So, I really like my T-40. I love the neck, for one, and the vintage look to it. The versatility in tone is amazing for a passive bass, as others here have commented before. Anyway, I've both played and heard a number of friends' active basses recently, and it feels as though they take the aspect of flexibility a higher degree, perhaps? I also wouldn't mind being able to further tweak/enhance my sound without having to necessarily do that on my amp. I've read a lot of good things about Audere preamps, especially so their "clarity" and ability to not really color the sound of the pickups too much. Given that I really like the tone of my T-40's pickups, that quality would be good, no? I was reading up on them a bit, tonight, and started to wonder about how to integrate them with the existing controls on the bass. I think I'll need to just call or email them and ask them about it tomorrow. At any rate, can anyone with more experience with preamps than me comment on this being a good idea or not? Good/bad testimonies on Auderes? EDIT: Oops, I'm sorry. Got some windows of mine mixed up and put it in the wrong forum. Can one of the mods please move this?
