I spoke to Kevin Drexler of Sadowsky today about swapping my Aguilar Preamp out of my Modulus Q4 for a Sadowsky Pre. He thought it was a good start towards a more sadowsky-like tone, maybe a tad clearer and most definitely warmer. He also told me that the folks of Sadowsky beleive that the deciding factor on the tone of a bass lies in the fingerboard. Here are the specs of my bass right now: Modulus Q4 Alder Body Chechen Top Chechen Fingerboard Modulus Quantum graphite neck Bartolini Pickups Aguilar Preamp with active Bass, Mid, Treble I know this is a bit of an odd pairing, but after playing this beautiful bass for so long and hearing such great things about the Sadowsky Pre, I am wondering what you folks predict it will sound like! Any thoughts?
