I saw an AB-1 for sale at Bass Northwest. The bass hase dots on the neck and no blue qube. Is this a new developement with the AB-1's?? I love mu blue qube for slap style!! Thanks! mitch ps. maybe it's because of the mach 2 pickups??

YUP--- According to sheldon a while back. They stopped adding in the BluEQube cicuit when they did the Mach II pickups as they found the blue-cube was redundant. So I guess what you saw at BNW was a brand new AB1

I'm on the verge of ordering an AB1. Why have they changed the design? Why is the BluEQube redundant as it were. And do all AB1s have Mach-IIs I thought they had FD-3s?

They now have FD-3 Mach II. That is, IRRC, an FD-3 pair with the bridge pickup wired internally with the two coils in series. It's supposed to give a hotter output and more low mids.

The cube would still be a quick way to cut the mids irrespective of whether the pickups were series or parallell. Am I missing something?? The slap sound I get quickly when I flip the switch is one of my favorite Dingwall features. Were there problems with the cube? Thanks! mitch

There were no problems with it as I understand. Sheldon decided that installing a switch on the bridge pickup for FD-3 or Mach II operation would be just as good and more simple. Frankly, I would like a bluEQube, but if I had to choose one or the other, I would take the FD-3/Mach II switch instead.

Do you think you could have both. It might be nice for the variety.

Yeah, the bluEQube on my older ABII-5 is an instant slap switch. I find it very useful.

Yes, love my bluEQube on my AB11-5 also. I find it much easier to use on the fly than the p/u selector.... love it love it love it... :D

Yesterday, I was going to post that I didn't find the Qube very useful, but after last nights rehearsal, I've changed my mind! I have an ABII5 and mainly use series mode, for the volume, punch and mids. Flick the Qube, boost the treble (over half), and you have a great, scooped slapping sound! Cheers, EG
