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.

    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.
