Sharp looking modern active bass – The Inspiration is Overwater’s mid-price model handbuilt in Carlisle. It shares the same meticulous build quality and many of the characteristics of a fully custom-built Overwater. Fit, finish, playability and tone are all superb as we’ve come to expect from Chris May and the team.
Overwater basses are renowned for their ‘bell-like’ tonal clarity and the active electronics, unlike with many basses, don’t overpower the fundamental tone of the instrument.
