What kind of preamps does Tobias use on his custom basses?

    Is it a bartolini to go with the bart pickups he uses or another type?

    Yes, it's a Bart. However, the preamp that Mike has made for him combined with the very unusual Bartolini active pickups sounds VERY different from any other Bartolini pickup/pre I've ever heard. I'm actually not a fan of the Bart sound, and absolutely love the MTD sound.... much more crisp, wide and 'alive' than the 'stock' Bart sound (which is very nice... just not for me) that you hear in many other custom basses that use Barts.
