best pre-amp for cutting feedback

Discussion in 'Amps, Mics & Pickups [DB]' started by JC JC, Mar 21, 2013.

  1. What are the best products for me to consider?
    I'm looking at tone shaping capability, but I primarily need a device with a phase shifter and the ability to easily dial out feedback.

    Someone recommended a "L.R. PARA Acoustic DI".
    The "Fishman Pro-eq Platinum Bass" also looks appealing.
    Good advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The discontinued fishman dual para DI does this well and can be found used.

    I haven't seen one used for quite a while. It's definitely on my to get list.

    You might consider the Headway EDB-1. Costs more than the Fishman or the Baggs, but several have come up in the TB classifieds recently for as little as $200.00. It has a five band EQ, Phase Reverse, Three Position input impedance switch, Three position High Pass filter, and a variable Notch Filter.

    The Radial PZ-Pre would fit your bill; I use one with good success. Looks like the PZ-Deluxe might work too, but I've never tried one.

    IME & IMO - My fishman plat pro EQ never really helped taming feedback, plus I don't like the sound I get out of it. I use it only for the slab nowadays...
    EDB1 FTW!!!
  9. To revive an old thread rather than start a new one...

    I found one for me, and a few more (for about double what I just paid!). SearchTempest is pretty awesome for quickly searching through nationwide craigslist ads for what you want! Also, a good way to waste a bunch of time!
