poor man's glockenklang
22.08.2016
just buy it! it stands toe to toe with big names popular preamps, you won't be dissapointed. boost and cut, easy instalation, all you need. it behaves musicaly so either cut or boost won't make a crazy mutant unmusical sound, everthing fits. i've tried bunch of high end gear (including fodera) and this one is the only preamp that reminds me of high class mike pope preamps found in fodera. it's just as musical, but ofc lacks some finesses of MPP.
i intended this preamps to be a first hand drop in for two ibanez basses i had without preamps. then latter i'd buy some big name preamp. boy was i suprised. all in all, both ibanez SRs (705 and 668 form '91) still have these preamps and they sound better than ever!

buy it, this thing blows competition out of the water.

Artec SE-2
suirthing, 07.02.2014
Does what it says on the tin, used it to replace a faulty pre-amp on an old Vintage bass, worked as expected - quite easy to fit if you are handy with a soldering iron, all th eparst you need are here. Only small annoyance was the centre of the balance pot was not as easy to find, maybe could have been designed with a "click" when it is at dead centre. Output level is nice and strong and the frequencys of the one controls are well chosen, the treble adds a nice edge without dissolving into noise, bass pot too adds a nice boost to the bottom end. Suited my Vintage V1004 very well, but obviously could be too much for some guitars

Great bass circuit
Little Al, 12.09.2017
I fitted this tone circuit, to my Ibanez, Mikro, short scale bass.
Pros: It was easy to fit, just a bit of soldering. The battery fitted snugly in the control cavity. The transformation was instant, with total control over, bass and treble, overall volume, and pickup balance.
Cons: The only negative would be for anyone who can't solder, as there are a few connections to be made.
The bass was Ok in its original state, but didn't have a lot of choice, in the tone department. The Artec Se-2 circuit gives all the control you need.

Does what it says on the tin
Howard, 22.03.2014
I bought this to replace a failed active circuit in a low cost bass. It is pre-wired, but you do need to solder the pickup, jack, and earth connections. So you need to be able to solder confidently to ensure a good installation.

The preamplifier and balance control circuit boards are quite deep, so would not suit a thin bass, indeed they only just fitted inside my HBZ-2500.

The sound is colourless and completely noise free, however the tonal range is not terribly wide, at least not with my pickups.

I am completely satisfied with this product at this price point. And I now have my bass working again. What's not to like?
