Might not be what you looking for. Listen to late 60s to mid 70s airplane and dead both casidy and lesh used them. They sound kind of like a gibson mud bucker but have a little more deffinition and a little more output in the mids.

Well, they didn't use Dark Stars, they used the original pickups after which Dark Stars are modeled, but probably close enough. I loved Jack's tone back then (do now as well). I wonder - might we have become a Dark Star endorser had he not already made his signature bass deal with Epiphone? An Epi Jack customized with Dark Stars might be awfully nice.

Definitely not mud. I'd say woody, dark (of course) and deep. But well defined and balanced. They are not for everyone. But they are for me. I'm having a custom built with one and I haven't been this excited about a bass for a long time.

I'm not sure I agree with Mudbucker comparison but I've only heard the soundclips:

I just jammed out slap->both pickups->rounds

 

God I wish I could slap :love:

 

Are there any other sites like that with sound clips that I could check out? I am currently tearing apart an SX and have absolutely no clue where to start.
