Comments off

We’ve just received a shipment of CT basses, and they are available for $999 CDN with case!

Hofner has just introduced the Contemporary Series, which positions itself between the German made original models and the Icon Series entry level instruments!

This new HCT-500/1 Violin Bass is made in China, but utilizes the original German made Höfner HS11B ‘Staple-Top’ pick-ups with a control panel that includes 2 volume controls, 2 circuit breakers and Rhythm/Solo switches for volume Boost … like the original issues!

We have upgraded this particular bass with original “tea cup” knobs and Hofner short scale flatwound strings to make it even more authentic!


* laminate Spruce top (like the originals)
