    I've searched but found almost nothing here. The price is nice-- $99. To a budget-minded hobbyist, it's tempting.

    Question: Have you heard this one, or would there be something in the lower half of the price range that you're more enthusiastic about?

    Background: I don't own a Stingray. I have a Bart MM4CBC in an Ibanez Mikro 5-string, with a Bart soap bar BC4CBC-B at neck. I like this interaction passive and now I want to add a pre. My objective is a Stingray-like instrument with the option of blending in a little neck tone. Perhaps this is mongrelizing the aesthetic. You're free to say so.

    There are other preamp options: Audere, Bart, Noll, Nordstrand. That's about as high as I want to spend. I have Audere in a Jazz. It's nice, but I'm open to others.

    Thank you.

    Edit: I use this bass for smooth-jazz material. It records well, and has the right amount of clank-lite, when needed

    Bump....curious about thoughts on this vs the East 4 knob. Looking to get the 2-band tone I love into my 4 knob 1999 Stingray 4H.

    The Duncan STC-2C-BO can get pretty much that MM sound for about $60. They also make a STC-3M3 MM pre amp for just over $100.
