Music Man S.U.B. 5
This bass makes the United States has a poplar body, a handle Saddle painted and a rosewood fingerboard with 21 boxes. The mcanique? Cest of MusicMan, the true, the road was like what! At the micro level, there are the good old pav MusicMan in the bridge position affording CONTRL volume, bass and treble on a passive electronic (on my MODEL, but given the criticisms of the active version that grows too much the Aiges, I do not regret my choice

Trs honntement, apart from the pickguard which is a little cheap (but will change!), I find this low trs well finished and have great style (well Acesta a history go ts!).


In terms of use, the handle is trs enjoyable, I really like the matte finish paint that does not drape (useful for someone who tends sweat like me!). Small black dot: the handle is only 21 boxes and setting up dates trs, which is not gnial for bassists loving Aiges.

At ergonomics, this bass is a bit heavy, but balance, once positioned, it does not move and the immense space DGIG by prsence a mic makes perfect for the slap. As against those who are used to build on the neck pickup, it takes some adjustment to get used to build on the unique micro situ plutt towards the bridge.


At the? This is not a low trs wide range of sounds (electronic passive, one micro ...).

on the other hand, ds one branch, one finds immediately that clbre MusicMan sound so typical with mdiums Submitted trs, of a single color and sound in terriblissimes slap! Trs snapping sound, even the fingers, yet without the Aiges dchirent our ears all the time. In fact the sound is even so particulire same brand Unplug this bass sound like no other! I love it!

Finally, for lovers of beautiful well-deep grave, you must have a good equalizer on the amp to compensate for the low sound range of this bass, but with some rglages, this low we round out a beautiful sound all that honorable .


I use it now for two weeks with my cots Cort Josh Paul.

I prfre in this database? Features and its sound if the vast space above the microphone available for the slap!

What I like least? The huge space above the micro (lol) for the game to the fingers, if one has the habit of relying on the neck pickup, there really is an adjustment period.

Before buying this bass I tried a lot (Fender, Warwick ...) and for this price range, this and Cort Josh Paul are my two favorites, both at the instrument itself same and also in quality-price ratio.

With exprience, I would do this choice, or else I would take another MusicMan (a Stingray if my budget allows, but I think it's really expensive so that finally trs There is no such Difference of a SUB ...)
