    I know they don't get a lot of love, considering how many people come up to me at shows with the same 2 questions:
    1)what kind of bass is that?
    followed by...
    2) that's a CORT??

    I always make them play it, and 100% of the time people are amazed that it is INDEED a Cort and plays really well. SO I thought it was time for a Cort club. not to mention I just wanted to be the first member of SOMETHING...
    so show your Cort's with pride!!!!Stock, Modded, broken into pieces, it doesn't matter!!!

    I have an old Cort headless bass that was given to me. It is cracked and in very poor shape. It is really not in playing condition, but it has a KILLER tone!!!

    I had an opportunity to get an Artisan B4 stupid cheap at a GC clearance and passed on it. It really felt and sounded good, and I wish I would have pulled the trigger. :bawl:

    Sweet - a Cort club!

    These basses deserve much love!

    I had a Cort GB-94, which was a seriously nice bass....I just didn't dig the MM pup in the bridge position very much.

    I now have an Artisan A4 neckthrough. Wow :D When I bought this bass I had six others. Now I only have it and my fretless!

    It's beautiful.

    The only thing I want to do to it is maybe replace the EQ in/out switch with active/passive.

    ;)

    I definitely want active/passive switching. I think I'll do it tonight.

    Alot of people refer to the switch on the A4 as active passive, but it's not. It just defeats the EQ. You're still running through the pre amp, just that the EQ knobs have no effect.

    The funny thing is I've read some reviews that say "the great thing about it that it sounds the same in "passive" mode as in active mode with the EQ set flat"

    No kidding! LOL That's because it's still in active mode, but has the EQ set flat.

    I want true passive, which I will play most of the time, but with the ability to switch to active if I need to give particular frequencies a boost.

    Of course, I'm not commenting on what your c4z has...I've never played that bass.

    Just that contrary to many people's belief, the switch on the A4 is not active/passive, but simply EQ on/off.

    For any users that are skeptical, try playing your A4 with no battery in it with the switch set to off. It won't work ;). In a true passive configuration of course the bass will work without a battery.

    :)

    i know, i used to sell the things :)

    the c series has a cheaper preamp than the a series and it is a true active passive, (the volume pot is push pull) rather than the a and b series where its just a eq defeat
