The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.
Bartolini’s renowned MK-1 EQ provides powerful yet transparent boost along with its trademark crisp high-end. The MK-1 transfers the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also provides a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.
The emphasis of the Wenge and Rosewood combination is on tight and defined midrange that complements the bright and expansive tonal nature of the Mahogany body for an ideally balanced sound to round out the bass spectrum.
The new matching headstock provides a tasteful and classy visual aesthetic for an ungraded high-end look and feel.
The Artisan B5 Plus MH features Hipshot Ultralight Tuners as standard equipment for tuning accuracy and stability.
