    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 - Crystal clear b-string, comfortable neck, sweet tone, cuts through any mix, light weight
    Cons - Not that come to mind
    Absolutely beastly sound from these things. Sick action, and of course no need to adjust it ever!

    Very clean low B. Can't say I'm a 5 string player, I'm really not into them. But if I was, I'd own another q5.

    Pros - Durable, light weight, super sonic, super sustain, and an amazing body
    Cons - Can be more bass than necessary at times
    Wow!


    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.


    But you don't have to take my word for it.

    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.

    Pros - Weight, looks, sustain, playability, pretty much everything
    Cons - price (but everybody always wants to pay less)
    This bass is awesome. It plays great, sounds great, looks great. The graphite neck doesn't move, all kinds of tone control at your finger tips, "sustain", what else can I say!!
