Avalanche Bass 4&5

I designed this beautiful shape 15 years ago, Avalanche has been the first bass in my career as luthier.
For a long time I desired to include it in the Tribe range of instruments and so, with the end of 2019, I decided to propose Avalanche  in a new, modern and luxury version, with a stunning look, new technical and sound solutions that make Avalanche a universal bass, suitable to the most exigent players.
By trying it, you'll  fall in love with its lightness, its playability and its infinite variety of sounds.
With Avalanche you'll be part of our history.
