    Finally done it at last! I've bought the Darkglass Tone Capsule from Reverb.com!

    The reason why I'm calling it New Gear Week rather than New Gear Day is because it's still going to take until Friday or the next Monday for the item itself to arrive.

    I'll provide more info on it when it arrives and when it gets installed!

    Good news is, the preamp arrived in the mail. The bad news is, I just wasted $260 on an onboard pre that only works with very specific basses that are made with the Tone Capsule in mind. UGH.

    The logical decision is obviously getting a new bass as well. :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately so, yes. The guys that initially said they would do it were screaming off the top of their lungs that I should buy a different bass altogether and forget about the Tone Capsule completely.

    Were they trying to sell you a bass too? I imagine you could get the sound you want our of your bass with the right pickups.
