    Product Description

    Comfortable to play with thundering bass tones? Yep, Sire have added a short scale bass to their range! The U5 features a short scale length (distance between the bridge and nut) which not only makes the bass more comfortable, it provides it with a more emphasised low-end. When you combine these characteristics with its modern aesthetics and the build and sound quality that Sire have built their reputation on, the result is a versatile, great value bass that beginners and more experienced players will have a lot of fun playing.

    Short Scale

    Short scale basses have been growing in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. The shorter scale length results in a lower string tension which makes it much easier to fret and bend notes on a bass. This makes it great for both beginners looking for their first bass as well as guitarists who want a bass in their collection but find regular basses uncomfortable to play. The impact on tone is another reason why short scale basses have become popular. With shorter, looser strings you get less high-end frequencies when you play a note which leaves you with a more pronounced low-end. It sounds weird to say but a short-scale bass actually sounds more bass-y! These tonal properties make short scale basses great for more experienced bassists looking for a different sound to add to their arsenal.

    Pickups

    The U5 features the popular P/J pickup configuration. The P-Bass style split-coil pickup in the middle offers classic warm, rounded bass tones while the J-Bass style bridge pickup offers a tighter, snappier, and more articulate sound. These pickups, and the ability to blend between the two, offer a wide range of  range of tones to suit almost any genre you can think of.

    I like short scale basses. This is yet another one, and it’s a beauty. It looks good and it feels good in your hands. Did I mention it sounds great as well? Well it does.

    Great attention to detail, rolled fingerboard is sweet. Slightly more treble than other basses, but perfect for me. A1 bargain.
