5-String Electric BassThat Ibanez can build basses, is nothing new. The SR 505BM is a five-string model with a beautifully shaped mahogany body and a 5-piece SR5 Jatoba / Bubinga neck. Bartolini MK1 pickups are known for their finest quality. In addition, there is also active circuitry (bassists are so much more open than conservative guitarists), the Bartolini MK1 3-Band EQ, with which the most versatile sound performances can be realized.

With the fine "Brown Mahogany" finish and the distinctively narrow headstock, some might have already found their dream bass here - at an absolutely fair price!

Best Value for Money Ibanez!

01.05.2015
What an amazing instrument Ibanez has produced over here! I cannot even begin to describe what an amazing piece of instrument this one here is. I have been playing bass for approx 12 years now and currently own the following; Fender Jazz Bass, Tanglewood Jazz Bass and a Yamaha TRBX 505 TBN. Just to spice things ups, I had always wanted to try out this SR505 and finally got to do it.

Feel: This bad boy feels so light you will be surprised, very comfortable to use ad play for (presumably) long gigs. Neck also feels awesome and width of neck, which is thinner than standard 5-stringers, makes ease of access for jamming around.

Body: the mahogany body is perfect, sound resonates incredibly great and the mahogany makes it sound strong and stable. The finish of the body is also wonderful, a rather matte finish to the mahogany, makes this an amazing assett.

Sound: and for the best part of this review. The Ibanez collaboration with Bartolini is why I always wanted this instrument. Always had a soft spot for the amazingly versatile sound of Bartolini, I can play virtually any style I want with this bass. I play funk, jazz, metal, pop-rock. Anything you can think of this instrument is a perfect all rounder which still ensures the player that sound will remain constant.

You need to fiddle a bit around the 3-band EQ to find your ideal sound, however once you do so, it will play like a charm.

For those of you who are looking for an amazing value for money bass which plays wonderfully, look no more. This bad boy here is all you can ask for

Fantastic Bass - Entry level to Expert

I have used this bass for a variety of applications, at home practicing, studio recording, full band jams and live shows and it has performed perfectly for all - without missing a beat!

The body and neck have a beautiful natural finish, without any glossy lacquer, and is quick and very comfortable to play. Overall the level of finish is very high, and this doesn't feel like a "budget" instrument by any stretch of the imagination.

The tonal control and versatility is very useful, although you do need to be careful you don't boost the bass too much with the active EQ. Having the 3/band EQ within such easy reach is a really nice touch though and helps craft a wide range of tones for different genres and applications, whether jazz, funk, slap or metal.

The only particular point which I found a little disappointing is how difficult it can be to get the jack in and out of the socket without having to pull on the lead itself when plugging and unplugging, but a minor point when all is considered.
