New Model Introduces a New Price Point for Human Base USA

Introduced at the 2007 Winter NAMM Show, the new BaseX.oc5 from Human Base USA ushers in a new price point for the German Designed bass line. Designed by German Master Luthier Siggy Jaeger the Human Base brand is a popular high end bass line enjoyed by many top pros throughout Europe, Asia and North America. Hand building each bass by himself, the production was limited worldwide to 60 pcs per year. To deal with the growing demand for his designs, Siggy has teamed up with Praxis Musical Instruments to produce a bass that meets his design and quality criteria in much more accessible price point.
