    I'm installing a preamp on my new bass but still haven't decided whether to go Bartolini or Aguilar. My bass has Bart soapbar pups and some heavy woods like Bubinga, Zebrawood , and Imbuya. Since I know woods are the overall factor of tone, just wandering which preamp would better suit the bass. Im looking for fatness, tight and punchy sound. Thanks again..... :bassist:

    2 band or 3 band?

    I'm really think it's going to be 3 band.

    If you want fatness, consider the Demeter onboard preamp. To me, it has all the transparency of the Bartolini but sounds a lot bigger. I've heard a lot of installers complain about the Aguilar being noisy.
