This amazing bass series is a result of the great collaboration between Richard Bona and Marco De Virgiliis who have respected the main principle they share: they don’t accept compromises! Richard is one the most appreciated and respected musicians worldwide and since the very beginning on this project he said he would have never put his name (and his fingers as well) on an instrument that does not deliver the highest quality standard. Marco and his team used all their experience to create an instrument satisfying the highest lute manufacturing standards and all their business knowledge to offer such a great instrument at a very competitive price.
Known as the highest peak in Africa, the Kilimanjaro was designed and improved step by step with Richard Bona until we came to the final result satisfying 100% Richard, Marco and any bass player who had the chance to try the very first samples we made. We’re really proud of this amazing instrument, a lute manufactured bass that has all our passion and experience.
