Metropol

2,950.00 

The Vincent METROPOL is a bass for (almost) everyone. Inspired by the great American bass icons, handcrafted using the TRUE TONE honeycomb chamber process, and equipped with all the features and innovations which make a bass into a genuine Vincent. We are convinced the METROPOL is the right instrument to give free rein to your musicality and creativity.


Review Bass Quarterly November 2019:

“Johannes Pöhlmann from Vincent has succeeded in greatly optimizing a classic bass model “under the hood” without compromising the familiar look and the clear line. The metropol is full of innovations, from the “lightening” and resonance improvement through the self-developed True Tone CombChambered process to the unusual but very functional detail solutions for neck rod, bridge and saddle.”
Ingo Spannhoff, Bass Quarterly, November 2019

Reviews

  1. Pascal Fleck

    I just received my Metropol last week and I have to say I am still baffled on how good this instrument really is. Light weight, really well made sound and excellent build quality make this a good investment for people looking to acquire a jazz-style instrument.

    It is not a small investment, but what you get is an instrument that will last you your whole career.

    It retains all the things that you love about the classic versions while improving upon it by adding a heap of sensible modern improvements (like the cambering, the bridge and nut). I was looking for a new “go-to” instrument and found it in the Metropol.
