    i've got theis frankenstien bass which amazingly cost me about 350$ yes sounds fantastic, it's really amazing yet the playability is not very good, the sound offsets it though

    i'm rambling :D :D

    anyway it's got ultrajazzes in it an an aguilar OBP-1 preammp in it, i would very much like to put an active passive switch in it, is this possible? And if it is how would i go about doing it?

    check the aguilar website, they've got all the wiring diagrams you can handle for the OBP-1 and 3. I hope that helps :)

  4. It's possible with any and every preamp that does not have PCB-mount pots that would hinder modification. The OBP-1 is a box with wires sticking out of it, so you can certainly wire it in any fashion that you want.
