The Dub King produces the thick, deep tone you’d expect from a short scale neck and semi-hollow body. But unlike most basses of this type, it has excellent clarity and sustain thanks to the five-piece neck and lock down bridge. You can even solo the Split Brick neck pickup for super deep thump, and the split pole design keeps it focused.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
PICKUP PAN CONTROL
This control allows you to blend the two pickups with one knob. Roll in the bridge pickup for more midrange punch, or bring up the neck pickup for more low thump and open highs. Dialing in the perfect tone has never been easier!
HEAVY DUTY TUNERS
These open-back tuners feature a large gear and a 1/2″ diameter post for smooth tuning and increased durability. The 1/2″ diameter post also has another advantage: smaller posts cause flatwound strings to break when you wind them… no problem with our tuners.
LOCK DOWN BRIDGE
Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
Our bass necks are constructed from five pieces of wood laminated lengthwise. This creates a stronger and more stable neck that’s less prone to warping, twisting, and humps over the life of the instrument.
