Product Description

Since 1987, bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and the speed of the fastest neck available have made Soundgear standard equipment in every genre. As music evolves, so does the Soundgear concept. The SR500 family is one example of this evolution. The 5-string version is a huge upgrade in playability and tone. The SR505 models feature a fast SR5 neck (jatoba/walnut), a mahogany body, and Bartolini MK1 pickups. Onboard Bartolini 3-band EQ provides precise tone control.

SR505 Series Features

  • Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
  • Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
  • Active EQ's perfectly matched with the right choice of passive or active pickups.

Sleek, sexy and sonically versatile are the reasons Soundgears can be found in every kind of music from gospel to goth to garage rock. Bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and fastest neck available have made the Soundgear standard equipment in the most controlled studio environments and the most out-of-control live performances.

Awesome bass!

It is very well made. The knobs and tuning keys are solid. craftsmanship is excellent.

Best features would have to be the neck and sound. Very fast and smooth neck. its perfect for my small hands. minimum effort is needed so you don't tired easily. The sound is killer. Great sounds gives you more confidence.

The tone coming out of this bass is killer! I know my bass very well. i can make it sound punchy, growly, slappy or mellow. I play rock, latin, and funk with no problem.

playability on soundgear basses is awesome. this bass in no exception. like I've said, its got a fast neck. the feel is great. its mahogany wood so this is heavy bass considering its a soundgear. most soundgear basses i've played with are lighter but this one sounds way better.

The bartolini pickups are incredible. very hot and powerful.

The finish is awesome. The wood grain feels very smooth and it looks great.

The action was good out of the box. I brought it down just a hair lower. It's just a matter of preference.

great gig bass

I've had this bass for 5 years and it has never let me down whether giging or recording!!

The acton Needed a little work but once i got it right i never had to touch it again also the Elixer strings that it came with are Awsome!!! to this day they are all i use on this (and all my other) guitar(s) a Little pricy and sometimes hard to find (they don't have them here and they should) but well worth it.

Good sound could be better but not at all bad

Like i said the Elixer strings feel like butter you can thunp on them all night and never know it also the neak is very confortable which is great for those long nights

nice well balanced

no clear coat really stands out on stage

Good Sound For Price!

Very dependable bass.

Your general opinion of this product.

The bass is a great sound for an active bass and you will not deny the price for it.

The neck makes it great to play...it feels good and the controls are not hard to get to. Its just so great to play this bass.

I get all the snap and popping out of this bass. It sounds good across the boards!

Everyone that has noticed me with the bass love the finish of it!

Action was great out of the box!
