Made with hard rock in mind.
The Damien 5-String Bass was built for bands that love to rock hard. The list of artists and songs on Schecter Guitars' home page leans towards the heavier side of things. Acts like Misfits, Sean Yseult of White Zombie, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Tommy Lee and Seether are but a sampling of Schecter's guitar and bass users.
Aesthetically, this 5-string electric bass has an arched basswood body with a lower cutaway, with a black satin finish, black hardware, a dark rosewood fingerboard with black pearl flying bat inlays. The Damien Bass is definitely not geared toward your bubblegum pop band. 24 jumbo frets, two EMG HZ series humbuckers and 4 control knobs for volume, blend, and active 2-band EQ with selectable treble frequencies give you the playability, sonics, and electronics to shred with the best of them.
If you like it "none more black," the Damien 5-string should be the bass in your hands next time you take the stage for a fist-pumping showdown.

simply amazing bass, i played one today at the local musiic stroe thru a warick blue cab 60. The sound was bright on the highs and the lows....were so clear on this bass no muddy-ness on the b string eq was fun to play around with only reason i gave it a four on the featuers was quite simple its just black. i have played many bass in over my 2 year run with bass this is by far the best bang for your buck.
I probably wouldn't even know about this guitar unless I had blown a string on my Yamaha during sound check the night before a gig. I wandered into a local music store to pick up a fresh set and there she was, absorbing the light with that matte finish and looking grim. I normally don't care for black guitars-everyone has a black guitar-but I picked her up and played her. I don't have a lot of experience with 5-string basses, but the Damien felt comfortable and natural in my hands. I plugged her into a 200 watt Kustom combo with twin 10"s and was just blown away, and that reaction was nothing compared to when I got her home and hooked up to my Groove 310C. The EMGs mean business. The 6-bolt neck provided killer sustain. I had to have it, so I bought it. Anyone looking for a quality 5-string in this price range need look no further. The only thing that could make it better would be a string-through-body design. No bassist playing rock or metal could be disappointed with this instrument.
The best bass i've owned so far. She looks mean and sounds it too. A relentlessly fast neck for a bass. I play out of a SWR Big Ben and Goliath III with a working pro 900 head. That alone is enough to drown out almost any lead guitarist and the EMG-HZ pickups dont help. My last word is go get it regardless of if your used to 5-strings or if you want to try it.
Most people looking at this bass would probably be playing heavier music. And that's ashame because I don't think that is it's strength. This bass has a really great tight fundamental tone across the whole neck, ans a focused yet warm sound with a nice amount of growl. It doesn't have a broad piano bass sound or a very thick boomy tone. It almost sounds compressed, in a good way, in that the tone is even with good sustain. It reminds me of a cross between a Fender Jazz and a Rick 4001 with a b-dass bridge.
Played this bass at a guitar center in town and compared to a lot of other basses i have played this one was a little dissappointing. Compared to a lot of other schecter basses this one just doesnt compare. I even played it through a markbass amp but there was no helping this sound. There was a lot of fret buzz and the tone was just not good. After playing this bass i picked up the schecter studio 5 and played it through the same amp and they just didnt even compare.
I just got my Schector Damien and it rocks!! You fingers slide through the Frets like a dream and you'll almost be sure to hit the frets you want where you miss the strum and just tad the strum a bit you'll still hear the note you wanna hear!! I can't wait to use this on my next gig!!!
