    TONE MONSTER 3 Band preamp.

    I don't have a bunch of experience with this thing, it came out of a custom bass project that went south (bad neck, terrible excuse for a builder who wouldn't back it up, but no issues with the preamp).

    It is a functional preamp. It has a stacked pot for B/T, Mid, Pan, and Volume. No bypass, but if you wanted to wire one in, you could. There appears to be a gain adjustment as well. 9v operation.

    There's a set of gold knobs that will fit it for $10 extra, if you need them. It appears to fit most standard knob sets.

    Asking $35 obo shipped to the US

    It sounds like a pretty basic preamp. It boosts and cuts the signals pretty averagely. It functions well and doesn't have any horrendous hiss, buzz, or scratch to it.
    Personally, I feel like I'd be able to tell you more if the pickups were a little more interesting, but they were pretty basic too.
    I'd say it reminds me a lot of the basic 3 band you'd find in most import basses.

    Hope that helps.
