass 2

It feels substantial but it is not overly heavy. Sonically, this bass is unlike any other. Rather than the dark thump of a Gretsch, this bass snarls in the low mids. It sounds great clean, but it wants to drive the beat. It clearly sounds hollow but with more clarity and brightness.

We ran it through an Orange OB1-500 and on a clean setting it felt great for traditional hollow body tones.
It sounds great on a walking jazz beat. With a bit of gain, I wanted to play Lemmy riffs for the rest of the day
