    One volume knob to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them......

    Never noticed it was that big in the old pics! Have you decided if you're keeping the ramp on or not?

  12. Well! I don't like your bass :D

    By the way - How are the barts sounding with your bass?

    Thanks guys. I am on the fence between the Bart Classics and the Duncan, they are both good pickups just different. The Barts have more of a punchy/burpy/polite Bona sound while the Duncans have a somewhat bigger sound, better slap sound, but no burp. I'm going to try the Barts for a while.

    It looks stacked, but it also looks bigger (diameter) and blacker....truly an evil knob for an evil man ;)

    fodera do a stacked volume/passive tone pot for all that where wondering.

    i really like that bass Will, probably one of the few monarchs that does it for me. what made you switch out the duncans for the barts?

  17. Nice Will! Since there is so much visually going on with that beautiful top, the clean look of the Barts (without the exposed pole pieces, really looks nice, and works nicely with the look of the ramp also. Nice!

    You description of the Barts vs. Duncan's is very similar to the impact both those pickups have in the Lakland 94 Series basses.... the Barts being burpy and punchy but quite dark sounding, and the Seymours being sizzly and grindy, but rather scooped (although the Seymours uses by Fodera are not quite as aggressive as the 'off the shelf' Seymours that Lakland used prior to their developing their own pickups).

    I would think with your tone, and your using the Focus, that the Barts would really sit right where you want that bass to be... warm, fat, burby, mellow but articulate. Very nice bass.

    You actually came to mind last night. I was doing a loud, aggressive 11 piece funk gig with the Markbass and Celinder Update... I was in heaven, but for just a second thought.... 'Will would hate this a lot:D !
