    Man, great overview, thanks! I have a fender am dlx that has fralin single coils that has the j-retro dlx and my main bass is a Gadow 5 that has Nordy big singles with the u-retro dlx. That passive tone is one of the best that I've dealt with on an active circuit. I totally know what you mean about the upper mid snarl, man I love that!! I think I may have to give that a shot, totally respect your thoughts on that. Appreciate that.

    Thanks Leo, good luck with it! I cant say enough good things about the Uni. If you can get one with the mid curve of the Retro, that would be my suggestion. I think the passive tone is actually improved upon in the Uni Pre from the Retro circuit if I remember correctly.

    I'm in the process of trying to get a custom UNI for my Erizias 6. Such a great circuit.
