    I am now gassing for a sub contra bass 4 string ala JAUQO IIIX's after hearing his cd and being impressed with the fact that the low frequencies were not only audible, but clear and musical as well! I am not able to afford a full on custom like his Adler, but I am curious as to what I should look for in a bass to convert. I would assume that I would probably set it up volumn only (who would make a pre for those frequencies?)
    and neck stability would be important as well as pickup choice... am I crazy? good crazy? bad crazy?
  2. You'll have to go to talkkontrabass then :smug:
  3. I think nearly all pre-amps will begin to tail off slightly as you approach 20 Hz and beyond, so I wouldn't be too concerned about it. I'd be more concerned about the rig you'll play it through.
  4. I believe that is a real German Upright sight. just so you know.

    How about you just ask Jauqo himself?!?! I'm sure (as I stated on the other thread) he would be considered THE authority on this subject.
