    Fine looker you have there. I love my Quantum (even with only four strings :bassist: ).

    Hope you're able to resolve your buzz problem.
  5. Its really annoying, I've lowered the action and its PERFECT, literally i dont think ive ever played something so wonderfully articulate and easy. Just the stupid bridge 'sizzle' i had it a little on my other two- but this is quite pronounced.

    Very sweet bass man. I'm hopefully getting a fretless quantum in the near future, I just don't think I can play anything besides modulus now.
  7. MAJOR bummer!

    I had it checked out and apparently the bridge is just naturally producing the buzz, no setup problem, no frets or anything just the saddles fizzing on a BRAND NEW MODULUS!!!

    Does anyone else think thats just plain crazy? I didn't think problems like this existed on new basses of that price :bawl:
  8. THAT is a helpful comment my friend!!!!!
    I'm sure they were checked but i'll make sure they're re-checked.

    Its lovely, the action is perfect, I can't believe how totally even each not is and the action is incredible. Always a fly in the ointment sadly!
  9. Chris,

    Check every screw on the bridge, especially the string saddles. If you have adjustable string spacing it may be one of those screws. My Zon used to buzz at the bridge until I really tightened them up.

    Also, if you can't hear the buzzes through the amp, then they don't really exist... :)

    The buzz will definitely be fixable, regardless. Beautiful bass!

    I had a bad string once. Thought it was the truss rod..., new string, buzz gone. Worth a try.

    Nice bass, dude. :)
