    Wow - black on black.

    I'd like to own a VJ again.

    Is it passive?

    Beautiful bass. I have a Modulus flea bass that I love and I think my next bass is going to be a Modulus VJ.

    I was watching my Pearl Jam Live at the Garden DVD today and thinking about how sweet these VJs are. Nice purchase.

    I went to a high end bass shop a while back and played everything in the store (spector, zon, lakland, others ... ). The two standouts were an MTD 535 and a Modulus VJ. Those are GREAT basses.

    It sounds MODERN, and bright, and clear, and aggressive, and EXTREMELY punchy.
    It has a particular voice... hate it or love it...
