You'll Be a Fan of This Ibanez 6-String Bass!

The Ibanez SRFF806 multi-scale 6-string electric bass delivers troves of tonal expression that's ideal for the melodic bass player. Its ash body keeps your output evenly balanced with just the right amount of sustain, and the multi-scale design provides a great feel and dynamic sound, with its shifting scale length that widens the lower your play. A pair of Bartolini BH1 pickups capture your performance for clear and powerful amplification, and 3-band EQ control gives you all the necessary means to forge your sonic signature.

zZounds Bass Specialist Martin demos the Ibanez SRFF806 and SRFF805 in this video:


More Notes for More Expression

If you're bored of the more traditional 4-string setup, then let your fingers run wild on this axe's six strings -- each stretched over 24 frets of melodic madness. Those two extra strings go a long way if you want to rumble lower or soar higher. The sleek body contour with a deep cutaway lets your fingers hit the upper registers with absolute ease.

Innovative Multi-Scale Design

The feature that really sets your Ibanez SR800 apart from other bass guitars is its innovative multi-scale design. This orientation provides a longer scale length on the lower strings and a shorter length on the high strings. This allots for a more consistent attack and tension that you'll instantly feel with your first couple of notes. If you've never tried a multi-scale instrument, you'll be impressed by how comfortable the SRFF806 is to play!

Clear and Punchy Tone

The dual-coil configuration of the SRFF806's pair of Bartolini BH1 pickups deliver a punchy yet articulate output that's easy to shape. These pickups utilize a custom preamp and an easy-to-tweak control layout for a wide range of dynamic output. Along with volume and pickup balancer controls, you have a passive tone control at the treble pot, three-band EQ controls, an EQ bypass switch, and a mid-frequency shift switch with 250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz settings.

Ibanez SRFF806 Multi-Scale Bass

To the newcomer, the multi-scale concept may appear a bit unusual, but the biggest surprise may be how comfortable players become within a minute or two of playing the instrument. The different fret-to-bridge distances enhance tonality, creating a better sounding bass. Previously, these instruments were only available from boutique bass builders, but now Ibanez is proud to introduce the SRFF806: multi-scale bass at an affordable price.

The goal of the multi-scale system is to give the better tension of each string. The tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. On the SRFF806, the scale length is 33.6" on the C-string side, expanding to 35.5 at the low B.

Although the multi-scale neck can appear intimidating and unnatural, nothing could be further from the truth. When looking down at the neck from the players perspective, the exaggerated fret layout seems to almost disappear and actually feels quite normal. The slant of the multi-scale ergonomically coordinate with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.

The SRFF806 is a quality instrument designed for the experienced, seasoned musician. Its Ash body is attached to a 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga SRFF6 neck with a Rosewood fretboard, Medium frets and custom mulit-scale inlays. The Mono-Rail V Bridge is the perfect match for a multi-scale instrument, allowing for independent positioning of each strings "mini-bridge" section to providing excellent intonation and superior string vibration transference. Electronics include Bartolini BH1-5 pickups, for a full range warm punchy tone, and a 3-band EQ w/ Bypass switch and Mid-Frequency switch for complete sonic control.
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great bass!"
Overall: This bass is great! The frets being fanned seemed like it would take some time to get used to but it didn't at all! The first time I played it, it felt normal! I couldn't even tell the frets were fanned, plus they look really awesome! The bass didn't have any blemishes and the fret work is perfect! I wasn't expecting this bass to be this high quality and the Bartolini pickups sound awesome! I would highly recommend this bass to anyone.
