  4. I've been watching for one of these on the classifieds for years. Thank you for letting us know it's set up for 4 string bass. I was just about to jump on this. It would've been a bummer to find out after the fact that it wasn't optimized for my 5 strings. I'm sure this won't last long!

    Yeah, when I ordered this and mentioned how I’m exclusively a four string bassist, I was concerned about having my frequency cutoff a little bit closer to 40Hz. Thankfully he had just made this so I snagged it quickly. Glad he had one available and also glad that you didn’t mistakenly purchase it, too. I’m hoping that we might have discussed this detail before exchanging funds also...

    Funny as a sound engineer I would be happy to filter a 5 string at 38Hz.

    Mastering engineers will ultimately lob off everything below 40Hz for the final.

    It’s the hunk below all that that wastes headroom and also has unintended consequences for other circuits (comps for example).
