  • Best On-Board Pre-Amp I've Ever Owned!

    As reviewed by Ewokman1 on 6/7/2010

    I purchased the OBP2 for a retrofit of a passive five-string bass. The bass was very muddy before installing it. The OBP2 added a lot of clarity and warmth to the sound, especially to the low-end. I installed it so I could use two 9v batteries for 18v operation. Which really adds a big difference to the tonal characteristics. I especially liked the additional headroom on the treble side. I eventually sold the bass, however I removed the OBP2 so I could use it in another bass. I haven't used it in a 4-string bass, but I'm sure it'll sound great as well.
