Great sound

Love this bass head! I have it on a "jazz" set and I've got just the right blend of open tone and thump- not ringy but not at all cardboard boxish. It's on a Catalina Maple bd, with a thin single layer reso (comparable to a G1, no rings, just a straight up coated single ply) with a felt strip on the reso side only, no porthole. Old school and it sounds perfect.
