I'm building a new bass and I have a set of single coil Nords I slapped in there to see how it sounds before I send the body off for paint. Originally I was going to get a Audere 2 band for it but man, it sounds pretty sweet as is. So now I' m wondering if I should bother will all that fancy pre-amp stuff for this build. Well it sound more sweet with the Audere? Have any of you guys/gals had the Audre with some nords and then changed your mind and gone back to a simple passive setup?
