High-quality hardware made by ETS or Schaller contributes
to the good sound as do the excellent Bartolini, Delano or
Marleaux pick-ups capable of reproducing the entire sound
spectrum of Marleaux basses with power, transparency and liveliness.
The versatility in terms of sound of a Marleaux bass is enhanced
by Marleaux's active/passive 2- or 3-band-electronic circuitry

3-band). These electronic circuits allow for shaping the sound
image without affecting the instrument's unique character.
The surfaces of Marleaux basses are refined and sealed with
2-component PU varnish giving the instruments their velvety
flat finish. Upon request Marleaux basses are also available
with a colored or high-gloss finish.

craftsmen it is Marleaux's continuous commitment to improve
upon classical designs, and to realise the customers sound
