    Hey yo, what do we think of the double buck compared to the double single coil? Looking at Corvette Std pro series or Streamer LX Pro if it comes in double buck...does it buck the hum well? Because I hate noise!! :eyebrow: How's the tone? Is it easy to balance your thumb on the pickup? Good passive? Fretless? Please just bring any and all thoughts and experiences on the matter. RIGHTEOUS

    I love mine, but there can be some hum when the pickup(s) are set to single coil position and the blend is not balanced -- like a jazz bass.

    When in humbucking positions, they're quiet.

    I have mine wired vol/vol/tone, just like a jazz bass. No extra switching. Its still incredibly versatile, and sounds monstrous.

    Mine's set up that way as well. And HM's right, it certainly brings the thunder.
