    Frequently asked questions:

    Q: Weight?
    A: 9.2 pounds

    Q: Can you ship to Canada / Mexico / Italy / other country that is not USA?
    A: No

    Q: Why did you change the preamp?
    A: I didn't like the control layout on the Sadowsky preamp (bass boost + treble boost stacked, treble cut on separate knob). The Audere has a very simple control layout.

    Q: How does the Audere preamp sound compared to the original?
    A: I can't honestly hear a difference between preamps with the controls set flat. Search the forum; I'm sure there are plenty of opinions.

    Q: Is this a good bass for metal?
    A: Oh heck yes. \m/
