    I have a Lakland 55-94 deluxe with Bartolini pick-ups and pre-amp. The pre-amp having died needs replacing. I'm not looking to change my sound but to keep things as close as possible. It seems Bartolini does not make the exact same pre-amp. I welcome suggestions.

    Think about replacing it with the Hanson LH3....

    I have heard the LH3 and Barts combo is great....

    I happen to like the LH3 with the newer Hanson pickups ....

    Pretty similar to an ntmb if you want a strait swap. I actually have a bart pre from a usa lakland jo5 that i ripped out to go passive. Could probably be persuaded to sell it to you.

    Id suggest swapping to a sadowsky pre with vtc! My 55-94 was awesome with a sadowsky outboard.
