Bass Player Mag comments: "...produces a range of tones most single-pickup basses can't match... The heart of the axe's double-edged tone is a Bartolini DNTBT-18 preamp, which features separate concentric bass and treble controls for each coil of the 70MM5HX humbucker. The pickup actually has four coils; each side has a split arrangement to provide a humbucking effect. With this system, you can move between coils via a blend knob and set up separate EQ for each coil. There are also two 3-way EQ switches, each with flat, mid-boost, and bass-boost/mid-cut settings. Two batteries inside the copper-foil shielded cavity supply 18 volts for the preamp....trademark asymmetrical neck shape and a very flat fingerboard radius will appeal to even the smallest of hands...It sure is a blast to play with the Growler's electronics. We were able to get a super-J tone from the rear coil (with the mids boosted) and blend in the front coil (with the "slap" curve) for an all-out funkathon."
