    Would it be possible, and by that I mean a good idea, to use a SD Pickup Booster to go directly from Bass to power amp?

    It is my understanding the PB has 25db gain, which is about what the Ampeg SVP CL is rated.

    I have a passive jazz bass and a fretless with active bartolini MK1 and I wondered if the PB would give enough juice to push amp like a "real" preamp"

    Please keep in mind I have little to no idea of what I am talking about.

    my freind is doing just that and says the end result is Awesome. He owns a music store so he gets to try out a bunch of stuff.
