Heiko Hoepfinger started experimenting with instrument making in 1992, in his spare time while a PhD thesis in the back of a private appartement, completing his the first instrument in 1993. This first instrument was a one piece, completely hollow and lightweight, just like today's BassLab instruments. Heiko uses a composite material to make a strong one piece structure, or hollow shell, so the body and neck are one piece. BassLabs first official launch was at the 2001 Frankfurt Musikmesse and since they have improved and expanded their offering which now boasts four bass and four guitar standard models (circa 2016). BassLabs are also developing other stringed instruments and offer some electronics products (like preamps) in cooperation with Richter electronics.
