    I've been told that I am the biggest fan of Lakland's ChiSonic pickups. Hearing is believing. Lets see those Chi-Sonic equipped basses! To have one, is to love one!

    It's a passive tone control.

    Is there a place where you can compare sound clips of both the CS and Dark Star pups?

    I love the sound of the US Decade with the DS pups, but my budget says Skyline Decade with CS. I'd be interested in hearing the difference.

    Those 5 string chi's look sweet. What are the dimensions of them? I like the sound of the Chi's that I've tried, and that could be just what my 55-01 needs...

    This picture just answered the question I was about to ask.

    Great basses!

    http://www.lakland.com/audio.htm has a jazz bass with ChiSonics and a Decade with DS, but not a head to head comparo yet. I've had a DS and have Chisonic basses. Chisonics have more mid growl. Sorry I can't help more, but DS's are my second favorite pickup. DS are a little more mid scooped in comparison.
