One of the feature that sports the Manne production is the neck/body jointer, a system that allow the neck to be installed very near the body edge without the need of a heel, giving a great access and a solid connection. We applied this system with the result of a unique upper frets access up to the 24 fret. Manne quality neck provide fast and precise playability, commonly considered one of the best necks on the markets.
"The Malibu bass is simply a great combination of classic design and modern playability and sound. This is an amazing instrument that I am sure can bring together with a smile : vintage instruments lovers and boutique aficionados !!! It looks like it’s 1960 again and it feels and sound like it’s 2010. It feels solid and sturdy, every note is perfectly balanced and its playability is almost ridiculous, what more could you ask from a bass? That it plays by itself ?....well, with this one, we’re almost there!" Fabrizio Grossi, L.A. musician and producer.

The CostaLab Booster is the pedal that started CostaLab brand experience. It 'an important tool for every guitarist because not only it simply can be used to turn up the volume, but more organically, is used to "push" the device downstream connected. By using it with a tube amp you can switch from one set to the sound of a powerful crunch and creamy lead sound. Similarly, it can be used to give an overdrive pedal more saturation. Finally, the CostaLab Booster can also be used simply to increase your own volume during solos. Just because of its aptitude for use in situations with a lot of gain, the pedal has been set in order to get a thinly hazy response on treble, a warm and smooth sound, very reminiscent of the sound produced by a tube system. It is well known, indeed, that with distorted sounds and rich in harmonics, adding an additional gain stage often involves the presence of rattling treble too.
The hot feature of this pedal completely avoids such risk and, due to its very low noise, it even allows use in extreme conditions. Moreover, being provided with the ability to reset the volume, it can also serve as a signal limiter. Appreciated by both guitarists bassists, the CostaLab Booster is an essential accessory of your setup. The CostaLab Booster is equipped with a mechanical "true bypass" switching system and with an anti-pop filter too. The unit is powered by 9 DC volts and is connected by the classic DC 2.1 mm plug with negative pole-center. The current draw is less than 20 mA.
The unit can also operate with a 9-volt battery. In this case the circuit is on by the input jack In order to save the battery life it is recommended to remove the input jack from the socket when you stop using it. You can still keep the battery inside the pedal even when it is powered through the DC socket, for the external power supply system is able to automatically rule out the battery. The unit is 111x60x32mm not counting the knob and the jacks. The CostaLab Booster is entirely hand made in all its parts: the circuit is manually assembled, wired and tested one by one, the die cast aluminum box is hand pierced. When ready, each single model is 24 hours continuously tested in order to identify any defect.
New definition of guitar amps. Until today, guitarists could only choose between two types of amplifiers: heads and combos. Now, we are introducing a completely new breed: The Stomp-Head.
It is a pure analog design with unprecedented light weight and small size. The amplifier can be placed either on a stage floor just beside the effects, in a traditional way on the top of the speaker cabinet, or set up on an effect board. It features a built-in foot switches which allow fast channel and sound shape changes during the performance. When the Stomp-Head is used as a head amp, an external standard foot switch or controller can be directly connected in order to access all of the amp’s features. Anywhere you go take your sound with you!
Stomp-Head 4.SL (4 foot-switches)
Power output: 70W RMS with a power brake to 40/7/4W
The EKO EVO(lution) series carries the "genetic" code of the MIA series, which have become Eko’s most successful guitars in recent years. The MIA series changed the perception of EKO from being mainly a "first guitar" to becoming the Ultimate guitar in the hands of great artists and professionals. EVO series takes a step further by focusing on the close relationship between musician and instrument, with Open Pore finish,so to leave intact the contact and feeling with the wood. Reduced body thickness makes the instrument with a great sound, a perfect, comfortable "fit" when played. The use of 3 different stages of maturation of the wood and open pore finish, make these instruments extremely lightweight and resonant, the sound is warm, and the depth of cedar is made more present by the mahogany back and sides. The width of the NUT has been increased to 45 mm, to better support fingerstyle lovers used to fingerboard&rsuqo;s of renowned and historical brands. The length of the DIAPASON is by choice different between the various models.
