Onboard Preamp for Vader Bass

Postby KyleBass93 » Thu Sep 27, 2018 9:33 am

I have a VB6 passive, but I'd really like to make it active. I'm emailed Kiesel about getting their preamp installed twice and heard nothing back. Considering either the Darkglass Tone Capsule or the Audere. What kind of preamps do you all recommend?

I really like the Warwick ones. I find they're more transparent, in that they'll boost or frequencies but the bass still responds similarly and keeps its character. Nordstrand preamps are really nice too if you want something more colored, they're super punchy.
