„When I first played one of Siggis bass`, it was love at first sight! Right away I knew that my search for a “perfect” bass ended here. These fantastic instruments have everything a musicians heart is seeking for: a characteristic, brilliant, well balanced, warm and round sound; outstanding sustain; sensitive and direct response; extraordinary well playability; unique and first class workmanship and masterly chosen wood (if Siggi knocks on a piece of wood, he knows exactly how it will sound)! It's not possible to top it!!!”
