    The Sadowsky preamp, in a stomp box, has just been available here in France.
    I think it's quite expensive but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.
    Any opinion of this one ?

    I own a Sadowsky preamp, and wouldn't play my Precision without it! Even with the preamp tone controls flat, it tightens up the sound, adding punch and presence. And of course the tone controls are excellent, particularly to add some brightness to the P-Bass sound.

    It's also effective on my other passive basses, though it really shines with the Precision. Doesn't add much to active basses though.

    It's definitely worth the money if you're using passive pickups.

    I tried a jazz bass through one. I sounded just like Marcus Miller.
