Oi Ken (smith)

  1. well....i made the decision to dump the kubicki not long ago and got a KSD v70j 5er, from talkbasses own brian barret, who had to get a new preamp put in just before he shipped it down under to me..just curious, when i turn the volume all the way down on the bass it stil pumping it out rather softly.....

    great basses by the way.....i want a 70j 4 and 60j 4...

    well you could probably be better served int he pickups forum, but is it an active pre or a passive one? If it is passive, you probably just need a pot w/ a larger resistance. If it is active, it could be more complicated, or it could be the same problem depending on the particulars of the pre.
  3. its a brand new ken smith preamp, pots and all from what im aware of..that ken sent out himself to brian before he sent it out to me....from what ive been told..
