PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

Dressed in a sharp Liquid Red and armed with electronics that'll really thump, this behemoth Mayones Comodous 5 is classy, yet thoroughly badass. The Aguilar humbuckers are beefy and powerful for a bass tone that cuts through the mix a bit more. They pump out loads of mid-range goodness while keeping the bass response tight and focused and still providing plenty of treble. Whether you're playing heavy rock with a pick or 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. The Aguilar electronics in this are about as good as it gets for a hi-fi and modern sound, as they can get aggressive, barky, growly, and punchy, whilst maintaining the ability to be tamed, rounded out, and warmed up a bit if you want to sit back in the mix a little more rather than punching through.

With an instrument like this, bass players are able to be a lot more than simply the guys that make the low and rumbly notes in the background. You'll have all the articulation and definition you could ever need. They've achieved a tight and punchy low B-string without having to extend the scale length. While extending the scale length is one way to tighten up those lower strings, in our opinion, it sacrifices tone and feel on most of the other strings. This is a killer 5-string that really plays very effortlessly and evenly across the board.

If you want a bass that can cover modern funk, R&B, and soul tones with lots of growl, bite, and articulation, this will be a master of that. But to show off the versatility of the sounds on this, you'll also find this model very popular in heavier rock and metal settings. So whether you're slapping, playing with your fingers, or playing with a pick, using a clean tone, or covering it in distortion, it's really perfect for any bassist looking for a modern hi-fi tone that can be shaped and sculpted.
