Player’s individual Touch
Huxley’s work is a testament to humanity and the expressiveness of the individual person. Our moews HUXLEY 51P bass model celebrates this mentality with a devotion to the player’s individual touch. You matter! What you have to say musically matters! The hand-wound single-coil astonishes players with both thumping low frequencies as well as differentiated overtones. So do not settle for second best before you have tried our interpretation of an icon from 1951 – it may just alter your consciousness!

| Aging Stages
Instruments in Collectors condition share the charm of a carefully looked after classic. The Player degree of aging feels like your favourite pair of worn-in jeans. And our Roadie reflects the life-long bonding of musicians and their no.1 instrument.
| Self-Lubricating Nut
Reducing friction at the most crucial spot: our self-lubricating nut improves tuning stability and sustain.
| Pure Nitro Finishes
Doing it right and doing it the right way: every moews instrument is coated with the thinnest nitrocellulose finish. Traditionally applied it brings an unmistakable charm to the instrument and enables it to resonate freely.
We know our instruments best. It is only natural that we do not rely on third party manufacturers when it comes to pickups. Pickups are wound to our specifications or on request even hand-wound in house. A three-dimensional tone that showers the player with nuances is our goal here.
With thousands of instruments having passed through our hands we observed what makes a quality vintage instrument come alive: the level of detail put into the neck is crucial here. We round off our fretboards in a way that they will literally fall under your fingers.
