Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 4 HH Bass, Stealth Black

$2,799.00

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this stealthy black Bongo from our friends over at Ernie Ball Music Man. With the exception of the inlays and the logo on the headstock, if it could be made black, they did it! Queue the Spinal Tap references!

Music Man's Bongo bass doesn't really resemble anything else on the market. It's not a tweaked version of a popular design; it's a completely new and different instrument with powerful electronics and wonderfully unique looks that were literally designed by race car engineers.

Embraced by the rock community but really up for anything, the Bongo has versatile on-board controls that'll let you dial in your sound before even looking at your amp's EQ. The tone is beefy and full, with clear harmonics and plenty of punch. It's perfect for players who need that extra kick in their tone. The neck is comfortable and fast with totally unrestricted upper register access.

If you're looking for a powerful bass that'll rock hard and is a little different from everything else out there, this is the way to go.

Manufacturer's Description

The Bongo represents everything a modern bass should be: well balanced, comfortable, resonant, and expressive with effortless playability. The double-cutaway basswood body design is of superior construction and along with a 24 fret finished neck offers unimpeded access for high register two-octave fretwork. The Bongo is available with two Ernie Ball Music Man proprietary humbucking pickups, 4 band eq, Neodymium magnets, and 18V active preamp that delivers a powerful combination of unparalleled tonal diversity.
