Well guys, I am in the middle of a predicament. I am a (death) metal bassist, and i currently play a spector legend 6 string with 2 emg ssd pickups and a 2 band active eq. I am swapping the pickups out with 2 emg-tw's, and I was thinking about getting an audere classic 4 band eq to go with them, however i've been hearing things about them being loud. the other brands ive been looking at are aguilar, acg, delano, and nordstrand, but im leaning to the aguilar if i dont get the aguilar. what I'd like is some ppl who have used these preamps to chime in and let me know what they think about them.
