Modulus flea bass manufactures in California
22 frets, micro bartolini at the bridge,
4 knobs, theft, bass, mid treb
Quick Channel carbon and slamming
4.2 kg not too heavy, and fairly well balanced.
in terms of ITS ... we like it or not ... This is very characteristic, but this time, a lack of woummmmh
Just a color I would describe as modern and betrays the "lack of wood."
Enough for the shot and not very versatile !!!!!! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt="sad" />
Having practiced little prs all rglages studio and live: mistrust: this bass does not sound on anything !!!
The couple we test with an Ampeg SVT does not quite finally concluding: Many sub, bass drooling and slamming into acute (3-4 kHz) rather nazillard but a lack of d Finishing in the top and bottom mdium ... <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt="sad" />
Surprising even when and for once, not simple rgler ...
It depends of course what we integrates, I understand, for example, that if you have two guitarists quips Mesa Boogie (very bold in the low-mid) this low will naturally find his place in it ... and the case is certainly effective in other configurations ... We should be able to try it "in situ" and make a self opinion (mine accounts for me). ..dropoff window
The price is a little violent (3150 dollars from the factory with 23 week wait)
The sound is radically modern ... requires carbon (slamming and brightness)
The Sting Ray was when even more "wood" ... In the choice? ... We will say that the modulus is one of the instruments that can hang his picture but I do not think it can be qualified as "the ultimate instrument" and therefore my conclusion (everything personal well-on) it will have something else on hand that is more versatile and out from time to time to have fun on a map spcial ...

- This bass is made in United States, California, Novato, north of San Francisco ^ ^.
It has original 22 frets, and a microphone type MM Seymour Duncan bassline (modified from Modulus, at her, I think), or as a micro Bartolini MM. Finally, I have the Bassline ..
Normally, it has a preamp aguilar (Bartolini and can be too), 2-band EQ and 3 band EQ optional $ 50 powered by 18 volt!
I do not know accurately describe the trademark of the bridge (it is not written on it).
The settings of the two band EQ is very easy for a bass, and one for the treble, I also had the chance to test the 3-band EQ, and here, the settings are huge! Just turn the knob of a millimeter, and the sound changes very quickly. The microphone is placed almost in the same place of the famous Musicman Stingray.
And as you may know, the round is 100% carbon, very comfortable and very precise in the sound, and harmonics.
The handle-carbon is the most pleasant in the low! It is super well made, well painted, it is even very pretty, and makes reflections on the lights. And comfort on the sleeve of the game is exceptional, I do not think anyone Aimms sleeve carbon, but once you get used to, we know not part with it!
Speaking of sharp, sound is very 'soft' and precise, it's beautiful! I can explain it really, it really gives the urge to play.
I find the form bein made 'simple', but speaking of peas, this bass weighs just 4.2 kg, and it is still a bit heavy, piece of carbon is almost as heavy as the body of the bass : s
For a beautiful sound, it is necessary to know the whole low, and above all the settings, and especially it is in good hands.
- It is suitable for all styles of music, especially funk, but also Jazz, Blues, Rock. Slap the pleasant sound of the game doights tapping or gentle, precise, very nice pick game also ^ ^.
I play more funk style, so I chose the backline, which goes very well with this bass, but I still need a compressor. I have already heard, my bass, with a compressor, and that's where I crack!
May need to be listening to his concerts in Red Hot, or uses Modulus Flea: p, even if it does not use the same microphones, but still ...
In short, I love the sound of that bass! There is nothing in the sound that I do not like, other than it must be fed with 18 volts: '(: p, my god what power!
It's been almost a year, I have, and I have had no problems.
What I like most is the sound of course, and also the neck, and I said that Modulus is the famous inventors of the carbon handle.
What I like less is the weight of 4.2 kg
I tried beacoup models before buying, as the Musicman Stingray, of Washburn, and I Banez, the WW. And yet again, try other models, and frankly, I can not find better! Even I find as good a bass is the Modulus Quantum, wow, but hey, not enough money for it
It's an expensive low, about 2000 euros minimum in Europe, but I think it's worth.
I do not separate myself, in addition, she is super pretty, I in Blue Flake, as the old model of Flea, who shines as the light finally is also an option that costs $ 200 now! And if one day I'll buy even a low one day, I can promise that it will be a Modulus Flea and Quantum!

Adrien74's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Novato California
Seymour Duncan amended by modulus (modulus Seymour Duncan has asked to try to replicate mics lanepoor, ca s' aproach but that is still not ac)
preamp Aguilar OBP 1 short: a volume and a 2-band EQ: bass and treble
the handle is made of carbon, that is the last round modulus (the tuning fork and a little more digging) and the table is phelonique resin (the resin of the ball billardpar example, a short very hard resin)
the nut is made of carbon.
grinder: I just made up a badass II above, the sound became even bigger, more powerful, slightly more harmonics, in short that is more aggressive!
The handle is super nice, sweet, and in addition it is very nice
the access to acute nickel is (for me) the rest of the handle is really amazing it plays itself.
for with his n 'matter what settings, the preamp is very effectively, you move the knobs a bit and the sound is processed.
Ca level style suitable for all in my opinion, but ca veu not mean that it must be limited to this low!
j 'uses an SWR LA15 and I have tested this on a bass amp ashdown evo II 300 and recess on a Gallien Krueger. ca net clean sounds a lot of harmonics!
I like all the sounds of the bass, the more muted the more snapping.
I put 9 because the low-perfect does not exist!
I have four months since I like a lot to touch and sound, I like less weight against it j hesitate with a stingray and I have had the opportunity to purchase a modulus at a very advantageous then I have jumped on the opportunity and I 'm very happy, I do it again this choice without any problems. I have been on eBay a 1600 euros, including shipping and customs and new!
grinder: I just made up a badass II above, the sound became even bigger, more powerful, slightly more harmonics, in short that is more aggressive! I have a little drop of my medium to soften a bit, while keeping the big sound.
