    I have a few completely brand new, never used, Glockenklang Onboard Pre amps available. These are three band versions. These were purchased in bulk for an OEM project (BTW as such they don't come in consumer packaging).

    From the Glock site:

    "The GLOCKENKLANG 3-band onboard preamp is active/passive switchable (at the volume push/pull), has a balance-pot with no volume dip in center-position, a treble-pot with +/- 18 dB@18 KHz in active mode, acting as classical highcut in passive mode, mid-pot +/- 9 dB@550 Hz and a bass-pot with +/- 14 dB@40 Hz. Battery-connection is 9 volts.

    Due to the high performance electronic, in flat position of the eq you can hear no difference between active and passive mode!

    It comes pre-wired with highflexible cables."


    Onboard%20Preamp%203-Band%20400px.

    $125 shipped in the lower 48. These sell for quite a bit more (if you can find them.) This is a nice chance to significantly upgrade your bass for relatively low dollars.

    I only have the three band versions. You could leave the mid knob in the cavity perhaps.

    Statement from Udo, Glockenklang in Germany: Works with active and passive pick-ups!

    Thanks man.



    I have a few left -- get them while the last. This is one of those classic great TB opportunities!

    is it possible to remove the blend pot and still have the system function?

    I'm guessing you could but you'd have to be handy (experimental?) enough to know what to do with the remaining wires.

    I'm can't see any technical reason it wouldn't work though as the blend pot is just that, a blend of two inputs.

    These are some of the cleanest sounding preamps I've ever tried. Great deal.

    They are the most transparent onboard pre I've heard (and I've heard a lot.)
     
  15. Can these preamps be used with 18v ?

    Can this be used as a 4 pot? But with all the features? If so I'll take one!

    You could always leave the mid pot in the cavity if you have room.
