Mike Pope Flex Core Preamp

I had a great experience purchasing my Mike Pope Flex Core preamp from Fat Bass Tone. Max was extremely helpful in helping find exactly what I was looking for. It was promptly shipped, and arrived at my house exactly the way it was described. Will definitely do business with them again.

Amazing Preamp!!

I ordered the FC81 4 band preamp. 2 Pickups - 5 knob & 1 switch
Volume/Tone Stack - Blend - MidLow/MidHigh Stack - Bass - Treble - Active/Passive Switch. You get to choose between 2 frequency points on each band:
Treble: +/- 15dB at 6kHz or 10kHz
Hi Mid: +/- 15dB at 1kHz or 1.8kHz
Lo Mid: +/-12dB at 330Hz or 473Hz
Bass: +/- 12dB at 46Hz or 90Hz
I went with 46Hz-Bass, 330Hz-Low Mid, 1kHz Hi Mid and 6kHz- Treble. This preamp took my Jackson Spectra SBXP V bass to the next level!! It has a split coil pickup design and with the Flexcore this bass is extremely flexible and musical. I love that it has a tone control that works in both passive and active mode. I'm extremely happy with purchase! Thank you so much Max for helping with my last two preamps! Until next time!
