The Sterling also features hot-rodded electronics: active 3-band preamp, 2 Music Man humbucker pickups with hum canceling phantom coil, and unique 3-way switching (both coils in series mode, single coil, and both coils in parallel mode). Schaller BM tapered-post tuners. Volume, treble, mid, bass controls. Music Man includes a hardshell case with the 5-string Sterling Electric Bass.

            Comments about Music Man Sterling 5 HH Bass:

            This is my go-to bass. I can play this bass at any gig that I do and feel extremely comfortable all night long playing any genre of music. The sound is amazing regardless of the amp that I am using and this dude plays like butter - every time. Once we played a snowmobile festival (our guitar player was wearing shooting gloves to play) and my Sterling didn't complain a bit! Inside, outside, rock, funk, alternative or jazz -doesn't matter - when I need a bass that I can play, I take my Sterling. This is the best bang for the buck bass out there, hands down!

            I love this Bass, Musicman Sterling 5HH. I am a new player and find the action on this Bass along with the pick-ups make this an easy Bass to play. It has an awesome sound and great looks.

            Sweet Bass

            By Totalbass

            from Sandpoint Idaho

            Comments about Music Man Sterling 5 HH Bass:

            I've had this bass for a few months now gigging regularly. I'm glad I opted for the Sterling as this axe is still heavier than my Yamaha or my Carvin. I really love this thing-havent played anything else since I've had it! One thing that took me by surprise was the fact that my maple board came with no more than maybe a tung oil finish. It feels great, but doesn't take long to get really grungy.The build quality on this is fantastic only needing minor setup adjustments. The electronics are awesome but wish there was a bypass switch to have the option to go passive-think I might add one. Overall, I highly recommend this bass and feel that I got my moneys worth!

            Simply the best

            Comments about Music Man Sterling 5 HH Bass:

            EB Musicman is one of the best manufacturers for attention to detail. This is the second bass for me from them and both are immaculate in workmanship.Playability is extremely comfortable on this model with a clear fundamental tone. The 4th pickup position on the HS model is my favorite.Clearly a no brainer for a quality made and playing instrument.

            Comments about Music Man Sterling 5 HH Bass:

            This has got to be the best designed basses ever made. I have been playing for 22 years and have yet to play anything this amazing. The pickups are great with a different tones in each position better than the last. The neck is ultra fast and very vesitile. I would highly recommend this bass to all who are looking to step up to the next level. Rock On!!
