The Pickups

The Delano pickups in a TM (Single Coil/Humbucker) configuration give you a vast array of tones to play around with.

With the T-series neck single coil you get a reconstruction of those vintage Jazz Bass pickups from the 1960's and 1970's. This pickup grants you a nice blend of woody low-mid growls and warm articulate midrange as well as that trademark funky "twang" that they were renowned for.

Then there's the awesome M series bridge humbucker.  This pickup is based heavily around the popular Stingray style humbucker, with a very wide string sensing area to pick up as much tonal colour as possible. 

You get that fat and grinding tone when in humbucker mode, but at the flick of a switch can be converted into a bright and clear sounding single-coil instead.  With a warm bass and low-mid response, and extra voice on the mids and bright percussive top end, this pickup is as versatile as you could want or need it to be.

Versatile Electronics

The preamp circuitry on the California TM4 is simply perfect for the modern bassplayer.  What initially looks like a standard setup has a clever little surprise in store, in the shape of a push/pull Volume control knob that allows you to set the preamp to Active or Passive.

Next to the Volume control you have the Balance control, which acts as a nice pickup selector "Blend" option where you can determine the level of each pickup in the mix (centre position has both pickups running at 100%, or turn the control in the direction of the pickup you want to be at the forefront to make it so).

The Treble control allows you to either boost the Treble or cut the tone, which works even in passive mode! 

Finally there's the Bass control, which works in the same way as the Treble control (without the passive cut) but for your low-end frequencies.  Exciting stuff!
