Product Description

Since 1987, bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and the speed of the fastest neck available have made Soundgear standard equipment in every genre. As music evolves, so does the Soundgear concept. The SR500 family is one example of this evolution. The SR505 model features a fast SR5 neck (bubinga/wenge), a mahogany body, and Bartolini MK1 pickups. Onboard Bartolini 3-band EQ provides precise tone control.

Ibanez SR505 Features

- Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
- Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
- Active EQ's perfectly matched with the right choice of passive or active pickups.

Sleek, sexy and sonically versatile are the reasons Soundgears can be found in every kind of music from gospel to goth to garage rock. Bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and fastest neck available have made the Soundgear standard equipment in the most controlled studio environments and the most out-of-control live performances.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (112 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If your looking for true sounds, well built, not to heavy and a very affordable Bass, then you came to the right bass, Ibanez SR"
Sound: I just received my SR505 today, and the tone, mids, bass, and 3 ban EQ is just awesome. It's everything that you need in a bass. Ease of Use: It has a very easy axess for the perfect sound. If you know exactly what sound your looking for, you can adjust while playing ! Quality: It is made very well. This is my second Bass, and let me tell you, the action from the neck, just make it so much easier to control and play ! Value: From the sound adjustments, and the playing action, it should be a lot more. Manufacturer Support: No, I just received it and from the specs of the SR505, I believe I won't have to. The Wow Factor: I've had my eyes focus on the Fender active 5 for quite some time now ( 1-1/2 year) and after purchasing the SR505, I must say that it is a very fine piece of craftmanship, and it is hot on the Fenders trail ! Overall: I think that it will be a few years before I decide to buy another bass, unless I get a good deal on a "Lakland", but the SR505 is here to stay. My Schecter Custom 5 will be the first to go.
Style of Music: Gospel, Jass, R&B.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "don't pay more! at least try this one before you buy!"
Sound: i"ve owned this bass for about 3 months now and i have to say it is one of the best sounding basses i've ever played in my 35 years of playing. i would have given it a 10 rating if it weren't for a couple of dead notes.maybe after the elixirs go dead i'll change strings and do a few adjustment and cure the problem.i play through an ampeg svt 3 pro with the 410 he cabinet and a mesa boogie 15 and it rocks! on my other gig i have an ampeg ba115 and i get an awsome tone through that rig too along with my ibanez soundgear 100. i love the bartolinis but the thing i like so much is that it plays like a dream and it is so light. it's also quiet and haven't gone to the studio yet but i'm sure it will put a smile on my face there too. Feature: the 3 band eq is fantastic...i couldn't ask for any better.controls are very quiet..excellent neck. i wasn't sure about the finish on the body at first, but iv'e grown to really like it, but be careful with it because i'm sure it could easily be scratched. battery is easy to change, unlike my g&l 2500 (american made) which i've owned for 10 years now. Ease of Use: no complaints here. manual is pretty basic. easy to get the sound you want. didn't take me long to dial my sound in. was pretty much set up when i bought it. in fact i haven't done anything to it except install some strap locks on it. Quality: i don't believe the quality is as good as my g&l because it is built like a tank but it weighs more too. i don't bother taking my other bass to a gig. i feel confident that the ibanez will not let me down.i guess because i've owned my other bass for so long and no problems at all i feel like this bass will be just as reliable. however, any product put together in indonesia,china or korea has to leave you wondering sometimes if it can actually stand up to a good old fender or gibson. theres just something about this guitar that just "feels" of less quality. but so far it's not let me down. Value: so far i would say this is a very good price for this bass. i've owned a gibson,fender,yamaha,schecter still own my g&l and this one plays and sounds just as good as the higher priced basses. Manufacturer Support: never dealt with them. The Wow Factor: feels great,plays great,sounds great and it's very lightweight Overall: i'm not the person who owns a lot of guitars like some of my friends do. i feel like i will keep this guitar for a long time.the only reason i would get another bass would be if this one were to start giving me major problems or feel like it wouldn't be dependable. i chose this bass because of the reviews that i read ,the weight and the playability of the instrument. i played a lot of basses and this one is only one of few that i really enjoyed playing. some of the higher priced basses didn't even come close to this one.
Style of Music: new country/southern rock
