Hi Folks,
Just joined up. Great to see a forum dedicated to my favorite bass. I have two T-40's, a stock natural '79, and a White '80 with darkstars that has become my main stage bass. I'll post info about the '80 later.

Quick question, I compiled a rather large T-40 Info-Sheet that I posted over at TB. Should I post it in here or in T-40 Techinical information or both?

Thanks,
Eilif

I'd post in the Technical topic. Welcome to the forum!!!

I haven't tried dual dark stars, just the single one in my T-45. Well worth the price though for the tone achieved.

Welcome eilif! The Dark star conversion is at the top of my list of things to do.

Jerry, the 45 I'm sending you is a prime candidate for a DS. PRIME!!!

Scott, that is exactly what I had in mind. You introduced me to the Dark Stars and for that and other things, I thank you . Very excited about doing this to the 45.

Go for it. watch out though, one DS is nice, but 2 is really something! DS's are kind of addictive.

I need to try another DSed bass. The only one I never played just seemed to amplify finger noise and didn't produce any sound that apealed to my ears Sad Everyone raves about them so I'll keep an open mind Wink

Hey FL,
Good to see that you are over here.
Out of curiosity, which DS bass did you play? I do find the t-40 with DS's is generally unforgiving of sloppy technique, but I haven't found that it amplifies finger noise.

However, I've tried a couple of DS basses, and I can say that there was a DS'd p-style that I played that was really spanky, with what I felt was too much bite and snap and almost untamable highs, even through a tube amp. I chalked it up to what I suspected was a too high pole height and probably obnoxiosly bright stainless steel strings.

I posted the info on DS'd T-40 in the "modded t-40" forum

The one I played was a Warmoth "Fender P" clone at a guitar show in Orlando. At this point, I much prefer the stock Peavey T-40/45 pups. I would like to try a DS bass that was set up, dialed in and sounding as intended!!

Knife,

I've found just the complete opposite from your experience with a DS. Although I do use Pyramid flatwound strings on my DS'd T-45. McCartney tone all day long.

I have yet to play a DS'd bass with rounds. I'd love to. I'm not about to change the flats on this bass. They've been on there almost 2 years now and are just getting better with age.
