    First, dispense my English.
    Second. After reading 1 million of forums ( with my complication when having that to translate them ), I need expert help to attack with but sign to the my Ampeg B100R ( rocket bass ), since I utilize Underwood pick up and ropes nylon, weedwhacker and gut.
    That you create preamp that he is better? ( K and K of Golligur ), do I model? Sound but I do the cleaning ?
  2. I'll be honest, it's hard to understand your post. I assume that you are asking what preamp would work best with an Underwood pickup.

    I've had limited experience with preamps, but I've been very happy with the Fishman Platinum preamp. It has a very simple but powerful eq section, and several tools that are useful in controlling feedback, including a phase switch and a high pass filter. Batteries seem to last a long time in it as well, and it's built very durably. It is available from Bob Gollihur on his site, his prices and service are good, and he ships internationally.

    Indeed I have the doubt between fishman and k&K preamp 97.
    As it will work better with underwood ?

    No K&K! Not good with Underwood. Fishman yes!

    The input impedance of the K&K is too low for the Underwood.
    Go with the Fishman!
