Mayones Viking 5 5-String Bass, Violet Horizon


Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Mayones dealer. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you're in for a real treat! This one is finished in their blue horizon which is a beautiful fade that shows off the figuring of the swamp ash and gives the bass a unique aesthetic.

Dressed with looks to kill and armed with electronics that'll really thump, this Viking is ready to conquer everything in its path with a take-no-prisoners mentality! The Bartolini pickups are extremely punchy and tight. They pump out loads of mid-range goodness while keeping the bass response focused and still providing plenty of treble. Whether you're playing heavy rock with a pick, laying down a groove fingerstyle, or putting your thumb to the bass for some slap action, this bass has enough versatility that it can cover many genres and playing styles with ease. This is great for the bassist who wants others to actually take note of the bass tone. With a bass like this, bass players are able to be a lot more than simply the guys that make the low and rumbly notes. You'll have all the articulation and definition you could ever need.

It's really perfect for any bassist looking for a modern hi-fi tone. In passive mode, and favoring the neck pickup, you can dial in a more vintage-like sound as well. There's not much this fierce warrior can't do.
