Replacement preamp
Pugulis, 17.03.2018
I bought this as a replacement for my previous OP-PRO. I can't speak for how long it will last, as these are notorious for going bad. But when they work, they are some of the best sounding preamps going. There's almost zero noise and the pre-shape Ovation has incorporated is so good, you almost don't even need to tough the EQ. It's actually good enough to record direct, which is rare for an acoustic preamp. Ovation has excelled at their preamp tech, hopefully with this newer version, the problems the older one had (bad volume control) will be a thing of the past.

Same problem as the original part
Filk, 08.08.2017
At 11 months the volume control on the preamp malfunctioned, just like the original preamp that came with the guitar. Other than a recurring issue that Ovation apparently hasn't fixed, it sounds great.

Naja... back-to-the-70s-Batterietausch...
Frank201, 10.10.2012
Ich habe mich lange gegen Ovation gestemmt, weil ich das Näseln des elektroakustischen Anteils nicht so wirklich mag und die Dinger, die ich bisher in der Hand hatte auch akustisch nicht so toll waren ... aber das steht auf einem anderen Blatt.
Jetzt habe ich eine 1771AX-CCB Standard Balladeer ohne OP erstanden, die mich akustisch und haptisch derart angesprochen hat, dass ich sie wieder aufbauen wollte. Nach einer erstaunlich schnell erfolgreichen Jagd auf die mysteriöserweise von Ovation rar gehaltene can (OP-Einbauschale), habe ich mir also einen OP-Pro bestellt. Die zwei Verankerungsklemmen zum Korpus sehen zwar wackelig aus, funktionieren aber erstaunlich gut. Weniger begeistert bin ich von der Vorgabe, die der OP-Pro für den Batterietausch macht: der OP muss mit einem kleinen Plastikknopf entriegelt werden (genauer: man darf den Knopf drücken, bis der OP aus der Einbaulage gefummelt ist), dann mit Fingerspitzengefühl schräg aus der can gehebelt werden. Kein Griff, keine geriffelte Fläche, kein Zugbbändchen hilft. Zudem muss der OP in eine Kontaktleiste einrasten und beim Ausbau wird er von eben dieser auch noch gehalten. Eine absolute Sollbruch-Konstruktion. Und dann wird der Kontakt Batterie/OP auch noch mit einem dieser leidigen Klemmen hergestellt, die gerne mal am Kranz des 9V-Block und an der Klemme selbst Kontaktprobleme haben, erst recht, wenn man öfter tauschen muss. Da finde ich in jeder China Elektroakustik bessere Lösungen .... (extra Fach mit Klappe und Federkontakt). Es sieht also alles mechanisch sehr nach einer schlechten Sparlösung aus oder einfach nach einer Grünentischkonstruktion. Dem Preissegment nicht unbedingt angemessen, wie ich finde.
Die vorgesehene Versorgung über XLR/Phantomspeisung erfordert ein zusätzliches Modul (Anschlussplatine mit Klinke und XLR und ein paar Bauteilen, gibt es auch mal wieder nicht an jeder Ecke und kostet so um die 35-40 Euro ... ziemlich heftig).

Der OP-Pro kommt mit einem eingebauten Stimmgerät, das, offenbar anders als bei vielen anderen Ovation OPs, auch funktioniert, wenn kein Stecker im Ausgang seinen Dienst tut. Prima. Eigentlich das einzige echte Plus.

Einer meiner Gründe, eine Ovation zu probieren (und Originalteile zu verwenden) war meine Hoffnung, rauschärmere Vorverstärkung in Pult oder Verstärker schicken zu können als bei Billigteilen .. Pustekuchen, auch mit frischer Batterie ist der Rauschanteil noisegatepflichtig. Klanglich ist ansonsten alles brauchbar und angenehm, effektiver EQ mit gut gewählten Bändern, handliche Volumensumme.

Fazit: ohne aufwändigere Basteleien gibt es wohl bei Ovation für Ovations keine bezahlbare Alternative. Trotzdem eher enttäuschend von der Konstruktion, wirkt zumindest dann, wenn mit Batterie gearbeitet werden muss, wenig professionell.
