The JUPITER Bass was designed by Lemur Music with a purpose in mind: to create the loudest, punchiest, most affordable bass ever. And we think we succeeded.
The shape started with classic American lines - gamba corners with the back bending forward to make the body thickness at the heel of the neck only 6 inches. The neck is slender and easy to handle.
We also designed the string length to be only 41 5/8 inches, a comfortable relief from other big-sounding basses with string lengths over 43 inches. After that, the smallness ends.
The bridge is tall to create leverage over the sound board. The upper and lower bouts were enlarged to maximize the volume, depth, and projection of the sound.
And what a sound it is!! Enough to be on a Bluegrass stage with nothing but a mic. Enough to play trio club gigs without an amp. Enough to satisfy everyone.

Photo and Setup Considerations
It is our intention to setup each instrument according
to the wishes of the buyer. We offer a wide range of string choices and we customize
for action height, bridge adjusters, and other features. Because each instrument
is made of wood and finished by hand, the wood color, finish, grain, knots and
other characteristics can vary from the picture. In order to achieve the best
fit, parts selected for each bass may also vary. We use high quality, durable
parts on all our bass setups - however the exact style, ornamentation, and appearance
may vary. For example, the exact style, ornamentation,
and appearance of tuning machines may vary from the picture. The same is true
for the bridge, tailpiece and soundpost. Thank you for your flexibility.
