Aria Pro II SB1000 electronics?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by carl-anton, Oct 17, 2003.

  1. Has anybody any information on the preamp of the legendary Aria Pro II SB1000 with the 6-position switch? I have not used mine for years because the onboard preamp is broken and it doesn't sound good i passive mode, I think. So does anybody know where I could buy a new one, or are there schematics on them somewhere?

    Thanks :)

    Sorry, no information here.

    You could try the Japanese Aria site (, as they've been producing the SB-1000 reissue model for a few years now. I believe John Taylor is playing one of the reissues these days.

    Mine doesn't sound terrible in passive mode, but it's definitely better active.
  3. Don't you think the bass sounds a tad too mid-rangy in passive mode? (Maybe I'm just too fond of my Stingray these days...)
  4. Haha, I guess we edited our posts at the same time :D

    Thanks David. I don't know why I wasn't able to find it.
    Maybe I could buy a new preamp from the factory. We'll see.
