    perhaps you are thinking of an onboard preamp, rather than just the pots and wiring. in which case, it would be rather hard to find a good quality onboard preamp for less than $50, but you could always try ebay.

    If you're putting together a bass from scratch, why pinch pennies on the last link in the tone chain before the amp?

    If money is tight, you'd be better off going passive at first and then upgrading later when the budget allows... www.carvin.com is a good source too...
