Sensuous body design, progressive pickup, and quality hardwoods.
The 5-string Lace Helix LHB5 Neck-Through Bass is equipped with the revolutionary Alumitone pickup, designed by Jeff Lace. It features a multi-laminate maple neck, mahogany body, dual Alumitone bass pickups, 3-way selector switch, and a master switch for volume and tone.
Lace Alumitone pickups are current driven unlike traditional voltage-based pickups, delivering higher fidelity, and broadband response that helps to create a tighter top-end, more mid-range and a huge bottom end. The passive Alumitone pickup outperforms many active systems, and the Helix bass's sonic output level generally exceeds that of similar pre-amp equipped basses.
With today's increased environmental concerns, Lace also wanted to create a lightweight, advanced pickup that doesn't contribute to the pollution caused by discarded batteries. Lace Alumitone pickups eliminate the need for conventional pickups with a preamp and battery, jettisoning almost 2 lbs without compromising output or performance.
Lace Alumitone soapbar pickups and data knobs are made in the U.S.A. with installation and setup completed at the Lace Music factory in Huntington Beach, CA.
Lace includes a custom-fitting, custom-shaped, and custom-designed Lace Red Label gig bag with Velcro neck strap that fits your Helix 5-string bass nice and snug. It features heavy-duty zippers, leather zipper handles, leatherette front pad and end cover, Lace Red Label logo on-body section, and the Lace Helix logo along the neck area and shoulder strap. The bag's zippered, easy-access front storage pocket has penholder, a front pocket large enough to fit cables, cellphones, wallets, straps, and your other small accessories. The bag also has a larger pouch perfect for sheet music or set lists.
