    Has anyone tried a different preamp in their Kingston or Heir?? Im debating this but not sure of the results.
     
  2. Putting a preamp will not change the midrangey tone only add lows or highs to it. A good new pickup like a Bartolini or Basslines will give it a better more balanced tone even w/out a preamp.

  5. I know that Allodox put one in his Kingston 4. Try a search. He had pics and everything.
