Big and deep is one thing. Add clarity and that elusive vintage warmth meet the Mercalli 5. We pulled it off by using a five-piece neck, lock down bridge, and innovative passive pickups. This earthshaker delivers strong fundamental notes on the low B with sustain and punch youd expect from basses costing many times as much.
These open-back tuners feature a large gear and a 1/2³ diameter post for smooth tuning and increased durability. The 1/2³ diameter post also has another advantage: smaller posts cause flatwound strings to break when you wind them¦ no problem with our tuners.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
SIX-BOLT NECK PLATE
Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment. And for convenience, the two small screws hold the plate in place when removing the neck.
PICKUP PAN CONTROL
This control allows you to blend the two pickups with one knob. Roll in the bridge pickup for more midrange punch, or bring up the neck pickup for more low thump and open highs. Dialing in the perfect tone has never been easier!
