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.
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.
Like always, amazing service and very helpfull
