DESCRIPTION

These 2 Band preamps provide players with an uninhibited musicality derived from Carey Nordstrand’s own personal design. With an ideal feature set facilitating their great sound, these units have become popular with high end bass builders who love to install them as standard OEM preamps on their top level instruments. Given that they are available in many prewired configurations, these preamps have become extremely popular upgrades for basses at all levels of quality.

Great Preamp

I installed the Nordstrand 2 band 3 knob preamp into my Sterling Sub 5 with a Bartolini pickup. It's much more usable than the stock preamp. The push-pull to turn off of the preamp is nice to have as a backup in case the battery dies. I love how the treble knob frequency can be adjusted and I prefer it in the lower position. The amount of EQ adjustment is very usable. I can get everything from Motown to modern slap.

Even output

After installing the Norstrand Audio 2 Band Bass Preamp in my custom made bass I have even output from all 4 strings on my recordings for the first time and the great tone is a bonus.
