Löwenherz Exciter Bass

We apologize, but the LÖWENHERZ EXCITER Bass wants to be not ness than the ultimate electric bass!
The Bass is perfectly balanced, not too light, not too heavy and was made for every situation whenever you are in need of a strong tone. From a tender Pussy Cat to a roaring Tiger, every sound is possible.
„High Class“ to us means – no compromise! So you won’t find any plastic or cheap material on a LÖWENHERZ EXCITER Bass. We think that only the best materials are needed to get that outstanding tone and a unique instrument. Let’s take a closer look...

Exciter

Neck

Exciter Neck

It all beginns with the neck, this is the origin, this is the founatin. To provide the players with an outstanding sound, we choose a special construction. To built up the neck that we use in this method since 2004. The Base is a combination of Maple and Bubinga. Not 3 oder 5 oder 7, we need 11 stripes to form the neck and to create the unique sound of a LÖWENHERZ Bass.
Please note, that this is a FULL Neck-Through-Construcion, real from the body to the top!

Body Center Wood

The main tone of the instrument comes from the neck. But of course the Center Wood is from a great importance.

You can choose between two options:

Exciter Body
Swamp Ash

Swamp Ash – we suggest for Rock-Fans as well as Slap-Attacker. Swamp Ash is a little bit lighter than Mahagoni, so the tone is a little bit bigger and shiny.

Exciter Mahagoni
Mahagoni

Mahagoni – if you are into Jazz and Fusion, then may be the Mahagoni is your wood. Mahagoni stands for a warm tone and a very nice definition. You can use it for rock as well.

Of course we leave the decision up to you.

Pickups

Exciter Pickups

For a powerful car you need a strong engine. And for a powerful bass you will also need a strong engine.

Believe it or not, but you will get six engines that work in a LÖWENHERZ EXCITER Bass.

On each each EXCITER you will find three Magic BuckersTM. You can split the coils and than you will have six pickups in general. With these six pickups you can create sounds
From precise Jazz sounds up to extraordinary positions – everything is possible. For each coil you have a seperate On/Off-Switch. That makes it easy to explore new grounds, if you are ready for.

We use for these special bass pickups exclusively handwired by Christoph Dolf/BassCulture. As you see, the wood cases were made of the same wood that we use fort he body.

This feature is included, with no extra charge.
