    Every tone I wanted, for every song, all night long. BAM


    Big props to the Musicman Sterling & the 5 way pickup switch for changing tone DRAMATICALLY on the fly. Having both series & parallel with no volume change is an incredible feat vs other basses I've owned.... The grind (Series Mode) & the warmth (Parallel). Its a cover band bassists dream when you run song to song without a break.

    GK NEO 412 with dual channel Genz Benz 9.2 Shuttlemax making ANYTHING & EVERYTHING possible. The rumble of the GK NEO 412 is intense. I've been running a few other cabs lately but the extra oomph of 412s vs my GK NEO 115 stack is very significant. I'm glad I made the switch to go big.

    The Shuttlemax 9.2 with dual channels, one for pillow warmth booty shaking lows... the other for aggressive clarity & effects. My effects pedal died in the middle of a song, changed channels & I was back up & running. I can bring any frequency up & down in the mix. The 5 position footswitch a complete beast. Just awesome

    Tone nirvana & now going on a few years without ANY amp \ cab gas. :hyper: Sterling 4 Life

    I'd like to try a multi-pickup Sterling 5.

    It sounds like you have a great setup there.

    The 5 pickup switch to change tone in addition to a 3 band EQ means you have a TON of options that are easy to get your head around.

    Gotta try it ! So fast to change your tone & know you haven't affected volume one bit.
