Guys, I had a tech install an Audere 4band into an old Carvin LB76 of mine this week. He called me last night to let me know it was ready, but he warned me that the pot shafts were really long, and as a result the knobs stick off the bass. Of course if one gets hit, it could bend the shaft and damage it. I haven't seen the bass in sight yet, and for all I know the knobs may not be that far off the body, ( I mean a 16th or 24th of an inch shouldn't be that bad I suppose right?) but has anyone else had this sort of problem before when swapping preamps? Is there a potential fix? Or do you guys think the tech doesn't know what he was doing? I talked with another member on here who had somewhat of the same setup done, and he let me know he had no issues at all. Weird..... Ideas? Thoughts?
