Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is working with cast zinc. This is the first product that we've designed which utilizes this metal. We will need to work very closely with our suppliers to ensure that the quality, weight, performance and workmanship are exceptional when we deliver these into your hands.
We already have our manufacturing all setup in some of the world's best factories which adhere to internationally recognized quality standards and procedures such as ISO9001, ISO/TS 16949, ISO 14000, TQM, SPC.
The prototype is finished and we're ready to go into production. We need your help and we hope you'll join us.

Yes, however it wasn't designed for bass guitars. Yaba X works well for low, mid and high tones. For bass only, you'll need a very large and porous surface to get some good low tones. Ideally a cardboard box the at least 3 x 3 x 3 ft or larger will do the trick. The setup won't necessarily be portable anymore however it could be fun experimenting with different surfaces and sizes.
