I'd say that's fairly informative, neh? Anyway, yeah, my birthday's around the corner (next week) and I'm asking for a preamp for my bass. Like I said, I want it with 3 bands with boost and cut and under $400 CAD. Not TOO big, I don't want to have to do too much routing. Also, one with a mid-> dark/light pot would be great, but I don't expect to find that in one so cheap. Thanks for the help!
