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. The additional humbucker in the neck position only adds to its tonal versatility. 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.
