NEWS: The REVIVAL™ COLLECTION.

Baum® Launches THE REVIVAL™ COLLECTION.

(Aarhus, Denmark) March 15, 2023. Baum has announced the release of their new Revival™ series. A new custom collection crafted in Denmark by Baum Custom upcycling and reusing guitar parts from the production series in new and sustainable ways.

 

The Revival™ Collection reinvents how Baum makes guitars. It combines the best of both the production series Original™ & VEGA™ and the luthier-made Custom Shop by taking any guitars with production or cosmetic flaws and remaking them into completely new guitars in Denmark. Each piece is carefully repaired, improved, and upcycled into a new limited Baum instrument. Likewise, each guitar gets upgraded wiring with vintage cloth wire, higher-grade potentiometers, and the same attention to the fretwork as any custom guitar.

 

The Revival™ guitar is redesigned with custom colors and configurations not available in any current production series. To continue the story of the upcycled and reborn guitar, each piece is aged varying from subtle to rock n’ roll styled. This makes each Revival™ guitar exclusive.

Revival™ is about respect. And I have always had the deepest respect for our materials. Especially wood, one of the finest materials on earth. Wood is a delicate and fine material, but it is also very fragile when it passes a lot of human labor in the production line. And there will be some guitars that will not pass our quality control in Denmark. There will always be waste. That is why we have launched the Revival Collection in the Baum Custom – a collection that reduces waste and makes the finest new guitars. With respect for the bodies and necks that didn’t pass the initial quality control, we give them new life.  

I believe that by building high-quality guitars that bring joy to making music and creating the culture around us, we give wood the deserved use and respect.

Morten Bau, Founder & Chief Designer

The Process.

Each guitar is redesigned by Morten Bau and the Custom team, to offer the player an experience not available in any other Baum collection. This starts by designing a Baum guitar out of the ordinary.

The first step is selecting new colors, pickup configurations, and custom guitar creations like how bodies and necks are matched.

When Revival™ guitars are crafted in the Custom Shop, Denmark, the luthiers upgrade the wiring to old-school cloth wires, give it a complete fretwork and fret dressing like any custom guitar, and shield the guitars properly so it sounds and plays at its best.

The Revival™ collection is crafted with three core values in mind: Respect. Rethink. Replay.

 

Respect: Baum has the deepest respect for the natural resources used in guitar making, and we go to great lengths to increase their lifecycle.

 

Rethink: Baum rethink every single Revival model to include specifications, sounds, or options not available in any current production series. This makes each Revival special.

Replay: Revival is made in the Danish Custom Shop to give the player the smoothest and mind-blowing experience. Carefully crafted, these guitars are ready to play. Again.

The REVIVAL™ Collection includes the proprietary Goldsound® Pickups, Levitator™ Roller-bridge, and a Baum hardcase.

AVAILABILITY

The REVIVAL™ Collection starts in March 2023 and will be a monthly release.

Each month, Baum will release a new batch consisting of 10-20 revived pieces, and these will be available via the Baum Store at baumguitars.com and selected Baum dealers.

    what is split payment?

    We’ll divide your purchase amount into four/six payments, billed to your current credit card. The split payment is only available on preorders and not instruments in stock.

    How it works

    Split in 4 or 6 months
    Simply split the instrument’s full price evenly in 4 or 6 with no extra costs or fees. Check availability on the selected instrument.
    First payment
    The first payment is charged to your payment card at the time the order is placed. The shipping charges will be added to the first payment.
    Monthly payment
    Subsequent installments will be charged to your payment card at monthly intervals for the duration of your payment plan.
    Shipping
    The instrument will ship when the instrument is in stock, and the full payment is completed.

    There are no fees or penalties for paying your balance early, but the earliest delivery will be when the item is in stock.

     

    By proceeding with Baum Guitars’ Split Payments plan, you promise to keep enough credit available on the card you have provided so that future installments can be charged to that card. If the card expires or is canceled, you agree to notify Baum Guitars and supply an alternative card with the necessary funds available before the next payment is due.

     

    As with any credit card purchase, you are responsible for all interest and/or fees levied by your credit card company.

    why pre-order?

    Baum is a small company, and we make guitars in small batches. We value quality over quantity any day, and preorders help us to keep our production as precise as possible.

     

    Each preorder has a huge impact on our small business and is uniquely meaningful. Our players are people who like high quality, a smooth feeling and like to play different, and instrument preorders can help ensure that we deliver that.

     

    So, what do you get with a preorder?

     

    The obvious downside is the wait…Preordered items will have an estimated delivery date in the future. But let’s look at why it’s worth waiting for.

    By preordering, you get to confirm a purchase within our next-coming batch. Because we do small-scale production, our batches are often sold out before they get to Denmark, so this way you will be guaranteed one.

     

    This is why you get an instrument that in many ways is special. First, the entire instrument is designed from our Danish philosophy and based on our years of experience as luthiers. All our designs are our own and are made to bring you fresh inspiration.

     

    Second, we make our own hardware for our instruments. Our Precision Tuners™, Levitator™ Roller bridge, and TrueTone™ tremolo are all designed to fit our instruments perfectly.
    Our Goldsound® pickups are also designed and made to our instruments only.

     

    Lastly, we give all guitars a solid quality control and set-up in Denmark before we ship it. We handle this step in our custom workshop in Aarhus, Denmark to give you the best experience possible.

     

    We hope you’ll consider a preorder from us.
