Well, its an extraordinary trout. It’s quality try exquisite, it appears utterly incredible, and it takes on such as for example zero bass We have actually ever starred in advance of (despite my personal hamfisted attempts at fretless I’m sure it’s one thing special). Right here it is to your coming:

Following, I noticed that it absolutely was running a keen EMG acquire improve hence was since noisy since things, and torn one to aside.

Upcoming, anything went properly south. A strange noise build about piezo preamp, and this at some point turned into a not to odd music, and finally no audio after all.

Investigation shown a couple of things – this new ghost acoustiphonic preamp had passed away, and the summing board to your ghost piezo saddles got effectively consumed in itself. I tried many a lso are-solder and extra little bit of dabbling ahead of ripping the whole thing out in a complement out of Uber-rage. It was only mightily challenging that we got a trout and therefore checked unbelievable, played therefore damn well, but was entirely dissatisfied by the an electronic devices bundle you to definitely wasn’t carrying it out justice, of course, if I am honest, try previous it’s a good idea in the 10 years old.

I thought i’d forget brand new honestly terrible ghost summing board and soldered everyone together with her so you’re able to several wires – a hot and you may a footing

Today, become reasonable so you’re able to Jon, it was top-drawer posts whenever based, and it’s really lasted very well. However, my major issue and anger was in search of the ideal replacement – your options was limited at the best, plus in fact pretty much nowt whatsoever. Number one choice is looking like another type of ghost panel and you may replacement preamp. Ugh. I’ll be honest – Really don’t such as the ghost panel. It entails you connect one magazine pickups in it and you can forces one to independent every thing away. It’s messy and it also is not very analytical. tend to attest to brand new pure degrees of anger – and you will he or she is best – merge and you may suits complicated electronic devices was a good bitch.

Just after specific ruminating, throwing chairs and generally impression instead miserable concerning whole topic, into the a fit out of last ditch desperation We emailed John Eastern and just said “Are you willing to do anything that might get this working once more?” (

Of course he might. In reality, the guy said there have been selection galore and i can be virtually features the thing i want. Seemed spendy – but it surely wasn’t.

John Eastern is a beneficial legend of a man. Apart from being a genius, they are sincere, keen and you can utterly enjoyable to handle. I shall say it now in case We ignore – whenever you are planning on updating people electronic devices, head to him first. He’ll types you away. Their equipment is absolutely the best and it’s merely so simple to put in.

Anyway, we talked about choice and i also came up with my personal common setup. John spent some go out ruminating, following returned which have a good “yep – all the you are able to”. So he oriented they, I purchased it, and he sent they. They arrived a week ago:

John’s blogs is thus neat and easy to set up. Offered how much cash gubbins there is certainly within this bass today (instance on double extent there is certainly) it is a beneficial miraculously clean arranged (and just to own is the reason work for – it’s that program from a single brand *bliss*):

– This new Piezo gets into John’s very own Piezo Preamp/Mixer which enables you to put acquire and you can sets just the right impedance etcetera, including enabling you to has actually a beneficial piezo treble move over to treat any quack.

– The fresh new output from this goes into the brand new Uni Pre cuatro – brand new Journal pickup and Piezo efficiency go into the frequency panel and enable regularity, combine, individual controlling gain for each and every pickup, and you will a number of other tuning alternatives

– Truth be told there rest is a fundamental Uni Pre 4 except for the brand new couch potato tone, and this is today a great piezo treble roll off when energetic, and i also have an effective mute key added.


The difference (besides the high quality) is the fact that one another piezo and you can magazine feed to the John’s preamp thus whatever the combine I’m able to get the extremely outside of the piezo and put mids, treble, bass, treble move out of an such like. and now have complete power over the brand new magazine just the exact same. I additionally get a couch potato means which means I am able to have fun with they passively and work on a beneficial enhancer pedal towards the a panel for way more oomph.

Brand new Nordstrand seems like it has to today. The Piezo simply so other – far more full spectrum and much a whole lot more tonal opportunity – from clanky spiky nearly acoustic in order to a real mundane thumpy twice bass sound. The fresh Nordstrand becomes me mids right until my personal eyes bleed as well since you to traditional Jazz brand of voice. Blend them with her and it is such a beneficial Jazz having a massive higher low down thump off a double bass everything in one.

They today indeed appears like it seems. It may sound enjoy it takes on. It sounds flipping higher and though I imagined they sounded really rather a beneficial just before despite the niggles, I’d not a clue it could unlock away along these lines.
