Reconfiguring a Bart preamp? Can it be done?

    I just acquired a Bart preamp out of a Lakland 55-94. I was wondering if I could change the pots to accomodate the holes in my Cort GB75 bass by stacking the controls.

    Vol - push pull p/a
    Bass/Treble
    Bal/Mid

    Or

    Vol/Bal
    Bass/Trbl
    Mid
    Switch for passive active

    I've also been seeing some threads about changing to 500k pots and wondered if that was a concern functionally.

    Is this a real ignorant about bass electronics question?

    You can't combine the balance control with anything else unless you get an expensive MEC stacked pot.

    You can't change the value of the preamp's pots.
