    I have my eye on a lakland DJ4 and it has this upgrade. Kind of new to this stuff and wondering what all it would do to the bass and sound?
  2. You're in for a treat. Great sounding preamp that elevates the already excellent DJ4 to new heights. DR FatBeams complete the package for that J-bass tone.

    I just got a used DJ5 with the same preamp, but also has Bartolini B-axis pickups. It sounds phenomenal! I say go for it.
