    I have done a search and checked George Furlanetto's website.
    i am trying to find info on the FBass preamp.

    i am having a nordstrand put on the to-be-built list, and would like to know how the Fbass pre compares to the aguilar and bartolini preamps.

    any info would be great.

    I thought that George's website did give u a diagram/info on the old and current preamps that are in his Fbasses ?

    To me, the Fbass preamp is less colored than Bart preamps, and not as boomy as the Aggie. The only downside to the F pre IMO is that you can't cut the mids, it's boost only, but other than that, it's very good. I like all three preamps, but another one to throw into the mix would be the Ken Smith 18V system with the switches. I think that it's the best preamp that I've played, but the only downside is the cost which I think is quite pricey.

    Also, the Fbass preamp was on the website last I checked with the diagrams and everything.

    i did find the diagrams, but i was looking for the sonic/tonal differences.

    Thanks guys
