    Any of you have tried replacing the Js and preamp on the Yamaha BB1500A with success?

    IMO, the sound from the stock Js and preamp are acceptable but I am looking for a more fat and tighter + refined tone (acid-jazz) with more flexibility in the mids control.

    Too short of cash to upgrade to a new bass hence looking at this alternative way to enhance the bass tone.
