Designed to plug in between your axe and amp, the Fishman Pro-EQ Bass Preamp provides feedback control, photo-optic compression, 5 bands of EQ, and XLR direct out with ground lift, and tuner/send output. 3 midrange bands plus bass and treble are optimized for the electric or upright bass and easily dial out runaway frequencies. The bass slider's range is 30-275Hz which lets you precisely tweak G-string tone. Feedback can also be controlled with Depth and Phase switches. Ergonomically shaped with rubber feet to keep the unit from wandering. Operates on 9V battery or optional AC adapter.

This EQ/preamp totally solved an overabundance of low end "mud" that was plaguing my tone. My Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5 (fretless) produces lots of very low frequencies, and played through an SWR Black Beauty (15' ported cab) this EQ lets me dial in the lowest frequencies that are amplified. For my purposes, the Depth control is the most important knob on this unit and makes it easy to adjust to different sized rooms. My Ibanez EDB-605 also sounds better, although it doesn't need as much low-end cut as the Michael Kelly. Very happy with the unit. It's made it more fun to play since I'm happy with my tone.
This preamp is a MUST for any gigging upright bass player. The impedance buffer is a complete necessity, the DI out will make you the soundman's best friend, the feedback switch is a LIFESAVER while you're on stage, and the compression, depth, and EQ functions give you completely control over the complex subtleties of your instrument's tone. Does an electric bassist need this? No, but its a nice addition. Does an upright bassist need this? ABSOLUTELY. I honestly can't imagine playing a live gig without it.
