Which pre for my Lakland 55-60?

    I recently acquired a Lakland Skyline 55-60. I love everything about the bass, including it's stock pickups tone, but I'm looking to add an onboard preamp. I'm looking for advice on my options.

    I'd like 3 bands of eq, and some kind of active/passive switching. Considering the bass has a standard Jazz bass control plate layout, what kind of options do I have for an onboard pre?

    Thanks. I was checking out the Audere preamps earlier, I'll give the John East a look.

    I'm noticing some models specifically for the Lakland DJ. I'm guessing that bass has a different size control plate... anybody know if that's the case with the 55-60 as well?

    Audere is next to impossible to beat for the price.

    So does anyone know if an Audere will drop in a 55-60?

    I have the NTBT-918 Bartolini and it's awesome and 2-band with a stacked bass/treble and a push pull active/passive volume knob. They make a 3-band version called the NTMB-918.
