    Hey guys, I did a search but there isn't much on this topic. I have played an M 2500 but was wondering how it would compare with an l2000. I have heard the MFD pickups are pretty bright but I found the M2000 to not be too bad. I know the specs but was wondering if anyone can comment on tonal differences? Thanks!

    The M2000 has a somewhat more modern sound. The L2K is both passive and active, whereas the M2K is active only. I have a preference for the L2K but both are great.

    I have several L2K's and I've played an M2K in the store. I thought the M2K was great. I was a little apprehensive about the lack of switches and no passive but after playing the M2K, I was sold on it. You can get some very nice tones out of it. I wouldn't say it sounds "modern" but it does have a preamp and the ability to boost some mids a bit is a nice touch.

    I agree that the M-2000 is a more modern sounding bass. I have GAS for a Tribute M-2500 myself.

    Very tempted by the M2000-2500. If the M2K is as impressive as the MV-4, then I'm gonna want one. Not having passive capability doesn't bother me at all.
