Very simple

My luthier sent me here to pick up a pre amp for my bass upgrade. It was easy to find. He installed it, now that bass is an absolute MONSTER.

Just what I needed...

Replaced the Markbass preamp on my Cort GB Modern 4 with this...vast improvement in tone and output. Plus I actually enjoyed wiring and installing with the very clear diagram. Couldn't be happier with this.
Due to the great service Brian and Max provide here at Fat Bass Tone, they're always the first place I look whenever the modding bug bites.

DESCRIPTION

Give your bass some ballz with one of the most powerful preamps available. With 16-18dB of boost/cut available, the Aguilar OBP3 can really add (or cut) a lot to any and all of the three frequency bands. Carefully chosen switchable mid frequencies (400 & 800Hz) allow you to be heard amongst your bandmates.

Our Aguilar OBP3 Bass Preamp Custom Kits include the components that you need to install this in your bass.

This kit includes:

  • Aguilar OBP-3 module
  • Potentiometers and switches (if applicable)
  • Stereo Jack
  • 2 Battery Clips

This kit does NOT include:

  • Pickups
  • Knobs

Black round switches included with configurations requiring switches.

Prewired OBP-3 Bass Preamps are wired for 9V operation.

We offer the custom kits kits in both pre-wired and non-prewired. These customs kits go a step further than the standard Aguilar kits and provide more of the components needed. Pre-wiring delivers you a preamp that is almost to the finish line, just the final couple connections and installation into the bass is all you need to do.

**Sorry international bassists, but US Dealers are not authorized to ship Aguilar OBP Custom Kits outside of the US. Please contact us if you are having trouble finding Aguilar products in your home country.
