Was there ever an Aggie OBP-3 that was boost only?

    Well, I did a search to find general info about the preamp, and I saw a ridiculous number of posts saying it was boost only, when the site says it's boost AND cut. Maybe an early version was boost only?

    Note that one of the people saying it was boost only had one in their bass, so I'm not sure what the heck's going on there.

    The original OBP-1 was a two band, boost only unit. It's still available.

    The OBP-3 is the new 3 band w/ cut and boost.

    I know the OBP-1 was boost only, but a lot of the replies (including the one by the guy who HAS it!) were in topics where the OBP-1 never entered the conversation.

    My guess is that someone had what they knew as "the Aguilar preamp" and didn't know what model it was or even that there's a couple out there. THe OBP-3 is relatively new to the market.
