Sound Quality

Due to the EMG pickups,EQ system and graphite neck, this bass has a very defined "hi-fi" sound but there's quite a bit of tonal variety available. Modulus also offers Bartolini and Lane Poor pickups as an option. I personally like EMG's and I've always been pleased with their performance. The bass is dead quiet. I've played this bass through both my all-tube Ampeg SVT stack and my G-K head/SWR cabinet rig,it's tone is consistently bright and defined. It can cut like a razor or be very smooth. It may not be the best choice for gigs that require a retro P-Bass tone, but it's tone is unique and with some amp tweaking, who knows. This bass is an excellent choice for both studio and stage. Complaints Dept: For a bass this price I expect sheilding(I know it's not a necessity due to the fact EMG's are internally sheilded, but still), threaded brass inserts for the electronics cavity and a separate battery compartment. This bass is lacking all three.

Reliability/Durability

No straplocks, go figure! Everything else is choice. The finish is tough and everything seems very solid, no worries. Due to the fact this bass is active, I take a backup just in case of battery failure. But even on gigs where I'm using a passive bass, I bring a backup. You never know when something could fail. The show must go on!

General Comments

I've been playing for 27 years. I've always liked the Quantum's comfortable neck and unique tone. I found a killer deal on this bass. I was quite content with my Spector NS-4CRFM, but having passed on a great deal on a Q-4 some years back, I was'nt about to pass on this one. I own many different basses including Alembic, Rickenbacker, Spector, Fender, Warmoth, and EB MusicMan basses. This bass has a sound and feel like no other bass I own. It's become my main stage bass. I would certainly replace it if were lost or stolen.
