Product information - SANDBERG California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss

Five string electric bass with Sandberg pickups and active 2-band EQ, gig bag included

With the Sandberg California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss , the renowned bass company from Brunswick in Lower Saxony presents a five-string electric bass for every musical application. Besides the classic wood combination of alder for the body and maple for the neck, this bass convinces with the powerful Sandberg pickups and an active 2-band EQ.

SANDBERG CCalifornia VM5 MN Creme Highgloss Back
The six-fold bolted neck promotes the crisp primary sound of the Sandberg California VM5.

Classically constructed five-string with alder body

For the construction of the Sandberg California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss, Sandberg's bass builders rely on traditional specifications and build the body from alder , while the six-bolt-on   neck is made from hard maple and carries a maple fingerboard . This five-string has a powerful deep tone with a striking presence in the treble range, so that even the low B-string is integrated with detailed frequencies and crisp response into the sound naturally. To make sure that every groove flows out of your hand easily when playing on the wide neck, the five-string has a comfortably playable "C" profile and a flat fingerboard with a 14" radius .

SANDBERG California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss Body
The combination of a Sandberg Powerhumbucker and Sandberg Split-Coil promises a wide sound range which can be adjusted easily via the active tone control.

Versatile sounds from Sandberg pickups and active electronics

For the electric sound conversion, the Sandberg California VM5 is equipped with two in-house pickups , which give it a wide sound spectrum for any kind of music and also reproduce the low B string with harmonically precise articulation. The Sandberg Powerhumbucker , mounted close to the bridge , impresses with its powerful sound. Its rich low end is supported by an enormous mid-range presence making for high assertiveness. The Sandberg Split-Coil , on the other hand, which is mounted in the middle position , convinces with a fat sound, whose distinct lows and glassy highs form the perfect basis for pushing bass lines. Both pickups also possess a natural compression , enhancing the playing feel. A perfectly tuned 2-band EQ is provided for further sound adjustment.

SANDBERG California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss Headstock
The Sandberg tuners on the headstock convince with high precision and low weight, which avoids top-heaviness.

Hardware from Sandberg

Furthermore, the Sandberg California VM5 MN Creme Highgloss is equipped with high quality hardware of their own making. The Sandberg Bridge 5 is located on the body and its massive weight contributes significantly to the harmonious sound of the 5-String. In addition, each string tab is adjustable in three dimensions , so that not only intonation and string action but also the string spacing can be perfectly adjusted to suit any playing style. Five lightweight Sandberg tuners on the head plate ensure precise tuning.
