Nikola Adamovic built this bass in 2009 for himself. It was designed for progressive rock style where you need to be heard trough loud drums and two distorted guitars. This bass has a tone that pierces trough everything without being harsh or bright at all. It has a tremendous growl and a deep warm voice while being very articulate, even in the lowest positions of the B-string. It has a big bottom but the emphasis is in the mids and low mids. As you can see it has only one pick-up and just a volume but this bass is very responsive and you can make the sound you want with your fingers.
