I like the MM, ocbviously, but I take the point that that very distinctive sound can be a drawback. Not a "fit's all" bass, but definitely one that I used to hear as a kid and go "what's that bass, then?"

Unusually for a lefty, I actually played a Wal, owned by a richer lefty during one of those "get up and play" sessions. Incredibly deep and woody, with more than the average sustain, too. I bought a "Jim Reed" BE5, which are made in Italy but their distribution seems to be blokes with a garage selling on eBay. The Wal/Alembic style was obviously attempted and it's not a bad try for sensible money. The letdowns are the Kramer-sourced pickups. I mean to get those replaced someday.
