    I like the sound of my Ibanez SR506, but seeing as it's my main bass and I play a lot of different music, I'd like to upgrade the pre to something that will give me a much larger tonal palette.
    I'm looking for any comments on any of the preamps I've already mentioned as well as other ideas for what I'm looking for, price isn't a huge issue. Thanks! :bassist:

    I'm pretty happy with the ACG EQ-01 I just installed in one of my basses. About as versatile as it is possible to get I suppose. Lots of knerbs...
  3. I put Mike Pope with H/L mids and act/pass sw love it

    I put a flexcor in my fender while keeping the N3 Jazz pickups. It took the overall sound to the next level. Volume-tone, blend, bass-treble, high mid-low mid, active-passive switch has given me great versatility and clarity. Here is a link to some different preamps and pickup configurations and how they sound.

  5. I did a vol-act/pas, vol, bass-treb, hi-lo mid, pass tone-coil tap
