Musicman Stingray Bass Preamp
In Stock Warning: Last items in stock!
The Musicman Stingray™ preamp is a highly sought after preamp. This is a reproduction of the 1979 2 band EQ designed by Leo Fender that incorporates a volume, treble, and bass control. This could be installed in any passive or active bass. Runs on one 9v battery. With a current consumption of just 44uA, a battery should last years!
Treble Control (+20dB/-16dB @ 10kHz):
This is more treble boost than treble cut. This gives it that "sizzle" associated with the Stingray.
Bass Control (+14dB/-7dB @ 40Hz):
The boost curve rises towards the lower frequencies without flattening out at any frequency. The cut response is shelving, flattening out at 30 - 100Hz when fully cut.
Controls the volume of the preamp. The volume control is hooked up directly to the output jack just like the original. This means the pickup feeds the preamp directly, allowing the best possible transfer of signal.
