    So, one of my secret tricks is that I love on-board preamps on basses but don't use them as a regular preamp, but as an effect like any other. I play my bass in passive and treat the preamp as a boost/EQ that completely changes the sound.

    Does anyone else treat their basses preamp like an effect? I've heard of people playing at volume around 6 and cranking it to 10 in a similar fashion but I find the incredible boost in the low mids irreplaceable at the start of the chain.
