SANDBERG Basic Ken Taylor 5 EB Translucent Blackburst Highgloss

Five string Signature electric bass with two Powerhumbucker pickups and active 3-band electronics, including gigbag

With the Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor 5 EB Translucent Blackburst Highgloss , Sandberg presents the Signature electric bass of the Peter Maffay bassist, who has been using the instruments of the Brunswick bass company since 1993. Equipped with a 35" scale, swamp ash body, bolted five-piece maple-mahogany neck and two Sandberg Powerhumbucker pickups including active 2-band tone control, the five-string presents itself as a straightforward workhorse for fat grooves.

SANDBERG Basic Ken Taylor 5 EB Translucent Blackburst Highgloss
SANDBERG Basic Ken Taylor 5 EB Translucent Blackburst Highgloss is a straight 5-string electric bass with a versatile sound and high playing comfort.

Classically built five-string with high playing comfort

For his Signature model, Ken Taylor chose classic woods together with the bass makers of Sandberg. The body of the Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor 5 is made of swamp ash, while hard maple and mahogany are used for the six-bolt neck. In combination with the ebony fingerboard and the long 35" scale (889 mm), the 5 string thus delivers a balanced fundamental tone with a fast response and even sustain, which also reproduces the low B string with precise definition. When playing bass on the wide neck with a "C" profile, every pattern and groove comes easily.

Fat sound with high variability

For the electrical sound conversion of the Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor 5, Peter Maffay's bassist chose two powerful Sandberg Powerhumbuckers, which provide him with the perfect basis for his virtuoso bass playing. With their powerful sound, smooth response and high assertiveness, the pickups reproduce every note precisely and also push the low B-string with rich punch and defined tone culture. Thanks to the split switch, the humbuckers can also be optionally operated as single coils, providing particularly brilliant sounds. An active 3-band equalizer is also on board for further sound shaping, whose musical tuning always provides harmonic tonal characters even at extreme settings.

Ken Taylor

Born in London in 1952 as the son of Jamaican emigrants, Ken Taylor came into contact with music at a very early age. First he played as a rhythm guitarist, before he discovered the still young rock music for himself through Jimi Hendrix. Almost at the same time, Ken Taylor made his first contact with the electric bass, on which he developed his virtuoso and band-dependent style through persistent practice. As a particularly reliable sideman, Ken Taylor was able to immortalize himself on recordings by John Mayall, Brian May, Bruce Springsteen and the Scorpions, among others. In 1993 Peter Maffay hired Ken Taylor as a permanent member of the Peter Maffay Band, with whom he has toured and recorded countless times since then.
