Here's the situation: I recently installed a Bartolini NTMB into my MTD Kingston 5. I went with the 18V option for the extra headroom. The NTMB is fantastic, but there's one problem: I can't use my Sansamp with it. The signal is just too hot, it puts the BDDI into overdrive. Turning down the Drive and Presence knobs doesn't help. There's no active/passive option on its input. Turning down the bass doesn't help, as soon as I dig in, the distortion returns. Turning down the NTMB's gain via the gain control pot in the control cavity helped a little, but not enough. The only way I was able to get around this was to bypass the Sansamp entirely and plug into my QSC power amp, which actually sounds pretty good, but lacks warmth and renders the Sansamp useless. Is there anything I can do?
