    Any sound clips?
     
  12. Unfortunately, no

    I can only say, that this is one of the best sounding Tobias I have ever owned
     
  13. Greg, is that a TCT pre amp? I can't tell by the picture. Also is it a Vol/Blend or Vol/Vol?
     
  14. Vol / blend
     
  15. WTMB

  17. I can't find WTMB on Bartolini's website, but I do see NTMB.

    WTMB is a prototype preamp Mike and team were testing toward the end. You won't find info on it from Bartolini as it was an unpublished product. My #1969 has a WTMB.

  19. I have owned several Classic 5s and still own a Basic 5 (708), and this bass has incredible tone.
