Kot Basses, based out of Portland Oregon, strives to create custom basses that will compliment each individual’s vision of what that “vehicle” should be about. Kot Basses has worked hard to perfect what they feel are the essential aspects of a great instrument, the elements of sound, response, feel, and playability. The importance of addressing those components in great depth gives Kot Basses the opportunity, or better said the tools to more closely meet the needs of each individual, as their “vision”, if you will, of their personal instrument will most certainly vary. Kot Basses feels that this is the heart of what a “custom bass guitar” is all about, and that the most important element of their construction methods, beyond a great sound, centers on creating an instrument that literally takes the focus off of the physicality of playing, and keeps it where it should be; on the communication itself because, to Kot Basses, THIS is where your voice begins to unfold.
