"I started playing bass guitar at 15. When I was about 18, I discovered a second hand Pedulla Pentabuzz in a
store. Although its shape didn't immediately appeal to my underdeveloped 18 year old taste, the bass melted in my hands when I played it. Eventually I fell in love with the shape as well. So when 4 years later a
shop called me to tell me they had a used Pedulla MVP, I didn't hesitate and bought it without trying it. I've played and recorded with these two instruments for 20 years now, and I got myself even more
Pedulla instruments. But despite the number of Pedulla instruments in our household, I always dreamt about having a Pedulla custom built for me (when I turned 40). So I started saving money (I was about 25). When I
turned 42, my wife said...haven't you forgotten something? I looked at my savings account and realized I could make my dream come true. Because I had waited so long, I didn't even have to make a choice. I
could have both a Pentabuzz and MVP5.
In 2016 both basses arrived, and they're beyond terrific and breathtaking. In fact, I couldn't imagine these new Pedulla basses could be better than the ones I
already had, but they are. The pieces of wood are gorgeous and the craftmanship is amazing. They play wonderful, sound wonderful and look wonderful. I concur with Doug Johns: Michael is at the top of his game. I
[previously] had trouble finishing a few mixes for my album. I just couldn't get them right, but when I retracked the bass parts with these basses, they sounded perfect in my ears. They simply deliver,
effortlessly. These basses will stay with me for the rest of my life. So thank you Michael!
I feel a need to thank Christine too: she raises customer service to a next level. It matches perfectly with the love
and attention Michael puts into his instrument making."
