Ibanez SR506 6-String Electric Bass

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 SR506 models feature a fast SR6 neck (bubinga/wenge), a mahogany body, and Bartolini MK1 pickups. Onboard Bartolini 3-band EQ provides precise tone control.

SR Series 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 (121 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "EXCELLENT BASS for 1st time 6 stringers!"
Sound: The sound of this bass is amazingly versatile! I had never played bartolinis before this bass yet alone the MK1 series but I am blown away by the sound. I tried many different brands of 6'ers (including Spector, and Warwicks) and I have to say that this bass stood out..even with the dead strings that it was equiped with (Elixirs yuck!!!). Just had the bass's action and intonation set up and its probably THE best bass Ive ever played now. My sound can vary from deep, nasty funk to straight ahead jazz (with nasty rock in between!) and this bass more that delivers. Feature: LOVED the electronics, VERY flexible palette of sounds! Quality: Love the oil finish on the bass, never had a bass with one before, although mine had some 'dry' spots under my neck pickup which were quickly rubbed out when I brought her in for a complete setup. There also was an imperfection in the back of the neck by the headstock (a pretty rough spot between the wenge seams!)..that also was taken care of at setup time. I would have to say that beyond its excellent sound palette, the smooth satin neck is amazingly playable...much better than some VERY expensive 6'ers I've played. Value: ABSOLUTELY the best value around, I don't think you can find a better bass (with all its features) for the money. The Wow Factor: I just LOVED the look of the hand rubbed oil stain, made the bass look so much more expensive than it is!!! Overall: This is by far the best bass that I've ever owned, the only improvement that I'd recommend is a neck-thru redesign...but that's my taste.
Style of Music: a little of everything, although I lean toward funk-related progressive rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ibanez SR506 6-String Electric Bass"
Overall: This little bass sounds amazing. It's extremely light and has a small body in comparison to what I'm used to playing. Those MK1s bite through ANY mix. It's a well-balanced bass and for the money....I think it would be pretty difficult to find a better sounding bass in comparable price range. I think it does very well in the studio as a recording instrument as well. I just don't think there's that much difference in the several thousand dollar basses and some of the less expensive ones...this bass is a very good example and supportive of that statement. It's all about preference, but this little bass will not disappoint anyone.
Style of Music: Urban Contemporary Jazz, R&B, Gospel, Pop

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
