    What kind of preamps are you guys putting in your Lakland
    DJ5 and JO5's? Why??

    Sadowsky outboard for me. They sound great passive too.

    +1 on both. I took my Sadowsky pre with me to audition the DJ and JO 4 stringers, and I really loved the sound with both basses.

    I pretty much only use the pre when going for that glossy scooped slap sound. Mine is a DJ5 with fralins.

    I've got a J-retro in my DJ5.

    LOVE it. Tons of flexibility.
