  1. I'm thinking that Roger needs to do a 4 and 5 string P or P/J Metro. That will complete the sequence for him to take over the BASS WORLD!!!! Also, I'll have a nice new 5 string P/J 5. :hyper: :D

    Roger needs to do a mid control ... semi-para would be very cool. Although it's too late for me ... it'll be a week or two before I can order another one (not that I'm complaining, the tone of that new one simply rules). I'm thinking Olympic White Vintage, or something.
     
  3. I think that one of the coolest features about his pre is that it's only 2 band. Maybe as an option like the VTC.
     

  4. AMEN!!! I would love to have a Metro in P/J configuration!!!

    Yeah i think a PJ Metro would do very well. I hope Roger designs a dual or quad coil Humbucker that could be used in a J/MM Sadowsky set up.

    Did you hear about the new outboard preamp being designed with a 3 band option?.
     
  7. Did you just bought a P/J??

    Yes I did. I believe my response was something like, "When is he going to put it in a bass?"

    I like the 2 band. I use the mid on my demeter in my rack if i need mids, which I never seem to need. LOL. Would love to get another pj, btw. Should have not sold my lake placid blue pj. One Sadowsky I wish I had back for sure

    I don't miss the mid control AT ALL, but if Roger did offer a P/J metro, I would probably buy one as a back up to my #1 baby 4 string NYC P/J 4. In the meantime, I will just have to figure out how to save up enough money for a new NYC!!!

    I like mid controls, especially ones that are switchable or semi-parametric.

    On 1/3/05 5:54 AM I sent this question to Sadowsky:

    ... I'd be interested in hear from you about a possible new preamp with mid freq. Is it true that you are working on this? If so, what would be the specs and when will it be available?

    and I got this answer from Kevin@Sadowsky:
    "We are working on a outboard preamp with a sweepable mid frequency ... however, I doubt we’ll ever be introducing this feature as an onboard installation."

    i used to think so too, but after a while, i realized that the bass not only gives you that weighty fat bottom end, but also a nice lower mid punch that no other onboard, let alone preamp has done for me.

    again, still awaiting on the sadowsky 1U preamp, but we'll see...

    Me too, until I bought my Metro and played it at rehearsal. I don't miss the mid control on my Laklands at all.
     
  17. Mid freq might be a cool option... as long as the original pre never, ever changes or goes away, it really works TOO well.

    I have found backing off the bass control helps but their is alot of great low end on these basses.

    I thought the bass was boost only. How do you back off? Or are you talking at the amp?

    Yeah backing of the boost.
