Preamp to suit Bartolini dual coil pickups - sorted/purchased
Posted 09 January 2017 - 03:28 PM
Recently I purchased a Lakland 55-01, whilst it sounds fine, I've decided to swap out the Bart MK-1 Pickups and Preamp.
Already I have Bartolini humbucker (dual coil) USA replacements on the way (collecting at NAMM actually), but i'm looking for peoples experiences with preamps they've had installed with Bart dual coils.
Of course I could just go with the Bart NTMB-F Pre, but thought I'd see what peoples experiences are, as I don't have a lot of experience with different preamps (let alone with specific pickups), having spent my playing life playing probably 80% passive basses.

Big fan of these Guitar and Bass Jam Tracks

I mean, perhaps there aren't any bad combinations?? Do people think that it really matters what pickups are used with what preamp?
You'd like to think that a companies preamps will sound 'best' with their pickups, but is there really a difference?!

I think Bart are really underrated - and have become stuck with an image that they are the "off the shelf option" - there's a reason why a load of luthiers use them. They do the job great.

This, combined with the USA built MK-1 replacement dual coils coming from Bartolini (via Elrick, also at NAMM), should be a very cool combination for the 55-01
