Stomp preamp with eq that you can mute?

  1. Hello,
    I'm looking for a bass preamp with EQ that I can mute. The only thing I see out there that is kind of what I want is the new BBE AcoustiMax. But looking at the EQ freqs, it seems not designed for bass. Oh, I want a stomp version, one that doesn't use batteries.

    any other options?

    +1 This thing is bar none the best you can get. I had one until I got my Sadowsky basses with the pre onboard. BUuy one right away. You won't be disappointed!

    The only problem with the Sadowsky pre, is that it hasn't
    got much output if you are going to use it as your main
    preamp. Its really more for inline or less volume usage.
    Perhaps the Radial or EBS or MXR.
  7. The Sadowsky is a duplicate of the circuit in Sadowsky bass guitars and, as such, is NOT designed to be a preamp circuit suitable for driving most amplifiers. Though it is called a preamp, it is not to be confused with a preamp designed to drive an amplifer......In my opinion the question by wilser is not clear as to what TYPE of preamp they may be looking for.....However, if looking for a substitue or addition to an onboard preamp one could find such a thing in the Sadowsky.....I know I did!!
