Preamp good but watch the wiring
Woodinblack, 17.01.2018
I fitted this on a previously passive Iceman bass. The shafts of the pots aren't long, so I had to do a bit of woodwork and the width of the dual concentric tone control is bigger than a normal tone knob, so the hole needed to be rewired. They give you a good amount of cable to position the battery.

I had a problem in that after grounding the bass, it no longer made any noise and found out that the wires that went from the balance output to the tone input were reversed which was shorting out the board. Taking the pins out of the plug and putting them in correctly (as the silk screen on the board shows) fixes the problem. Also note that there are no instructions with these preamps, although instructions are on artecs website. Everything is wired (even if incorrectly) apart from battery +/- and jack out/ground/switch solder terminals on the board.

Apart from the wiring issue, which is why I marked quality down, the actual quality of the preamp is fine, I can hear no difference with it in or out of the circuit with the tone controls flat, as it should be, and the tone controls provide a useful range of options.

Good upgrade!
Cesar593, 13.10.2017
This is a noise free, reliable and very well built active preamp for bass guitar! I have used it to replace a noisy preamp in an older bass, and I am very satisfied! Not only did the noise disapear, but it now sounds louder and deeper. Don't be fooled by the price, this is a great preamp! Best for the buck out there, no doubt about it!

Artec SE-2A Bass Electronic Set
Dave7727, 27.10.2014
For the price this is a very good set. Was surprised by how little static or unwanted noise there was considering the reasonable price of the product. Would buy this product again if needed. Only problem was with the wiring diagram on Artec's own website. The wiring of the jack socket is wrong in the diagram which could lead some customers to think there is a fault with the set. Luckily i figured this out and am very pleased with the end result.

splendid piece of kit.
this brings a bit more life into the old axe, it does however highlight any earth issues and pick up wiring conflicts.
my aria p2 has a single and hum bucker, they had to be wired in reverse of there original wiring which brought to my attention earthing problems....simple, need new pickups. bummer.
enhances the basses top mid and bass with a real difference.
the blend button is a bit harsh and doesn't really give a lot of range and it wont work full stop without a battery... keep a spare at hand.
real easy to fit and im sure once you got through the positioning and wiring you'll be reasonably impressed. I am.
