    hi all,

    i haven't posted about my Zon/V-Bass in a while.

    UPDATE:

    i had the prototype hexFX option installed a few years back. AMAZING response...optical pups directly wired - triggering the V-Bass.

    I'm getting the production HFX option in a month or so.

    no dangling wires, no roland pod stuck to my bass!

    here are some shots of its current config:

    Did you install the HexFX kit yourself? If so, was it difficult?

    Very interesting !! I always thought that the lightwave pups would be a better source for modeling than piezos. I would be very interested in hearing soundclips when you get this together.

    What is the total cost?
