Manne / Mojave 5 Special Active / 2016 / Transparent Red / Bass

Manne Mojave 5 Special aktiv High Gloss, burled top

The Mojave bass model is an asymmetrical body bass. The body shape tends to put the bass in a more upward angled position, appreciated by players who prefer to wear the bass in a higher position.The Mojave has a radiused top face with an Italian poplar top covering the entire body.The circuitry, with the two new blade pickups and the Glockenklang circuit offers the best solution to have the original sound of the basses coming directly from the bass itself passively but also an active control element.

This has been always our “bass” approach:
what you hear should be the bass, not EQ’s. Extreme equalization, both on basses and on amps are a main trend that we do not like to follow, as they sound so unnatural and forced, and leave no room to the actual original sound of the bass, without highlighting the features and tone character of the instrument.

So Manne blade pickups with their coil directly wound on the blades instead of on bobbins gives a fast, pure and detailed sound reproduction. Together with the three-way micro-switch for each pickup (that connect the coils of each pickup in series, parallel, or split) gives you enough sound variations to let you avoid using the active tones. The Glockenklang circuit is a neutral, passive oriented boost that we like to think of as a function for mostly giving “live” corrections on the stage to match the audience, the room and the global frequency reproduction.

The particular main feature of Mojave is having a body that is chambered under the top, thus the weight is reduced, comparedto the solid body models. The chambered body also adds a more midrange complexity to the bass, loosing a bit of power in favor of a more complex sound range.

"Those who expect vintage sounds from the Manne Mojave purebred will not find it. But Manne has developed a rare bass that is an interesting change to the very classic JB model, ideal as an allround-bass, which has sound-wise yet its own personality." Source: Bass Quartlery, issue 01/2011."
