I'm GASing for a Streamer 5 string these days; either a $$ or a Jazzman. I went down to GC yesterday to try out their Corvette counterparts thinking that, aside from the maple neck on the Streamer $$, it should give me a good idea of the bass I'll eventually order. After playing a bit, I was thinking, for me, the most significant difference in the models would be the 3-band vs. 2-band EQ. It seemed to me while playing the Jazzman that the mid boost would be very useful in dialing in that nasty growl and potentially cutting through difficult mixes. OTOH, I like the $$ configuration, the added oomph, and the slightly lower price tag. So, what do you $$ owners and 2-band EQ users think? Do you ever miss the mid boost? Thanks.
