Sorry for the intrusion in advance but curiosity has got the best of me and I'll take whatever heat is coming. As far as I can tell this doesn't belong anywhere down here (but neither do I). Regardless I want some feedback from URB players about both of these pieces. Did a quick search and drew a blank - suprise suprise. I've got a Lightwave fretted 4 (optical pickup) that I've had for a couple years actually and it's been great wall art but not much use for anything else I could tell. But it actually puts out really decent URB tone. I really don't play jazz but I've been listening to a jazz station lately and so pull the Wave down and continue to be suprised at the results. URB is my favorite bass tone although I've never touched one. Anyway, makes me wonder if this is something any guys that actually play URB have noticed at all? The other thing is the Art MP Tube Mic pre, one of which is headed this way, and I really know nothing about except that all the guitar players complain about how well it works for bass (but not guitar - which I guess it's intended for mostly) and seems would be particularly applicable to an URB. So any experiences there? Guess that's it.
