    Hi,
    I have Steve Harris signature bass and strings and I'm hesitating which preamp to buy to get as close as possible to his tone. Darkglass B7k, Le Bass or sansamp or other. I would really appreciate your expertise. Thanks

    Crank your amp volume up and play lightly. You should pluck the strings in the spot between the pickup and bridge, over the edge of the pickguard. I don't think that a preamp would matter a lot here.

    EDIT: a picture is worth a thousand words, this is the spot I tried to describe:

    Thanks Flippy. True I already do that and it's close enough :) but I'm looking for the right preamp for Steve's tone (eq etc..)
