A quantum leap beyond conventional hi-end basses.

An exquisite bass that combines advanced technology with the finest craftsmanship. Stunningly quilted maple tops its premium alder body. Bartolini pickups with NTMB active EQ serve up the ultimate in tonal range and control. Its neck is a hi-tech marvel, an ultra-rigid D-shaped shell made from dozens of hand-formed layers of aerospace-grade, epoxy-impregnated carbon fibers and fitted with a fast, ultra-smooth phenolic fretboard. The neck's miraculous strength-to-weight ratio and extreme resonance produce a remarkably unclouded, even tone. It also transmits sound faster than wood, so articulation and attack dynamics are dramatically enhanced.

  • Quilted maple top over an alder body
    Bartolini pickup with 3-band NTMB active EQ
    Phenolic fingerboard

  • The Best

    As reviewed by David Waldon on 6/7/2010

    This bass never fails to amaze. It's so easy to play, has the best definition 'killer B' string around. I've never failed to have an engineer tell me it's the best recording bass they've every heard. A dream to play, incredible versatility of tone, and great looks all add up to the best bass experience out there. Well worth the money, it will raise your game!

  • Bass used by masters

    As reviewed by BasicSituation on 6/7/2010

    The Modulus Q5 is an amazing bass. If you play rock or heavier styles this bass is for you. The carbon fiber neck gives it a specific tone that I love. Phil Lesh(The Greatful Dead) plays a 6 string version, and Mike Gordon(Phish) also calls a Quantum 5 his main instrument. I do not own one any more, but while I was an owner it did me well. The 35" scale helps the Low B to be tight and boom. A great bass to call your own.

  • a gorgeous instrument

    As reviewed by Tim on 6/7/2010

    this is truly worth its price tag. the lows are chunky and smooth while the mids and highs are still clear and pronounced enough to cut through any mix. the instrument itself while somewhat heavy is a well balanced precision instrument perfect for any number of playing styles.
