Sire U Series Short-Scale Basses

If you're a beginner searching high and low for your first bass, or an experienced player looking for the next great addition to your instrumental arsenal, a short-scale bass can be an equally perfect option. Their simple ease of use makes them instantly accessible for newcomers and professionals alike - resulting in a noticeable surge in popularity over the last few years.  

They combine power, comfort and a shorter scale length (obviously), with the latter characteristic leading to a lower string tension. This makes it far easier to fret and bend notes. Your tone will also benefit too! This is because the strings are looser and shorter, meaning you'll find reduced high-end frequencies and a punchier, more developed low-end.
