Warwick SSII preamp
I have a '97 Streamer Stage II 4. I love the sound of the bass with the preamp bypassed. I then use my amp eq. I get a nice, clean tone that I dig.
But with the amp engaged, it's really grindy . . . not as clean sounding, let's just say.
Is my observation correct? If so, generally what preamps do people replace the SSII preamp with?
MEC preamps are clean as anything sounds like there is a problem somewhere. I'm guessing you have a new battery in it so I'm not sure. I have a bunch of Wicks I love em and I have changed preamps many times because I wanted more color and control.
EMG BQC works great with MEC pups and vise versa I also like the Seymour Duncan 3 band for active pickups it's nice and clean and not over the top boosty like Aguilar can get.
Does it "blow up" when eq controls are flat or just boosted? My avatar I'm playing my SSII 5 string and I dropped EMG J1 active pickups and a Seymour Duncan 3 band and it has been my main bass ever since it sounds amazing crystal clear no distortion at all ever.
I don't mean my bass distorts with the preamp engaged.
I just mean the tone is colored towards something little more grindy with fatter lows, whereas in pasive it is nice and clean almost an MTDish tone.
