    Hi Doug!

    I write from Spain so sorry my poor english. First of all congratulations for your work. You are a great inspiration for many of us.

    Well, i think i have a MVP over 1988-1989 S.N 20XX. Is it near yours?

    I get it with an EMGs instead of Bartolini and with the original PREAMP. The bass had a GREAT GROWL. I change the preamp with a OBP3 and I think it has lost a bit of growl. It doesn´t roars as before.

    Did you change your preamp or conserve the original? Do you advise me to put the old one again.

    I used it in passive mode and had a great growl. The active mode had only a master volume and a red light. Now, when i put it in passive, bypassing the OBP3, it doesn´t sound as before.

    Anyway thanks and nice to talk you.

    Hello, simper66,

    My Buzz Bass is a 1986, so the S.N. is not close to yours.

    My bass has a Bartolini TMB preamp. It's an older one, nothing too special.

    I like Bartolini products a lot. I believe Bartolini and Pedulla together make that great growl. Maybe you can try that?

    Thank you for the compliment!
