Fresh from the Ibanez Bass Workshop is the UB805, a top-notch 5-string upright bass with a killer sound and an incredible feel. Whether you're transitioning from bass guitar to upright or you're a seasoned double bassist looking for a sleek, portable option, this Ibanez is sure to impress. And thanks to the included gig bag and TAMA Roadpro stand that offers authentic upright positioning, players can show up to the gig, set up within seconds, and start jamming.

If you've played a traditional upright bass, you'll know how physically demanding it can be just to get the right notes out. That's why Ibanez designed the UB805 to play remarkably with an easy, natural feel. From its compact wing body to its ergonomic neck heel, this bass has a comfortable profile that doesn't hinder your performance. It even features a lower-bout cutaway that gives players unrestricted access to the upper register, a must-have feature for players who want to play well in thumb position.

In addition to its impeccable playability, the Ibanez Bass Workshop UB805 delivers a stellar tone that's great for jazz, classical, and even contemporary fusion settings, courtesy of its AeroSilk pickup system. This piezo pickup has been specially designed to accommodate plucking and arco techniques, giving it a delightfully authentic sound when amplified. Also, players won't have to worry about the noisy feedback that usually occurs when micing up an upright-the AeroSilk transmits sound flawlessly to amps, PAs, and audio interfaces.

Perhaps the best thing about the Ibanez UB805 is its portability. With its 34" scale length and the included gig bag, players can easily fit it in their car, a luxury that double bassists seldom have. The gig bag also has dedicated spots for a bow and the TAMA Roadpro stand, so you'll never have to make more than one trip from the van to the venue.

Complete with a jatoba fingerboard, an AeroSilk MR5 bridge, and a stunning mahogany oil burst finish, the Ibanez Bass Workshop UB805 is excellent for bassists who want a great-sounding 5-string upright that's easy to transport.
