Creations

Within our concept wood is the most important component. The right wood choice can lead to an instrument that extraordinarily discovers your inner bass voice. A sonical experience you have always dreamed of.

– T. Germann, Founder of Torillo Custom Basses

Body Shapes

Over the years Torillo designed and devloped three generic but unique body shapes to match best ergonomics, 100% balanced instruments with solid construction and best possible playbility. Shevette, Volta and Fargo were born. The latest body shape within the Torillo portfolio is a tribute to one of the most respected rock bass outfits: the Vidar.

The Fargo is our single cut interpretation with neck through body construction

Our Volta is a petite classic double cut design with neck through body construction

The Shevette is our classic double cut design with bolt-on neck construction

Vidar tributes one of our all time favourite neck-through rock bass outfits.
