Lakland Skyline JO / audere bass-pre-amp

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by kevbassman, Mar 16, 2008.

  1. Has anyone done this modification?
    Installing a Audere JZ pre-amp in a Lakland Joe Osborn Skyline bass?

    I recently bought a Nordy VJ5 that has the Norstrand J pick-ups & the Audere pre-amp. I love the Audere pre-amp. I own a Sadowsky . I hate to say this but I love the tone, etc. on the Nordy / audere than my Sadowsky. And I love my Sadowsky!).
    I would like to do a modification on my JO bass. It's passive, & has Lindy Fralins in it. I love the bass, it's a 4 string that has that MoJo.

    Would love to see if anyone else has done this, what Audere JZ pre-amp they went with, etc.

    Thanking you in advance!

    I did this for a while with my JO5 and ended up with a J-Retro. Mostly because I liked the layout better. Both sound great and if you love the Audere Nordstrand, you'll love it equally in the Lakland.

  3. Thanks Edwin!

    Not a JO but a Fender 75 RI with the Audere and Nord NJ4SE pickups ...
    It's my take on that "modern" sound all the Sadowsky palyers rave about, love it


    :) ... Go for it man

    I have a JO4 with Audere, the vol/bal, 3 band one. I love it. It really sounds great.
