As long as my playing was confined to my bedroom, the separate volume controls for neck and bridge pickups didn't bother me at all, as I can stop and fiddle with bass or amp controls whenever I feel like it. In a band setting, where I seem to need to tweak my volume up/down more frequently, and in real time, having to adjust two controls to both change volume and maintain consistent tone is a pain. Is this just me? My other bass is a Pedulla Rapture (1 PU) and I really like the simplicity of its one volume control. Is there some trick for using separate volume controls? I'd much rather have vol/pan than vol/vol and have sent an email to Mike to find out if this can be easily retrofitted.
