The Ultra Jazz 5™ has many of the same qualities as the 4-string Ultra Jazz™, but it’s been specifically designed to meet the demands of 5-string basses. By means of a unique application of Virtual Vintage® technology, the Ultra Jazz 5™ both cancels hum and produces balanced power and frequency response across all five strings. Although designed for passive operation, the Ultra Jazz 5™ also performs excellently with many active onboard preamps.

The appearance of the Ultra Jazz 5™ is traditional, but the wide dynamic range and frequency response of the hybrid magnetic structure allows both vintage and modern sounds. Hum-cancellation is achieved by using Virtual Vintage® technology to suppress 60-cycle noise, with one coil sensing the “B”, “E”, and “A' strings, and the other coil sensing the “D” and “G” strings. While the basic sound of the pickup is similar to the 4-string Ultra Jazz™, it's been adjusted to keep the tonality and response as consistent as possible from the “B” string to the “G” string. Particular care was taken to keep the low “B” string big-sounding without becoming muddy.
