Welcome to Maralit Customs and Repairs

Owner / Operator

Erik Cotton


My name is Erik Cotton and I am the owner and operator of Maralit Customs and Repairs. As a Musician of over 25 years as a bass and guitar player I have played most instruments out on the market today and naturally I have found what I love about each instrument and what I hate about each instrument. I vowed to make an instrument that appealed to not necessarily to the world renown guitarist or bass player and not necessarily the instrument collector, but for players like me, the working class musician, the local bar rockstar, the I work the 9-5 and play Friday and Saturday night musician. I wanted to create the gear that would hold up to night after night gigging in the smokey bar or on the biggest stage. The gear that would hold up to night after night of being beat all to hell and still perform at its highest level. Please take a look around my website and see what Maralit Customs and Repairs can do for you.
