Check out the latest Emperor Standard Specials, available exclusively at Martin Music in Memphis, TN!
Martin Music, a long time Custom Fodera dealer, drew inspiration from some of their most popular Custom specs including an Ash body and Ebony fingerboard. The combination of Ash and Ebony gives this bass a warm yet punchy low end, precise mids, and clear, bell-like highs. To cap off these special basses, Martin Music and our team hand-selected stunning Poplar Burl and Buckeye Burl topwoods. Tonally, Poplar Burl and Buckeye Burl minimally impact the body woods, allowing it’s full sonic character to show while offering two distinct aesthetic options.
In addition, these Emperor Standard Specials feature a set of our Fodera/ Seymour Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, our passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Designed for optimal performance, our 3-band Fodera / Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active / passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.
