Wal is now accepting orders!
The brand new Wal website is fully operational and now ready to accept new Wal bass orders. This is great news indeed! Prices begin at £3200.
After Ian Waller passed away, Pete continued to handcraft wonderful instruments for roughly the next twenty years. Then health issues set in and Pete had to decide where to take the company next. It's worth mentioning that several large companies made offers to take over the Wal name and production, but true to his vision, Pete struck a deal with noted luthier Paul Herman to continue the proud craft. Paul is the perfect choice, having apprenticed at Wal in earlier days. His signature is inside many of the wonderful instruments produced in the '90s, having performed the final setup and inspection.
Sincere best wishes to Electric Wood Limited and Paul for continued success!
