    So I'm looking to change the sound of my stingray. I have a two band and find the sound compressed especially when ran into effects. None my other basses have this issue.

    I'm considering an aguilar preamp. Anyone have experience with these on a stingray.

    Are your other basses active or passive?

    with the 2 band being pretty relaxed in the upper midrange, i could see how the ray wouldnt drive a filter very well. any thought to putting in a series/parallel switch?
