I just picked up a MIM Fender Jazz deluxe active V and the output is lower than my Passive P-Bass with a Darkstar in it. My question is . If I replace the Pre with an Audere will I increase my Gain or will it stay the same. Also If I replace the Pre and Pickups will that give me the gain increase I am looking for? I like the sound of this bass very much but without a 2 channel Amp Or a 2 Channel outboard Pre I am stuck playing with Knobs every time I switch Basses. The other option would be a single channel Preamp Pedal and use it to boost the signal so they are both even? So what would you do and what pickups and pre amp would you use . Or what Preamp would you use?
