the home

of passion - experience - craftmanship

The passion that I'm driven by is to make every bass guitar I build to be the best that I've ever made and to fulfill the high requirements of each individual player as best as I can. To achieve this, I consistently bring in new ideas, make improvements and small adjustments here and there, welcome evolution and growth and persistently pursue my way forward. I don't settle.

Schack Elements


We apply all our knowledge about tone woods and how to combine them in order to fulfill your notion of a certain sound. The more than 30 types of tone wood we use include beautiful and rare pieces from all over the world as well as regional tone wood. The majority of them is stored for more than 15 years under best climatic conditions.


Our own pickups and electronics are designed to bring out the natural sound of the wood without colouring the tone. Nevertheless it is powerful enough to provide a huge dynamic headroom and it offers almost endless possibilities to shape the sound to your preferences.


In addition to focus on using only the best materials as foundation for great instruments, decades of experience in handling, working and combining them and persistently expanding our knowledge and abilities is essential for being able to achieve the best result.


The sound as well as the look of an instrument is an expression of the artist's personality. How it feels in his hands is influenced by the fusion of the shaping and the finish, which protects the instrument, brings out it's full beauty and merges playability with haptic.
