  1. i was just pondering what i should do to my ATK305, i was thinking maybe a new pick-up and/or pre-amp??
    its a great bass, so i don't know if its even worth doing anything to it.
    what do you think??
  2. you could pop in a custom pickup like i did, but keep in mind that it has about 4 times as much output than the stock pickup and WILL clip your amp if you don't play with a soft touch.

    as for the preamp.. you could pop in a 3-band MM preamp by Seymour DUncan, but that will give you pretty much the same sound ( alltho you can push it up to 48v, giving you KILLER lows )
  3. couldn't you just screw the pick-up in closer to the body away from the strings to allow for the higher output...but anyway the lab systems pre-amp i am going to buy has a clip light and input trim level for the different outputs of basses so as to not clip or cause any distortion in the pre-amp.
