    My preamp is going out in my Thumb

    Any of you guys swapped out your pre for an Aguilar OBP2

    I guess I shouldn’t be asking this question after the fact that I had already ordered based on a few reputable recommendations.

    I'm sure I'm going to like it, but was wondering if anyone else had some experiences with them….anyone notice if it took away / added to the growl?

    I hate 2 band preamp in Corvette GPS and what it does to my Sound when engaged - bypassing always. Im using MXR M81 pedal instead - very transparent. On the fly adjustment is not an issue, so no problem - I cut bass -6db and add trebble 2-3db - happy :D .

    Just sold my Thumb NT6, Got an ok price on it.

    Don't have any regrets as I found after my stage 1 I could not deal with the Thumb balance issues. Plus I'm so used to broad neck know the thumb felt cramped.

    I still have my Thumb 5 fretless so still part of the club !!!

    Update

    I just got this new OBP2 installed last night and I'm going to give it "2 Thumbs Up"

    I haven't gotten it cranked up yet, but right of the bat I didn't notice much of a difference from the original pre. It still has all that famous Thumb growl, maybe a little more mids but other than that, not much of a difference...I'm pretty happy with it.

    No, that's Brucie, '04.

    Just thought the Bubinga was looking rather lovely when the sun decided to make a rare appearance this morning :)

    You still have your Thumb, right?

    Lacie wanted to say hi

    20171203_130332_HDR~2.jpg

    And the Desert Jam Room is near completion.

    20171203_142130.jpg

    Think I'm gonna put the Wicks at an angle. Something like this. Don't mind the $5 prototype set-up. Should turn out nice. Eventually.

    Thanks, Paul! Hopefully I'll be adding another in the next few months.

    Great for slap! Though I'm not too great at slap :rolleyes:
