"Music Man® Clone" 2-Band Bass Preamp (3 Knob Version)
DescriptionThe Mojotone Music Man® Clone 2 band EQ bass preamp is a perfect replica of the original 2 band pre-Ernie Ball circuit with the original 4250 chip. We even had the potentiometers custom made to have the exact same taper and values as the originals, including the reverse audio 1M pot. Absolutely NO corners were cut which makes ours the truest clone on the market today. This is a direct replacement for original Ernie Ball and reissue basses with 3 control knobs. Volume, treble, and bass.

... still waiting on EBMM, considered this Mojotone again with the intent of nixing the EBMM preamp order to just have a functioning bass a bit sooner. And the preamp is out of stock at Mojotone. Looks like Nordstrand isn't offering theirs anymore, either (as a short fix). Back to waiting out EBMM. :sleep: ... more
