The Wilkins RoadTested Marlin Series

Incorporates Innovations in Tone and Versatile Configurations


The NEW Marlin Series Basses have custom designed Tic Tac pickups by Howard Ulyate that are powerful and have a very aggressive, full spectrum sound that perfectly compliments the 32” scale. 


The Marlin J4 and J5 basses incorporate J style pickups, double wide with Tic Tac magnets and P style positioning. The Marlin J Series comes chambered  and is available in exotic woods.


Marlin PJ4 and PJ5 are built on a P style body with an added J style pickup which is mounted closer to the neck to increase the fullness and tonal range. When the custom pickups are combined with an Audere preamp the variety of tone is incredible. The PJ configuration is extremely flexible and strives to provide a “one bass fits all” solution for the working musician.

Wilkins Basses endorsed by 

Peter Cetera

"In my 38 years as an electric bassist I have owned just about every bass you can think of... Nothing ever fully satisfied my eclectic tastes or truly diverse gig demands until I discovered my Wilkins basses. Not only are the electronics flexible enough to rise to any occasion, but the feel of the instrument is unsurpassed. No matter what you're looking for in an instrument, Wilkins can keep you happy for a long, long time. I'm hooked!"
