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.

OBP-3 Aguilar custom setup

This setup was awesome and if I didn't get it pre-wired it would have been intense for me to install. The products and pre-wire all installed perfectly into the bass. The Client is happy and loves the sound and power from the preamp. I will use Fatbasstone for EVERY build that comes out of my shop. I only use Aguilar brand electronics and pups.

Aguilar OBP-3 Bass Preamp

This preamp is really good. Installed with ease, even when drilling extra holes for a switch and extra pot. Put it a “plain-Jane” passive 4-string with alnico pickups and the tones that can be dialed in are fat and fantastic. Might be a go-to for bar gigs and some light recording.
