The pink thunder
Baum x Seye Adelekan
We proudly present the Pink Thunder bass.
A thunderous Signature Bass designed and crafted by Baum and Seye Adelekan.
It’s pure love and Thunder.
The power of thunder
The Thunder is a visually striking signature bass complementing Seye’s charismatic, energic and dynamic playing on stage.
“Simple design. One pickup. And then it is more on the person who’s playing the instrument to bring something to it. It can do anything, and that is what you get when you can make it really, really simple. It reflects the player. And I’m really, really glad to say that the Thunder does that”
– Seye Adelekan
Easy to rock. Astoundingly cool. And designed to be played, create music with striking hot inspiration.
Pick it up and wield the power of thunder in your hands.
A multifacetted artist
Seye Adelekan is not only a multi-instrumentalist, but a multifaceted artist. Currently playing the bass in the Gorillaz live band (since 2017). Previously, Seye was a part of the musical collective Africa Express, and has toured with/recorded with musicians such as KT Tunstall, The Noisettes, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Emili Sandé, Birdy, Mumford and Sons, and Paloma Faith.
Outside of this, Seye writes film score, such as the feature length documentary called Tough Bond, or for brands like Harley Davidson. Besides music, Seye has co-written a short story with his brother Olugbenga Adelekan in association with Dr. Martens, and he frequently hosts on the Boogaloo radio show.
Oh. So. Pink.
“I want people to leave a show with a smile on their face. Some kid is coming to see a show for the first time and see this bass – and their eyes are going to pop out of their head, and it is just going to be such a memorable moment. At the end of the day, it is about making good memories for people.”

behind the scenes
Seye Adelekan visited the Baum HQ in 2021 to play, plan and design his new signature Baum.
