Michael Kelly Pinnacle 5

The Pinnacle 5 is designed for bass players who demand an eye-catching instrument that delivers an enormous range of sounds. Thoughtful design details created an evenly balanced instrument which feels comfortable whether you play standing or sitting. The deep cut lower horn offers easy access to the upper reaches of the neck. The swamp ash body provides a balanced tone and the ornately-burled poplar top gives the instrument a distinctive look. Maple and walnut are layered to create a rock-solid five-piece neck, and the slim shape inspires confidence while performing. Diamond inlays and glow-in-the-dark side markers add a special touch to the rich ebony fretboard.

The Pinnacle 5 is able to create that perfect tone, whether in a concert performance, recording in the studio, or simply knocking out tunes in rehearsal. Two custom-wound Rockfield MDC5 humbucker pickups provide a modern, fat sound with potent midrange punch. This increased output of the dual coils produces a full, meaty voice that can sing with amazing sustain. Each pickup is equipped with a dedicated coil-split switch. Splitting the pickup coils to single-coil configuration will deliver a more airy, classic tone.

The push-pull Master Volume knob engages the active preamp. In the active mode, the MK Custom 3-band EQ offers simple control shaping of the instrument’s sound. Selecting the passive mode calls up an authentic “old-school” tone. It is this inclusive combination of pickups, coil-splitting, pickup blending, and the active MK 3-band EQ that assure an endless range of signature sounds for each player.

The diecast MCN5 bridge allows individual side-to-side saddle adjustments for variable string spacing by up to 1.5mm to optimize the instrument to your playing preferences. An exposed spoked truss rod wheel at the base of the fingerboard makes any needed adjustments quick and easy.

Un excellent rapport qualité -prix que cette Michael Kelly. Cette basse n’a rien à envier à d’autres 2 à 3 fois plus chères. La lutherie est excellente, le manche est hyperconfortable malgré sa largeur. J’avais repéré ce modèle sur des tutos YouTube et….je ne l’ai trouvé disponible rapidement que chez Muziker au meilleur prix.

Personally I am delighted with MK Pinnacle5. This bass is surprisingly good and my terms of comparison are Musicman Stingray 5, Warwich Thumb5, Ibanez EHB1505MS. Firstly the neck is the best built and comfortable I ever seen, gives long note sustain close to the neckthrough, sturdy B string and ebony freatboard is effective in eliminating squeaks. Geometrically the bass is very well balanced and shaped to be comfortable when singing stand. Electronic part (a little unknown as brand), works flawlessly (no noise) and the possibility to switch pickups to single coil separately together with balance between is very useful and really works. This bass is very good for any singing technique (punchy slap, sweet fingers style, growly pick) Would you buy it again or recommend it to a friend for purchase? Yes absolutely.
