OVERVIEW

More compact, but with huge tone.

As with its 4 string counterpart, the Sterling 5 boasts a big sound in a smaller more ergonomic design. 9 volt active 3 band EQ, 3 position pickup selector switch and a ceramic humbucker with hum canceling phantom coil come standard on the Sterling 5, allowing this bass it to cut through any mix. Comfortable and compact the Sterling 5 can cover a wide musical landscape all with the precision craftsmanship and attention to detail you come to expect from Ernie Ball Music Man. Includes a hardshell case.


Grab this bass that's light and easier to play. Order today.
