There’s more to making a great 5-stringed bass than adding one string and changing some parts and measurements. The real challenge is the low B string. To fully understand what I mean, you need to experience the Steam 5 live – then you will know how powerful and balanced a low B can sound at its very best.

Our unique thermo treatment process of the wood plays a crucial role in making an exceptional sounding 5-stringed bass. The body

of Steam Classic 5 is made of thermo treated Finnish alder. The 35″ scale neck is crafted of thermo treated maple. You can choose your fretboard from our familiar options: rosewood, ebony, thermo treated arctic birch and thermo treated maple.

We’re a custom shop, inside out. We have tons of options to customize the Steam Classic 5 perfect for your liking. Please read more about tone, playability, wood species, neck profiles,

frets, pickups, hardware, finishes and other options from the specifications section of this website.


For your inspiration – here are some 5-stringed Steam Classic basses we’ve made. When you plan ordering your own custom bass from me, feel free to ask me about any type of custom options!
