    Nice! Always great to see you rockin' the fretless on-stage.

    Thanks buddy! I'm actually very happy with the KPS(?) Thumb, it is light weight and nicely playable.

    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?
