    Ok I have two really cool passive jazz basses that need a bit of help-ie preamp and I am generally not a passive guy... I've used drop in preamps like Audere and EMG btc circuits.. What I'd like to know is there anything out there than sounds good and is a failry easy install preamp that will work for jazz for less than $100? I'm planning to keep my current pickups in both basses just would like a bit more on the fly tone shaping at my fingertips before it hits my rig

    Instead of buying multiple onboard preamps for your basses, you could always get the Sadowsky outboard one. It might be more than you are willing to spend for one preamp, but if you can spread it over a few basses, it will end up costing less per bass... and if the battery does, you can always unplug it and plug your bass directly into your amp to get you through the show.
