Hello everyone. Just copped a mid '90's Yamaha TRB 5 for next to nothing, nearly new. Owner never got around to playing. Bass is incredible but lacks nastiness. I'm sure the pickups are doing their job but I'm definitely thinking about either installing a new preamp (Aggie OBP I reckon) or tinkering with the idea of using something like the Tech 21 Sansamp Bass driver with the EQ section. I guess my question is can you use the EQ section of the Sansamp without the distortion if you want to. I do want a bit of grit but not lots of distortion. Any opinions appreciated, even different onboard pre's if people have opinions.
