    I have an ACG bass with the East preamp in it, and while I appreciate the huge range our tones that can be achieved with this system, I've come to the conclusion that it is simply overkill for what I need, and would like to replace it with something more traditional.

    I'd love to hear recommendations for a preamp that that would cover the following:

    Volume/Pan (stack)
    Mid (or maybe Mid with adjustable frequency stack).

    I know there are a ton of systems out there, but basically what I'm looking for is something that will not overtly color the natural tone of the bass. Just sculpt it a bit.

    Suggestions appreciated!!

    How about a East Retro? Keeps it in the family.

    I'd also consider a Noll / Glockenlang for a clean signal.

    Cool. I didn't know that East did other types of preamps. I'll check it out. Also, I love Glock amps and also didn't know they did bass preamps.

    Thank you!
