Fitting a K&K Pre-Phase Preamp.
romer288, 15.05.2019
The K&K Pre-Phase Preamp is relatively easy to retro-fit and it connects perfectly to an existing passive K&K system, mine was a Pure classic. I presume it will also work with other non K&K transducers. The additional control and pre-amp has transformed the guitar sound, much stronger output with controllable volume. I haven't had to use the reverse phase switch yet but it's good to know it's there if required. You must remove the strings for this retro-fit. The fiddliest bit of the fitting was removing the existing end-pin jack. This can be done from outside the instrument using a 13mm spanner and a thin pin to hold the jack - I use a small allen key. When you remove the strap knob cap you will see two small holes in the jack body. Place the pin in these holes to hold the jack while unscrewing the nut. Refitting the new jack is the same process but in reverse. Some end-pin jacks use the strap knob to hold the jack in place. In this case you will need to hold the jack with your hand, inside the guitar, while you loosen the old jack and tighten up the new jack. Not the easiest of jobs if you have big hands! You can get a special tube spanner to hold the jack inside the guitar. Thomann also sell a Bullet Guitar Jack Tightener which works from the outside. When you're finished don't forget to attach the old jack and cables inside the guitar body using the supplied velcro strips to prevent rattles. Full fitting instructions are included in the pack.
