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.
