    Hi everyone. I'd like to get some info on the Bugatti preamp, but the short blurb on Glock's site is only in German right now. Anyone have any info on it? Features? How does it differ from the Bass Art pre?

    I'm not sure that it's available in the states anymore. They were very similar to the Bass Art Classic though which is an amazing pre-amp.

    The Bugatti Preamp featured a Class A Preamp and Class A EQ, while the Bass Art Preamp "only" had a Class A Preamp but not a Class A EQ (I own one of these Bass Arts and I never missed anything, in fact I doubt that I can hear the difference between those).

    Current production Bass Arts feature Class A Preamp and Class A EQ, so more or less it is a Bugatti without the Stereo DI, just Mono DI.

    That sounds right. The guys at Glock say the BAC is essentially a mono version of the Bugatti - which makes sense given the lack of the stereo DI.

    I've been using a BAC for a few months now and it is one of my hands down favorite pre-amps now. And I've got some pretty nice pre-amps.
