The D-Roc Standard is a player-driven instrument that sits on the rockier side of the tone tracks, but it’s far from a one-trick pony. With a 4-position Quad-tone rotary pickup selector that offers four distinct voicings, the D-Roc Standard will help you deliver your own sound to your audience in its purest possible form.
Select from 4- or 5- string models, and choose from four available finishes, including Gloss Metalflake Aquamarine, Blue to Purple Colorshift, Matte Blackburst and Vintageburst.
The body is constructed from an African mahogany called khaya, with a five-piece maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard. Each of the four color options have been finished with a polyurethane coat, making this D-Roc really stand out from the crowd.
The growing endorsee list gives an indication of where they’re proving popular – current users include Mason Nagy (Devil Wears Prada), Claudio Rocha (X-Factor) and Nick Campbell (Scary Pockets).
The D-Roc Standard is triple-loaded with FD-3N passive pickups. The key to their punchy tone is the use of Neodymium magnets; higher output means a more aggressive sound. Using the 4-position Quad-tone pickup selector, you can choose to operate the bridge pickup in parallel, the bridge and middle pickups in series, the neck and bridge pickups in parallel or the neck pickup in series. The remaining controls comprise passive tone and master volume
The adjustable Hipshot bridge has been specially designed for Dingwall (as have the Hipshot Ultralite tuners, and the Switchcraft jack) and provides an increased range of flexibility when it comes to adjusting the action.
All of the hardware, from the knurled control knobs to the edge-mounted jack socket, is plated with smoked nickel.
Dingwall strings have been meticulously tested to maximize performance and deliver a tone that blends effortlessly with any style of music. We were the first company to design strings specifically for multi-scale instruments. Available in both nickel and stainless steel, our strings provide an even tension for optimal balance, letting you experience the warmest highs and the tightest lows possible.
Note: basses are shipped with Dingwall Nickel Strings
