I have a 4H MM Stingray with 3 band EQ. I love the construction of the bass - so nice - tuners and bridge are great, love the truss rod adjustment, 6-bolt neck joint is stable, oiled neck feels great, compensated nut, great fretwork, etc. My problem is that it seems like the preamp is coloring the sound in a way that is the opposite of what I want. I want a subdued treble, and punchy low-mids. With the EQ at the center detents, it has a very bright treble and lack of mids - so I end up using outboard EQ to roll off some treble and boost low mids. I don't use the onboard mid EQ because it sounds too harsh - 500Hz is higher than where I want the boost. Can anyone recommend a replacement preamp that isn't so bright and scooped? What is the Nordstrand MM 2 band EQ like? Thanks for any help!
