    Hey yall, the volume (push/pull) pot on my '94 Streamer is kind of squashed due to my own clumsiness. It still works but there is no detent and the knob turns a complete 360 degrees. The push/pull active/passive feature doesn't work and I'm afraid the pot is gonna crap out on me at any time (It's my main gigging bass right now). My question is what would be a suitable preamp replacement by Bartolini-essentially 2 band (treble and bass) that would include all new pots for all knobs (i.e. volume knob replacement)?
    Thanks in advance for your responses. I've post on the Warwick forum to no avail and have gotten thoroughly confused by the MEC electronics website:confused:.....

    Are the MECs in your Streamer active or passive? I think most are passive, but I believe they also make active models.

    If the pickups are passive, the standard Bart preamp and wiring harness should work with them. However, I'm not sure why you'd replace the whole preamp if all that's broken is the volume pot. :confused: Do you not like the MEC preamp?
