Itamar Collaço new bass model

We dedicate this post to all bass players! May we present you the instrument that will become a milestone at bass world: the TMB-ITC.
Developed after a partnership between Terra Musical and brazilian bass player Itamar Collaço, the bass fully accomplishes the artist’s demands for comfort and lightweight. More than two years were spent with research and adjustments on the first prototype to reach the final results, with great sound and a neat looking. The bass is loaded with Graphtech Hexpander ghost System, allowing endless musical options and tones, maintaining the original aesthetical requests for the instrument. The result is an outstanding bass, built by Luthier Silas Belgate and the Terra Musical team.
