    very light weight for an active

    sound like (like I said) was a Music Man Stingray.

    Only complaint: the battery is a little difficult to remove if you want to change it. but hey no need to unscrew the back plate there is a compartment for the battery.

    Good ergonomics, easy to take control
    zik styles suitable for rock, funk, reggae a little metal but avoid in jazz

    In a word: amazing
    when you have it in the hands difficult to change

    SOUNDS

    I play blues rock and metal for nearly four years with a Fender Mexican accuracies and I note that the Ibanez SR305 is better suited to my style of play

    well in the low round, a little noisy, but certainly in the medium it makes up for in the acute

    According to the settings I'll see over time since it does not do long as I have acquired.

    I play on two different amps at all points: a vintage peavey 150wtt because it must be my age well.
    then a sedan HARTKE of 500w lamp that has breath away well and it sounds funny as well as on the other

    OVERALL OPINION

    Having had 5 bass before this one (an Ibanez SR 100, a BTB 5-string, a Fender Precision and a Mexican Epiphone Thunderbird) I must say this is my favorite

    So for a little over 300 euros you can afford a real gem.

    I advise all experienced bass player who wants to have fun but also for beginners who want to try out the 5-string (with respect to a BTB with a large round as a chocolate bar)

    The Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter is an inexpensive 5 string bass guitar. The bass wasn't made in the USA and was actually made in Indonesia. It's got two EXF passive pick ups and the neck is super thin. I don't know much about the materials this bass is made up of beyond that...

    UTILIZATION

    The playability of the Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter is actually way better than I thought it would be. The thin neck goes a long way with helping to navigate up and down the neck and controlling your tone is even easier. Each pick up has separate tone and volume control and getting a good sound is fairly simple if you can play a bit. You're not going to get the be…

    UTILIZATION

    The playability of the Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter is actually way better than I thought it would be. The thin neck goes a long way with helping to navigate up and down the neck and controlling your tone is even easier. Each pick up has separate tone and volume control and getting a good sound is fairly simple if you can play a bit. You're not going to get the best bass sound in the world, but it's certainly far from the worst.

    SOUNDS

    The overall sound of the Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter isn't going to be anything to write home about, but it does sound pretty decent for the price. The pick ups are pretty decent and between the two of them and the tone knobs, you should be able to get a nice collection of different sounds. Again, don't expect this to be the punchiest or deepest sounding bass out there, but it will give you a nice collection of sounds in between.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter is great bang for your buck if you're looking for a decent 5 string bass. It's pretty easy to play and has a decent enough sound to get by for playing shows for sure. It's not an ideal bass for recording because it doesn't have the fullest sound, but if it was your only choice you could get away with it in a project studio. If you'd like a 5 string bass to have around but don't want to spend too much money on it, the Ibanez Soundgear Series SR305 Iron Pewter is a great in between instrument for a more than reasonable price.
