Good electronics, pots could be better
Razvan, 16.04.2015
I bought these electronics to replace the default(read cheap) ones from a Harley Benton 4 string P-J bass. The installation went smooth; i have consulted their official site for diagrams and schematics, since the package contained no such thing. Since i switched form a 2band to a 3band eq, i cannot really say if the sound changed because of the electronics, or the setup of eq. But it definitely did not became worse. When it comes to the build quality, the pots the ones that drag it down. They spin super easy, and feel a bit cheap. The volume pot is having a weird logarithmic feel;the first and last 10% do not change the volume; going down from 90% to 80% though is a huge difference. Under 80% the volume is too low for me.

Cheap Set for first try
18.06.2014
I bought this Electronic Set for my DIY bass.
It is delivered completely wired. You only have to connect the Output-Jack and the Pick-Ups.
The Sound is really strong and easy to manipulate with the EQ (Highs, mids, lows). The Frequencies are well-chosen and work very well.
Very convenient is the middle lock of the balance controller.

I got a litte humming with this electronic, but it doesn't disturb live on stage.

My recommendation: Use it for easy DIY-projects or first tries on DIY. Or as an upgrade for bad instruments.

Artec se-3 bass preamp
StuartL, 02.08.2014
Good quality preamp, I used it to convert a passive bass to active. It sounds as good as many other higher priced preamps. Easy to solder too as the solder points are a good size and easily accessible. Prewired cables are really neat and tidy. The blend pot works really well. For the price they are, you really can't go wrong, would certainly use one of these again in the case of a similar project.

Unusable
AnarchyBassLout, 31.12.2020
I have had Artec equipped instruments before but this was disappointing. All the electrical connections were soldered over which means you have to desolder them to make reliable connections.

I didn't bother, I'm not going to mess around with a SMT circuit board for hours when the manufacturer could have easily provided solder pins. I put it in my spares box and ordered the Glocknenklang instead. Buy cheap, buy twice.

2 stars overall, 4 for quality because it's clearly well made, zero stars for sound because I haven't heard it. If you don't value your time then go ahead and play with it. I know it's a very good sounding preamp because I've owned them before but I can't be bothered with the trouble of installing it.
