i just acquired an AB1 6string to go along with my 5er. i noticed that when i roll down the tone pot to the bassy setting, the volume drops considerably as well. i do not notice this on my AB1 5er. the 6 is a 2004 and the 5 is a 2006 the 6 has the blueQube and the 5er does not. any thoughts?

I suspect it's either the cap value used back then or how the tone pot was wired into the circuit. If you send a photo to tech@(your favorite bass company name here).com Jeff can take a look at it and see if it's an easy mod to correct.

Then post this info as a sticky on the Dingwall forum? Mine's just a stock ABII5 with the hybrid treble and BluEqube. This would be way easier than replying to 60 emails with wiring diagrams imho. Mine happens to be a P-Tone/MII (series/series). Would the cap value be different for those using FD3/MII, as opposed to P-Tone/MII? I think most of us that have switched from the parallel FD3 to the series MII are having this problem with volume roll off and uneven treble reduction taper. Thank you

You should try a Stellartone Tonestyler. I have one in both my ABIs and it's awesome.

Sorry. I thought we were talking about a passive AB1. Anyway, the Tonestyler really transformed my AB1-5. FRB nearly talked me into putting Villex pickups in it to make it bark more but the Tonestyler did the trick.
