    I've enjoyed my ibanez btb505 quite a bit but always felt it lacked something with the onboard eq.. So today I added the new nathan east ne-1 preamp that is found in the newer yamaha bb's and it's a HUGE step up. Much cleaner and deeper tone and has MANY more useful tones with the addition of the mid toggle switch. I only had to add one small hole to add the switch and the bass looks really pimpy now. Just thought I'd share.

    Btw, i'm planning on selling the btb preamp if anyone is interested. Thanks.
     
  3. Yamaha sells onboard NE-1 preamp kit? or was it a second hand gutted from another bass? I'm curious.
