New Bass!!! VJ4 with J-Retro!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by LonghornBass, Jan 25, 2003.


  1. I picked up a Modulus VJ4 during the Christmas break and finally got some pictures to share.

    This bass is amazing. I really dig the tortoise shell/sunburst color scheme. With the J-retro preamp I installed I can get that "Marcus" tone that I was missing on my Stingray.

    A comment on the J-retro; I would recommend this to anyone looking to "activate" their jazz bass. The bass boost is _tremendous_ and the sweepable mids allows an insane variety of sounds.
     
  2. Another one...
     
  3. Here's a little groove I recorded.

    The quality has much to be desired, as I recorded straight bass into the soundcard. Aside from that, I think that the sonic qualities of the preamp can be heard.

    thanks im just trying to compare how i sound to other people who play, i live in a small town so there is no comparison
     
  8. Sweet groove. I like it. I've had my eye on a VJ4 at a local shop for awhile. I think it's passive. I should be able to get a deal on it. It's been hanging there for a couple years. Hmmm...

    Sweet Bass! I also have a VJ4 and I believe it is probably the best Jazz Bass out there for the $. I plan on playing mine for many years to come. Congrats!
