Starting in 1978, Ken Smith has developed or introduced so many of the innovations used on today’s basses which are now industry standards. Some of these include Printed Circuit Board Electronics, Graphite Inlaid Neck, Detented Balance and EQ controls, Low ‘B’ Design .128 and .130, and Taper Core Bass Strings. Ken Smith hand selects the wood for every bass from his in-house lumberyard, which features over 20 species of aged tonewoods, and is probably the largest single collection and variety of acclimated musical-grade woods in the world. Admiring of the techniques of 16th – 19th Century European stringed instrument makers, Ken Smith Basses has married together both Old World Tradition with Modern Innovation. Ken Smith himself still supervises the production of each bass and himself does the final set-up.
