Rick-O-Sound provides a choice between three different types of effects at one time. With the pickup selector on the bass pickup, Rick-O-Sound puts out a lush and full bass sound. With the pickup selector in the middle position, a beautiful blend of highs and lows can be achieved, much like a clean chorus effect. The tonal separation is particularly good when using two amplifiers. With the pickup selector in the treble position, Rick-O-Sound produces a bright and full ringing lead tone. An example set-up might have a soft, full jazz sound with plenty of reverb at the bass setting in the amplifier or channel one, a loud and distorted heavy rock sound at the treble position in the amplifier or channel two, and a big pop rock stereo chorus type sound as a combination of the two in the middle position using both amplifiers or channels. Experiment with the endless unique stereo variations which Rick-O-Sound can produce. The results are surprising. Currently there is one on reverb/Ebay for $250.
The Rickenbacker 4003 Bass is famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch, and solid underlying bottom end. It's also famous for its distinctive, elegantly curved body shape, accentuated by a subtle strip of binding, deluxe triangular fretboard inlays, stereo output, neck-thru-body construction, double truss rods, and high output single-coil pickups with wide response range and brilliant clarity. The Vintage Tone Selector activates a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasize the high end. Pressed in, you get the familiar 4003 sound, pull it out to add bite and crispness. Includes case.
