VM5 Black High Gloss
Holger Stonjek is a man that lives and breathes bass guitars and has been building basses since 1986. He has done it with such massive success that Sandberg is now one of the biggest brands in the bass community.
The focus from Sandberg has always been to produce high-quality instruments at an accessible price point. Hence you get a great and well-balanced bass for the money every single time when you choose Sandberg.
The VM5 is in some ways a very classic instrument where the focus is on a beautiful warm sound with a lot of body to it. The body construction is made of alder combined with the ebony fingerboard you get a very precise and percussive mid-range to cut through the band.
The pickups are 1 split coil and a humbucker from Sandberg that form a very organic relationship with the bass for a natural and beefy tone.
In other words you can go from the more classic sound of the single coil to the more powerful and punchy sound on the bridge pickup. The preamp is Sandberg’s own 2-band EQ Active/Passive, which plays a pivotal part in that classic Sandberg sound.
All in all a really great bass that will make most bass players feel at home after playing their first note on it.
