Tone Monster

Love the preamp. It turned my bass into a tone monster. I spent several weeks researching different preamps because of the terrible stock one that came with the bass. I came across Fat Bass Tone's custom kits. I selected the pre-wired kit I wanted and I'm glad I did. All I had to do after removing the old items, was solder the pickups, the battery wires from the holder, and connect the common wires to the correct areas. Also, purchased new knobs to go with this set up. Fast response, shipping and good wiring diagram, makes FBT the place to go for your bass needs.

Aguilar OBP-3 Bass Preamp

I installed this preamp in a Tobias Classic 5 bass. It has lots of tone shaping capability. It is very clean and articulate with plenty of bite on the treble end, strong/articulate mids, and plenty of low end!

Great sound. Provided circuit diagram was very helpful.

Max was extremely helpful, I would have failed completely otherwise

I ordered the aguilar obp3 and made several mistakes along the way.

Max was incredibly open and communicative and helpful.

I ended up having to send it back to him to wire it uo for me, and he only charged me what i would've paid originally for a pre-wired one!

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.
