"Looks great Sounds great and has that unique sound"
Pros - Unique modern sound
Cons - expensive
I love the way this bass sounds when you dig in. It has almost like a compressed growl that cuts. I can always pick it out in a recording or a youtube clip blindfolded. These basses have a knack for response that clear but cuts with a unique voice. They are durable and with a 5 or 6 you never have to worry about neck needing a set up or constant tuning after weather changes.
Pros - Durable, light weight, super sonic, super sustain, and an amazing body
Cons - Can be more bass than necessary at times
This is one of the nicest pieces of gear I have ever owned. Its a masterpiece of an instrument. Its extremely sturdy and tone wise its a beast. It cuts through any mix as a worthy adversary to a percussive instrument and is a melodic harp like instrument with clarity from the stock bartolini electronics loaded in all the way up the neck.
I have played mine for a year now, gigs are always a pleasure with this bass, it took me five years to afford one, but so worth it.
I would recommend this bass to any player who is curious about graphite necks, there is just nothing better than the engineers at modulus applying this to an instrument. When I pull mine from the case and I feel that cold glassy neck with the back of my thumb its like hold the pint glass to my favorite beer. Love this bass.
Pros - Balance, tuning stability, versatility, clarity, many others
Cons - None
I agree with Charles' review above. Modulus basses are fantastic. I prefer the neck profiles of MTDs (asymmetrical), but I like everything else about Modulus basses better. Great tone, very solid, good-looking, playable, and tough as hell. These are perfect for gigging and sound so crystal-clear in the studio, too. I highly recommend them.
