    Hey,

    I just put a Bartolini 3.3 2band preamp in my Yamaha BB-X. Here are some clips I recorded in the different pickup positions. I appologize that my playing is absolutley terrible, and if I can say so I am normally better. if the links dont work try copying and pasting them into the address.

    Heres the P pickup only:

    heres both pickups:

    I micd my amp and this is all through my computer, but you can get an idea of the tone.

    Sounds pretty good. Since we don't know what it used to sound like, we really can't make any assumptions about the preamp you installed.

    listen to early no doubt music. That is a BB1600... they have some nice growl, but lack the tonal "sparkles" that you can add with active electronics.
