Well i just ordered a Demeter Pre-amp. It looks sorta goofy, but you know worst come to worst is I'll sell it. But i don't wana drop 240 into a pair of N4JSE pups and have it sound like crap in the demeter pre. I've pretty much conluded a vintage type of pup would sound like crap through the seemingly "hifi" sound of the demeter. I'm looking to add that extra "edge" or just that bit of growl. I have a pair of Bartolini 9K's but they have NO grow/edge/agressiveness to its tone at all, none what so ever. And they have a muted high end. I figure that the glassy highs + 9k muted high end *MIGHT* equal out and have a good soudning bass. The N4JSE also has a muted high end, so the glassy highs on the demeter again should eqaul out, or not. What do you guys think- NJ4SE + Demeter pre ?. BTW: Bass wood if it matters: Swamp ash with quilt top neck wood: AAA birdseye maple w/ ebony fretboard Thanks in advance- any ideas are welcomed. **Also, anyone know where to get a pair of the like bart 9W4 or w/e quad coil jazz pick ups? I figure quad coil + demter pre = as close to a roscoe as i'm going to get for now.
