Hello! I have a 1978 Gibson RD Artist bass, in a classic tobaccoburst finish. I love the way it plays...but not the way it sounds. I would love for it to be my main axe that I can play hard and often... I own another RD Artist (that I do love the sound of), and I am very familiar with the tones from the MOOG active electronics. A quick search yielded interesting results from a surprising amount people that DID NOT like the MOOG electronics at all. I have decided I would like to remove the MOOG, and replace it with a more modern preamp. I am a simple man, I want a simple preamp to power the stock pickups of the bass. I do not want to drill or modify the body. I do not want push/pull pots with all these bells and whistles and 3 switches that have all these really cool but over the top features. I do want to keep all the stock knobs on the bass...so a 4 knob preamp, with 2 switches is ideal. If it is only a single switch preamp, I'll have the other one be non functional for aesthetic purposes. I want it to be a straight forward, but powerful and musical preamp. I want it to elevate my bass to its true potential and tap into its beefiness and enormous tonal capabilities. I'm not really on a budget...I just want to find "the one." Thank you!
