PowerSpan Dual Coil Pick-Ups
The Ibanez Bass features a set of PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups, designed with exposed stainless steel pole pieces to deliver a high output with exceptional clarity. The PowerSpan pickups offer an enhanced response and a strong signal to create a tone rich with harmonics and dynamic expression.
3-Band EQ with 3-Way Power Tap Switch
One of the most unique features of the 4-string bass guitar is the 3-band EQ with a 3-way power tape switch. This design allows you to shape and craft the tone of your bass with maximum control, providing the ability to mould every nuance of your sound. The 3-way power tap switch offers you three different tones, from humbucking sounds and single coil notes, to a low-end enhanced single coil option, creating an incredibly versatile instrument that will keep up with any playing style.
AboIbanez want every one of their guitars and basses to provide massive value to the user. From their budget Gio range all the way up to their high end prestige model everything that comes out of their factory is high quality. The SR300 may sit at the budget end but you will not believe the versatile range of tones available thanks to the new PowerSpan pickups and active preamp.
Performance Based Design
No one wants to play an uncomfotable instrument and Ibanez knows this. The SR range of basses are slim, lightweight and are carved carefully to sit close for extra comfort. They also use extremely slim necks that are unlike any other bass you may have played. The entire point of this design is that it is non restrictive, it does not get in the way of you being the best player you can possibly be.
No one wants to be locked down to their style due to their instrument. That is part of what makes this bass so good for the money. Not only do you have a set of brand new PowerSpan humbucking pickups with open poles but you also have Ibanez’s own custom 3 band EQ with power tap switch. That switch is the real magic as it lets you go from humbucking (modern) to single coil (traditional) sounds instantly and even lets you access an enhanced single coil mode which punches up the low end.
Here’s what Ibanez say about the SR300EB
