    I'm want to buy lane poor soap bar for a luthier's bass and I was thinking of aguilar OBP3 preamp for it. my second choice is the ASB-3SB from basslines.

    I play mostly heavy metal but I want a versatile bass.

    wich setup would be better? (and yes I found NOS lane poor 6 string soap bars)

    I have a Lane Poor soapbar pickup in my 5 string fretless. I've got it wired directly to the output jack (no tone, no volume, nothin')... it sounds awesome and I have never felt it needed any EQ. I used to have a Lane Poor active preamp in there, but I took it out because it sounded so good without it. That's my 2 cents! They are awesome pickups and I am sure you will be happy no matter what. I will let other people chime in who have actually tried those two preamps you mention.

    thx mushroo.

    I mean no offense but I'll put the info as soon as my lane poor are shipped wich will be probably next week. I know what money can do and I dont want to lose this opportunity :) I think the guy said he got a couple of lane poor PU left (not only soap bars)because he was one of the guy building the PU for lane. I'll probably put a new thread to give the info

    No worries, I am all set in the Lane Poor department, so I wouldn't dream of outbidding you... welcome to the LP club :)

    That being said... shoot me a PM if your guy has a P or JJ set available... they are only going to go up in value!
