    Good timing... I was just checking in to see if you'd followed up on your promise. (Kidding!! :D)

    Seriously: that is one of the prettiest burl tops I've seen on any bass. Congrats, and thanks for the excellent photo!

    Can you comment on how the Aero pups compare to either bartolini or EMG?

    Very nice. I don't think I've ever played a Modulus bass. An old bass teacher of mine had some kind of bass with a Modulus graphite neck and I piddled with it a couple of times. But that was a dozen years ago.
     
  5. I played 5 different Mods. at the store this was the last one the guy handed me, and the most expensive. I immediately noticed the difference in sound with the Aero's. They are much warmer to me than either the Barts or the emg's, which all the others had. They gave a meaty yet punchy tone, not too midrangy. It was the exact sound I'd been striving for by buying countless gadgets, i.e. Sansamp Bass D.I. This bass needs no gadgets to improve sound I plug it straigt in via a JDI Direct box, and it sounds perfect for me. Also It has Bass Boost, Treble boost and P/u sweep/blend. A very simple setup(Per my request). I find myself second guessing myself when I have too many knobs to turn.
