Product Description

The new A5 Plus SCMS is Cort’s bold foray into innovative modern bass concepts such as a single-cutaway for enhanced body-neck balance and multi-scale for a longer scale length on the bass strings (from 35.5”) to shorter scale length on the treble strings (to 34”). The result is a state-of-the-art bass for the most discriminating musician.

The single cutaway body shape improves the body-neck balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the high frets while the multi-scale produces more tension for the low strings, resulting in a tighter and more focused lower register sounds. Classic body tone wood Swamp Ash is mated with exotic Spalted Maple top to strike an ideal balance between the traditional and the modern - both in looks and in sound. With 3 pc Maple and Panga Panga neck, the strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of Panga Panga, resulting in superb playability, feel and tonal definition. The Panga Panga fingerboard has characteristics of Wenge and produces a tight and coherent sound that mates extremely well with the instrument’s multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction. When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction.

The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs. The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.  Bartolini’s renowned MK-1 preamp provides powerful yet transparent boost along with its trademark crisp high-end. The MK-1 transfers the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also provides a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern acti

ve sound or an organic traditional passive sound. A5 Plus SCMS is equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners (classic 20:1 tuning ratio) that is made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, resulting in 30% weight reduction over other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning accuracy.

Comes with hard case.
