DESCRIPTION

The Delano Sonar 3 bass preamp is designed for just one purpose: Making a good tone even better.

As an integral part of any active bass guitar, an active EQ has to fulfill countless requirements regarding strength and clarity in tone, power consumption and installation. To meet this challenge perfectly, the time has come for a new onboard preamp: Sonar.

This smart powerhouse delivers the real thing: rocksteady bottom, cutting midrange and naturally brilliant high end. Whether adapting its tone to match the surrounding acoustics, enhancing versatility or increasing your musical expression, this preamp always feels like a natural extension, preserving all the benefits of passive operation: uncoloured, true and focused sound. Comparing the flat-set sound to bypassed full passive action you´ll detect no difference. Matchless. And with its perfectly matched band-pass filters and separated amplifier stages, adjustments stay predictable at any time without overpowering tone.

The Delano Sonar onboard preamp is housed in a sealed slim-box, which provides easy, space-saving installation and secure insulation to other electrical components. Its minimal power consumption lets you forget where your battery-box is.

Understanding the differences between the 3, 3MS and 3MS/E:

• The 3 has a fixed midrange at 500Hz.
• The 3MS has selectable midrange of 300, 500 or 800Hz on the preamp module.
• The 3MS/E has selectable midrange of 300, 500 or 800Hz on a switch.

Excellent tone upgrade!

Great preamp with very musical frequency centers. Can be run at 9 or 18 volts. There’s quite a bit of soldering is required. That’s the only thing keeping this from getting 5 stars.
