    I may be looking to install an Audere classic 3 band pre in my Lakland. Anyone using this combo? Thoughts?

    I have a Bart 5.2AP pre in there now but something is wrong with the treble output. Can the treble pots go bad? I used to have plenty of high end zing when set at center detent. Now I have to turn the treble all the way up and sometimes I get feedback. I have literally nothing now at center detent. I'm thinking I may have zapped the pre while using a 'bad' headphone amp. The rest of the pre (mids, bass, balance, volume|active passive) works fine.

    Is it the pot or do I need to switch out the preamp?

    Hi - I can't tell you anything about your issue with your current pre... but, I can tell you that I have used classic Barts (P2 size/5-string) with an Audere Classic 4-band, and it killed! I highly recommend installing a 3-way mini toggle to switch between Series/Single coil/Parallel - the tonal options are insane. The only reason I removed the Bart Classics is that I purchased a set of Delano HE pickups (a bit more aggressive throughout those mids!).

    Try swapping out the pot first, it's cheaper than a new pre.

    If you have a multimeter you can test the pot to make sure it's working correctly.
