Stoll Guitars / IQ Bass Ukulele / Bass For Sale
THE Travel Size Acoustic Bass
Balanced, precise with quick response in both bass and treble, this Bass Ukulele is excellently suited for anyone looking for an Acoustic Bass easy-to-carry. Despite its size, it also convinces with an impressingly sonorous sound.
The collaboration with professional musicians in terms of design results in quality far above usual Bass Ukuleles. On top of that it is as well able to enter into competion with conventional Acoustic Basses without difficulty.
Sticking to our IQ concept, this little powerhouse is equipped with a multiscale fretboard. The sound hole was moved to the side to allow for a maximum of vibrating surface. For the same reason, it features a widened lower bout. This step results in even more surface, and in addition, the sides are moved farther from the bridge and thus support optimal vibration. With the wide lower bout we increased also handling convenience. Now the player may comfortably rest the picking hand which prevents blood circulation issues.
Jumbo Sound Ukulele-Sized
Small but powerful! With a scale length of 560 to 600 mm this dynamic beauty is loud, crisp and focused. It has a wide midrange with solid fundamentals and subtle overtones. Unlike most ukulele basses, it shines with impressive presence.
We achieved this by combining an excellent construction with a special made kind of strings. Strings commonly made for Acoustic Basses are too stiff to be applied to such a short scale. The strings, made by Pyramid, have a nylon core which is wound with silver-plated copper wire. Thus they are more flexible and therefore able to sustain much longer and cleanly as well. This way the Bass Ukulele can generate more sound and volume with these short strings than an average Acoustic Bass with a common scale length.
For this Bass Ukulele we chose classical woods like Indian Rosewood for back and sides and Spruce for the top. Other percussive woods are available on request.

Stoll Guitars, Germany
Handicraft - Made in Germany
We value clean and high quality handicraft and selected materials. Thereby we pursue the concept of quality "Made in Germany". All of our guitars are made of solid tonewood. Before processing these valuable tonewoods we keep them in our workshop for years to dry slowly, as it is best for their determination.
Our bindings are made of wood, nut and bridge are made of bone and dots and inlays are of mother of pearl.Small SeriesOur guitars (standard models) are built in small series of maximum 4 pieces. In this way, we save time and can still control the technical quality of our work. and keep the technical quality of our work fully under control. we combine time-saving work with the best possible view of the technical quality of our work.
Quality From the Start
Even with our entry-level models, we set high standards of quality. Good sound, good workmanship and solid tonewoods here are also a must, as in the upper price ranges.
Most of our woods we buy directly in the country of origin. We also dispense with expensive glossy brochures. The benefits we grant to you.
Enjoyment of Work
Only those who have pleasure in their work, do it good and conscientious. Therefore, all our employees, including the trainees, have their own field of responsibility, which is regularly reviewed and is growing with the acquired skills. By doing this we constantly give new challenges which makes work interesting and varied. This applies also to our
Concept of Education
From the very first day we confront our apprentices with the real life of a luthier. Instead of sweeping the workshop they learn to build guitars from the start. Firstly with a lot of support and control, over time more independently they build our entry-level models Primera and PT59. By this concept we are able to offer entry-level guitars in the classical section under and in the steel string section slightly above 1,000 Euros.In advanced level of training, the apprentices are then successively introduced to the premium quality guitars. Accordingly the availability of Primera and PT59 is reduced. Economically, Environmentally, Politically Correct.
For a handmade guitar from a local luthier you invest 100% of your money in the quality of the instrument, while the price of guitars from overseas is more than 50% of costs for transportation and middlemen. Short transport routes and the production under European environmental standards is environmentally friendly and reduces carbon emissions. By investing in a local quality product you will not only add value by over 100% but help to maintain our quality of life.
