    Hey there, this is going to be short thread, since I am borderline retarded when it comes to electronics.

    Basically, i'm wondering If i can use a 'Delano 3 Band Preamp' (http://www.bestbassgear.com/delano-sonar-bass-preamps.htm# - Second one down) In a Ibanez BTB 675 Bass.
    I primarily want to use the active/passive selection with the volume push/pull - Which the Ibanez does not have. The bass' stock preamp does however have 5 knobs for Volume, Pickup balance, Bass, treble and midrange boost/cut. Will this work? If not, could somebody please send me in the right direction. Again, I apologise if this thread is vague/dumb as I know VERY little about electronics.

    Thanks.

    Sure, it'll work fine. Any preamp can be used with any pickups, with rare exceptions(certain EMG's).

    Hey there, thanks for the response. Will I be able to use the Push pull function though? Also, do I need to do any extra wiring (although I probably won't be doing it myself)

    The push-pull is built into the Delano volume pot so, yes, it will work. The wiring should be very easy to do.
