CHEAP MM 2/3-band pre suggestions? (Only have 3 holes for pots)
I know these threads exist ALLL over the place, but my question is fairly specific.
Right now, I've got an early 2000s OLP ray (black and maple) and a new bridge, and a newly ordered Kent Armstrong MM pickup. It's currently passive, but I'd love a 3 hole preamp configuration to beef it up! Of course I'd love to drop 150 on an OBP-3 or a John East Preamp... But the life of a poor college student dictates otherwise! I don't need to "cop a perfect MM tone" (I already have a 3 band 1995 Natural and Maple EBMM Ray). But I'd like to get moderately close.... Any suggestions for a well voiced preamp for a crappy MM bass? Preferably cheap? or moderately so?
Is my thumb supposed to bleed like that?
