    Yeah, it looks about as basic as you can get as far as preamps go.

    kind of a limited freq. range too, no?
    I like the simpleness though
     
  7. If it is done right we wont need much EQ it does look like it is missing a input gain/active passive control.
    EDIT: It does have a push pull volume control for active and passive,but doesnt have any adjustable input beyond that.

    Why does almost everyone voice low mids so high? 160 range is better. So many good amps and pre's out there with the wrong eq points. IMO of course.

    I wasn't talking about the EQ.
    The Frequency response is what I meant...:)

    Huh?!? :eyebrow:

    From Schro website:
    You call that limited?

    Maybe it should extend to the visible light spectrum. :smug:
     
  11. Adjustable Mid frequencies would be best, but I like somewhere around 200-250Hz for Low Mids.

    Doubt I will ever buy an amp/pre without at least one band of parametric/semi-parametric mids again. Just so darned flexible.
     
  13. That has to be the most no-frills preamp ever.

    That should be perfect for those of you who like it "flat". :)

    Only 4dB of boost for passive inputs? I find that the Aguilar 10dB is just about right, especially for weaker vintage pups.

    It states that pulling the volume knob out will give a 4db gain increase for passive basses.

    I kind of dig that pre. I like the minimalist approach they took. But sound and price point will surely be the biggest variables left.

    I like the simple lay out. Just not the low mid eq point. The rest are good. Yeah, I wonder how much it is?

    I'd say this is about the most underwhelming TB response to any piece of new gear by a respected manufacturer ever.

    Has anyone here actually heard it?
    I really like the simplicity of it!
