The OBP-3 was installed in my Ibanez SR1800E. The preamp that came with the Ibanez was effective, however it failed. Along came the OBP-3 to save the day. After installing it I didn’t expect much based on my experience with the Ibanez preamp. I plugged in, set the bass to passive, played a few notes. Sounds nice. Then I played a single note and while it rang out I switched it to activate….HOLY WOW!!! This preamp blew me away! The OBP-3 is only wired for 9-volt and it has more oomph than the Ibanez. I would go as far as to say it has twice as much output as the factory preamp. I can’t imagine what would happen with 18-volts running through it. The power is amazing, the tone is incredible. I ordered it pre-wired and the pots that are included are great. Needless to say, I love this preamp and would not hesitate to buy another one if the need arises! Fat Bass Tone was great to work with. The gentleman I spoke with gladly answered all my questions. They shipped exactly when they said they would and if not for the Post office, I would have received it quickly. But that was my fault for picking them instead of another carrier. Thanks Aguilar and Fat Bass Tone!
Awesome product.Good service.Highly recommended
The Prewired OBP-3 is a great option for you to have a new preamp in your bass with out you doing a whole lot of soldering. U will do a little but not a lot I love it thank you Fat Bass Tone. This is so Great ..!!
I recently purchased a pre wired obp3 from fat bass tone and had a few questions. Max was super patient and helpful and even followed up to make sure things went well. I will definitely buy from these guys again!!
Got exactly what I ordered, got it pre wired cause I’m lazy. nice job.
