Pulverizing Tone from Nordstrand
Precise, powerful, and full of punch. The EHB1505 is performance assured with Nordstrand's Big Split pickups. Explore a rich tonal palate that ranges from terrifying lows to pronounced highs, all whilst containing unruly frequencies. That means less unwanted noise, and more clarity.
The EHB1505 is perfect for any style of playing. Unlock your creativity at every fret position. Whether you're riffing up high or laying down low, the big split boasts fat, clean tone that won't go unnoticed. Its hybrid timbre is easily adjustable too, utilising and EQ bypass switch for passive control on the treble pot. Dial your sound further with the vari-mid 3 band EQ for that added touch of nuance. Articulation, always.
It's easy to see why Ibanez have teamed up with Nordstrand for the EHB1505. Built from a shared ethos of innovation, the pickups and bass design work hand in hand to deliver an iconic bite that will snap at the heels of anyone in its path. Take your bass playing to places you never thought possible.
The Future of Design
Ibanez aren't content with just doing what's already been done. They strive for creative revolution, pushing the boundaries of traditional bass playing. The EHB1505 is no exception. Take your bass on stage or to the studio, and never worry about knocking your tuning. Ibanez have found the key to flawless tuning stability, and it all starts at the top of the neck. The headless design ensures rigid intonation, pitch perfect tuning, and enhanced playability that will elevate your abilities.
Classic design perfected. The EHB1505 promises maximum vibration transfer, wide intonation range, and smooth tuning action from the MR5HS bridge. Built especially for the EHB bass series, each independent bridge piece is attached directly to the body, raising the bar even further. Meet every demand of your string spacing needs. The adjustable saddle and +/-1.5mm spacing is the answer you've been waiting for. Full flexibility, no matter how you play.
Contoured for comfort. It's not all just about fancy new hardware and game changing design. Ibanez know that the fundamentals of bass are just as important. The EHB1505 feels like Excalibur in your hands. Lightweight, and born for true expression. Sculpted from African mahogany, panga panga, and walnut, the neck and body seamlessly integrate for unhindered playability. Its smooth curves are ergonomic, strain-free, and give you full access to every aspect of your bass. No limits. No problem.
Strong and Sturdy
If you're serious about music, you need serious durability. The EHB1505 is built to handle the extreme conditions of playing live. Don't settle for anything less than 100 reliability. Meticulous in every way, Ibanez have crafted a 9pc neck with graphite reinforcement rods. This prevents warping, bowing, and breakages when you're on the road. Your next gig will be legendary.
In addition to naturally stable hardwoods, the EHB1505 boasts heat treated tolerance for unparalleled protection against temperature fluctuations. No matter how humid, cold, or adverse your playing environment might be, your bass won't suffer, and neither will you.
