    Does anyone know the difference between these two Bartolini preamps.

    I can't seem to find the info on the Bartolini website.:confused:

    I was just thinking to myself what was the difference between the NTMB and the NTCT. I beleive the NTCT is three-band, like the NTMB, but with the mids being cut only, i beleive you can buy a mid boost to make it be like the NTMB. The NTBT is a two-band cut/boost.

    Thanks for the reply, PortraitofTracy.

    I finally found the drawings of the two preamp. The NCTC is a 3-band with the mids module and the NTBT is a 2 band. Now to figure out which and what ones are boost only and which ones are just boost.

    The bottom line is that I was thinking about buying an NCTC from a guy on Bassgear for for my US Masters. Which is a 2 pickup and 3 knob bass.

    I don't think that I am going to go for it since I can't fit the mids module in the cavity along with the preamp and battery. I need just an NTBT.
