    Hi Modulus Q5 folks,

    I recently picked up a Modulus Q5 with Bart's. I'm
    still trying to figure out the preamp controls. I've
    got regular knobs and a third 'double' knob. What
    I think is that in order (from neck to bridge):

    1 - Volume
    2 - Not sure (pup pan?)
    3 - 2 band tone (little - high freq, big - low freq)

    Can someone help me out?


    P.S. It's Black Cherry w/ Grenadillo and gold hardware

    Hey - If it's like mine, and the others I've seen like that, then it'll be vol, pan, mid and stacked bass/treble (treble on the top) - if there's a switch, it's just active on off.

    There's a slim chance that the first two are both volumes - test that... but almost certainly what I said above....

    Great choice of bass!! :oops:)

    Saw a Modulus Genesis bass at Bass Day on Saturday, with that new pick-up system that they've got mentioned on their website - sounded amazing! really nice passive mid control....
