Hey all I'm a beginner bassist and i got myself a Squier VM Jazz '77. Now i've been wanting to make it active for awhile cause i want it to be able to sound more 'modern' and 'clear', and i found myself a Sire preamp. Question is, will it fit on my bass, or will it even work at all? Will it affect the tone of my bass on neutral EQ? On a side note, i found that running my bass through a DI (Hartke Bass attack VXL) and into an audio interface much brighter sounding than if i just plug it straight into the interface. Will i be needing the DI if i were to install the preamp? thanks a lot!
