Archive: Stephan's Wal Database

Some time ago a Wal enthusiast, Stephan Koesters compiled a database of Wal basses which lived on his personal space at his University's website (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg). Time passed and lives moved on and eventually the database fell into disrepair. Some of the data on here will likely be wildly out of date now (particularly the current ownership of basses). However, there's lots of useful info for dating your basses here - particularly the serial numbers and manufacture dates of a large number of Wals. So, in the spirit of wanting to preserve this information before someone at the University computer science decides to reclaim some defunct disc space the main page of the site is reproduced here. Hope it's of interest and use to you...

The list



There are 361 basses in the list. With the launch of the Pro Bass at the end of 1977/early 1978 Electric Wood, the company that builds the Wal basses, started officially. There are some basses built before that date.
