The delivery times are currently: abstract long, I hope some more come this year?!  If you have any questions here, please feel free to get in touch.

thats what the players say

Ich selbst besitze einen atemberaubenden Solid II von Kristall… und der immer noch begeistert wie am ersten Tag!

Lars LehmanSOLID 4

I still get a lot of positive feedback on my Kristall bass from sound engineers and fellow musicians.

Ich war lange auf der Suche nach Instrumenten die einen klanglichen Charakter besitzen –
Diese Bässe haben einfach alles was ich von einem Custom Instrument erwarte
Paul TietzeSOLID 6 / STEADY 6

High custom-made quality is what comes to my mind when I think of Kristall Basses. Andreas Kristall perfectly understands the necessities of a bass-player.
