What Ibanez Say:
Despite its tiny body, the UB804 does not sacrifice acoustic tone. The smaller body also contributes to superior portability and handling.
The Aero Silk Piezo system is the Ibanez original piezo system that enhances the acoustic "stand-up" quality of the sound. We tuned this system to provide optimized performance on our upright bass. Whether bowing or finger picking, this specially modified piezo system detects the vibrations of the strings that vibrates in different shapes, and then outputs the signals at equalized level. Like ordinal wood basses, players don't have to switch the electronics no matter which playing style they go. It enables players to switch their playing styles easily and quickly, which widens the possibility of performance. Its simplified control has 1 volume and 1 tone. The tone offers a wide range of control to create various sounds. The UB804 can be used in any style, any kinds of music you play. UB804 comes with a TAMA Roadpro hardware stand. TAMA's engineering designed the stand to securely hold the bass whilst delivering superior stability and durability. Painted in black, the modest appearance of the stand matches the mature atmosphere of the UB804. Also the UB804 comes with a padded gig bag that can carry everything in it, including the bass itself, bow and stand.
