Welcome to the “axe heavy hittaz” family: Dirty Amber Bomb
2010 MTD KZ6 [satin amber] +upgraded bart pups and SKB hard case for a decent price…let’s just say that it’s a nice deal.
i guess i can properly fill my MTD double gigbag with two MTDs [my main axe is an MTD KZX]…i’ve received a Cort Curbow 6 string as an addition that’s quite the perfect fit for my hands. with a single Bart pup and the high C , it’s a lovely complementing device to my latest 6 string which i’m adjusting the strings to be F# B E A D G…this is gonna be fun. also, i’m going to give some time pre and post setup to make a decision of whether or not to upgrade the preamp [different forums are telling me to upgrade for the par-settings that lay within the built-in preamp…idk, but what i do know is that my KZX boasts nice custom Bart pres and pups…
now here’s a fine example of a ‘pro pimped MTD KZ6’ found on talkbass forums [http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/pro-pimped-mtd-kz6-831970/]
according to the seller, he pimped his KZ6 axe with OB3-preamp, Bridge and Nordstrand Big Splits, performed by Bass Exchange in Los Angeles.
on another forum i’ve found the following to be an interesting alternative to Mike Tobias’s all Bart package [i.e.-my MKZX’s electronic entrails] http://www.learngospelmusic.com/forums/index.php?topic=66348.0
“So I found a cat on talkbass who did a Nordy DC5’s each with a coil tap, Audere 4 band with Z-mode and am going to try that.”
here goes yet another fantastic job done well by the bass exchange out in CA [http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/mtd-kz6-6-string-bass-upgrades-%241-500-%2Alimited-free-shipping-fs-f-s-752153/#post10620668]
