Lauri Silvonen & Jose Moilanen - Welcome to the Raato Artist Family!

Gents have already had intimate time on stage with their new instruments at SaariHelvetti and Dark River festivals. Otherwise these string slingers have been busy working with new Bloodred Hourglass material since the band will hit studio this fall to record their fifth full length album.

Jose has “Alysia” 4-string 36”- 34” Multiscale bass which was designed to fit his needs.

“I was looking for a four-string bass guitar that’s easy to play, delivers that punchy and crispy tone also in low tunings and obviously looks super cool too!

Cooperation and instrument design with Raato Custom Guitars was smooth and pleasant.

After a few weeks of playing and two live shows I can surely say that ”Alysia” is everything I was looking for – by far the best bass I have ever played.”

Lauri´s new servant is 6-string 27” baritone guitar. Humbly named as “ObliteRaatoR”.

“A custom instrument really built according to your wishes and playing style down to every last detail is something a guitarist mostly dreams of.

A baritone that feels like a standard guitar, asymmetric neck profile, just the right pickup and hardware choices plus absolutely killer looks – delivering all this was no treat for Mika Ruotsalainen (the luthier) and working with him was both extremely professional and smooth from the beginning.

Tested already at a couple of shows and in the studio I’m confident I’ve found the perfect partner when it comes to six stringers!”
