Catalina 7/8 Bass is a Lemur Music Exclusive design. Catalina has been in production for more than 10 years and is the larger sister to Tosca and Venice. All three are made with traditional Italian Styling in proportions, materials, and craftsmanship. Our Current Catalina Stock has a medium dark brown spruce top, maple back and sides, with a matte oil varnish, hand-rubbed to a nice luster. Fingerboards in this batch of three basses are meaty and thick, so we can setup this bass for any type of play you prefer. With orchestra strings and a taller bridge Catalina can deliver the projection and harmonics you need for section work. The larger 7/8 size body resonates well in the fundamentals of course, but the top has also been graduated to deliver a balanced mid-range for more lyrical jazz work, too.
It’s really all in the setup – and Lemur never cuts corners on professional quality adjustments! So give us a call to arrange the best playability and tone for your particular gig. We ship worldwide and to all 50 states. 800-246-2277.
