Reverend Mercalli 4 - Alpine Green - Bass Guitar
The Mercalli 4 is a well crafted instrument with the right amount of pop to make all bass players no longer just "the bass player". The satin oil finish on the back of the neck keeps the neck smooth for easy movement up and down the neck. Reverend puts their patented lock down bridge that keeps the bass in tune longer. The eight bolt locking system in the neck creates a pocket that helps give the bass more sustain to the sound. Reverend has their own custom pickups in the bass. The bridge pick up has a similar fat sound to the M style pick ups, and the neck pick up is similar to that of a split coil sound. The Mercalli 4 is a smooth playing bass with a big punch and deep overtones to back it's sound. *AC
Big, deep and punchy with excellent clarity is the calling card of the Mercalli. The innovative passive pickups have that vintage warmth, while the five-piece neck and lock down bridge deliver modern punch and sustain!
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
PICKUP PAN CONTROL
This control allows you to blend the two pickups with one knob. Roll in the bridge pickup for more midrange punch, or bring up the neck pickup for more low thump and open highs. Dialing in the perfect tone has never been easier!
HEAVY DUTY TUNERS
These open-back tuners feature a large gear and a 1/2″ diameter post for smooth tuning and increased durability. The 1/2″ diameter post also has another advantage: smaller posts cause flatwound strings to break when you wind them… no problem with our tuners.
LOCK DOWN BRIDGE
Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
SIX-BOLT NECK PLATE
Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment. And for convenience, the two small screws hold the plate in place when removing the neck.
