Yeah I've gotten to try a couple. As a matter of fact I tried one through a Trace at Daddy's Junky Music across from Berklee when I was 16. It was great.

They also had quite an impressive selection of Modulus Graphite basses there too.

I had a Kawaii Alembic copy, that looked like the Stanley Clarke model, but it was red, with black hardware. That was one of those basses filed under I should have held on to. :roll:

I've played on Modulus basses, as well. Those graphite necks had an interesting feel and sound to them. I played a Music Man after it, and the neck was like a sponge, in comparison.

Yeah I kinda like the sound of those old Modulus basses. The necks and string spacing felt good to me too. When I went to music school in Maine one of my bass teachers had a Modulus 6 that he converted to a 5 with a High C string that he let me try a couple of times.

They also seemed like the go to axe for 90's jam band bassists.

I think them and Steinberger were about the only ones doing those necks, unless I'm forgetting someone. There was no internet back then (I didn't even have a PC until maybe 2000,) so whatever you saw in a shop, is what I knew about. There were magazines, though. Bass Player was around.

Status was making them, Zon was, There was a couple of others. I seem to remember John Entwistle having a Status Buzzard that was completely graphite. A lot of people were turned off by the brightness of the graphite necks.

Oh yeah, there was Status. I didn't remember if they were graphite or not.

After I posted that I remembered Moses but they mostly did Electric Uprights and replacement necks.

Modulus actually got started contracting necks for Alembic. Stanley Clarke used a Graphite Neck Alembic for years and his limited edition Spellbinder line also used Graphite.

Spellbinder? That name sounds familiar. I didn't know he had graphite necks on his basses.

Here's a little from their website:

https://www.lieberguitars.com/about/

I couldn't find anything about the first run that had graphite necks.

I actually have a set of their knobs on my Jazz. They are Ebony with Mother of Pearl Bass Clefs on them.

The EQ on the Hartke is well worth the trade off from the Markbass, to the Hartke. The HyDrive15" is performing above, and beyond my expectations for it. The 4 ohm internal set up is fine as well. A lot of volume, and power for only 150 Watts.

Maybe there's really something with those aluminum speakers, and even more so with the combination of materials with the HyDrives. That, and it plays really nicely with the Jazz.

I know I've said this before about gear, and moved it, but this Player Jazz / HD115 combination is absolutely, ROAD REX APPROVED!!! Image No Smokin' & Jokin' about it!!!

That's always a good thing.

I was thinking if someday I got the itch to do a Hartke half stack again, it would be the TX300 head, and the HD115 cab. Or the HD112 on the back burner. I don't foresee that happening though. Just good to keep options open in the mind anyway. The HD115 combo is ample. :mrgreen:
