    Curious as to how you Marvin users are mounting your PU jacks. Pictures anyone?
     
  2. Sorry for my ignorance but what is a Marvin Tailpiece?
    Pics?

    Regards,

    I just have mine attached to the thing with cable ties (those locking plastic strips), but yesterday I was talking to Bob Hurst and he said that he punched two holes is his bow quiver, and then attached the pickup to that. If you're going to have a quiver anyway, that seems like a good option.
     
  5. Yeah I zip tied my full circle to one side of it, getting it not to buzz was a little more difficult. and also it creates weird cord angles.

    I stuck my Full Circle jack to the bow quiver with velcro.

    To answer my own question, I got the Marvin TP and mount the screw of my Stat-B jack holder through a hole in the felt damper that comes with the TP. Works fine.

    So what's your verdict on the TP?

    Most notable change is increased brightness tonally and a new wolf tone on the open A string. That seems to have moved from the Ab WT the bass had previously. I tamed the new wt with a towel between the TP and the top of the bass. I'll probably switch back to my standard TP as I think I prefer the darker sound.
