    The approach to this bass is unlike anything I've ever played. The ingrained resistance I've had to other basses problems (action, attack, neck issue etc. etc. ) are just NOT THERE. So at first i was over compensating and finding the Q5 a little over whelming to play. Now that I've got hours under the belt, this is the best instrument I've ever owned.

    I've been an Alembic player for many years. However, after seeing Phil Lesh play his Modulus with Furthur, and coming across a Q6 at Bass NW, I made the plunge. I totally agree with your assessment of the Quantum series. They are amazing basses. Much easier to make sound good compared to the Alembic. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Alembic, but the Modulus stands up to it on equal footing.

    Now you need a Quantum 6 and a Quantum 5 or 6 fretless and don't forget you also need a TBX also.

    Q6 s are monsters. I'm sure you know Dave schools plays one of them. I'm already starting to hear - for example hitting harmonics - similar sounds to his playing
    I'm going through an Eden head > ampeg cab and it sounds huge.

    What differentiates. Quantum from a quantum tbx? I wasn't clear when doing superficial research.
