Same great basswood body and dual humbuckers as the 4-string Bongo with the added range of a low B.
A smaller, comfortable cousin of the StingRay.
Created by Ernie Ball, one of the most recognized names in all of music, Music Man 5-string electric basses represent everything that the brand is celebrated for. Using only the highest quality materials, tried and true building techniques, and advanced electronics, these instruments were made to perform. If you're looking for a bass you can trust with your sound, go with Music Man. Designed with professional players in mind, every one of their basses brings something different to the stage. Made famous early on for the StingRay 5, with its enormous hum-cancelling humbucking pickups and grizzled low end, Music Man quickly expanded its offerings in order to make sure they had something for every style of bass player. If you're ready to up your play, take some time to explore each of the guitars offered here.
Are you after a classic look with a smooth sound? Then you should start your search with the Sterling 5 Electric Bass. Featuring an ash body, an active 3-band preamp, and a huge Music Man humbucker pickup with a hum-cancelling phantom coil, this bass also has unique 3-way switching (from series mode to single coil to parallel mode). Modeled after the original StringRay, this bass is shorter and narrower, making it easier to play for smaller musicians. On the other hand, if you're here for a departure from the traditional look, but still want that recognizable Music Man tone, you have to check out the Bongo 5 HS Piezo Bass. Sleekly styled with an ash body, this bass guitar features hot-rodded electronics with a powerful humbucker/single coil pickup configuration, a piezo bridge with nickel-plated saddles, and a high-gloss finish to complete the look. From the conventional to eccentric, Music Man has you covered.
The list of performers that have chosen to take Music Man with them on stage is staggering. Cliff Williams of AC/DC, Ross Valory of Journey, Dave "Phoenix" Farrell of Linkin Park, and dozens of other top artists all swear by the sound and quality of these electric basses. Easy to play, and with a look and sound that instantly stands out, a Music Man 5-string electric bass should be at the top of every musician's list.
