SNAMM05: Line 6 launch Variax 5 string bass
Variax Bass 705

The new Variax Bass 705 is a custom-crafted, contemporary instrument that according to Line 6 uses their patented guitar modelling technology to offer bassists instant access to models of a world-class collection of the greatest bass instruments and sounds in recorded history. Line 6 claim that their new Variax Bass 705 is a breakthrough product for any bassist, as it provides instant access to sounds never before available in a five-string configuration including vintage and modern electric basses, an acoustic upright, plus synth bass tones. Its simple, stand-alone operation offers 24 authentic bass sounds all in a single, professional grade instrument with an output that can be sent direct to any standard bass amplifier, mixing console, or recording device. Rich Lasner, director of instrument product lines at Line 6 had this to say about the new instrument, “Variax Bass 705’s simple layout combines the best of passive and active electronic controls in one practical, problem-solving, pro quality system. No other bass enables artists playing live or in the studio to instantly call up a five-string version of a classic 4-string, vintage 8-string, or acoustic upright. Plus, the low B-string extends the synth sounds into a range only keyboard players are normally able to reach.�
