TRB preamp

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by tyburn, Jan 29, 2002.


  1. just wondering what i could replace the preamp in my TRB 5 fretless with.

    while it does it's job and has a big output, it's not very compassionate to my fretless tone, noisey etc

    has anybody done this and to what ends.

  2. Seymour Duncan make one voiced specifically for fretless.
     
  3. cheers, i'll lookinto it.

    i have been experimenting with the trim pots and wheels, perhaps i'll play with that before i spend :)

    i think that's the steve bailey model, right? if it is, it's a pretty hot preamp.

    It's a five pot bass so you probaby want to stick with that configuration. There are several 3 band Bartolini preamps available.

    Those pots in the TRB don't do much.
