Can anyone tell me what this is?
Modulus Quantam 6
Dave is one bad m'fer.....I've been to many Panic shows and actually had the pleasure to meet him one time.
Yeah...that guy can play. I like his tone alot. Nice big tone.
Love his playing, don't love his tone. It sounds great when processed as on "Light Fuse, Get Away", but direct from mics at the shows I've heard I'm not a big fan. Too scooped.
Never seen him live. His work with Gov't Mule turned me onto him.
Recorded his tone is soooo thick.
Personally I think his live tone is as good as it is on record. I think his tone always sounds kinda scooped.
can any one tell me what the wood on the bass pictured is?
Probably maple top.
I've seen Panic a BUNCH of times over the years (first show I saw was '91). Dave is a fine player indeed and, though I've never met him, from the interviews I've seen & read, my guess is that he is one cool dude in person. Probably humble as hell and a blast to be around.
Chechen or Bubinga top
Love Dave Schools and his tone. Almost saw Panic in Chicago last year, but couldn't swing tickets. Next time...
re Schools' tone, to my ears that's a very classic Modulus tone. What sounds perhaps "scooped" is the fact that there isn't a pronounced "bump" in the mids; instead, it's a more even spread. Hence the seemingly paradoxical "scooped but thick".
Aha! Modulus is it! It takes courage to play with that kind of definition.
It is a walnut topped Q6.

Love me some Widespread Panic. Been going to 10-15 shows a year since first seeing them in 1988. Only made it to 7 this year though ... an "All Time Low" LOL
Dave Schools is the reason I bought my Modulus (although I got a Q5). His tone is incredible and when he lays it down, he lays it down.
Here is his rig...at least it was a few years back.
Took me forever to find out what he used as far as preamp, amps, etc.....
I have seen Panic more times than I care to admit and traveled the country doing so...but the guy is a madman on bass. I met him after a Gov't. Mule show at Janus Landing in St. Pete, Florida....really nice guy. I wanted to steal his bass........
Edit: oops, didn't see the link had already been posted...haha
Modulus is now on the GAS List:
