Nordstrand 3B-3

Versatile three-band preamp that would be a welcome improvement over most stock systems. Overall very flexible with options for boost and cut, as well as with two mid frequency set points. Pretty transparent in terms of tone, so don’t expect a lot of coloration (this can be good or bad, depending on what you’re looking for).

Well made and easy to install.

Always a joy to purchase from this company

I’ve purchased several items from this company in the last few months and have always received great service. You can’t beat the fine folks at Fat Bass Tone.

Perfect match

This preamp harness is the perfect match to the Blade man J pickups.. I had to modify the cavity/output jack tunnel of my Warwick Corvette , but it was well worth it .
