    Hi folks,
    I just purchased an Aguilar Db 925 preamp here on Talkbass, and I’m wondering if any of you have found that it distorts easily.

    I have only tried it with a Warwick Rockbass Corvette $$ 5 string so far. The preamp actually sounds awesome with this bass. The issue is that the input overdrives unless I dial back on the bass volume.

    The Warwick has a pretty high output, but it isn’t as hot as my Stingray 5 string.

    I sent an email to Aguilar to see if there’s an internal trim pot or anything.

    anyone else have this issue?

    For any of you who care - heard back from tech support at Aguilar Amplification. There is no internal trim pot for gain adjustment.
    It also cannot run at 18 v to gain headroom and will be damaged with 18 v application per the folks at Aguilar.

    I have that Pre and for a small 2 tone pedal its amazing. FET Bass and Treble. with 18 db on both. Very similar to the Sadowsky. I use 9v only. These pedals were not made for 18 v power. I bought the Aguilar to put at the beginning of my pedalboard (before the buffer) and using the sadowsky when I don't need the pedals. I love the simplicity of both.
