Custom Aguilar OBP-3
We made this for the player who wants a 3 Band pre that they can retro fit in their passive bass.
We used to make this as a Vol-Vol setup and many players asked for blend version(not enough room on the plate due to the input being on the plate), this was not possible in a 3 band setup.
This preamp was our answer to not being able to have a blend and a 3 band.
Most players use the blend on a preamp setup in the center, panned back for solos and and panned forward for P style sounds.
Most of the time the blend functions does not have much of a blend on blend setups, in our experience
To get the most tone functionality out of this setup we did away with the blend knob and added a 3 way switch for the pickups
In the center it's both pickups and the other 2 positions are solo neck and bridge.
We have also made this an easy connect setup. This requires no soldering, it just requires a mirco (eyeglass) screw driver to connect.
