I had a great trip to see Brian yesterday. I decided it was time to check out that Benavente Preamp in my own bass and all I can say is w00t! This thing kills. Im blown away at the way this thing sounds. Chunky lows, barky mids and crystal clear in the highs. The preamp has no preloaded EQ curves so when its set flat so theres no coloration of your tone when its set at center detent. Im stunned that more people arent using these. Ill try and post some sound clips for you guys later. I also got to play some awesome Benaventes. My GAS for these are getting overwealming.
