    I think most people will give you their favourite (mine is the H/S). Have you tried them all and can't decide or just looking for initial feedback? The best I can recommend is to try them all and let your ears decide :D

    I've got an HS and the variety of sounds you can get out of that thing are unfreaking believable. I have an HH Bongo, had and HS Bongo, and I'm sorry I got rid of the HS. Don't know how to put into words the difference btwn the sound of the 2, but I'm sure someone else here will. Seems a bit more versatile.

    I also don't see why anyone would not want the extra pickup. The Stingray sound is there, and then you get a whole bunch more to add. When you start gigging with the additional pickup you'll have no doubt whatsoever that you made the right choice. Can't imagine regretting it, while it'll be easy to regret not getting it.

    H for me, but thats only because you cant get the 2 band preamp on any of the dual pickup models. Otherwise I'd go for the HH.

    HS....adds the versatility of another pickup, still with plenty of room for slapping and popping.

    4 string, I've had them all, and went back to all single H.

    5 string, didn't like the single H, so either HS or HH worked for me.
