    Hi Bass Players i need some info on this Pre.
    Does anybody on TB use this Preamp for bass because i found one (KTG-1) in the local used guitar store.
    Its selling for $345 but because i know him `sort of` he said $250.He says it could work alright with a bass set-up.
    I have a Sansamp RPM and the amp i use is Stereo so maybe i can run a clean & dirty with the KTG-1 & RPM ??
    Any feedback would be great !
    Thanks TB`ers.

    usually, guitar pres are rolled off on the bottom to suit guitar more. it might work for bass, though at that price i'd definitely try before i buy.

    Thanks JimmyM,
    I did ask him about testint it first.
    I may give it a pass though.
    He also has an `MIJ` 85 Jazz Bass Special.Its pretty banged up but its playable. The headstock decal is totally peeling off & the neck & body has a few chips.
    I could fix this bass up, it has th exact same body as my LYTES & p/u too only thing is...
    he wants $1000 for it.I love them basses but im not getting ripped off.
    NO WAY MATEY.

    IMO, $1K for that bass is way out of line, which now makes me wonder if the price on the duncan pre is too high too.

    He's Aussie. Adjust the currency as needed.

    well then $920(US) is still WAY too much for it.

    JohnK is right theres now way i would pay 1k for that bass unless it was in perfect mint condition but its not.Its got a few dings & other things that will cost to fix so it will cost even more than 1k.
    Im letting the KTG-1 go because its not for bass, it can work but im going for something more focused.
