Hey, I need some advice. I recently got an alembic for 450 dollars. A beat up 5 string spoiler. It had no electronics. It was a pity to see such a fine instrument as beat up as it was. I called alembic to see how much they would bill me for spoiler electronics and they quoted me for 850 $U.S. Too much money for electronics in my opinion, and considering what I paid for the bass, not worth it. Can someone weigh in on what preamp would work best with this bass? Im thinking of a 2 band, 4 knob preamp, but suggestions would gladly be taken. Seriously I considered the acg preamp, but it was a bit too expensive as well. I decided to go with the glockenlang 2 band 4 knob preamp. Here are some specs... - Volume with pushpull for Active/Passive selection - Blend - Treble: +/- 18 dB@18 KHz (tone roll-off in passive mode on 3 band 5 knob and 2 band 4 knob versions) - Bass: +/- 14 dB@40 Hz Any thoughts on glockenlang electronics?
