    If they wanted to really be game changers they'd make the Reflex basses cheaper.

    Wolfgang bass?
  6. Oh my god EB need to stop making new models. Apart from anything else it just makes the last one look like it didn't work.

    How about, instead of releasing 8 basses in a 5 year period, do 5 years R&D and come out with one stunning new bass?

    Hey at least they're trying...I just wish they'd release a 100% positive bass. I know it isn't what they've made they're money on. They do have the passive SUBs...but...

    They are on fire these days making new and exciting instruments. They aren't for everyone but why not applaud them for trying new things and keeping the ones that are successful.

    I finally bought a Bongo last year and it really is a fantastic bass. Having said that, I still prefer my Stingrays.

    It's probably the Gamechanger which is slated to debut on the Reflex.
    Finally something different from a major maker. God help us if Sterling's innovative spirit weakens and he starts making Jazz bass copies instead.

    That's cool but I think people on the forum linked are just getting freakishly excited. I'll have to hear it myself to really even comprehend it, let alone cream over it.

    I have done a lot of experimental wiring mods to my basses, loved and unloved alike, and almost every time I return happily to the stock passive configuration, but apparently that is boring and needs "fixing" so we can all have 100 sounds in each of our basses, that all sound 99% alike. I hope this isn't just another one of those sort of solutions to non-existent problems.

    I see a Reflex in my future.....bugger, that's what I said about the Dingwall AB, and the Fodera, and there was a Ken Smith as well....

    Call me the Crow, because I like shiny things.

    Maaaaaaan...... I miss playing Contra.:bawl:

  17. Yeah pretty much. For those who don't know its a system to change the analogue signal path digitally, like the BD deluxe for example. So you can have any combination of coils, polarities, series/parallel, active/passive yaddah yaddah programable from the computer. No digital processing, just digital control.

    Sounds like MM and some other companies simultaneously developed the same sorta concept. I think Ernies had this in the pipeline for a while, but because of the legal issues has had to keep it under raps.
  18. Why not just get a ray and make it passive?

    If you're the kind who KISSes it then it's probably not for you.

    To me, the iPhone potential alone is exciting. :D
