ID this Bartolini pre - upgraded Lakland Skyline 55-01
I think I goofed and posted this in "basses" - so reposting here where I might get a better response.
I need some assistance ID'ing this preamp. I have a 2001 Korean Lakland 55-01. I am preparing to sell it here, so I want to get my facts straight.
I know that when I bought it, it had an upgraded Bartolini preamp. It has five control knobs, of the rubberized Bartolini type.
IIRC, it was the preamp used in the USA Laklands at the time. The quirk is that there is no "switch" on the front, maybe because it's a 55-01 and not a 55-02? Either way I have a pic of the electronics cavity below, and I don't know what the function of the dual dip switch is.
Can anyone ID the pre-amp (i.e. name it)?
Can anyone tell me what the two switches do?
I'm pretty sure it's the NTMB. The module with the dip switches is probably the mid frequency selector. Some NTMBs have a push/pull on the mid knob for selecting between 250 and 800hz. Others have the dip switch out front for selecting between 250, 500, and 800hz. (You mentioned this in your post). Yours has it internally. It's either the latter or a Lakland custom job which may have different frequency points or even be four way.
Really need a Lakland expert to chip in. That's the best I can do unfortunately.
Does insulating the connections with duct tape help the sound??
