D-Roc-4 Standard Gloss Metalflake Aquamarine

Dingwall was founded by Sheldon Dingwall from Canada, and together with his team, Sheldon  is right at the forefront of designing basses. There are a lot of things that make Dingwall stand out from the rest of the bass pack: Their unique looks, lightweight build and super-fast and highly playable necks are just some of them. But their most unique quality is definitely the dedication to fanned frets.

So, why do I need fanned frets?

Well, if you have ever played a 5 or 6 string bass, you have probably noticed that the low B-string often sounds more dull than the E-string, and the high C-string  sounds brighter and thinner than the G-string.

This is because they use the same scale length across the entire fretboard, when in reality, the B-string needs a longer scale length and the C-string should have a shorter scale length to sound its best. Dingwall’s fret design combats exactly this pitfall by varying the scale length across the fretboard.

The D-Roc Standard is the latest model from the Asian-built Dingwall designs. These basses, which also includes the Combustions and NG’s, are overall the more budget-friendly Dingwall choices, but they are still amazing basses, which represent huge bang and for the buck.

 Before D-Roc basses are unleashed upon the happy bass player community they undergo the full-blown Dingwall quality control procedure in Canada in order to ensure that the quality meets the expectations you have grown accustomed to with Dingwall basses.

The D-Roc is primarily aimed at the Rock bassist, but it’s still a pretty versatile instrument that is not shy of taking on other genres and playing styles. 

The body is made of mahogany and has a slim profile with an average weight of just under 4 kg. 

The ergonomics on the rear side of the bass makes it very comfortable to wear, and the small and light-weight headstock removes any head dive risk, which you could easily experience in the original design the D-Roc is inspired by. 

The neck is made of maple and is pretty slim with a medium-thin C-Shape, and with a fretboard radius of 240 mm, it is simply super-easy to play with minimum effort, allowing you to focus your thoughts and energy entirely on grooving hard.

The fretboard is made of Pau Ferro, which sits in between Maple and Rosewood, giving the D-Roc Standard a combination of pleasant warmth and fast punch, making the bass able to growl. 

The pickups are Dingwall’s own neodymium FD3-n that have a high and aggressive, yet smooth, output. This gives the D-Roc a really impressive, potent and powerful sound despite being a passive bass. It comes with a rotary switch with 4 positions for the 3 pickups, which is really the secret to its versatile nature that can take you from delicate to massive and monstrous sounds.

All in all this bass will rock you hard!
