Description

Five-string electric bass with maple fingerboard, Sandberg pickups and active 2-band tone control, including gig bag

With the Sandberg California VM5 MN San Remo Blue Highgloss the cult bass company from Braunschweig in Lower Saxony presents a five-string electric bass for every musical application. In addition to the classic wood combination of alder for the body and maple for the neck, the bass convinces with powerful Sandberg pickups and an active 2-band tone control.

SANDBERG CALIFORNIA VM5 MN San Remo Blue Highgloss

The Sandberg California VM5 convinces with versatile sounds and classic construction.

The sixfold neck screw connection promotes the crisp primary sound of the Sandberg California VM5.

Classically constructed five-string

For the construction of the Sandberg California VM5 RW, the bass builders rely Sandberg on the traditional specifications and manufacture the body from alder, while the neck is made from hard maple and carries a maple fingerboard. In combination with the sixfold neck screw connection, the five-string has a bright basic tone that also integrates the low B-string with detailed frequency mapping and crisp response into the sound. So that every groove can be played easily on the wide neck, the bass has a comfortable playable "C" profile and a flat fingerboard with a 14" radius.

The combination of power Sandberg humbucker and Sandberg split coil promises a wide sound spectrum.

Versatile sounds

The Sandberg California VM2 is designed for electric sound conversion with two in-house pickups, which give it a broad sound spectrum for every musical style and also reproduce the low B-string with harmonic-precise articulation. The Sandberg Powerhumbucker, mounted close to the bridge, convinces with its powerful sound, whose rich low end is supported by an enormous midrange presence, so that a high assertiveness is given. The Sandberg split coil, on the other hand, which is installed in the middle position, convinces with a fat sound, whose pronounced depths and glassy highs form the perfect basis for pushing bass lines. Thanks to the large steel poles, the pickup also has a natural compression that gives a smooth playing feel. To further adjust the sound, a perfectly tuned 2-band tone control is also on board.

The lightweight Sandberg Machine Heads promise a precise tuning and prevent top-heaviness.

Hardware from Sandberg

In addition, the Sandberg California VM5 is equipped with high-quality hardware from our own house. The Sandberg Bridge 5 sits on the body, whose massive weight contributes significantly to the harmonious sound of the 5-string. In addition, each string rider can be adjusted in three dimensions, so that in addition to intonation and string position, the string spacing can also be perfectly adjusted for every playing style. On the headstock, five lightweight Sandberg Machine Head tuners provide precise tuning.
