    How long of a cord (the stereo one)do you think I can use between my K&K bass max/trinity mic combo and the pre/mixer box ? Could some kind of loading accure (sp?)

    I found an 18 foot stereo cord by Monster Cable that worked just fine with my Golden Trinity. Sounded the same as the little shorty that came with it originally. No extra loading that I could hear.

    I know I'll probably get slammed for this but I have my preamp attached to my tailpiece. I have a foot long cord strung between the Bass Max and the pre.
    I doubt there would be much signal loss as long as you have a good cord though...

    I used to do this with my Areican Standard, which is so ugly that the preamp stuck to the tailpiece actually IMPROVED the look of the bass. Now I keep my Trinity/DBM mixer/pre stuck to my stool.

    Yeah, the one I sit on when I play...
