Pre-amp boost

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Laus, Aug 15, 2003.


  1. NB: if this is not the right forum please move to the appropriate.

    When playing live, I use a wireless transmitter. By using a passive bass, I loose too much gain. With an active bass, it's allright.

    That's why I guess I need a little boost before the bodypack.

    What is the best option? Building a simple onboard pre-amp in my bass(Epi Thunderbird IV, 2 humbuckers? Or something else?

    I don't like to use a booster after the wireless unit because that gives too much compression. I've tried that, but the sound with an active bass is still a lot better with almost no compression because of the unit(a Nady XL VHF btw.)

    Thanx for any tips or response!

    Laus.
