Top Notch Bass Electronics
cortfield 30.04.2011
Easy to install (pre-wired), composed of high-tech components (e.g. the integrated active/passive switch-volume pot is from MEC, same component like in any Warwick bass), german engineering.

There is no any difference between active and passive mode (meaning active mode is not discolouring the original passive tone in flat position of B/T/M pots). In active mode there is no output boosting (0db), hence no volume drop when switched back from active to passive. The electronics itself is dead quiet (no noise at all).

Very clear, very transparent sound. The REAL sound of your bass (and pickups) can be heard! So do not install it into a crappy bass 'cause you will hear the crap:-)

In active mode the Bass/Treble/Mid pots work well. Slightly cutting with mid pot, great slap tone can be dialed. Treble boost works also well and adds pleasent highs. Treble cutting is available in passive mode too. Good idea.

All in all: considering the price/value, features and quality (German made, I assume), this gear is worth the money!

Excellent Bass Pre-Amp from Glockenklang
BassBunny 21.09.2015
I was looking for a new pre-amp for one of my basses and this one seemed to tick all the boxes. I needed one that had 5 controls and a passive by-pass was a must. When it arrived the first thing I noticed is how well made it is. Very small, neat circuit boards were mounted on most of the controls and it looked as though it would easily fit into any sized control cavity. Only a few wires to solder and it was time for a test.
Immediately you notice that with everything flat, there is no audible difference between Active and Passive. Once you start using the Cut and Boost of the active circuitry, the tone shaping possibilities were endless. The centre frequencies have been well thought out and as a bonus when in passive mode, the treble control becomes a passive tone control. Very clever and very useful if your battery happens to die mid set.
Altogether very pleased with my choice as it has transformed the bass I fitted it in.

Good but pricey
markss 18.04.2017
The main reason i got this preamp was to have a passive switch option.
It has very good quality sound and seems to be well made.
You can turn the treble all the way up and still not have harsh sounding result which is very good.
Although i tried to amplify the signal with 100% treble and there is a hiss, a minor one but it's there.
In passive mode, bass and mids don't operate as expected and the sound is really nice, i use passive mode a lot to get mellower tones.

The cons are
Relatively high power consumption (2.3mA) in comparison to other high end preamps.
The pots are sordered on the electonics directly which makes it difficult to replace.
The pots are shorter than my previous ones, i had to lower the cavity.
High price for what they offer.

Josip Jakopovic 24.10.2017
this is the second time I bought this preamp, by far the most versatile and usable preamp of them all, from low budget up to Noll and Mike Pope, the best one on the market is Glock
