Welcome to Bazantar. The Bazantar is a custom five-string acoustic bass, fitted with an additional twenty-nine sympathetic strings and four drone strings. The instrument possesses a melodic range of over five octaves, while its sympathetic range spans four octaves. This results in an interplay between melodic, sympathetic, and drone strings which weaves an unexpected landscape of resonance that is remarkably rich in texture. The Bazantar is a deep-sampled virtual instrument containing over 2.700 samples divided into two main categories: Multi-samples and phrase-samples. The multi-samples consists of both plucked and bowed representations of the instrument. We recorded traditional plucked bass with 8 round robins pr. note, a highly versatile amount of tapped samples at 10 round robins, regular sustains with and without vibrato, several dynamic sustains/swells.
