Sandberg TM5 Natural Ash, RW


Sandberg TM5 Natural Ash, RW

This is the New body shape for Sandberg and its a beauty. It is incredibly comfortable, light weight and perfectly balanced. This Ash body TM5 uses a Delano MM humbucker in the bridge position and a Delano J in the neck position, both running through a switchable 2 band active preamp. Great feeling neck, maple with Rosewood fretboard and shaped with a super fast profile. Incredibly versatile tonally delivering everything from modern snap to old school thump. Made in Germany to exacting standards, there are few basses on the market that can offer these features with this build quality and for this price. 

The Sandberg California TM5 was voted as Best Bass Guitar 2015 in Guitar Magazine's "GEAR OF THE YEAR".

The write: "The stand-out feature of our bass of the year may well be its aged finish, but that’s far from the only reason that the Sandberg California II TM5 sits proudly at the top of our chart of low-enders for 2015. This mark-two version sports a remodelled ash body, with the original’s J-Bass-inspired outline replaced by an intelligent and classy variation that essentially downsizes the lower half of the body.

Happily, the TM5 is an ultra-comfortable player, too, thanks to the maple neck’s shallow C contour, while Sandberg’s own preamp is hitched to a pair of Delano pickups, which uncork an excellent roster of high-quality sounds. There’s growling width and definition for rock and pop, earthy and acoustically nuanced old-school vibes and a fat, snappily-defined, modern funk tone if you should want it.

Even the slightly excessive high-mid zing that occasionally rears up doesn’t detract from the overall quality, or from the sheer fun you’ll derive from playing the TM5 for a long time to come."
