So, I have read a few threads and gathered some very keen insights on equipment options and overall tone options for new project bass assembly. All of which were helpful in one degree or another, but I still have some reservations. Please humor me. The bass neck is a Fender American Deluxe Jazz neck with a rosewood fingerboard and the body is a Fender American Deluxe Precision, alder with a PJ pup configuration. I have selected Seymour Duncan Quarter pounders pups and am looking to purchase a preamp that will give me the same basic Fender AM Deluxe features, passive/active toggle, master volume, pan-pot for pup selection, and a 3 band EQ. So, I am completely leaning towards the Audere 3ZB in an 18volt configuration, since I have a precut battery compartment and all. Now, I am not married to this idea at all, but since this bass is being built for a punk/modern/alt/classic/metal bar band cover project, I will need to think about changing tones a bit and really want a swiss-army bass that can handle most of what I throw at it and not really sound out of place. I am totally open to hearing about other active or even passive preamps if they sound like a versatile option for me. It would be really nice to cover 60 song evening with one bass. Any thoughts TB?
