    I'm looking at getting an Aguilar preamp for my SR375F and since they don't come prewired (except from BestBassGear), can I just recycle my knobs and pots already on my bass? I'm happy with the knob layout I have now, but I'd like to get a preamp in there. I've included photos of what I have stock. Thanks!

    You can if you pot values are what Aguilar recommends. For eq pots (bass,mid,treb) you should have 50K. For volume and blend you should have 250K with passive pickups which I believe your bass has. Pay attention the the wiring for the volume and blend knob. Aguilar's drawing has the volume pot wired wrong.

    In what way is it wrong? Thanks for that piece of advice!


    I ordered the OBP-3SK/PP yesterday, so this time next week I should be taking the dive.
