Has anyone had a chance to hear the new Mach II's in their bass?

[quote="Funkshwey":1d4tztrr]Buffalo the hybrid treble control is essential to getting a warmer less clacky more forgiving tone. You should definitely mod. It's not your strings or your PUs, it's the lack of ability to passively roll off highs IMO.[/quote:1d4tztrr] Hey Funk, Thanks for your input, and as well as others discussing technique in this thread as it pertains to string noise. I have been really working on technique as a potential way to eliminate some of the string noise i am experiencing. My string noise issue is not of the clickity clack ilk, but is more of a harsh harmonic type. When I do slides (glissandos), I can get some strong harmonics ringing and no amount of technique work has reduced this for me. Also, just moving around the board can leave some strong harmonics ringing and harsh string noise when using guide fingers, etc.. I have tried cutting highs and even high mids on my GBE 600, and I have tried adjusting the tweeter control on my Schroeder 210212L, but this does not help much either. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the phat growl of my ABII, but I would like to reduce the ringing and string noise. It may be technique and I just don't know it, but I think Funk's suggestion is probably right. Being able to roll off the highs a bit on the bass is probably the solution. I think I need to order a HTC kit and install it.

Buffalo I think that would be the cheapest least invasive fix. I know what you mean w/the stray harmonics and I think it's a muting technique issue. Sometimes I'll hear harmonic ringing and I think man I'm muting the string and actually it's my finger resting perfectly over the fret. 2 fingers will stop it or resting your pinky and index finger firmly on the E and A strings on your plucking hand. I'm trying to make this technique more automatic. I'm not sure I would be as happy w/my ABII-5 if it didn't have the hybrid treble pot. Even with the treble rolled all the way back it still has an awesome sound and is similar to the Blueqube being engaged w/fine tuning ability. The treble cut tapers off slowly until about the last 20% of the rotation. I think you'll love it.
