Ibanez SRX595 Electric Bass



Who needs an instrument just to do the same-old, predictable rock 'n roll stunts? Performance is about creativity - occasionally in sudden, unexpected bursts that slam in the face of convention, and the Ibanez SRX595 is designed for players who need a bass to keep pace. The New 3-way switch allows for very fast and wide on-the-fly changes of tone, while the 2-band EQ or PHAT active bass boosts are a wonder of simplicity, letting you play more bass (and less controls). Finally, a lightweight body, original Soundgear fast neck, and wide string pitch puts you in complete control of your instrument, giving you the chance to create your music at warp speed, if so desired. So hold on tight, it's going to be a thrilling ride.

Ibanez ATK300 Electric Bass Guitar



For bass lovers who want the big sound of traditional basses, the Ibanez ATK300 is sure to be a huge crowd pleaser. It features a massive, light ash body for thunderous bass tone and huge sustain without overwhelmingly heavy weight. The unique triple-coil pickup and Tone Character Switch offer easy, rapid, and radical changes in tone, while the pickup and control placement facilitate easy slapping and popping. Optional thru-body stringing is available for increased low-end and sustain.

Not everyone needs a sleek, narrow necked bass like the Soundgear. Which is why we first came out in 1995 with the ATK (short for “attack,” the aggressive ATK’s defining characteristic). Unlike the Soundgear, the ATK is big–with the big, bold tones you get from a traditional big Neck and big body. But the ATK is no one-trick trad workhorse. It’s also versatile and comfortable thanks to its unique electronics and physical layout. In other words, the right choice for blues, hard rock, country players and anyone else who wants every single plus of a traditional bass and more.

Ibanez SRX590 Electric Bass Guitar



The Ibanez SRX590 is loaded with cool features like extra powerful, passive full range pickups with exposed pole pieces that offer extreme high output. A 2-band EQ or PHAT active bass boosts let you play more bass (and less controls). Finally, it's hard to miss the black pearl neck and body binding, along with a flat finish that allows more body resonance.

Ibanez SR400QM Electric Bass Guitar



The Ibanez SR400 continues to prove why SR basses have become the preferred choice of rockers everywhere. Features a thinner neck with thinner nuts than traditional basses, blending seamlessly into a lightweight, balanced, comfort-contoured body. Also includes active EQ’s perfectly matched with the right choice of pickups. In other words, playability is the last thing you'll have to worry about.


Since 1987, trends have come and gone. But the fast and versatile Soundgear basses continue to lay down the groove in every style imaginable in every venue possible. Now in 2007, Ibanez offers a vast array of different Soundgear models including Neck-thru-body, fretless and left-handed. The modern Soundgear narrow neck is perfect for 5- and 6-strings so extended range travel is as physically comfortable as it is musically exhilarating.

Ibanez ATK305 Electric Bass Guitar



Our Price: $529.99
List Price: $706.65
You Save: $176.66

The Ibanez ATK305 features a big five-bolt, All Access Maple Neck, along with a massive lightweight ash body, providing big, big tones and huge sustain without being a pain to lug around. Also includes 22 medium frets and optional thru-body stringing for increased low-end and sustain.

TECH TIP: Re-Amping Basics for Guitar

TECH TIP: Re-Amping Basics for Guitar
By Craig Anderton

Recording your guitar part used to set its sound in stone. Although you could add processors like EQ, reverb, decay, and the like while mixing, they altered the basic sound, but couldn’t provide an entirely different sound.

However, re-amping is a way around this. Maybe you wish you’d recorded through a Vox AC30 instead of a Fender Twin – no problem. There are two main options for changing your sound after the fact: standard re-amping, and using software plug-ins to do re-amping.

Standard re-amping is the more low-tech solution. While recording, you split your direct guitar signal and send one split to a multitrack recorder track (usually through a preamp or other buffer to prevent loading down your pickups), and the other to a guitar amp for monitoring. Monitoring through an amp is important, because the direct signal won’t have any distortion, sustain, or other characteristics that you may need for the right "feel" when playing.

To change the amp sound while mixing, you pad the direct (straight) track down to a lower level suitable for feeding a guitar amp, play back the track through the amp, and re-record the amp sound to a separate track. Another use for re-amping is to add ambience to a direct-recorded guitar part by re-recording through an amp in a particular acoustical space.

Plug-ins (software programs that work with a computer-based host program) are inherently useful for re-amping if you send your straight guitar sound directly into the computer, then get your tone by using the plug-in. But note that recording through a plug-in requires a computer-based host and interface with low latency (delay through the system), otherwise you’ll hear a delay as you listen to the program’s output. Although some guitarists can tolerate a reasonable amount of delay, if it’s much more than 10 ms it’s very distracting. You also need an audio interface with an input designed specifically to accommodate a straight guitar signal, or a preamp if your interface offers only a line level input.

When you record into the computer, the host program records the dry guitar signal, then applies the plug-in to alter the sound. As a result, you can change the plug-in sound at any time, or even use a different plug-in altogether. This means you can make your decisions about guitar tone at any time, even right up to the final mixdown.

Re-amping or using plug-ins does have some limitations. If feedback is part of your sound, there’s no way to create a feedback loop from an amp to a direct-recorded track. This is one reason for monitoring through a real amp, as it can create feedback that vibrates your strings, and the effect on your strings will get recorded in the direct track. Still, this isn’t as interactive as feeding back with the amp that creates your final sound. Plug-ins also have their own limitations; although digital technology does a remarkable job of modeling different amp sounds, purists will always find some subtleties that may not translate well.

Nonetheless, in situations where you anticipate having to make radical changes to your guitar sound while mixing, re-amping is a powerful technique – and now there are more ways to do this than ever before.
