I'd like to take a moment to introduce you to some of the players that play a Mallia bass. Some have been friends and customers for a long time, and others are more recent converts. Either way, I'm thrilled and honoured that they have chosen to play something that I've created. All these people put as much heart and soul into their music as I put into building an instrument.

Check out these players (I've included links to their websites and further information). I hope you'll enjoy their music and creativity as much as I do!
