S.U.B. Series Bass Boast Great Tone Shaping Features.
The tone is shaped by the onboard active 2 band preamp. Controls for volume, bass and treble offer maximum flexibility in finding your sound. Full cut & boost of bass & treble frequencies. The wide range of tones, guarantee you will find your sound, for any musical situation.
We want your bass to last a lifetime. Superior design and construction are key to delivering a solid instrument that will accompany you on your long musical journey. All S.U.B. basses employ a superior 6 bolt neck joint. The 6 bolt neck joint, designed by Music Man, offers strength, stability and great tone transfer. The neck stays in position and won’t shift under heavy load. The neck heel allows easy access to the higher end of the fingerboard and is unobtrusive. Allowing your hands to freely move about the neck with ease. Rest assured, your neck will stay put while your fingers roam about.
High Output Humbucking Pickup
The high output humbucking pickup was designed for clarity and true reproduction of the basses natural tone, with minimal coloration. 2 rows of large magnetic pole pieces pump the strings information into the pickup, feeding the 2 band active preamp. Tones can be aggressive, wild or mild. Its up to you to find your sound. 3 screw adjustment allow for more accurate positioning of the pickups angle & height, allowing for more precise adjustments to match the strings angle.
Satin Finished Neck
The feel of the neck is everything. Your fretting hand is touching the neck 100% of the time you play your bass. We developed a super smooth satin finish for the back of the neck. This finish is non glossy, never get’s sticky and always feels fresh. The tinted satin finish looks great and gives the instrument a classic look and feel.
All stringed instruments need some basic adjustments from time to time. Neck adjustments can be intimidating for some. S.U.B. makes it easy and simple. S.U.B. Series guitars & basses have an easy to adjust neck. No specialized tools are needed. The small thumbwheel located at the end of the fingerboard makes it easy and simple. You can use a small screwdriver or the included chrome bar to easily and quickly adjust the neck to your preference. No need to remove the neck or strings, you can make the adjustments on the fly. Easy, quick, convenient. More time to play, less time for adjustments.
Top Mounted Output Jack
No more fumbling trying plug in the cable. The output jack is conveniently placed on top of the body. Located on the control plate, the jack is secure and won’t easily pull out or get damaged when placed in a guitar stand. We use a heavy duty jack that is designed to withstand plenty of use and abuse.
The 2 band active preamp is powered by a 9 volt battery. The easy to open battery compartment makes battery changes easy and simple. Simply flip up the battery door, unclip the 9 volt from the clip and clip in your new battery. Takes no time at all. The battery is easily accessible on the back of the body. Your battery should last for several months under normal use. We recommend you unplug the cable when not in use, to conserve on the batteries life span.
ABM cabs are designed to compliment the wide tonal range and power of the range of ABM heads, delivering no compromises on tone or performance.
Rated at 300W RMS, the 8 ohm ABM-115 is loaded with a single high powered Ashdown BlueLine 15” driver.
Constructed from high-grade birch ply and protected by a tough, buffalo leather cloth covering, metal corners and steel grilles, ABM Cabinets use high quality handles in favour of inferior flip handles, which can become loose and rattle after years of use. Vibration from the cabinet is reduced by the use of heavy-duty rubber feet.
