Man, I just got back from playing a Modulus at Mars and I gotta say I'm blown away. Killer tone and hella phat rumble! I definatly know where you Modulus lovers are coming from now. I also played my bass (ESP LTD 5) through an ampeg amp and I found out that the only problem with the tone i get normally comes from my crummy practice amp. That ESP really is a nice bass! anyway, later..
