Where do I go to get a preamp?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by LonghornBass, Jun 23, 2002.


  1. I just recieved my MTD Heir 5 from Bassdr and I love it! Next thing on the list is to slap a preamp inside. My question is...where do I look to find one, and who will install it? Can I just find a guitar tech in the yellow pages? Should I find a tech first, then order the preamp through him/her? I saw someone selling an upgraded MTD Beast in the DudePit with the American MTD preamp in that was installed by Mike Lull. Could I just send the bass into Tobias's shop and have him do the install? As you can see, I don't even know where to start. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks

    If you love it, then why the new preamp? No use messing with a good thing.
     
  3. Iplaybass,
    I want to put a preamp in because:
    I like to tweak with things
    I think putting a 3-band bart pre would make it a super-killer bass for under 800 bones.
    Anyone have any thoughts?
     
  4. I suggest going to your best local luthier and ordering a Bart preamp through him and having him install it on your bass.
