Caparison Guitars Brocken 5-BASS Bass Guitar - Natural Matt, 5-string Electric Bass with Blackwood/Maple Body, Walnut Top, 5-piece Maple/Walnut Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Active Soapbar Pickups - Natural Matt.

Easy to Play — Easy on the Eyes

The Brocken 5-BASS from Caparison Guitars was created to be the most tonally versatile bass to ever leave the Caparison factory. This instrument strikes the perfect balance between eye-catching design and unmatched playability. The comfortably carved body features a maple core with Australian blackwood wings and a black walnut top to deliver a fat tone with serious power. Your fingers will love playing the smooth-as-glass ebony fingerboard and 5-piece titanium-reinforced neck. Made from maple and walnut, the neck has a matte finish that makes fast runs absolutely effortless. The Brocken's plugged-in tone is supplied by a pair of Fishman Fluence soapbar pickups for extreme sonic diversity. With a little experimenting, you can find the perfect tone to fit your needs. Whether it's ultra-modern active tones or sweet J-style tones you're after, the Brocken 5-BASS can do it. Japanese craftsmanship and attention to detail make this bass more than an instrument — it's an heirloom in the making. All it needs is you.

Unique tonewood combination

The Brocken separates itself from other Caparison models with its unique body construction. This 5-string beast begins life as a simple maple core. Next, a pair of Australian blackwood wings are added to provide a tight bass response and added resonance. The body is topped off by a thick piece of black walnut. The result of this quadripartite construction is an incredibly well-balanced tone with a pronounced punch.

Effortlessly playable neck with compound radius fingerboard

Caparison is known for creating player-friendly necks. Made from five plies of maple and walnut, the neck has a matte finish that makes octave slides easy. You'll love playing the compound-radius ebony fingerboard. It's incredibly smooth, equipped with 27 Jumbo frets, and features Caparison's signature clock inlays. The neck also includes two internal titanium support rods — a feature that seriously impressed the guitar techs. The reinforcement rods don't just make this neck incredibly stable, they add tons of resonance and sustain too. If you're looking for a great-playing neck on steroids, the Brocken 5-Bass is the obvious choice.

Fishman Fluence Pickups

Fishman's Fluence pickups are in a class all their own — both in terms of tone and versatility. The Brocken Bass's active Fluence soapbars are engineered for maximum tonal diversity to cover rock, metal, pop, and beyond. A 3-way voicing switch unearths scooped active metal tones to traditional passive bass voicings. And for those sessions where you need something more classic, a push-pull coil-split unlocks premium J-style tones. All the while, a pickup blend control allows you to find your ideal balance between neck and bridge positions. A master volume and a 2-band EQ (bass, treble) round out the Brocken Bass's impressive electronics.
