ORTEGA

Ortega PM Shaman Pawel Maciwoda

Acoustic bass
The German instrument manufacturer Ortega began in 1994 with the development and construction of concert guitars in the Spanish style, but with modern means. In 2009, Ortega launched its first acoustic bass guitar as part of the Challenger series, which also convinced Ken Taylor, bassist of Peter Maffay. But also Pavel Maciwoda, bassist of the German cult band Scorpions, liked the extra-short scaled basses from Ortega and so an Ortega Lizzy-BSFL was followed by his own signature instrument.The Shaman produces a warm and full sound with a body and neck completely made of mahogany, due to the fretless construction the instrument sings very nicely. The Ortega MagusUke preamp amplifies this and allows great tonal flexibility with its three-band tone control, a tuner is also integrated. When amplified, the instrument surprises with its almost double-bass-like sound in terms of sonority and warmth, which carries the band without any problems.The playability is very good due to the high-quality satin-matt neck finish and the Florentine cutaway, and as usual from Ortega, the instrument can also convince with its manufacturing quality.
