Conklin GT-5 pickups/preamp question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Eric Perry, Oct 29, 2002.


  1. Hi all, I play a Conklin GT-5 that came with the Bartolini MK-1 pickups, and an unknown preamp (It's used on the Cort Curbow). I am thinkin' of upgrading all pickups and electronics cause I love the bass, just not too big on the sound. Any advice for pickups and a preamp. I was thinkin' EMG pickups and an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. If anyone out there has the same bass and did any upgrade work, I'd appreciate a response. Thanks.

    Bart's with an Aguilar pre amp would sound pretty good...or you could go with a bart pre amp as well. There are many choices you will just have to find one you like really.

    I believe the pre amp used in the groove tools series (aside from the Bill Dickens model) is a mighty mite pre amp. I could be wrong.
