We import the ALTER EGO instruments from Italy to make them more affordable and locally available in the USA. We combine Italian craftsmanship and tradition with American customer-oriented standards of care and business expectations.
Our work is the result of research, teamwork, and unconditional commitment to quality.
ALTER EGO basses are designed with every detail respecting traditional construction principles. The babySOLID, the BASSO, and the CONTRABBASSO are crafted to provide each musician with their distinctive sound and playing style.
Valentina is the driving force behind ALTER EGO USA. While she moves basses in and out of the office, Valentina devises new plans for the company. She is up early in the morning to skype with the Italian company. In her spare time she enjoys swimming.
