Order before 3pm Mon-Thu for Next Day Delivery
Ibanez SR series bass guitars have been offering low-end lovers some of the best modern basses available for more than three decades now. These versatile, easy-to-play instruments are consistently evolving with the times and can be seen gracing stages and studios the world over, with every conceivable level of player making full use of their groundbreaking design - try one just the once and you'll see why professionals around the globe use an SR bass as their go-to instrument.
An ergonomic, musical bass for the modern generation
With the SRMS805-DTW you are presented with a mid-range 5-stringed instrument that's full of premium-level appointments, with a stunning Deep Twilight finish over a Poplar Burl top. Featuring a super-smooth multi-scale 5pc neck, mahogany body, highly-versatile Bartolini pickups, an active 3-band EQ with bypass switch, and even a 3-way Mid Frequency selector switch, this is the kind of bass that would suit any gigging or studio environment.
BH2 pickups from Bartolini provide you with a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style magnets help maximise the articulation of your playing, and the specially designed long blade pole pieces provide you with balanced string to string pickup response.
Multi Scale Construction
As you'll notice from the above image, the SMS805 sports an unusial looking fretboard, with fanned frets - this is due to the multi-scale nature of the bass's setup. The 35.5" low B string keeps proper tension even at down tuning and accurate pitch without becoming uncomfortable. The 34" G string, which is the same as regular scale, is even smoother to play especially in the melodic upper frets, and offers a punchy, sweet tone.
This ensures that each string is at the correct tension, and produces the most accurate, clear tones possible across the entire fretboard. Despite this unusual construction, the nature of the SRM5 neck ensures a consistently comfortable playing experience regardless of your playing style.
Mono-rail V Bridge
Often described as the "ultimate bridge for bass string isolation", the Mono-rail V is not to be sniffed at. Each string has it's own individual bridge, ensuring that they're independently and securely locked down to the body, resulting in maximum vibration transfer without interference.
Part of what makes this bass so versatile is the Ibanez 3-band active EQ - allowing you to shape your tone to your heart's desire - complimented by the awesome Mid Frequency Switch. This switch allows you to determine which mid-range frequencies are cut or boosted, offering you a wide variety of tonal variatians that can enhance your playing, regardless of how complex or straightforward it is.
As if this wasn't enough, there's an EQ bypass switch allowing you to play with the sweet and pure tones of the pickups themselves without the aid of the EQ (although with the EQ switched off, the Treble control reverts to a passive tone control, giving you the option of sculpting your sound a little should you need it).
