Gigbag: June 2001

Citron CB5 Chambered Bass

The Citron CB5 is an offset, double cutaway, 2-inch-thick chambered electric five-string bass, with an ash body capped in curly or quilted maple, and a three-piece laminated hard-rock maple neck. The CB5 features two custom-blended Citron humbucking pickups, and an Aguilar preamp. The combination of custom pickups and construction creates a sound that is mega deep.

Kiwi NeckPak

Protect your neck. Kiwi’s two versions of NeckPak allow saxophonists to protect their mouthpieces and necks when they are being stored. The Original NeckPak features two separate Velcro-locked compartments. The soft pouch fits conveniently in the sax bell and comes in three sizes: alto, tenor and baritone. The New York Model NeckPak is for saxophonists who store the mouthpiece on the neck. Like the Original, the single-compartment pouch also features soft padding and Velcro, but it is not available for bari players. For more information, contact 651-739-4510.
