I would like to know your opinion and your experience!!Thanks a lot ;)

    For me when it comes to Delano pickups, I've always stayed with the Glockenlang 3band preamp. It maintains the true clarity of the the Delano pickups but still adding what you need from the preamp.

    I'm sure the OBP3 would work fine with the pickups. But the Delano+Glockenklang combo is really something special. Though likely to be more clean and even that the Bart+Aguilar setup. You will have a much wider range of tonal adjustment on the Glock pre too.

    No ugliness to the Aguilar OBP-3 which is a super nice preamp. But I've found staying with any preamp where as you can adjust or tweak in the back of the preamp is what I like. You can't do that with the OBP-3. It's a matter of knowing how much to increase or decrease by way of the knobs.
