Between these basses ... which is the most versatile?
if you look at your poll youll see people are voting
I have never played a Benavente, but i haved owned both a Roscoe and a couple of Moduluses. Overall, I think the Modulus is a really nice and bright sounding bass with a great slap sound and a killer B. The Roscoe is much more mellow or dark, it is not as much of a slapper either. It would be better for Motown or finger funk than for bright snappy tunes.
IME, Dr. Cheese is absolutely right. All I could add would that the Benavente would be the perfect medium between these two. My experience is limited to Benaventes equiped with Bartolinis, though. I don't know about the new pickups and pres.
If it is versatility you want then, why did you not include the G&L L-2500?
If you have a Roscoe with the Demeter preamp than it's a completely different animal. See the thread on "modifying your Roscoe".
Heeeey... Wouldn't that be "Moduli"?
Have you played all three? Which neck do you like the feel of better? Which bass is the most comfortable bodily wise: weight, contours and balance. AND... which one DO YOU like the sound of better. Any bass can be versatile if you can play with versatility.
I'm a slapper ...
but not so much. Plus i already have a Fender 4 string to slap my mind out!!!!!
I will buy them sight unseen ... so i'm asking you ..
