Variax Bass 705 provides instant access to sounds never before available in a five-string configuration. Its simple, stand-alone operation offers 24 authentic bass sounds all in a single instrument. Its output can be sent direct to any standard bass amplifier, mixing console, or recording device.

"Variax Bass 705's simple layout combines the best of passive and active electronic controls in one practical, problem-solving, pro quality system," said Rich Lasner, director of instrument product lines, Line 6. "No other bass enables artists playing live or in the studio to instantly call up a five-string version of a classic 4-string, vintage 8-string, or acoustic upright. Plus, the low B-string extends the synth sounds into a range only keyboard players are normally able to reach," explained Lasner.

Variax Bass 705 uses Line 6's patented guitar modeling technology to offer bassists instant access to models of a world-class collection of the greatest bass instruments and sounds in recorded history. Variax Bass 705 features an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and sealed chrome tuners. Custom-fitted gig bag and direct box with 1/4-inch and XLR outputs included. Available in black or sunburst finishes.

MSRP:

  • $1,399.99 Black
  • $1,449.99 Sunburst
