Summers nearly gone so it’s back to passing the time - This little beauty is a @blastcult Hollow Vee - Sounds as good as it looks & is my only form of retail therapy. Thanks to Jason & Diana, it’s a classy piece of wood and beautifully detailed hand-work"
— Andy Taylor (Duran Duran, The Power Station, Band Aid)
The limited edition “The Batavia Guitar” is a new addition to my guitar line-up. The builder, Jason, pours his passion and love for rock’n roll into every detail on this guitar. The appearance is sexy and glamorous, and the neck and other parts are well-balanced. It offers the right blend of sweet and chime, the playability is excellent. Truly welcoming a new traveling companion on my tour.

I have devoted my entire life’s work to taking the upright bass to new sonic heights. Every inch of my being is occupied with the expression of my world view, my spiritual ascension and my ancestral responsibilities. My primary vehicle for such a heavy and daunting task is the Blast Cult ONE4FIVE. Sounds intense, I know, but the instrument is more than its materials and grander than its design. Jason Burns has created a vessel for bravery.
— Miles Mosley (Kamasi Washington, Lauryn Hill, Kendrick Lamar)
Here’s what I know. I’ve had a Blast Cult Bass by my side now for 10 plus years and over 1500 plus shows. I’ve taken her all over the world through every form of travel and weather condition you can imagine and every time I pull her out of the case she’s ready to rock. I depend on it. It’s the best “rock and roll” bass out there bar none. And now, my latest bass has a removable neck for airline travel! Thanks Jason, My Blast Cult and I are now unstoppable!
— Jimbo Wallace (Reverend Horton Heat)
I’ve been slapping and plucking away in Psychobilly, Hip Hop and Metal bands for over 30 years, but ever since I met Master Luthier Jason Burns my instruments were finally able to live up to the standards of modern music. I was also able to play loud, progress as a player and utilize the sound of the upright much more in different styles of music than just Rockabilly. Blast Cult's innovative mind and passion to build instruments that hold their own in the studio and upon every stage on this planet is a life savior to us upright bassists.
- Christian Olde Wolbers (Cypress Hill, Viol-lence x, Fear Factory, The Ratmen)
I’m blown away yet again. "I have been playing Blast Cult ONE4FIVE basses for 10 years - by conviction. My brand new workhorse is a deluxe version with removable neck. I thought there wasn't much that could be done to improve the original instrument but Jason outdid himself. The pure craftsmanship, the acoustics and the many details truly make this one of a kind! Many thanks Diana and Jason!"
