Bossa BUS-5

To most music enthusiasts, the word “bossa” suggests cool and breezy—like Stan Getz’s saxophone or Astrud Gilberto’s vocals. With Japanese luthier Toshio Setozaki’s latest offering, the BUS-5, Bossa is liable to change the word’s connotation among bass buffs. The company set out to create a warm, punchy-sounding bass with the BUS-5. It features a lightweight body with a deep cutaway and Bossa’s own 18-volt 3-band preamp.
